1966 Corvair Corsa:A steal of a Deal (sometimes you can find a good buy!)
Purchased in June, here is a classic 140 hp Corvair that required minimal restoration costs and IS a good investment. The engine, rebuilt in 1985, has only 5-10K on it and runs like new. Restoration was less than $700 for some interior rips. The paint job is adequate and uniform, the lower side panels are very glossy but the hoods over time have lost their gloss top coating. On the highway, the car has a very solid feel to it and drives straight as an arrow. It was made in LA and has no serious rust issues.
