Offering for sale a 1964 Chevy Corvair with ~69,000 original miles on the 2.7L Dual Carb 6-cylinder engine and original 3 speed manual transmission.

The car runs well and can serve as a great “daily driver” – or can serve as a solid restoration candidate. Current owner (me) and former owner are both mechanical engineers with years of auto maintenance experience – and the car has been well maintained over the past decade+.

Work within the past 10 years includes:

+ Fuel tank refurbished / new fuel lines

+ Master cylinder replaced

+ upgraded stereo (head unit in glove box)

Within the past 5 years:

+ new tires

+ new carpeting

Within the past 12 months:

+ new spark plugs

+ new fuel pump

+ new distributor / electronic ignition

+ new wires

+ new coil

+ New voltage regulator

+ New battery

+ New fan bearing

+ New oil cooler gaskets (washers)

+ Rebuilt generator

+ Rebuilt carbs

Parts included but not installed include:
+ New convertible top kit with instructions
+ New in-box rear shocks (2)

The car starts right up and runs well. Clutch / transmission is smooth. Prior owner fitted a dual exhaust that gives the car a nice, throaty “purr”.

Note that the 1964 model has a significant improvement to the prior model-years, featuring the first major revision of the suspension, which added a transverse leaf spring as a camber compensator to the swing axle suspension. This makes ’64 a desirable model year for those who like the early model body styling but want the suspension and handling improvements of the later models.

The body had a respray in the late 90s – it looks good overall but shows sign of wear. There are light scratches and scrapes here and there – and there is some significant chipping of the paint on the rear deck lid (trunk) that reveals the primer below.

The interior is mostly original – with the upholstery showing no rips or tears – with wear that is consistent with an older car with low mileage. Carpeting was replaced about 10 years ago. Dash looks good and all items are functioning. There are lap seat belts fitted to the front seats.

The current convertible white top is very worn and should be replaced. Kit is included.

Car is located in Monrovia, CA – just off the 210 freeway.

We have title in-hand.
