I know nothing about this but it came up in my CL feed a few days ago since it mentions a Corvair windshield. I always liked these kit cars but rarely see them completed past this condition. Looks like it was getting close. Say it runs but doesn't drive.

Someone's chop top project didn't get too far. Looks like it used to be Evening Orchid under the deck lid?

Clear and smoked LM front turn signal lenses and a few other cool goodies like LED engine compartment lamps. I'm sure I'll scrounge up some other things to sell too. Cathy and I be in spots 24 & 34 along with the Cactus Corvair Hospitality Tent. To find us, look for my better half who is always smiling!

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?

Probably a relation to the guy on eBay that creates those cross reference lists that results in thousands of "fits Corvair" items that don't fit. :D

Not mine and don't know the seller but was contacted by them to try to find a home before it gets crushed. It sounds like the chassis is days away from being put out of its misery. It's on CL for $250 but he told me he only wants the scrap value. Per the ad, no engine/tranny/interior or title. forsale

At a glance, it sure seems like a good deal to get the mechanical bits you need. Probably get them all for under $1000 if you have the means to transport. Any Corvair built on the last day of production seems like a cool thing to have. Too bad it is now a parts car.

I need a guy like that around here to buy me out! I have over 100 48" T8 bulbs still sealed in the OEM boxes. Genuine GE bulbs made in Canada.I hate to toss all that aside to go full LED. As long as my ballasts keep working I'm using T8's.

Way back in our club history the members voted to allow Corvette owners into the Cactus Corvair Club. It only lasted a few years before it was back to just Corvairs only. Can't imaging why it didn't work out. :) Here is an old club license plate from that era.

It was converted and is owned by long-time Corvair enthusiasts Howard and Marsha Boso of Corvanatics fame. He also has a quad-cab Greenbrier conversion in the background of some of those photos. I think he still has an Ultravan or two as well.

Nothing physically on the engine case itself except the code stamped into the top. Clark's Corvair chart shows RQ as the code originally used to identify a 65-68 140 engine with a manual transmission and smog emissions components.

For those that followed my auction, it is a completed sale now. It's paid for and shipping out tomorrow. Buyer said the date code fit his need perfectly and he didn't want to miss the rare opportunity to get a genuine RR case. It also must have fit someone else's needs pretty close to have 2 bidders go over $2000.

They work great in the dry desert heat. Not so much when the humidity rises. In case you might not like it for some reason, my suggestion would be to buy it through Home Depot as a local return to their service counter is much easier than shipping it back through Amazon or other online seller that doesn't have a brick and mortar store nearby.

It was a long hot summer in Phoenix but now that it is fall and only 100-104F outside, I've decided to make another set of molds to cast more clear LM front turn signal lenses. Anything I make in the next 30 days (plus a few blems I still have from the last run) will be at the TOSS in late October. Online selling will continue after that when I post more info in my old thread. davemotohe

No one was more shocked than I when it sold for that much although, I did have a few people tell me it would go much higher and to wait it out in case someone made a generous offer to end the auction early. It was won by a member here but I'll keep that private for now.

Here in Phoenix they issue "high heat" alerts and then the more serious "warnings" when the temperature is predicted to reach normal daily highs that have been occurring here since recorded measurements began. They talk about not going outside unless you really have to and yet school children are still out for recess and construction workers are still working out in the heat all day. Always cr

The stuff you wondered about in the earlier photos is minor surface corrosion and almost surely from a mouse nest somewhere along the way. It is only cosmetic and on the surface.
