This 1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa is finished in maroon over a black interior and powered by a turbocharged 2.7-liter flat-six paired with a 4-speed manual transmission The car was likely built as a standard Corvair and fitted with its current turbocharged engine at a later date according to the selling dealer, who notes the presence of a factory-style turbocharger, airbox, exhaust, rear bumper, and valance This turbocharged Corvair is offered in Montana with a clean California title The car was originally finished in black (A) according to the body tag pictured below, though it has since been repainted in a hue similar to factory Madeira Maroon The seller notes that the body tag does not show that the installed Turbo rear bumper, valance, and exhaust were fitted by the factory The car is equipped with factory Corsa and Corvair badging, and Turbo badges have been added 15? Torq Thrust wheels are fitted with modern radial tires. Close-up photos of the black convertible top and plastic rear window are included in the gallery below A matching cover is provided for use when the top is stowed The interior is finished in black vinyl upholstery with matching carpets and retains a factory steering wheel, radio, and instrumentation Approximately 78k miles are shown on the 5-digit odometer A split is visible on the outer edge of the passenger seat The rear-mounted 2.7-liter flat-six is equipped with a single turbocharger and carburetor, and is believed by the selling dealer to have been installed under previous ownership Shifting is through a 4-speed manual transmission Per the seller clutch appears to be worn and needs to be depressed fully when shifting Fully independent rear suspension was new for 1965, and derived from that used in the C2 Corvette Additional photos of the underside are provided in the gallery below
