Few cars offered turbocharged power in the early and mid-1960s, but Chevrolet had such a vehicle, with its Corvair Monza Spyder Turbo Convertible. Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder were produced in limited numbers and proved that Chevrolet was willing to take chances by designing an efficient, high-performance sports car. One of only 4,761 Turbo Spyder convertibles built in 1964, this example features a rebuilt turbocharged engine with approximately 1,000 miles on it and its a lot of fun to drive! The previous Nevada owner kept the car garaged in pristine condition!

Assembled in GM’s Willow Run, Michigan factory and sold at Jack Dankel Chevrolet in Allentown Pennsylvania, this car has undergone a comprehensive restoration and features new paint, interior and carpet.

The Seafoam paint and trim are in overall excellent order. The bodywork is straight and solid, the factory black, power-folding convertible top is in very good order, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery appears new and the cargo area is good, original order with a spare wheel and tire. The car’s chrome bumpers are in great condition.

The Corvair rolls on new BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, size P225/60R15 at all four corners, mounted on factory rally wheels, which are in very good shape.

Out back, under the vented hood is a numbers matching, YR block, rebuilt, turbocharged 164 CID air-cooled, flat six-cylinder engine with MSD ignition. Backing this motor is a four-speed manual transmission.

Inside, the new black vinyl interior is in overall very good order. The front buckets and rear seats are in excellent condition, as is the matching carpet. The factory two-spoke steering wheel is in very good order, as is the instrument panel with its full instrumentation and silver gauge surrounds plus its dual cockpit styling theme, borrowed from the 1963 Corvette. The inner door panels are in similar condition. The floor-mounted shifter is topped with a white ball. A factory AM/FM stereo completes the interior.

The 1962 – 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder was an efficient, high-performance sports car.

Though the Monza Spyder was announced in coupe and convertible form in February 1962, production actually began in April. Despite all that went into it, the Spyder package (RPO 690) cost only $317.45. Orders soon exceeded capacity — this was just not a car that could be built quickly. Of some 150,000 1962 Monza coupes, only 6,894 emerged as Spyders, and there were only 2,574 Monza Spyder convertibles out of over 16,000 Corvair ragtops built.

Though there wasn’t much about the outside of the Spyder that made it recognizable (script, turbo emblems, a hunky tailpipe were the main points), the engine compartment abounded in chrome-trimmed components.

Inside, there was no mistaking it: in place of Corvair’s standard and sparse instrumentation was a round 6,000 rpm tachometer and matching speedometer, with gauges for fuel, boost, and temperature. All were set into a brushed aluminum panel and matched by a similar panel over the glove box on the right. The radio also had a brushed aluminum plate, and a turbo emblem was on the horn button.

In 1963, Spyder production was up by over 100 percent despite a strong decline in total Corvair sales: 19,000 were built, of which about 7,500 were convertibles. Volume fell in 1964 to 11,000 (4,761 convertibles), but by then Corvair sales in general were well down. However, the technology lived on in the 1965 Corvair Corsa.

The survival rate for Monza Spyders was relatively high because people knew at an early date that these were singular cars, remarkably limited in numbers for a company like Chevrolet.

Though the “standard-size” behemoth was still the quintessential Detroit car in the 1960s, the Spyder proved that one company at least was willing to design an efficient, high-performance sporting machine for the enthusiastic driver. As a contemporary ad read, “the Spyder’s thrust is not so much hot air.”

Competition to this Corvair in 1964 include Austin-Healy’s 3000 Mk. II, Buick’s Special Convertible, Chevrolet’s own Chevelle Convertible (which was new-for-1964), Dodge’s Dart GT Convertible, Ford Falcon Futura Convertible and Mustang Convertible, Oldsmobile’s F-85 Cutlass Convertible, Plymouth Valiant Signet Convertible and Pontiac’s LeMans Convertible.

If you’re seeking one of the more unorthodox vehicles to ever emerge from an American corporation, this Corvair Spyder Turbo fits the bill. You should stop by today to check it out today.
