WTB : RR CASES!

I know this is a long shot but does anyone have an RR block they would part with? My '66 AC Corsa has a 110 block.

Correct! I recall there were something between 150 and 175 Corsas with A/C.

Here's one I had briefly in 2007 or thereabouts:

Craig N. Coeur d'Alene ID.
66 Black Monza 4dr, 4.2L V8 49k
61 Seamist Jade Rampside 140 PG
60 Monza coupe (sold, sniff sniff)
66 Sprint Corsa convt - First car! Re-purchased 43 years later
2+2 gnatsuM 5691

+17 Tons of parts

ONLY 153 ? ? ?

50+ years later . . .

5 people currently looking for one?

Better luck finding hens teeth!

So that must be like a "name you price" kind of part, eh?

I just sold one, but it was complete with the car. I pieces out another one 30 years ago, sadly it was missing the original motor.

Good luck on your hunt. That is the rarest coded block to find.

Since it's for show... why not just use Loctite Liquid aluminum and restamp?

That doesn't sound really ethical.

I realize that the word RARE, is used way too often concerning our cars, but only 153 made seem to me that this actually qualifies.

I am really piqued, now.

No one has actually answered my question.

Just what is one of these rarest of the truly rare Corvair parts sell for?

Well, maybe we will be able to 3D print as many RR blocks with whatever date codes we want in just a few years (the 3D printer dudes will definitely have to do Corvette parts first smiling smiley).

Here is a thread that discussed RR Blocks back in 2017.
"Wanted RR crankcase" Date: September 20, 2017 01:42PM

I did a quickie search and found a few threads that discussed the RR block and it's rarity. The above one was the only one that showed any hint of a chance of finding one. JMO

I’d pay 500 for a bare RR block. More for a complete core motor.

There maybe could be an RR block that might be coming to market soon.

At least $3500 to one of the 153 Concours / Restorers / Owners of the cars...

$3k to a "reseller"!

I for one am glad that concours correct is generally not in my vocabulary when it comes to my Corvair's.

While there are some aspects that I prefer to be factory stock and correct, reproduction and updated components have their place too.

My main concern is to have a solid well assembled, dependable vehicle that I can drive and enjoy.

Is a Monza 140 with air the same block code? Is the code specific to the model or the engine?

Junk, looking at "The Classic Corvair", pg 25 has all known engine codes.
According to it, 1966 500's & Monzas had RZ & RY codes for 140 with A/C.
RZ was Manual trans, while RY was PG.

So, to answer your second question.

Yes, the RR codes was/is specific to the '66 Corsa Model, and the Engine.

3500? In someone’s dreams. I don’t care enough to pay that much, unless someone wants a 3500 quick steering box with arms.
