Re: County98's Start to Finish LM Stereo Install

Looking good. My stereo hole has been butchered, such a shame. Think I'll try to find a plastic ring like yours to hid the overcut.

Re: 65 Corsa Convertible project

I love those IROC wheels, a straight bolt on, hassle free and really give these cars a good stance. I just wish they were so easy to obtain from this side of the pond. Car looks very nice indeed.

Re: 65 Monza 110 PG Vert in Blighty

Hi y'all. Sorry it's been a while since I updated this thread. After the breakdown I parked up the Vair and she is still there. I had some friends visiting me at the end of August (a bank holiday here in the uk) and we were going to a car event which lasted the whole weekend and the intention was to...

Re: Naming cars: I don't think its weird

Here in the UK (unless you have a private registration), the plate stays with the vehicle. Most enthusiasts I know give their car a name, usually female, based on the digits of the registration. Mine is PWT129C and haven't come up with anything yet. Patricia perhaps?

Been offered some engine bits...

A friend of a friend had a Corvair many years ago and kept the parts he got with the car. He's asked if I might be interested in buying the parts. There's a mix of brand new and old. He's got a new engine case which I'm wondering whether it's compatible and he's sent me a picture of the number on it...

Re: 65 Monza 110 PG Vert in Blighty

Well, Monday was a mixed bag of sh!te for me and my Vair. I was meant to be attending a car show that a friend was organising which would be a 200 mile round trip. The (uber early) morning start went well, she started up fine and the sat nag was hooked up and we were on our way. After a couple of mi...

Re: Mark your calendars - Wheeler Dealers Corvair Episode - 8/31

A most enjoyable episode with engine out action. I was hoping to learn from the pushrod exercise Ed did but I think I'll watch Dave's video instead!

Re: 65 Monza 110 PG Vert in Blighty

Thanks Doug and Dave. I'm certainly enjoying her. I have a friend vacationing in Illinois right now, he's gone over with an empty suitcase and is hopefully bringing me lots of spares back. I don't mind spending out on my Vair, it's just the postage and our money-grabbing HMRC that bumps up the bill ...

Re: 65 Monza 110 PG Vert in Blighty

Ok, update time... My superior speedo cable came through from Clarkes. I found out why it had gone wrong previously as I found the end of the old speedo cable snapped off in the hub... image.jpeg So, the new cable was fitted without much faff but it twirls around like a whirling dervish. So, time to...

Re: 65 Monza 110 PG Vert in Blighty

Hi all,

Not much to report. Have some spares ordered from Clarke's which am waiting to come through. In the meantime took her to a car show and managed to park next to another! Could this be the first time two Corvairs have appeared at the same UK car show? :tu:

Re: Cad-kid's 65 Monza - my first Corvair

Good job Jeremy! My seats need sorting out especially now that I have discovered that mine would have had red seats when new. I'm presuming that red seats means the door cards and carpet would have been red too, which is a bummer as that's all black in mine so will have to be changed too. Rome wasn'...

Re: 65 Monza 110 PG Vert in Blighty

Thanks Brad! Interesting to know my car would have had red vinyl seats and a white top. Both of which need replacing. It would be nice to put those items back to stock!
