I thought I would enter my 66 Corsa convertible again, it's been awhile since I last entered it. She's a 1966 Corsa 140 hp 4 spd convertible with factory air, a very rare vair at that. I bought her in Dec of 2010 here in Phoenix, Az where she was originally purchased 50 years ago by her 1st owner. At that time she was white with a maroon interior and a black top. Her second owner acquired her in 1972 and sometime during his possession he changed the color to maroon. Well as the years passed the Az. sun had taken it's toll on the old girl. The paint got heavily oxidized, the top started to come apart and the interior was breaking down. I've always had an interest in theses cars an when the opportunity came for me to get one I jumped at it. It had taken me awhile to talk the last owner into selling it to me even though it sat in his garage for 5 years untouched and sort of forgotten. For the next 5 years it was a labor of love transforming this diamond in the rough into what she is today. She has an Aztec bronze exterior with a new Clark's white top, and a fawn and white interior (carpet and seat covers also from Clark's ) the car is virtually brand new from bumper to bumper with the exception of the motor . After I got it running it seemed to run fine no smoke and no noises, so I just cleaned it up and resealed it. Since then, she has won awards at several car shows and draws all kinds of attention. I just love driving her and hope to keep her for a long time.

As much as I love me some LM coupes, I had to go with that fine FC.

Thanks Rondo!

For more than obvious reasons, I sincerely dig your 66 convertible! :tu:
