1965 Corvair Sedan PROJECT

Unread post by Going4joe » Fri Oct 27, 2017 6:43 am

Challenging Project: 1965 Corvair Monza Sedan. 110 hp, automatic. CAR DOES NOT RUN. Car is in need of a lot of work. Motor, although is mostly new, seized up due to a loose rod nut while running. While the pistons, rings, bearings and crank are basically new, I do not know what kind of damage went on when this thing seized up. I have over $4000 into this car and it now may need a new motor. Car needs interior work and lots of attention on the body. The body has some bondo but no major rust. It could be driven as is once you fix or replace motor. Floor boards are a bit crusty. I was planning on doing a full restoration on this, but after this issue with the motor, I have lost interest in the project. My (huge) loss, may be your gain!!

So those are the negatives. Now, the Positives: work done on this car in the past year - both carbs rebuilt by Raffey Corvair; cylinder heads have been machined, new fuel lines, new distributor, new coil, rebuilt starter, rebuilt alternator, new keys for door and ignition (when I got the car it had no keys), new Clarks custom dual exhaust with modified brackets, brakes have been bled and adjusted (all 4 drums machined smooth), new rear shocks. The short time I had it running, it went down the road nicely, doesnt pull or anything. Full wheel alignment done. Probably the best scenario would be to locate another motor that runs and just swap it into the car. I was thinking about doing this but I cannot justify another dollar spent on this vehicle. I have a son in college and I cant throw any more money into this project. This car is not a junker - it does have potential for the right person to take this project on. Car comes with a variety of new and used parts ( seals, some trim, weatherstripping, etc.). Car is in Central NJ. (note the rally rims in the front pic do NOT go with the car. On the car are the standard 13" wheels w hubcaps as shown in the other pics.).

Pics of interior aren't great because its in a garage at this time and there is minimal light. Back seat is like new. The front buckets are in good shape, a slight rip on the driver seat. Carpet is gone. Headliner in decent shape. Dash pad has a crack in it. Door panels on front doors are off and are trashed. Back door panels are in good shape. You can get brand new panels, ready to screw on, in any color you can think of, from Clarks Corvair, as well as all the other interior fabrics and pieces. I have a complete brand new "fuzzy" set that goes with the car, as the fuzzies on car are shot.

Looking for $1200.

Do you have a picture of the Fisher body plate? Is the interior black?
