WTB: 1965-6 Corsa
Posted by: billh1963 ()

I'm really enjoying my experiences in the Corvair. Weekend drives are eagerly anticipated and the more I drive Corvairs the more disappointed i am in my late arrival to the scene. I like all my Corvairs. But, it's the Corsa that really appeals to me the most. The look, the added horsepower and name make it my favorite.

So, with that in mind I would really like a 66 Corsa to go with my 65. A 140 is preferred. But, wouldn't say no to turbo.

Condition is a question I struggle with. Even though I'm a junk man at heart, realistic assessment of my my free time forces me to focus on solid cars that are are running or could be running with a little effort. So, let's say I'm open to anything from solid and complete minor projects to show cars. Originality is important...not interested in a car that has been heavily modified.

If you have a 66 Corsa that you are interested in selling, let me know!

Thank you

I think you will be disappointed in the 66 Transmission,as the 65 shifts so much nicer. Mike

I thought the 66 is supposed to be a better transmission?

The '66 transmission is bigger and stronger but if you are lucky enough to find a '66 Corsa with a 3 speed- you will be happy with it. Smooth shifts, strong, easy to find reverse, etc.

The 65 definitely shifts much smoother. The 66 transmission can be best described as notchy and they can require more effort when shifting.
The 66 also has slightly less torque multiplication in first gear.

Am probably open to another 65 since my initial understanding on the transmission was incorrect.smiling smiley

I've received a few responses. Anyone else have a Corsa (or know of one) they want to sell?

Thank you

I'm working on a 66 Corsa 140. The owner rebuilt the engine several years ago. I rebuilt the suspension, new gas tank, dual MC, 3.27 gear...

I think he will want to sell it for something north of $15,000. He bought it new just before going to Viet Nam.
