Value of 1965 Corvair Corsa Convertible

Thinking of selling my Corsa, market seems to be all over the place, from 6-7k to over 20k.

The Good: Clean body, mostly rust free, decent chrome, 15" GM Wheels with low mile son white letter tires, new front bucket seats with headrests, new windshield, mostly everything works, does not leak oil. Runs, starts and drives well, gas gauge, thermistor and speedo work, 4 speed auto, newer carpets, rear seats in good condition, trunk clean, power top works, clark's tonneau cover

The Bad: Odometer doesn't work, tach of by 1000rpm, clock doesn't work, 140 engine is not number matching, top is in fair condition.

Thoughts on value?

Unless there is a lot of rust hidden somewhere or it is really ugly underneath I agree that 10-15k is the ballpark and if it is sharp in the engine bay and underneath maybe even a little more to the right buyer.

Thanks. I am really torn. I see it sitting and feel guilty but I do not have a strong desire to drive (got a 911 cabriolet 997/1 six speed last year and for pleasure drives it is the bomb).

Will gather up some detailed pics once I get some time.

1965 Chevrolet Corvair History
VIN: 107675W117572

My 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa was manufactured at the Willow Run, Michigan plant in the third week of September, 1964 for retail as a 1965 model. The car was first sold by a Chevrolet Dealer location unknown. The car was then traded in to Robert Motors, Inc., of Auburn, Washington.

On May 5, 1967 they sold the car to a man named Mills. Mr. Mills then moved to North Carolina and applied for a title and license in North Carolina on May 25, 1973.

On February 2, 1976, the car was sold for $300.00 to Mr. Shope, in North Carolina. He kept car for six months then gave the car away to a Mr. Lee, local resident who is now deceased.

Car location was unknown from 1976 – 1992. Was supposedly in a warehouse from approximately 1992 – 2002 in Alabama, as painted with no top, no interior and a 95 horsepower engine.

A Mr. Matz of Lake Worth registered the Corvair in Florida on November 26, 2002. On December 30, 2004, the car was acquired by a local Palm Beach County resident and long time Corvair enthusiast, Corsa Club Member and mechanic. Mileage was listed as exempt. He kept the car for nine years. In 2013 he put the current 140 horsepower motor in from a different 1965 Corvair he owned.

I purchased the vehicle with unknown mileage on July 17, 2013 and have owned and maintained since, driving approximately 3,000 miles.

Car is in my garage in West Palm Beach, I have kept garage storage for 7 years

Wow you have had that car 0for 7 years. Seems like it's only been a few moths. Its a nice car and well taken care of over the years. Even if you change the oil 2 times on one day.
