Hi all. This has got to be THE funnest car I have ever driven. It plain ole loves the corners!
History: This is an early 66 Corvair Corsa Convertible with 140, 4 carb engine and 4speed trans. It was parked sometime in 1974 in a barn where it stayed in hibernation until aproximately 1989. It was than used until about 1993 where it was parked again. I rescued this car in 2004. It went under the knife, sort to speak, for a complete make-over. All of the rust was repaired and the engine rebuilt. This took me about 2 years. I didn't have the engine broken in after the rebuild before I headed to Buffalo, NY for the 2006 CORSA international convention. I took second place in the peoples choice, not bad for a first time out. And an International convention.... I enjoy taking my car out and driving it. It is rarely clean and usually is sporting the kids seats in the back at car shows. I drive it. I enjoy it with my two boys. IMO, that is the whole point of having a car. To enjoy it!
140, 4 carbs, 4speed Corsa. Otto 20 cam, 4 individual air cleaners, one piece flywheel, nylon lower control arm inner bushings and Clarks HD engine mount. Stock interior with FM converter. HD 2 inch drop srprings in front. Stock rear springs. 16x7 Torque Thrust II wheels with 4 inch backspace. 205-55 zr16 BFG tires. KYB shocks.
Rear antenna, tinted windshield and deluxe seat belts.
HD lowering springs, 16x7 Torque Thrust II's, paint and Otto 20 cam. I'm not much into modifications, especially ones that cannot be changed out in short order.
