  • The other is a 1933 Ford coupe like ZZ Top’s Eliminator!

  • The Corvair is a good example of an entry level classic car. Prices for convertibles are still very reasonable with most examples fetching in the $10k-$15k range depending on condition, trim level etc. Of course the problem with the ’63 Corvair is that its a 1st generation model that suffered from the swing axle handling problems that caused so much controversy (“Unsafe At Any Speed”). The 2nd gen model (’65-’69) solved those issues but the car’s reputation never recovered.
    Overall, a car worth owning and one that will see appreciating values in coming years, but try to find a decent 2nd gen convertible Monza edition if you really want a good investment.
