picked it up for $250, not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, I'd like to get it road worthy and drive it





I rebuilt the carbs., changed the points, condinsor,cap, rotor, plugs and wires, and dropped the tank and cleaned it, and here's how she sits










I'd like to find someone to coat the tank before I put in back in

when I was in high school, a friend had a turbo monza spyder (convertible). we put chrystler LeBaron interior in it, and had a lot of fun cruising it.........it was much cheaper to drive than my 66 GTO, and the ragtop was great for cruising

I'd love to have a spider, ther's so many being parted out on ebay the turbo setups are affordable,  I thought about picking one up , but I guess I'll get it driveable first

Wow. I dont know, but, if it were me, I would start tearing that bad boy apart and work on a REAL good restoration project. You just dont see too many corvairs around.

I know you are looking at a long drawn out project, but, the end justifies the means here.

I knew where a yenko corvair sat in a barn for years......I always thought it was a fake, so I never made an offer....then someone bought it for $500, and restored it..Now he shows it with all the original paperwork (the owner of the barn had everything)
