For sale in our Chicago showroom is an unbelievably low mileage 1963 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 900 Spyder. After sales of the Corvair began to pick up after its introduction in 1960 the "Need for Speed" was recognized and thus the Spyder was created. The standard flat 6 made, at most, about 100 horsepower. On the Spyder, it was ditched in favor of a 150 horsepower Turbocharged 6 cylinder, which was rather peppy in such a small car and this unit came equipped with the optional 4 speed manual transmission which makes driving this little classic a true pleasure.
This burgundy metallic beauty is all original, with the only exceptions being a handful of maintenance items and a set of new â??redlineâ? tires. The original interior is covered in custom fitted plastic covers and is remarkably well preserved - and why shouldn't it be? After all, this time capsule has traveled just over 2,230 miles since new! Be sure to check out that custom headliner and the ultra-cool "Spyder" rear seat cover! One turn of the key and this turbo 6 cylinder fires right up and sounds fantastic. If you have ever wondered what a new '63 Monza Spyder drives like now is your chance to find out.
Nice, solid Corvairs are getting harder to come by and finding an original un-restored car is even harder yet. Finding a turbo-charged Monza Spyder with less than 2,300 miles is nearly impossible. This trophy winner is ready to reap more awards and accolades and plenty of thumbs up and smiles along the way.
