Due to a dearth of old American car magazines (sure, you can find half dozen titles on trucks, mostly diesel - there's even a mag for first generation Broncos!), I read a lot of classic Brit car mags. Identifying the car as a Herald was easy. But curious to know, besides the license plate, what made you guys think Egypt or Iran? I would have guessed Lebanon, Beirut was at one time billed as Pa

Matt, All my Ford parts catalogs are from the Sixties, so no help there. Once you have a part number, try this search function: If no one can help you with a number, try Green Sales in Cincinnati, they have all the catalogs and deal exclusively in obsolete FoMoCo parts. Just don't try sneaking any '66 Galaxie parts out the door, those are all mine! Scott '61 BMW 700 coupe '65 C

Wanted to Buy Looking for a 1966 140hp manual trans air conditioned block or engine. Following the recent sale and discussion on the value of the RR Corsa 140 a/c block, not sure I have the resources for an RZ block, but thought I would see what's available. I'm located in Indiana, willing to travel for the right piece, have an engine about ready to go together, so would prefer a bare block,

As others have said, Buster, I love the color/trim combo on your Corsa. I don't remember much about Kessler, but that must be by the back bay? Was that close to the open air auto hobby shop? As a naïve 22 year old mid-Westerner used to working in a steel mill, Mississippi and southern music and culture were eye openers. Hope to get back some day. Scott Keesler AFB "alumnus" October 1974

UnauthorizedServiceTech, Being a gas pump jockey/light bulb - wiper blade - oil - tire - fan belt changer back when they were fairly common, it seemed strange to me that the '64 Impala SS wheelcover was about the only one that covered the whole rim. Am I forgetting others? UST, I like the '63 spinners on your car. Scott '65 Corsa basket case '66 Monza coupe

Did you notice any Corvair "transplants"? I didn't see any BMW bubble cars, Isetta, 600, 700. Do you know if the VW guys reach out to them?

Just found out today the Kelmark adapter I bought is probably for a sbc instead of the hoped for 215. Is that an Art Silva adapter? Wish I'd thought to ask you to make tracings of the faces and measurements for the depth while the drivetrain was apart. Were the previous pistons flat tops or pop ups? Could you have retained the previous pistons by using the 300 aluminum heads with the 54cc com

I bought the Kelmark adapter Jim Stukenborg advertised here a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, neither of us were able to identify it. My Kelmark catalog shows ten different adapters were cast, 5 each for 1964-5 and 1966-69 transaxles. There were no numbers cast or stamped in the adapters, so after searching Google images, I believe this one is for a Chevy V-8. Space between the upper two bolts is 8

I got to the Pittsburgh convention motel Thursday morning, and in the upper parking lot near the vendors was a bronze or firethorn lm two door, a mid-engine with a Corvair engine in the back seat area. I kept hoping to run into the owner and ask how it handled, compared to a stock car. After that day, the engine cover was in place and I didn't get any photos. Is the owner on the forum, or does

The wheels I want to buy only come 15" X 5 1/2", and I need to use at least a 1" adapter for the bolt pattern. Going on a '66 coupe with stock springs and drum brakes, can anyone tell me the "et" I need to request from the foreign manufacturer? Scott '65 Corsa basket case '66 Monza coupe
