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.
From the website:

#2 & 3--------------------------Trim-01=500
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.

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."

Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
Follow the link to see all the winners and read about why they were chosen.
General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.

GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.
The last time General Motors had a diesel passenger car in the US, it was the 1.8-liter 1986 Chevette. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show today, GM is unveiling the much-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. The compact bows with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that boasts 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with full twist coming on at just 2,000 rpm. What's more, the common-rail, direct-injection diesel features an overboost function that allows the engine to deliver up to 280 lb-ft of torque for 10 seconds at a time. Even with 10 more horsepower and 110 more pound-feet of torque than the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Cruze, the 2.0-liter diesel engine can return up to 42 mpg (highway) bolted to its six-speed automatic transmission.
If you're counting, that figure meets the less powerful Cruze Eco with a six-speed manual transmission. More importantly, the auto transmission Cruze Diesel matches its main competition, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, in highway fuel economy. The Cruze 2.0 TD (as it will be badged) can also handle up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20), whereas the Jetta is rated only for B5. General Motors has not released city fuel economy for its newest diesel, but we do know how much it will cost you to jump behind the driver's seat.
GM will kindly ask for $25,695, plus an $810 destination fee. That marks a $2,115 premium over a loaded Cruze LTZ Auto and $2,640 more than the Jetta TDI, though the MSRP will net you a leather interior, 17-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Performance Package, as well as a two-year maintenance plan and five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the gas-powered Cruze, you also lose a couple cubic feet of rear cargo space thanks to a 17-liter diesel emission fluid tank. That urea fluid, which helps put the clean in clean diesel, will need to be refilled at least every 10,000 miles.
