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.

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.

Come for a visit and bring your trailer I mean multi car transporter and you can pick from the ones I have.
I'd rather they go to good use.

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.

I have spoken to the owner about the cars and am waiting for a reply.
