John & Teresa Miller have a 'thing' for Corvairs.
 Welcome to the affordable vintage car. 
Almost 2 million were made, gas mileage is good.
 They drive and handle like no other vintage car: 
Unibody construction,lightweight aluminum engine. 
Many features in today's autos came from the technology
 developed in the 10 years Chevy produced Corvairs.
 The only car proven safe on US highways in a court of law.
All Electric car?  Corvair did it better than Volt 50 yrs ago.

 1965 Monza 140hp powerglide automatic. 
 Another very nicely optioned late model convertible. 
 Power top, wood wheel with telescoping column.   A 'boomerang' Corvair.   We have owned it before, rescuing it from a car lot in Des Moines in 2010.   Recently residing in Canada, we are thrilled to have it come home in Nov 2017

1965 Monza 110hp 4 speed
 Another sharp late model convertible, this one has the beginnings of being a GREAT Corvair.  Brand new interior, new top, new boot, it has needed some work to get it running right. 
 The car is in luck, it's in the right place! 

1967 Monza 110hp power glide automatic.   This Marina blue convertible came to us from Omaha NE with 27K miles on it in December of 2012.  2017, we turned 37K miles and it's still a joy to drive.   John has changed items only when absolutely necessary.  2 years ago, new shocks and only a few of the original push tube o rings! 
Amazing, the car still has the original exhaust. 
Changed the driver's seat back vinyl due to splitting,
the interior is original other than that. 
It was repainted in 2013.  The original paint just didn't do the car justice. 
1962 Monza wagon  84hp power glide automatic.
ONLY 2362 were produced for the first half of 1962, Chevy discontinued the Corvair wagon half way through the year.  
Originally had the cloth bench seat, we replaced it with
 bucket seats.  The black 1962 reproduction vinyl from 
Clark's Corvairs is highlighted with stainless buttons.  
We're very pleased with the outcome.
 Heated seats, new stereo and the new wheels & tires, this baby IS on the road after more than 20 years in storage. 

1965 Corsa Coupe 140hp 4 speed 
A Canadian built Corsa, less than 1200 built.  One year color:  Evening Orchid and the 795 interior is a winning combination
Speaking of winning:
Convention Concours 2017: 96.33 Senior Division award!   
If we'd had time to fix the radio and driven to convention,
it would have been better than 98 points! 
Not too bad our first timeout in the event. 
The car was restored, in its original configuration,
not a created Corsa nor did it have a color change.
1964 Monza 110 3 speed
A true rescue.  The car was last licensed in 2000.
 Sold out of an abandoned property,
it hasn't run in quite some time.  It appears to have been a
concours quality restoration, some years back from the
St Louis "show me" Corvair club.  We'd love to hear from
someone of that area that might remember the car. 

1960 Monza sedan 80 hp power glide automatic. Basically the car from the first year brochure.  This is a nice older restoration. 
The previous owner loved using NOS parts and it shows.  Down to the reproduction bias ply tires and original style roof rack.
 It could use a little touch up on the restoration now,
but what a sweet driving, very solid car.  
1963 Greenbrier 140hp powerglide automatic
A very clean, almost rust free van, the engine and
transmission were built to work together for probably
the quickest Greenbrier we've ever driven.
We have plans for it, recovering the seats,
repainting the interior, as it's very original. 
 We'll enjoy some patina for a time, but John is in favor
of repainting it in the original Danube blue.

1963 Rampside 80hp 3 speed   Out of Oklahoma, it might look a little rough, but the body is VERY straight for an FC.  Rust less than the typical for this age, the bed is solid and dent free as is the body.   Fall/winter of 2017 this one will go in for the body and paint it deserves.   Engine is still a work in process, it runs and drives, but it will need some tinkering before it's ready for any long road trips.
1966 500  95hp power glide 
 Nice paint job, it'll make a great driver or 
project car...an engine switch is in its future.

1960 Monza Coupe   80 hp power glide automatic.   An older restoration, it could use a little work, overall a great car!  
Mostly, it needs to be DRIVEN!  
NOT a corvair, we know.  The 1975 GMC Eleganza II motorhome will become our home away from home, our Corvair transport vehicle and fits right into our 'groove' for classic vehicles.   A direct descendant of the Corvair Ultra Van, the GMC sports a lot more power, a lot more space and there is a dynamic 'cult' following.   GMCMI is an international organization so dedicated that they Rally twice a year.  Built from 1973 to 1978, we're excited to have the coach in the collection.    

We have this wonderful habit of rescuing.   From Corvairs to our 1960 Mid Century home, we believe in life after neglect. Only a mile away, we found this 79 Barth motorhome.   Like the looks so we tugged it home.   Lo and behold, but no surprise, John got it running in about one afternoon session.   Sounds great!   Plans are to use it as a guest house for visitors and it just plain looks cool here!  
1963 Monza Yard Art
Having a little fun with this 63 barn find from a neighbor. 
Floor pans are gone, engine is locked up, a long time mouse house, so we thought it would look FINE in the landscape. 
Another for the "non Corvair" category.   Then again, ours isn't a "for sale" website.  Hobby people, rescue is mostly what we do.   Find cool things and enjoy them until we're ready to let go and find something different.   Different is this 1968 Datsun pickup.   Been saying I dig these for a few years but they're usually all rusted out.  Found this one near Webb city.  It's original, runs and drives just fine.  Neither fast OR furious, we like having this little truck around.
