If it is a genuine 1966 A/C Corsa with the correct original block, it will make someone happy if they know what it is to begin with.

Another rare one if its legit. I dont see the spare tire mount in the trunk but maybe its the lighting. Cool 66 regardless

I see several clues that the A/C was added later. Would have to see the body tag codes to convince me it is original to the car.

It does have a 107376 VIN so a genuine 66 Corsa.

Looks like a nice car. I called the guy asking for the build plate and engine number. I will post it when he sends it to me.

Has to be original - ad say says it has 4 cylinders.

Hole in sheet metal by distributor indicates a CA smog engine - or maybe smog sheet metal was used?

No deck lid.mercury switch or throttle solenoid.

I'm betting that trunk rust is just the beginning.

Look forward to the trim tag...doubt it has a 2E.

The 1966 model year Corvairs with A/C sold in Calif. were exempt from air injection emission controls.

There should be no Calif. "smog" sheet metal if the car originally had A/C.

I had a 1966 4 door Monza 110 PG with factory AC from the Van Nuys plant. It had the hole under the dist. I think they were just sloppy in where they installed those smog outlet ducts. I cut the bottom out of a tin can and used that to cover the hole. True Corvair repair lol.

In addition to the lack of spare mount in the trunk, there also does not appear to have ever been a fast idle solenoid on the fan shroud. Still nothing wrong with the AC being installed by a dealer or PO. You just can't claim the rarity of a factory AC Corsa.

It is NOT the lighting.
There is DEFINITELY NO spare-tire mount in that trunk!

So....When did they develop the A/C mount to allow rear mounted spare on a 140 with A/C?

If you're looking for a true Corsa with air here you go.

Seller is one of us here and a no B/S straight shooter.

I've seen it...it's a ground up needs everything project.

As the C/L ad states there is no RR block coming with it.

My 66 four door was a Van Nuys 110HP A/C PG car. Fortunately it had the correct engine tin, but considering most of the 110 Van Nuys cars had emmissions equipment it makes sense they could have used that tin by mistake or necessity.

My car was missing the fast idle solenoid, but it DID have a nice hole in the fan shroud were the solenoid was mounted - LOL.

It also had the low compression heads that I think C. Nicol first mentioned were installed on 66 110HP cars with A/C.

I had an unmolested 66 Corsa coupe with factory AC that was a LOS car. It was sold new in Texas. A 10C car. There was no emmissions sheet metal on it. It was built as it should be.

As far as I know, all spares on A/C cars were mounted in the front.My initial post was regarding the trunk area lighting.(in the front)

Corvairs sold in Calif. in 66 with A/C or Turbos were exempt from A I R. But wasn't A I R available as an RPO on naturally aspirated cars in 66?

In the trunk like all of the factory AC cars I have had.
