Two Corvairs for sale (cheap) in the Los Gatos hills -Just off Highway 17 near the summit. 8 miles out of San Jose. Both have been parked outside for many years, and show it. Owner passed away. Family is cleaning out the residence. First - A 1965 Corsa Turbo Coupe Original 180 motor still installed. I have seen the car and can answer some questions. Los Angeles built. Car has a little crunch in the right front corner, and has a bunch of surface rust - see photos. Lots of other residents have lived there. (Rat @#$%&) and will take a complete redo/cleanout. Car has a telescoping steering column. Might have other options, see the body plate photo. Second car - A 1966 Monza Convertible Original 140 motor still installed. Carbs covered over when stored. Has a PG transmission and bumper guards F&R, engine compartment light. I have seen the car and can answer some questions. Los Angeles built. Car has no visible body damage but has windshield rust - see photos. Again, there is evidence of other residents having lived there. (Rat @#$%&) and will take a redo/cleanout. Might have other options, see the body plate photo. (Hard to read, I know. California Title is now clean (I am told). It will have to be towed, likely flat-bedded. $1000 or offer. Contact me via E-mail at "sethracer@aol.com" and I will put you in touch.

yep - Put it there, too. It is my hope that a Corvair person will bite the bullet and take either or both of the cars. I would hate to see them just hauled off to the crusher. I have no financial interest in either of the cars. I am just a softee! It also causes me to contemplate what will happen to all my Corvair stuff someday.

The convertible is a power top car too. Glad it’s not close.

I know the feeling. After my lung infection - I took stock of things and their importance. It's why I have decided to try to find homes for the Corvair parts cars I have. To put them to good use and hopefully help other Corvair owners, while I have a say and still can do something.

Don't get me wrong. I'm fine! It just got me to rethink some things and what is most important to us.

Whoever buys the 1966 should buy my air-conditioned 1966 convertible for the A/C parts before I chop it up for scrap, and sell its parts off

3000 miles (near San Jose, CA) makes that idea a bit uneconomic...

I agree! But hey, I would take it out there for Fuel cost ONLY - based on receipts. NO joke!
I understand it might not be practical. But it would start from first fill up to I arrive and fill up there.
It would have to be CASH - Half up front and the rest on delivery.

I want to visit my good / dear friend Rod, in Tuolumne CA, who is 80.
I would also like to be able to visit Kindig it Design on the way there or back.

It would be nice to also visit:
Owen in KS
Friends in CO
Ken Hand in MI, on the way back home - as I pass by his place anyways.
And other people / places - as I always try to fit some enjoyment into my trips when I can. GRIN

BTW - I recently removed the sleeper and replaced the seal between the cab and sleeper box with a more permanent one.
Yippee - No more noise or leaks. (BIG learning curve with this build.)
I also made the temporary wooden rails, to help keep DOT off my back, until my friend Kevin can make the metal ones I want.





AC was fixed Tuesday by a Mobile AC guy who came to the shop where my truck is at.
Still waiting on the shop to do the following: oil and filter change, Trans service, replace differential fluid with Synthetic, inspect all brakes, adjust rears, and install a new MC.

Then I get it back and I install the following that arrived yesterday and it is ready for full time use:
Oh, I hope to have the other sleeper box painted to match, either this winter or next. Now that I have learned what not to do with the first sleeper box install.









I can't keep up with Joel. I can only haul one at a time. Grin & LOL

Did these 2 Corvairs sell? I tried reaching out to the owners but was not successful.
