Ever see a modified example of one of your favorite cars that looks about perfect? Maybe it's the color or wheels, but you know when you see it and you instantly want it. How about this little red Corvair?
Find this 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa currently bidding for $6,700 reserve-not-met with 1 day to go and a buy-it-now of $14,800 on eBay, located in Sheboygan Falls, WI.
DT's own resident Corvairentologist Hunsbloger says bidding on this one should reach to $12k easily, its always those last $3K that are hard to come buy unless someone else has your same taste. Absolutely love the stance, chin spoiler and wheels/tires on this one though. Cutting the springs isn't the best way to lower height and maintain ride, but the engineer inside me says F=kx...what is the problem?
You pay a huge premium for the turbo, but most owners could just as easily be satisifed with a Weber set up. The 180 horsepower rating comes from the days of SAE gross horsepower estimates and the 2.7 liter turbocharged flat-6 will be lucky to put 100 horsepower to the pavement.
A quick look inside shows a nicely preserved or restored interior and, of course, the required 3-pedal setup. The middle pedal will be shockingly effective because it has updated brakes (dual circuit master cylinder).
