My old boss in Memphis who owns Tennessee Thunder Motorsports called me and ask if I was interested in it, it belongs to his neighbor. I told him as you know I have 2 now I hardly drive. He just wanted to pass it on he said. Told me he knows very little about Corvairs but it looks good.

The exterior color looks like Butterscotch Pudding.

Nice car but quite a bit of 65 66 parts mixed together. Are those 500 model interior door panels?

What is that at the front left of the engine compartment? Oddball voltage regulator?

Yes those are 500 door panels...they match perfectly.

Digging the color combination...a decent buy INMSHO.

Looks like it with those input wires/plug and no OEM regulator seen left of the condenser. The old angled regulator would have needed to be moved when the 66-style condenser was installed.

I'm guessing the factory A/C bits were added later. Not a bad looking ride except for the rub strips that were probably installed back in the 80's.

Used primarily in Corvette, but possibly Cad. It's a Semiconductor Voltage Regulator. The square rectangular area covers a relay for use with Gen Light. Other version without relay is used with vehicles using Amp Gauge.

I would guess the solid state regulator was deemed more reliable to the older mechanical one.

The transistorized regulator was available as a package on mid and later '60s Corvettes and probably other models. The package included the transistor regulator and transistor ignition. High-tech stuff back then.

I looked at this car today and it is in good condition. Paint looks good but does have a couple of defects, small paint cracks area about the size if my hand on front of trunk, small area of bubbles below left lower corner of windshield, small body filler area in right rear fender behind rear wheel and no sign of rust at door hinge area. The previous owner said the car was repainted before he got it three years ago. The floor pans look original with no sign of rust on underside, not a dent in them. The interior is in excellent condition but the dash pad is from upholstery shop not original type. The engine is 95 HP instantly starts and runs good. I did not drive it but owner said he has driven it 70 MPH and it drives good and shifts good. I noticed drops of transmission fluid on pan. Has new tires and new 15" wheels. Excellent bumpers, all glass good, factory AC works.

The car is not sold. I noticed a deteriorating harmonic balancer so the owner pulled the Ad until replaced.

Hi Larry. Just wondering. What is the owners name, I may know him also from living in Memphis thirty eight odd years. He may have been to car shows I've been to.
