Ohhh..love it but need some better pictures...and more of them. I'm a big fan of that era of open wheel racecars...just my personal option, but I would like it better if the tires were skinnier and slightly smaller. Everything else, especially the fake basket of snakes exhaust and intake system is awesome. Kudos to everyone involved in creating and maintaining this neat build.

Im trying to figure out which ships "bright" anodize vs just regular anodizing. I've seen a couple list a clear gloss powder coat over the top of polished alum for a durable, no polish surface. Solo2, you assume this is similar to what was done to the wagon? Thoughts on how similar it appears to factory bright anodized original parts? I'm leary as I spent a ton of mo

Has anyone used or can recommend a shop that will take anodized alum trim, remove the anodized coating, do dent & scratch repair, and re-anodize. I found a few online but I would love to hear from someone who has used a service and what their experience was. Things like 63 front nose trim, 60-64 headlight bezels, 60-64 rocker panel trim, 64 dog legs, etc...

I generally sell at any mini or convention that is within driving distance. I find it a good way to move parts, but if they are common they must be priced to move (lower than everyone else) or you will haul them home. The last convention I setup at, on the last day I used an empty spot next to my swap space and made a sigh that read free/don't want to throw away. I piled all the stuff I

of the many Corvairs I have owned, several had had worn enough tumblers to either work in the door or ignition of a different car. I have a key ring of all the Corvair keys I have owned, plus some others I picked up, and would bring them back when I scrounged salvage yards or looked at car hordes. Many times I was able to open trunks and locked cars with keys on my ring.

Ahhh.RY is both a 66 and 68 code, so RZ is most likely as well as tey did duplicate a couple codes over the years. So RZ "is" a 68 140 powerglide case. I"ll be updating my master list.

Here are the 68 engine codes docuemnted… RA 65-68 95 Manual RU 66-68 110 Manual RV 66-68 95 Powerglide RW 66-68 110 Powerglide RY 68 140 Manual It is odd that a code for 1968 140hp Powerglide is not listed? Perhaps they reused RZ as it would be the next designation after RY 140 manual?

OK, is the VIN on one side of the case and the Engine code on the other? Maybe you have 1/2 of a 68and the other half of a 66? Just guessing without a picture? Here are some "normal" 68 case stampings....

So as a starting point if original to the 68, is it a 95, 110, or 140? manual or PG? **update, nevermind..I see it is a bare block..."**

you might want to verify the numbers or post a picture. The VIN stamp is 68, but the RZ code is for 66 140 w/ AC.

I have one of the Ed Cuneen ones for sale. It was patterned of the original bar as installed in YS-072. PM me and we can discuss as it isn't really shippable. I'm located about an hour south of Chicago.

In my 63, I currently still have my rear seats, but my plan was to pull them and just have the covers on the upper and lower wrapped over foam with a 1/4 inch pine backer board. I don't think I have had a passenger in my back seat in over a decade.

Oshawa production records shows that there were only 24 1965 Corsa 140's built as complete knock downs to be shipped to Anterp, Belgium for re-assembly. There should also be a Belgium body bag in the engine bay with more info.

Yes, as noted above that is an Oshawa Canada built 65 Corsa coupe. It could have been exported as a complete car or a knockdown depending on what the Fisher trim tag says. the Fisher trim tag will be located in the engine apartment and if it was a knockdown there will also be an additional tag from the location it was re-assembled.

I know "where" they are supposed to go, as between the lights protect the tail lights more from another bumper over-riding the cars bumper, but I think it makes the taillight area too busy and takes away from the taillights.

All he had to do was make "enough" basic modifications to the cars to "document" to the SCCA inspector that all met the minimum requirements. After that, the cars could be finished to the buyers choice. He enlisted multiple local body shops to do the body/paint work and th
