No such thing as a Corsa 4-door. If the VIN says it is a Corsa then you know the tag has been switched.

Why? Corsa dash, but a PG, so shifter moved to the console.

VIN listed on ad shows a Monza 4 door, but a 1965 - not 1966.

1965 Corvair script on the hood plus the red 1965 front bar.

Looks like the Monza emblem is below the CORSA script emblem on the front fender.

Personal touches?

Could that be Richard Finch's ("How To Keep Your Corvair Alive" author) car?

That's a pretty nice car despite the horrible ad. Who doesn't use punctuation?

Obviously needs an a/c compressor and condenser. Like me, the builder went as far as changing the glove box door and door panel emblems to Corsa styles. I wouldn't chase it out of my garage!

At least whoever did the mods didn't alter the VIN and body tag trying to pretend it was somehow genuine. Definitely a 65, even the title and VIN say so. Car is in Indiana but titled in Florida.

My friend that passed away from Parkinson's took similar photos.

Seller has Ebay feedback, but not 1 is good.

Listing states "Chevrolet Corvair.corsco " not Corsa.
He should consider updating it to Chevrolet Corvair.mazda.

car might be ok, asside from possible vin & title issues on a car that has been sitting for 10 years from humid Florida & now in the rust belt.

Title matches VIN matches actual vehicle. VIN plate has proper rosette rivets. I see no legal problem at all.

Adding a Corsa dash and emblems doesn't affect anything from a legal standpoint.

The LISTING is a mess, not the car.

The car itself looks good, provided it has no rust. 140 moredoor with PG and AC is a desirable combination. Of course the compressor and condenser are missing, and it hasn’t moved in 10 years, so $12K is a bit steep.

From what I see, the Corsa dash & pad have been painted white, not the black wrinkle finish that all Corsa's had. But it does look pretty nice though. Also, the title says this thing weighs 3600 lbs. Must be a slug on acceleration. Something just isn't right about this car. Or the seller.

Last time I transferred a title from out of state they marked it 3600lbs even though I told them that was wrong.
