The car is an older restoration. The body is in pretty good shape with no visible rust. The interior is all there, but rough. There are stains and rips in the seats. The convertible is a manual and operates correctly. There are no tears in the convertible top. This car is not a show car. It is not perfect. It is a cool little car that with a little work could be very nice.
For all you Corvair enthusiasts. Corsa's are more rare and valuable than Monza's. THIS IS A CORSA! Check out this website and it will tell you how to see the difference.
Yes, the dash has been changed because the previous owner wanted the gear shift on the dash. This is why it doesn't have the Corsa dash. Yes, some things have been changed to make it what the owner wanted. It doesn't change the fact that it is still a Corsa. Check out the VIN numbers posted and you will see that it is a Corsa.

The first three numbers on this car is 107. The VIN is 107675W211188. This car is a Corsa. Yes, it has some Monza parts on it. The drivetrain is not original to the car, and the dash is not original. I have no idea how many miles are on the car, or drivetrain. If you want an all original, numbers matching show car, this is not for you. If you want a classic, cool looking car that you can tinker with while you drive it, this car is for you. Remember, this car is 48 years old, and wont drive like a new car, but it's a classic.
No, I probably wouldn't fly in and drive the car to California. It's a 48 year old car, that hasn't seen every day use for years. I would recommend driving it for awhile before you start driving it across the country. I feel that way about any older car that is not known to you, not just this particular car.

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."

Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
It's been a little over a year and a half since General Motors first confirmed plans to offer a diesel-powered Chevrolet Cruze here in the United States, and we've now learned that the oil-burning compact will debut under the lights of the Chicago Auto Show in February. According to GM Authority, the Cruze Eco-D will be introduced as part of the entire 2014 model year Cruze range, set to go on sale in the second quarter of this year.

Earlier reports have indicated that the diesel Cruze will be able to achieve fuel economy numbers in the range of 50 miles per gallon. For comparison, the similarly sized Volkswagen Jetta TDI is rated at 30/42 mpg city/highway, but as we found out in our long-term test of the 2011 model, hitting 50 mpg was a piece of cake.
Official specifications will be released at the time of the 2014 Cruze's unveiling, though reports have stated that the sedan will be powered by a reworked version of the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-four found in the Holden Cruze CDX overseas. In that application, the four-pot oil-burner produces 160 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque - increases of 20 hp and 29 lb-ft over the 2.0-liter engine used in VW's Jetta TDI.
General Motors has announced a large investment in its Spring Hill, Tennessee facility. The former home of Saturn production will be getting a $167 million addition to a previously announced $183 million, to cover a pair of new midsize vehicles. The investment is expected to create 1,800 jobs at the factory.
That $350 million is being divvied up for a pair of programs at Spring Hill. The first will take the bulk of the money ($223 million) and create 1,000 of the 1,800 jobs, while the other will take the remaining $127 million and generate the leftover 800 positions. But GM says the investment will cover "midsize vehicle programs." So what could they be?
The leading candidate in our minds is a new crossover for Buick, called the Anthem, that will slot between the Encore and Enclave, but will be slightly smaller than the Equinox and Terrain. As we've explained, the new model will likely be the first product to sport GM's new D2UX platform, which will eventually replace both the Delta and Theta platforms. Spring Hill is already building the Equinox, so there could be some credence to this theory.
