This 1963 Chevrolet Corvair Monza was built by an experienced street rod builder who has a particular interest in constructing unique and unusual high performance Resto-Mods. The car was built over the course of approximately 2 years and included a considerable frame off effort with significant modifications including a custom built chassis, rebuilt 283c.i. V8 Chevrolet engine, Mustang II front end with disc brakes, new rally wheels, S10 4- speed transmission & rear end, and a beautiful custom interior and dash. The car was built as a fair weather hot rod and has never seen rain. However, the original top is included and the original mounting points are in place so it could be added by the new owner. The top is complete including bows, front latches, and other components but the canvas top is deteriorated and would need to be replaced. In place of the convertible top is a custom fit rear cover in color coordinated tan to match the custom seats and high quality carpet.The Corvair has been converted from a rear engine configuration to a front engine layout and a 283c.i. V8 engine with an estimated 300+ horsepower.
