Well now, thanks to that explanation, the L87 designation finally makes sense to me!

I did not put in a "L63" designation on my registry entry, but I don't think I should change anyone else's; hopefully people will see your contribution, Dan.

Yep - I don't know where/how that convention got started in the file - I didn't do it - but I agree that the L63 designations should be deleted. So I just did that...

Thanks to Rick for providing the Turbo '66 registry, from which I added ~20 cars to the LOS roster. I also added columns for ACC codes, engine code, etc, to make it consistent with the file Rick provided, mainly to capture whatever info was there. It's an improvement I think!

Here is the link to the revised file - now with 57 cars on it!

Registry of 1966 Corsa Models built in Van Nuys LOS

The file is set to be editable, so let me know if you have any problems adding info to it.

Got it done, truck-in, thanks!

It is a rare (for turbo) "RX" engine. T0924RX. No doubt put in there as part of the turbo swap on my car. The "RX" in a coupe indicates a 1965-1967 AIR (CA Emissions) engine, from what I can gather.
