1966 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa
Car for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Bought new on November 22nd of 1966 from DeHaven Chevrolet in Fort Wayne Indiana to a Mr. Charles Bell where he lovingly took care of this car up to 2013. Original documentation from the purchase, buyers order, Protect O-Plate, owners manual, shop manual, original title, original inspection, and registration accompany this vehicle. Mileage and travel documentation included on their initial trips and service records. Even the original license plate comes with this fine automobile. Car was cared for and it is evident that it was used sparingly since new given the original mileage of 64k miles. Car was sold in 2013 to gentleman in Leo, Indiana where he took the car to where it is today. Full restoration was done to this car including much more than listed; full body restoration with all panels painted and properly adjusted, all new chrome bumpers and trim features, all new carpet along with new seat covers and door panels. Brand new custom period correct gray top that matches the rear tail light assembly that was factory equipped. Most convertibles look better with top down, but with this deviation of color, this might be the most stunning Corvair in existence. Further enhancements include new rally wheels with brand new BF Goodrich white letter tires and new boot cover for the convertible top. Engine was gone thru and proper engine out service with engine bay cleaned, painted and all fittings were new. New insulation cover was installed and stickers to represent how the car was delivered when new. New clutch, exhaust, bearings, fuel pump, gas tank, sending unit, brakes, dual exhaust, battery, ignition, retro Custom Autosound stereo with AUX hookup, new dash, new vents, and many more items were installed and fitted properly.
The car remains in excellent condition with less than 200 miles logged since many of the repairs. The car looks like a million bucks and demands attention. With only two owners since new and the rarity that this car represents, this is a wise investment no matter what you think of the Corvair, with low production numbers and a huge cult following this is the one to buy.
