Make sure and check what the FEES / Surcharges are.... We've heard quite a high percentage of the lower priced vehicles

Yea, I tried the Copart thing. I caution anyone thinking of buying. If you can’t see the car in person don’t go by the inspection report or the pictures. The fees are outrageous if you don’t have a dealer license and a business acct. storage fees are compounded daily including weekends.
I bid on a car that didn’t meet the sellers reserve. It went 2 weeks before they decided to let it go. I couldn’t cancel the bid and it was released to me 2 weeks after the sale. Couldn’t get for 2 weeks due to my schedule and when I did get it the runs and drives description was false. Engine had a jumped timing belt. The insurance companies get enough of my money already! The whole process reminded me of the movie Used Cars starring Kurt Russel and Jack Warden.

I did know most of that with copart, just wondering if anyone here knew about the car before listed!

I do not know this car Mark. But if I was 3 hours away I would be tempted to go up and try to buy it (after a closer inspection). Don't forget to bring your car trailer. Everything mentioned about co p is true. And then some.

The VIN plate contains the delivery date, very cool. I have note seen that before. I believe it is stamped by the dealer, most dealers did not bother I assume.

Wow! I had to dig out my title, thought I was seeing things. My '66 LA Monza has the same numbers, just about a thousand cars before this one. Thanks for the warning about CoPart, I would have been seriously tempted to bid, even half a country away.

Most likely Mark has a friend with at least a "wholesaler" license... eliminates a lot... Then a friend with a "retailers" license...who can run it across their books and it's a good deal for both.

I searched "air cleaner" on eBay and now see what should be in those A.I.R. ports in the air cleaner crossover on this LA build car.

"Where built" doesn't matter for smog systems. "Where destined" is what counts. In 1966, almost all Corvairs built for delivery in California had the "Generation 1" smog-pump system. (A/C cars and Turbos were exempt). There was a specific option code for California Smog. As far as I know, this applied whether built at LA or Willow Run. My 66 A/C Corsa - no pump - was built at Willow run, but delivered in California.

Anyone know what became of this car? How much did it sell for? Who bought it? Where it went to?

"The whole process reminded me of the movie Used Cars starring Kurt Russel and Jack Warden."

"Watch Out Marshall Lucky..., It's HIGH Prices!"

I have never made a CoPart purchase but I did do the math. When I factored all the fees I might as well have bought Craigslist Crap instead. I believe they even have a drawn out bid process where if someone bids within a certain time of the end that the bidding get extended. Crazy. Why even bother with an end time.

The buying and selling of salvage vehicles is a different business than regular second-hand cars and truck dealings. It has changed dramatically since the introduction of on-line auction sales and companies like Copart and I.A.A. The goal is to maximize the return to the insurance companies and/or the private dealers/wholesalers who consign their assets to these companies. The fee structure tends to favor the higher end vehicles. Example: If you are buying a $500 Chevy Cavalier as opposed to a $20,000 flood Corvette the add-on of fees would be harder to justify as a part of the total cost structure. Trying to find a real bargain is harder if the title is "clean" and the general public can get in on the action. I used to enjoy the salvage biz, but not any longer. And I don't think I ever bought a Corvair at a salvage auction. - CP
