RED ON BLACK CONVERTIBLE, RECENT PAINT & INTERIOR UPDATES, 4-SPEED!!

The Corvair always marched to its own drummer, and today it's probably the most underrated collector car of them all. With great performance, stylish good looks, and impressive economy, it's a great hobby car for our times. This '64 Corvair convertible in brilliant red makes for a wonderful summertime cruiser that is just unusual enough to generate a ton of attention.

It really is hard to go wrong with a bright red ragtop, and the humble Corvair delivers a funky 1960s look that always attracts attention. You can see shades of the Bel Air in the rear 3/4 view, there's a hint of the upcoming Camaro in the profile, for an inexpensive car, the stylists seem to have put in a few late nights making it look right. The restoration continued that legacy, giving it a better than average finish, and the bright red paint shines better than anything they were spraying in the '60s. That crease that wraps around the body runs in an unbroken line across every panel on the car, and they all line up neatly, so a good amount of time has been invested in the fit and finish. The Corvair, of course, has no need for a grille, but the trim that is on the car has been neatly polished, along with a set of chrome bumpers that sparkle.

Inside, the Corvair offers room for five thanks to a handsome bucket seat interior. It appears that the seat covers and carpets were installed fairly recently, but the door panels and dash are original and starting to show their age. Thanks to the rear engine, the floor is completely flat, adding valuable legroom front and rear, and nobody will be complaining about spending an afternoon in the back seat. Gauges are sensible and basic, and although the lens is a big cloudy after nearly 50 years, all of them are fully functional. The original AM radio is still in the dash, and that's a Hurst cue ball shifter atop the 4-speed manual transmission, which makes this Corvair a blast to drive around town. With the engine in back, the front trunk is spacious, wearing a fresh coat of gray spatter finish paint.

You're also in luck because in 1964, the Corvair got a larger engine, thanks to a longer stroke. Now displacing 164 cubic inches, it makes 95 horsepower, and in the lightweight convertible, performance is lively. The rear axle was tamed thanks to a transverse leaf spring like the Corvette's, and the heavy-duty suspension was standard equipment. The flat-six engine is distinctive in the rear engine bay, with its wide air cleaner and elaborate fan belt routing. It's highly original under the hood, but quite well maintained as well, so it starts easily and drives well thanks to a pair of carburetors that look to have been rebuilt not that long ago. Thanks to a new stock exhaust system, it has a traditional Corvair grumble, and tires are affordable 175/70/13s on factory steel wheels.

A fun little summertime cruiser that's great around town and attracts attention like a much more expensive car. Call today!
