1965 Chevrolet

Corvair CoRSa Spyder Turbo

Red with Black interior, Red carpeting and Black convertible top, Restored, 4-speed manual, 180 HP Flat Six Cylinder engine.

Introduced in 1960, Chevrolet designed a revolutionary new car. The Corvair was powered by an air-cooled horizontal six-cylinder engine made almost entirely out of aluminum. The engine was mounted in the rear of the car, driving the rear wheels through a compact automatic transaxle. Suspension was independent at all four wheels. There was no conventional frame, it was the first Unibody built by Fisher Body. The styling was unconventional for Detroit, subtle and elegant, with no tailfins or chrome grille. Time magazine put the Corvair on the cover and Motor Trend named the Corvair as the 1960 "Car of the Year. The Corvair was the first production automobile to come with a turbocharger as a factory option.

A dramatic redesign of the Corvair came in 1965. The new body showed influence from the Corvette Stingray and the 1963 Buick Riviera. The Corsa was the top of the line sporty model for 196566. It was the only model available with the optional 180 hp (134 kW; 182 PS) turbocharged flat-6. Corsas had "full instrumentation", special emblems, and trim with a special Argent silver painted rear cove area and pinstriping on the 1965 models.

This Corsa Spyder Turbo is an older restoration that shows extremely well. It has been in long term, collector ownership and cared for impeccably since its restoration.

A fast, fun vintage convertible with documented history that is ready for immediate use.
