About “red vair”

1967 Corvair Monza Coupe. Bolero red paint. NOS or repro parts were used. Interior was like new and only replaced the carpet and added a wood steering wheel. Had most of the engine parts chromed, including the shroud, air cleaner lid and base, and cross tube. Bought the car 4 years ago from the second owner. 50,000 original miles. Restored to like new.

About “Corsa coupe”

Purchased: 1987

I drove to Brighton, Michigan to purchase this car the night before I took the bar exam. It was one of the most straight, rust-free old cars I have ever seen.

The engine has been rebuilt three times since I purchased it, and the car has been repainted three times, once unintentionally (but that is another story).

The story of the last and most comprehensive motor rebuild can be read at
