Born on the 4th: 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza
It must be getting near the 4th of July because I’m getting that tingly feeling all over my body, which is either the all consuming pride of being a citizen of the greatest country on earth, or some kind of psoriasis. Truth be told…it don’t get much more ‘Murican than ignoring a self-diagnosed and un-treated skin condition, but I’m going to up the patriotism around here with a sweet piece of American history – the most badass aircooled flat-6 powered machine to roam the roads. Find this 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza offered for $6,500 in Westport, WA via craigslist.

Big Like! A little intrigued by the single exhaust. Would want to check out the history on that, as its an awfully narrow diameter and makes me wonder what muffler its running. The only single exhaust cars were the turbos, which was a much larger diameter.
Hah — I knew this one would get your attention. The price seems like something from 10 years ago if you ask me…I bet a buyer could buy this for $5k cash and flip it for $8-10k on that other site.
Way underrated classic.
Right car, right price, wrong coast. Single exhaust is correct for a 110hp Monza, like my old '66. Dual exhaust was only on the 140 hp Corsa.
