Below is my 1963 Corvair Monza 900. This little Corvair has been all over the united states with the original owner as he worked in the Air Force. The gentleman retired in Idaho and I now own it. The engine was rebuilt by Moffitt Bratton racing in Boise, Idaho and the interior has been redone. Other than those few things it is almost original. Thanks for voting!

Beautiful early!!! Glad to see someone else entering!

Here is my 1965 "Corsamatic" It is a Corsa with 140 4-Carb engine mated to a PG trans!

Bought this last year, rebuilt the left two carbs and replaced the starter to get her home from Travis AFB. The car is registered as a 1965 but every detail makes it look like a 66

The Corsa dash was slotted to accept the PG Auto shifter but left stripped and "chrome" so that I almost blinded myself on the way home... it is now painted properly. Then I upgraded to LED dash lights

I replaced the rear taillights to be 65 style.

Painted on the Yenko Stripe with the help of my daughter.

Added the chin Spoiler

My Wife was kind enough to gift me a set of Crager SS 15x7's and a set of 205/60R15's for my birthday in November!!!!

Chopped one coil off the front springs dropping the nose 1.25" over the Christmas Holiday

Latest upgrade is that I made a center console with front and rear drink holders.

Next upgrade in process is I am making a TinTail for her.

1966 Corvair Monza 4 Door Hardtop 4 Speed with Factory Air Conditioning and Fold Down Rear Seat.

As found and purchased by me. Good solid car that has been in our area for years. Starts, runs and drives. Needs the obvious paint, interior and 3 small rust spots repaired.

All the calendar cars can't be pretty and shiny!

It took 2 1/2 years and thanks to my friends Jimmy and Rod with some help from me its done. Purchased it in Kentucky, I just wanted a driver. I had not had a Corvair since the seventies. Well it turned into a total restoration. Rod built the motor a 140 with a Isky 270 cam and headers, it sounds great. Jimmy did all the body work and painted the car. It had very little rust. Every nut, bolt, gasket and bushing has been replaced along with chrome, tranny, front end and interior. I finished it off with 15 inch torque thrust rims and BF Goodrich radial T/A tires, 205/60s on front and 225/60s on rear. So lucky that we have great vendors from the west to the east coast, I used a lot of them. I have not had the courage to add up the invoices and probably never will. Should also thank my wife for putting up with car parts everywhere.

1965 Corvair Monza 140 HP with PG transmission.

It has the original interior and it came with an AM/FM radio.

I purchased this beauty last summer and the only thing I have done to it is add the accent pinstripes.

I runs and drives great. I'm just waiting for spring to roll around so I can get it back on the road.

Thank you to everyone for your support! I think we all know how aesthetically pleasing all Corvairs are. I am proud to be a part of this wide community of support and advice for all generations of Corvairs.
Sincerely,
Nyle
