I just had someone ask me a question about '66 LA-built cars, and was wondering if the '66 LA Corsa Roster was still around. When I went to the link, it said I needed to ask for permission. Does anyone know if it's still out there as a Google Sheet file?

Here is the previous link to the online Registry of 1966 Corsas built at Van Nuys (LOS): Eric66 --Registry of 1966 Corsas built at Van Nuys (LOS)

Can't remember if I was a part of this list or not. I have 66 Corsa Coupe Vin #107376L111016. According to the body tag, it was manufactured in the fourth week of February 1966 (02D). It was originally built as a 140, but somewhere along the line somebody put a turbo in there.

I can't get in the registry, but I have requested access.

Could you post a pic of the body data plate, or at least the body number? My '66 Turbo Coupe is #1457, 3rd week in March...

Could you also post the body # or a pic of the body data plate? 113148 is the highest Corsa VIN I've ever seen from LA.

Last VIN built at LA for 66 ends in L114003...

I assume WESTDS also meant his VIN was 10737L113148 and this Fisher tag should belong to it...

and I don't have the VIN for this one, but it is 14 bodies later...so theoretically a higher VIN if built in sequence...

So I dug through my records...I have 127 1966 LA built Corvair Trim tags documented.

There are none produced after 03D (Presumed last week of production at Fisher Body until a 04A shows up )

Here are the 03D's I have....

Rick, that's outstanding! What is the latest turbo coupe you have in your archive? Looks like #363 for the convertibles based on the "W 40" notation.

I created the "1966 Corsa LOS" spreadsheet online 9 years ago with an email account that no longer exists! So, I cannot access it, unfortunately. smoking smiley
I'll try to find a back-up I might have made years ago when I get some "spare" time....

Asper your request- notice body sequence and vin are exactly 1000 apart- At first glance I thought there was a screw up at production- I've since read that sequencing and vin often (usually?) didn't match.

Folks, here is the latest of Dan's spreadsheet that I had copied years ago. I've added a few to it as I came across them. Also added Rick's list (at least the VIN and body numbers as he listed).

Dan - if you find a later copy, feel free to update this one or send to me and I'll merge it in. Thanks!

Again, this is just for '66 LOS-built Corsas. It's set to be editable by anyone with the link, so feel free to add any additional info you have for each. I'll make sure it's backed-up.

Here's my body tag. I updated the register, as well.

Question: Where is the "L63" code coming from? I don't see it on the tags but every 140 is listed in the registry as such.

Mine doesn't have an L63 on it anyway, and neither do the tags above. Since it was changed to a turbo I don't suppose it matters much.

L63 is Chevrolet "Regular Production Option" RPO code for a 140 HP engine.
This is incorrect for a Corsa - the 140 HP engine is standard in that model line.
(only the Monza and 500 models were eligible for an RPO L63 engine option)
The RPO L87 Turbocharged engine was the only engine option for Corsa.
