Lot Number:
Estimate: £7,000 - 9,000
  • V5 Present
  • MoT Exempt
  • Chassis number: 107675W294647
The Corvair ‑ one of Chevrolet's attempts to battle the wave of European small car imports reaching the USA during the 1960s ‑ remains the only American‑designed, mass‑produced car with a rear‑mounted, air‑cooled engine; an accolade that is probably unlikely to be taken away now.

This 1965 example, which was brought to the UK and registered here in April 2019, is a top‑of‑the‑range Corsa model with 2.7‑litre flat‑six engine with four‑barrel carburettor. It's a matching numbers cars that the vendor tells us has been little used since its import, registration and MoT in 2019. When not being driven, it has been dry‑stored. "All is working fine," according to the vendor, and this includes the hood motor. The odometer shows 60,331 miles ‑ albeit unwarranted ‑ and the last MoT expired in March 2020 ‑ although as an historic vehicle, one is no longer needed.
