The second generation Chevrolet Corvair was introduced in 1965. The 1969 model was basically a carryover, but with fewer offerings. The lineup was down to three offerings: a 500 coupe, a Monza coupe and a Monza convertible. This was the last year of Corvair production with the final car, an Olympic Gold Monza coupe, coming off of the Willow Run, Michigan assembly line on May 14th of 1969. Only 6,000 Corvairs were produced in 1969.
This 1969 Corvair was custom built for Bill Mitchell, at the time, Vice President, Design, General Motors Corporation. It features a special pearlescent tangerine paint with Daytona Radial Spoke wheels and an engine modified for a few more horses. Mitchell had several special Corvairs built and this is the last of the series. It is totally unrestored and new resides in the General Motors Heritage Collection.
