I've decided to sell my beautiful blue '65 Corsa on Bring A Trailer. The car is too nice to drive and I really don't like worrying about something happening every time I drive the car. I've sold other cars in the past for the same reason! Anyway, BaT has asked me for the early history of the car. To be honest, I really don't know much about the car. I do know the car

I get a kick out of the "tires are fine....they have lots of tread" response when I ask a seller about tires on a car I'm interested in. For a daily driver you will probably wear out the tires before they age out. But, on a collector/weekend car you'll almost certainly have to replace tires due to age. You would be amazed at how many car enthusiasts (especially older one

I've had these on my aircolled Porsche's for several years and have them in two of my Corvairs. Engine damage or not is immaterial to me. If you have an engine fire you already have problems. The cost of rectifying potential engine problems is nothing compared to potential loss of home/garage or even a life.

Good thought on the stuck float. I'll have to check that. This car sat for almost 10 years. If not a float issue I guess I'll be buying Bob's book and a couple carb rebuild kits

Finally got the tank back into the '69 Corvair with all new hoses, sender, etc. Tried to crank her up for the first time in many years. She wanted to start but lots of fuel started leaking around the passenger side carb so I stopped the attempt. Is the carb leaking or is the carb leaking at the base? I really don't want to rebuild the carbs but will if that's the consensus.

With many states still locked down and all the issues we face, I am thankful I can get out and drive my cars. Took a few of my cars out for a 50 miles trip (each one ) today and forgot just how much I enjoy them. I truly enjoy the Corvair and really can't believe that they haven't become more popular. But, I guess that's a secret I'll just have to enjoy on my own.

I think you are right. But, I haven't see that before. I'm trying to figure out if these are shoes the factory installed in 1969 or something aftermarket.

Both rear brakes on my low mileage '69 Monza have these grooves on the leading edge shoe. I don't remember seeing these grooves on my other Corvair brake shoes. Were these factory or some aftermarket gimmick?

I know these cars were unloved and very cheap (and still are) for many years. It's amazing some of these cars are still running with some of the "repairs" made to them. Maybe it's a testimony to the robustness of their design and the air cooled engine

Spent the morning dropping the fuel tank on the '69. That went reasonably well. The inside of the tank was perfectly clean. But, I'm glad I dropped it anyway. The fuel hoses were bad and I didn't even have to cut the big fuel inlet hose...it tore apart in my hands! After lunch I started replacing the brake hoses. The rear passenger side went well. But, as I started the rear driv

As I get closer to getting my '69 back on the road I'm starting work on the brakes. As most of you know, the '69 had a one year only brake hose/wheel cylinder combination. In my research I have read that some people have replaced that with a 65-68 hose and wheel cylinder. Although I would prefer to use the correct parts, with Clark's being closed until After May 4th (maybe)

Nice! I’ve got a couple of those....even won a couple of trophies at British car shows If you haven’t joined already, consider becoming a member of the American MGC Register. They have a good magazine (“C” Notes) that I was editor of for a couple years.

Drained most of the gas out of the '69 fuel tank today...I can still smell that old gas on me...lol Anyway, I've got to figure out a way to get the remaining gas out. Once I do, what's the best way to clean the tank? I took a picture of the tank with some gas still in it. Doesn't look too bad. Thoughts?

Thank you for the feedback. This is a documented under 50k mike car I bought from the original owners family. I do want to keep as many original parts as I can.

Started the process to get the '69 Monza back on the road. One area that will need attention is the brakes. The pedal goes to the floor. My plan is to replace the rubber hoses and either rebuild or replace the wheel cylinders and brake master. I'm pretty certain the brake master is original. So, is it better to rebuild original components or replace? Thoughts?
