FS - 1965 Corvair with AC
Posted by: chrischris ()
Date: October 24, 2022 08:42AM

Was stored in a garage for the last 30+ years. The engine turns, but we haven't tired to start it. The title was lost, but we're trying to get a replacement.

Cool! 500 - A/C - 3-speed! Can't tell which engine.

I'd love to have it! No room at the inn.

Enjoy the Corvair!

This car brings back memories for me. I used to own (briefly) a 65 500 4 door, 110 with 3 speed WITH A/C the same color. I wish it was closer.

I used to go to school 20min from here. Wish I was still that close. The A/C alone is worth the price.

Missing the 65’ ac air cleaner but pretty decent old car I’d say.

Also missing the entire A/C condenser but hopefully that and the air cleaner parts are in the trunk. At least the electric-over-vacuum fast idle canister seems to be intact.

Don't scrap it if nobody else buys it give me a month or two, tax time at the latest. Need to get something fixed so I can tow it. Youngstown OH?

Also, before I commit, any rust holes or bad rust anywhere? I don't care about that giant dent for $1,000, it'll add character lol

I can't wait months as I need to sell the car soon. $800 or it's going to the scrapyard next weekend.

What does the underside of the front floors look like?

Enjoy the Corvair!

Wish I was closer. But you won't get 800 from a scrapyard. Suggestion: take a deposit from one of the local buyers that need more time. Come to an agreement. Then wait a short time as per the agreement.

Stored for 30 years.
Need to sell immediately.
Cant' wait.
From the sounds of it, I would guess this is an Estate Item, and there is NO PLACE to store it.
Why is anyone worried about rusty floors??? confused smiley
The parts alone are worth more than the asking price.

Someone GO GET THAT THING ! ! !

IF the floors are bad, then part the thing out.
If they are good, then drive the thing and have fun with a Classic Beater/Driver!

500's with air conditioning are not common.

I won't use the word rare about this Corvair.

I added a photo of the build tag to the Craigslist post. The car was my dad's. He passed away recently and my mom put her house up for sale two weeks ago. The house sold and we need to get everything out by December 1st. I'd like to sell the car this weekend as I have nowhere to store it. The floors are pretty solid, there's only one hole and on the passenger's side.

Oh, and we found the title.

The first ad expired, so I renewed it here. It's still available.

It's getting towed to the scrapyard on Thursday. What parts should I remove beforehand?

Unfortunately, the correct answer would be "Everything" but I suspect that can't happen in this instance.

There are several parts specific to the Air Conditioning system that are difficult to come by these days but, it would take a good amount of effort to identify and remove them unless you are intimately familiar with these cars.
Even the engine block has a code stamped on it that is specific to A/C cars.

Even if you were able to save every valuable part off of the car, you would still need to transport and store them until homes could be found.
The best and most effective method of storing the parts would be to leave them intact and find someone willing to take the car whole.

It is sad to hear that so many valuable parts will most likely disappear but they can't all be saved.

After the car is gone, it would not surprise me that someone that rarely visits this site will reply the live around the corner and would have taken it if they had known about it...It seems it often goes this way.
