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.
From the website:

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.

After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible - pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.

Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option - just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.
While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall notice for a small number of General Motors fullsize vans due to possible rollaway concerns. On certain 2013 Chevrolet Express and 2013 GMC Savana models, it is possible to remove the key from the ignition without the shifter being in park.

Only 980 total units are being affected by this recall, and GM is fixing the issue by replacing the ignition cylinder and associated keys. Affected Chevy vans were built during most of November and December while its GMC counterpart was only built for a week in November. The recall goes into effect on January 23, and to find out if your vehicle applies to the recall, the GM and NHTSA contact numbers can be found on the official recall notice, which is posted below.
Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
