Hey, Ralphie: ’64 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder
The Corvair actually turned out to be a decent car. Granted, its shaky start is legend and it made Ralph Nader, well, Ralph Nader. When you think about it, GM engineers had the chops to get the Corvair right. Look what they did with the Corvette. Today’s featured Corvair is a really rare turbocharged Monza Spyder 4-speed. What else could you have wanted back in the day if you desired a modern American sports car that had a back seat? Our Monza is in great colors too. We like the burgundy paint and black interior. If you want to keep this one stock, leave the fake wire wheel covers but if you get creative, get a period correct set of alloys and some decent tires. There are ways to tame the twitchy handling so we would consult the legions of Corvair aficionados for technical advice. This one looks like it is all done with nearly $20,000 in recent restoration work. That makes this somewhat of a bargain since the asking price is $17,900. Hagerty Valuation Tools gives us a range of $13,000 to $25,000. Not bad for a car that not only made Ralph Nader famous but pioneered turbocharging. Click here to contact the sellers.
