Corvair with "Beach Boys in Hell" Mural

All Corvairs are interesting, given the unlikely idea of a GM with an air-cooled, horizontally opposed six cylinder; but most with automatics aren't worth a look.  This one's a bit of an exception, given the "unique" presence of a Beach Boys and flames mural.

This car appears to be in amazingly good and original condition.  The seller notes a few flaws, but this is 52-plus years old.  If it was 100% stock, it would be worth picking up at the bidding price just for flipping; but the mural changes the equation.  This car is looking for just the right owner.  Could that be you?

Yes, folks, that's a mural on an otherwise amazingly stock 1964 Chevy.  Is it just me, or does this depict the Beach Boys in hell?

Side is all flames.  Even the hubcaps appear to be stock.

The script on the rear says Bozzo's Limo, which is a limousine company in New Boston, Michigan - far from the seller.  We're confused, but maybe that was the previous owner?

The seller mentions some minor cracks in the instrument cluster, but it looks to be in good shape for its age, as does the rest of the interior.

Upholstery looks great!  There's not a lot of support in these seats, however.

Here's the unusual flat six.  It looks complete and original.  Sadly, there's no turbo here.

1964 Chevy Corvair

The chrome and bright-work is in excellent condition.  The interior is very nice.  Some wear on the drivers front seat and a door panel coming loose on the passenger side.  There are 2 cracks in gauge panel which are purely cosmetic.  

The paint is in good condition with no major scratches or dents.  Some wear is visible.  The graphics, beach boys mural, and flames are very well done and burried in clear coat.  This is a real attention getter.  

Mechanically, the vehicle is nice.  There is a small oil leak (probably from the pushrod tubes which is a common problem).  The "gen" light stays on so the belt may need an adjustment or something else may be wrong.  There is a new voltage regulator.  

Tires, brakes, etc seem real good.  I have a spare set of brakes to include to the winning bidder.  

Glass is nice.  

Great cruiser for the summer at a very family-friendly price.  

Interested parties are encouraged to see the car prior to bidding.  Any pickup and transportation is sole responsibility of the buyer.  No warranties or exchanges.  All sales are final.  Any questions, let me know.  


This is relisted due to a non-paying bidder.  DO NOT BID UNLESS YOU INTEND TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON THE TRANSACTION.  I don't know how to make that more clear.  Car does not leave until funds clear the bank.  $500.00 non-refundable deposit due via PayPal within 48 hours of the Auction Ending.  If this does not happen, I will file a non-paying bidder claim against the winner.  If you want it delivered to Des Moines Good Guys on the dates listed above, deposit must be made before I load the car.
