And it is my first Corsa Turbo! Fills a big hole in my collection. Now I just need a Loadside.

Joel,
I noticed that posted on the for Sale Mega-Thread & would have gotten it if it was closer to me because I thought it was as good value.

Will you be getting it running, parting it out, or just hanging on to it?

Congrats on the turbo 65 Joel. I've owned several turbo Corsa chassis but they all we purchased with V8's in them so I've never actually owned a proper turbo'd Corvair, early or late.

This one has some pretty bad rust in the front but it came with a replacement nose and lower windshield panel. I should fix it since it is my only one. I'm working on an EO turbo convertible so it may take that spot.

I have a '66 Corsa 140 coupe I'm probably going to let go at some point. Believe it is pretty rust free - have to look at it again.

I know someone in Northern Virginia that could potentially have a use for a solid 1966 Corvair depending on the price and overall condition.
Although he is not currently looking for one, he really needs to be which is why I am posting a potential interest.confused smiley

Actually what he needs to do is to organize them by model year, series, then V.I.N. order.
Then each time another is purchased, insert it into the collection in proper order.
That ought to keep him busy enough for a while.eye rolling smiley

I should’ve probably also said that it is a project. It is a complete car to the best of my knowledge. Honestly, I haven’t looked at it in five years.

I've thought about organizing them by year but that is really pain when I add cars.

If I could figure out how to do that without damage that would be great!

Stacking without damage is easily accomplished but it takes some planning and effort.

All you need to do is Pave the Lot then install lifts like the ones shown in the attached photo's.
The lifts are a mere $7K and change (each) but look at the benefits.
The vehicle below would be protected some from weather (Like all that Snow you get in Texas) and any potential leaking fluids or rust falling off the above vehicle.

I mean, what is not to love about this method.
All you need to do is spend about ten thousand dollars to park and store two vehicles with estimated combined values of anywhere between fifty dollars and priceless.
Multiply that times two hundred vehicles and you are in debt for life.confused smiley

I saw this style lift for the first time about ten years ago while visiting the Studebaker Museum in South Bend Indiana. [tufflift.com.au]

One vehicle that I recall was the 1959 Studebaker Lark prototype with a rear engine configuration that appeared to be a Volkswagen powerpack.

Another was an Avanti four door prototype body and a station wagon with a sliding roof above the tailgate area.

Thanks for the correction.....memories can be so vague.
I went back and looked. The sign on the vehicle indicated it was a 1964 Prototype.
Also included is a shot of the four door Avanti shell I saw.
This was an amazing museum to visit. I probably took a couple hundred photo's there.
I also visited the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart, IN that same week. It was also another one worth the visit. [www.rvmhhalloffame.org]
