CK's 1965 Chevy Corvair

CK's 1965 Chevy Corvair 

The Chevrolet Corvair (Corvette & Bel Air) wasn’t like your average car during the 60s and 70s, consisting of a rear engine, rear wheel drive layout. Unfortunately, it was also the same car that was infamously targeted by Ralph Nader in his book, Unsafe at any Speed. Our customer said otherwise, stating that the car was “classic, fun, and enjoyable.” That’s when he purchased this car from a dealership in Florida and transported it all the way to San Francisco. When it arrived, we had to push it off the transport truck, since it was unable to start and drive under its own power. Chuck purchased a 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertible. We went through the car and discovered a few things that needed attention. 

At first, acquiring parts was very challenging, but we were able to find a good, reliable source that offered replacement parts. The car underwent a few safety repairs, such as brakes, electricals and an engine tune up. The carburetors needed attention as well, since it had most likely sat for a while before the engine was last turned on. After the work that we had performed, Chuck’s Corvair was able to see the road once again, running smooth with its Flat 6 engine and 3-speed automatic. We work with our customers to fit their schedules and demands, and no one is an exception. We do whatever it takes to satisfy our customers, and that’s our ultimate goal. One day, you might see this red Corvair Monza Convertible roaming around in San Francisco with a big smile from our customer. Thank you, and have a great day, everyone!
