Definitely a very nice Corsa but Junky asks good questions as it would be nice to be able to calculate what winning would actually cost. Another question along the same line, must out of state residents have the car removed from the state via licensed transport to avoid paying the ~8% California tax?

Simple. If you removed the engine lid, fenders, and rear panel from your car to allow unrestricted surrounding air to the fan similar as a dune buggy then the rear and side shrouds probably would also serve little purpose. irfgt Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Explain how dune buggies survive then.

Now that Craig has confirmed the car is as nice as it looks the money the seller could actually get is a little bit sad. If this was a Nova or Chevelle people would be fighting for it at his price.

As others have stated, looking and trying to match colors from color charts on a computer screen is dangerous, no matter who the source. Go to a good paint store that hopefully has a comprehensive chip library with the large chips, but in any case only trust the color from an actual chip. FWIW 1964 Corvair color code 938 (Desert Beige) is GM paint code WA2979 - Brown, or PPG/Ditzler Code 2239

I'm not convinced. Picture 1 shows the original cutout Nickshu used for a pattern for his replacement panel. Note the tab at the top of the cutout. Picture 2 is the cutout on a documented Spyder while Picture 3 is the BaT Spyder.

And so you know, the other different parts you will need to convert to a wood wheel are the horn button and horn mounting plate. The horn contact in your original wheel should work. If you can not find original, repop buttons and plates are available at least from Clark's.

Of this style "wood" wheel, the 65-66 Corvair non-tele column is the only Chevrolet with the long adapter so that is almost certainly what it is. It is also rivited to the adapter, the 64 and 65-66 tele columns both have the wheel attached with screws.

Along with the 65-66 turbo 12 plate coolers were also on the 64 turbo and all 140 HP engines.

The Ventshades were only a dealer accessory not a regular production option, they would not be on the window sticker since only RPOs were listed. So other than a dealer addendum sticker leave them off if you are seeking to be "correct".

Your car will not have the metal Protect-O-Plate because Chevrolet started using them in 1965. If the information hand filled in your Manual matches the car then that is the 'in car' documentation that came with your car.

Yup, sure looks like a Delta Mark Ten. They were somewhat popular until pointless systems were introduced. Back in the day several of us would get together for group buys. Assuming all of the components are still good you could use it.

Hey Richard, good catch, I should have caught that. The proportioning valve was tucked under the distribution block at the rear of the driver's fender apron.

As one that owned both a '66 N44/F41 equipped turbo Corsa and a carry-over '66 GT350 at the same time for about 7 years logging tens of thousand miles on both, this has been a fun thread to read. Especially since most of those seven years were living at 7000 ft in northern New Mexico meaning many of those miles were on mountain twisty roads. Will say that in general I agree with what

Easy. Do as Matt suggests, test by hooking the pressure retard to a Mityvac. At least a couple models of Mityvacs are vacuum/pressure pumps and will pump up to 30 psi which is more than sufficient to test a pressure retard.

If a picture is worth 1000 words then here are 2000. On top is the FC box with it's exposed screws above the radio knobs. While not obvious in the picture the holes are chamfered to allow an oval head screw to fit flush with the surface. Below is a car box that show the mounting studs cars use instead.

I would like to buy a late 63 - 65 floor shift lever. All needed is the lever but if you would have a shifter you do not want to split up I'd consider buying it all. Am also seeking the correct radio box. I already have an excellent car box so I do not need another. If it matters I'm located about 100 miles northwest of Albuquerque. Thanks in advance.
