Vin says Corsa but engine does not appear to be a 140.

Has the 1966 details, too. No axle dipstick, front emblem not on the trunk lid.
Perhaps one of the 425 or so Corsa Convertibles produced at Van Nuys that year.
They are still out there!

I wish I had time to go look. It would be perfect for me. I have a complete suspension, engine, etc., just need a rust free body and the time to make the swap happen.

Isn't there a hole in the front shroud for the dipstick? It's been a long time since I sold my 65 so I could very well be mistaken

Yes, but we know the engine has been changed so it and the sheet metal are probably from a 65. The rest of the car seems to be a genuine 66 Corsa 140 Vert from Van Nuys plant. Why has this not sold yet? smiling smiley

Owner says it's a 4 speed. Black shifter knob says it's a 3 speed.

Probably for the same reason that many nice houses take too long to sell.
Because some ignoramus posted the absolute worst pictures possible!
Why didn't the owner move it away from the other cars?
Wash it and buff it?
Take all of the junk out of the inside and the trunk?
An hour or two of elbow grease, and he could double his asking price!

Seems the seller may be a busy auto repair shop that paid close to nothing for it and just wants something for it but not much.
