64,000 Miles, California Car
Very Clean, Original Interior, Low Mileage, 1963 Chevrolet Corvair Turbo Monza Spider featured in Black Exterior with Red Interior, and White Convertible top. This 1963 Chevrolet Corvair features the RPO 690 Code for Spider Package, which starting in 1962 was offered on only the top of the line Monza Club Coupes and limited-edition convertible cars. One of the most noticeable differences between the basic Corvair and the performance edition can be seen in the vastly different instrument cluster. Displaying slightly different engine gauges, it also features a 120 MPH speedometer with trip odometer and a 6000 RPM tachometer. Equipped with a four-speed manual transmission and a performance oriented 3.55:1 gear ratio, the spider left the factory with a polished new turbocharger mounted above the engine. This configuration, pulling air through a single carter side-draft carb, allows the turbo's 3-inch turbine impeller to produce up to 10 pounds of boost and pushes a normally 104 hp engine up nearly 50%, to over 150 HP.
This vehicle has been a West Coast car since new and recently came available from a very reputable collector. Sale includes manuals and paperwork.
