Corvair Monza Spyder


Recommended Posts

I have a 64 Corvair Monza Spyder. Turbocharged 150 hp stick car. I would like to enter it in high performance at Hershey but saw no listing in high perf categories.

carfem,

If you look at the Official Judging Guidelines:  https://www.aaca.org/images/judge/2020_Judging_Guidelines.pdf the factory High Performance vehicles are in Class 36 (starting on page 4-17)

 

36. FACTORY HIGH PERFORMANCE VEHICLES The Factory High Performance class has been developed especially for performance oriented domestic vehicles, from their beginnings in the 1950s thru their "heyday" of the late 1960s and early 1970s and on. Eligibility for vehicles in this category is evaluated on a case by case basis, taking into consideration individual merits such as weight to horsepower ratio, the manufacturer's actual intent, 4-18 and the era in which the vehicle was built. These are just a few of the qualifying points of consideration. This class is a work in progress and will continue to develop over time. Applications for additional vehicles to be added to the existing list of accepted vehicles must be submitted in writing, along with any accompanying factory documentation, to the VP Judging for review by the Specified Class Committee (SCC), which will make a recommendation to the Judging Committee. The name and address of the VP Judging can be found in each issue of the Antique Automobile. Always check AACA Headquarters for the most current listing of accepted vehicles in this class. NOTE: "v" refers to carburetor barrels.

I would think the 57 and later Chevy with fuel injection would be considered high performance...also cars with 2  4barrel engines.

The Chevelle had a late 65 396 SS option that is not listed above.

While the Corvair Spyder might not be considered high performance to some.... Yenko made around 100 Corvairs that did very well in sports car racing.

I know, it is hard to draw the line and the cars might be listed in another class.

Barney, there is a process to add additional cars to the HP list.  Someone just needs to submit the documentation and request that it be added to the list.
