Dick Edwards, '65 V8 Corsa - Alberta Canada
I just purchased my 1965 Corsa from a fellow who has owned it since 1987. He had purchased a Crown conversion kit back then and had full intensions of doing the complete conversion but Parkinson's took hold of his body and in October of 2016 he decided that he couldn't finish it. I was lucky enough to be the next owner. All the body work was done and painted. Only thing is to install the power train and wiring. My plan is to install a 2003 - 5.3 litre, fuel injected engine this winter and to finish it with a ride in it this coming summer.
October, 2017 Update
I have taken it to 4 Show & Shines this summer. Everyone says the same thing WOW a V-8 in a Corvair. Although it is a little cooler in Canada I have not had an issue with overheating with the engine or the interior. I have a 4 core rad with 2 electric fans and a electric water pump and the engine compartment is fully insulated.
