RealRides of WNY - 1965 Corvair

Now that Chevrolet had the Chevy II to wage war in the compact car field, they could expand on the Corvair’s marketing strategy. One magazine ad told us the all-new-for-1965 Corvairs were “…longer and wider…racier, roomier, flatter riding…with quicker steering, surer stopping, and more power available.” And this Monza, which had been the top-of-the-line, now took a back seat to the new, sportier Corsa. The Monza however, had one thing that the Corsa didn’t — a unique-in-its-class, handsome four-door hardtop (bottom photo)which was also new for ’65 and took the place of the previous generation’s four-door sedan. We saw this gold 1965 Corvair Monza convertible a couple of weekends ago sitting amongst a plethora of discarded taxi cabs in Niagara Falls.
