WTB: Corvair Corsa / New Member!!

Hi,
I'm looking for a 140 Corsa/Monza to add to my very small collection. In high school (40 years ago) my best friend had one and we drove it all over the SE...including to the races in Sebring. Now that I approach retirement I am looking for a car similar to the one he had to relive some of my youth ...lol

I'm in South Carolina but am willing to travel anywhere in the CONUS for the right car. What is the right car? A nice 140 hp car with 4 speed that is pretty much rust free and ready to drive.

Let me know if you have a car like that you are willing to part with. I'm not a flipper or dealer (I use this same username on the porsche, triumph and MG forums I frequent. You can check me out, if you wish). Your car will have a good home!

Thank you,
Bill

Welcome Bill. No help on the car, I can help steer you to other Corvair people in SC if you're interested. Where abouts in SC? Too late for the spring show but there is a great Corvair show in Maggie Valley in October.

Chris Shades cars look pretty good and he is a fair Corvair dealer as well a member. How about next month in Pittsburgh at the Corvair Convention? Cars always seem to be at these events "for sale".

Still looking for a Corsa coupe. After looking at a few I realize that my purist tendencies are strong and I prefer one with original paint colors, original style seats, etc. Mechanical upgrades are fine (e.g. brake upgrades)...just cosmetically I prefer the original look.

Also, I am open to a Monza with a Corsa dash and a 4 speed.

Hi Bill- where in SC are you? I live in Charlotte but head to the coast frequently.

I am about 16 months into my Corvair life and this is an amazing group! Lots of knowledge and they are always willing to help!

Hi Jim,
I'm in the Columbia area. I agree about the helpfulness of Corvair owners. Last weekend I attended a local Corsa chapter meeting. It was a great bunch of people....lots of knowledge and very friendly. Looking forward to getting my first car and joining in😄

Bill
