1962 Chevrolet Corvair Convertible

1962 Chevrolet Corvair Convertible

NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY

Some 8,000 Corvairs were stockpiled at the GM's Milford, Michigan Proving Grounds in preparation for the October 1959 launch; 250 were "swimmers" (caught in a flood) but cleaned up, reupholstered and sold. Gas mileage could be as high at 26 mpg. highway, until the VW-style gasoline-powered heater was fired up at a loss of 6 to 8 mpg. Unibody construction with welded front fenders, a first for GM, meant that Fisher Body employees aligned the whole car.

For consignment a resprayed 1962 Corvair Convertible which does not currently run. It has the Monza 900 option with an automatic transmission, that is in fair condition exterior wise, and fair to poor interior.

Exterior
An Ermine White respray has been painted on, some of it over rust areas. Chrome bumpers are dented but show without corrosion or dimpling. Britework and badging are all there, presenting in poor to fair condition. A black convertible top appears intact, however has some insulation? hanging from the inside. The rear window is fogged plastic and not clear. All the lighting on this car is untracked and in good condition. A tinted windshield, and a heater are added options as well.

Interior
With years of neglect, we note missing parts, ripped vinyl, and taped areas on the seats. This car has two front buckets which reside very close to one another, and a rear bench, which is not taped or split open, but is very dirty. An original standard Corvair padded dash is upfront, and does not show any cracking, some fading and is all intact, even the original radio. Also noted is a direct air heater, which will heat, but will also cut down on gas mileage. The steering wheel is original. Carpeting is original and appears a bit dirty and faded but has floor mats that are made from carpeting.

Drivetrain
The standard 145ci engine is fed by (2) 1-barrel carbs and sits in the unrestored (original) engine bay. It is attached to an automatic transmission. Be reminded this engine does not currently run or start.

Overall a barn find condition Corvair, dents dings dust and rust, and does not currently run.
