RealRides of WNY - 1964 Corvair

Came across this 1964 Chrevrolet Corvair Monza back in 2004 parked in the lot of a Wheatfield restoration shop. This would be the final year for the first-generation air-cooled, rear-engine compact from Detroit. Model year 1965 would see a complete do-over, including the loss of the pillared coupes and sedans, which were replaced with two- and four-door hardtop body styles (the latter which was the only one available in the American compact car category). The ’64 models weren’t changed much from the ‘63s. The brochure mentioned a horsepower increase for the base engine, and some new trim pieces for the front and rear exterior.
