Factory A/C Corsa on BAT

LA built. Wonder if it has the OE block?

Looks like nice driver. I don't like the white interior paint, though.

It should do well...

No, it is a service replacement block.

Looks like an older restoration but not bad depending on where the bids end up. The duct tape in the trunk and the paint cracks in some photos are not encouraging. Single exhaust on a Corsa? 3rd week of November build date.

Why do I keep seeing some 66 factory A/C cars without the fast idle solenoid? Wasn't that a standard part of the A/C package?

I know several peple who delete the soleniod when they switch to a modern compressor. The old A-6 was a huge load, but newer designs like Sanden are not.

Yes, but I sometimes see LM A/C cars that the owners claim are untouched originals with no solenoids, no holes where one used to be, no wire jumper from the A/C clutch or marks on the throttle cross shaft where the tab would have been mounted. That is why I wondered about the lack of the solenoid on supposedly "untouched" cars. Did that happen? The Corsa on BAT has owner mods so I know it might not be a good example of what was original.

Fair price so far on the bids, originally had a black top.
