No turbo exhaust cut out.

Seller lists engine code as TI221RC??

Gonna ask the seller for a bodytag pic.

There's a pretty good chance that's my first Corvair! How many Red/black 66 Corsa / Sprint originally 140, now turbo convertibles could there be? When I sold it in 73, it had 45k miles and was in concours condition. :-(

Did yours have that SPRINT emblem above the radio?
What actual SPRINT equipment was on yours?
Don't see much on this one.
There is a small funky switch on the instrument panel...

You have the numbers off of yours somewhere?

Yes, actual Sprint equipment: Aeon rubber springs, Koni shocks, steering stabilizer, original 140 had the secondary linkage mod and Fitch's individual air cleaners, flash-to-pass lever, rear emblem. Did not have emblem over radio, as I recall. The deck lid on this car has been changed. Maybe they moved the Sprint emblem to over the radio?

Also noticed the two-gauge under dash unit. I had it in the door but recall the guy I sold it to said he moved it. It had a mechanical (long tube) oil pressure gauge that's still connected at the engine. Same blacked-out areas (headlights, under rocker trim, and rear cove. Rear bumper guards but not front. Almost no doubt in my mind now.

Here's a shot with the tonneau cover and in the second picture that you can see the red-painted Roberk sport mirror. It's amazing the (wider than stock) aftermarket door edge guards are still in place.

I wonder if it got rear ended since the quarter panel "C" emblems and holes are gone, along with the "no emblems" deck lid?

100% positive now. I just watched one of his videos and the two-gauge unit I installed is still in the driver's door! This is my first car. Now what do I do?confused smiley

I saw it listed yesterday as well. I was racing at Hallett this weekend. Too bad it was not listed sooner, I could have detoured and taken a look at it.

I say you pony up and get the old girl back!!!!

You have to buy it back and spend the the rest of your life apologizing for giving it up.

That's exceptional! Although it's rough in places, it's certainly restorable.
It will be a beauty once again when you are done bringing it back to its glory.
It's all yours! I'm not bidding.

You guys are going to get me divorced!

First words out of wife's mouth: "Don't even think about it!"

Craig's reaction: Laid awake most of the night! LOL


It's amazing to me how the car has changed so little, configuration wise, after 43 years. The fog lights and the little console between the seats (vertical 8-track tape player) are gone and the second set of gauges have been added but that's it. It's like the guy I sold it to just drove it 60k and parked it.

You inspired me to buy the AC Corsa and I'm glad you did. I'm trying to return the favor - you won't regret it! Your wife will look great in the passenger seat as you make your way to the picnic by the lake on a warm summer day.
