1966 LOS-built Corsa coupes
Posted by: Eric66 ()
Date: December 26, 2010 11:08AM

There seem to be quite a few 1966 Corsa coupes here that were built at the Los Angeles plant. I know there were 7,330 '66 Corsa coupes made, but how many were produced at the LOS factory?

Mine was built 12B and the VIN is 107376L105877. Anybody close to that?

Interesting question. Not sure of the accuracy at all but somewhere I came to believe
that 1966 was not an official production year for the Vairs at Van Nuys.
The cars produced there were the left over stuff from the 1965 production (bodies).
Like I said, no assurance this is true, we need to ask Dave Newell I suspect.

P.S. This info nugget indicated '63 & '65 as official production years at VN.
Anybody know if there are '64 Los Corvairs?

Were all 1967-1969 Corvairs built at the Willow Run plant?

Ed--earlier than the date/sequence number I gave above?

Was '66 the last year for Corvair production at the LOS plant? Did they stop mid-year?

Wow, nice! That car must have a build date in August 1965? Maybe it was the first '66 Corsa made at the LOS plant.

Steve...what is the build month/week of your Corsa? By the higher serial number it must be around February '66?

Mike...does that mean yours is the third '66 Corvair off the LOS assembly line? What is the build month/week for that one?

Sorry, Mike, just realized I missed a "1" in there. Yours must be from about March '66, right?

Steve's must be from April or May then.

I want to say it was late Feb or early March. Car is stored off site, but it was well into the year. My '66 Monza LOS car is 111633 and it is a March car.

tkalp...as in 108923?

That car must be one of only a handful of '66 Corsa coupes with AC built at the LOS plant.
