Reader Find: Cheap California Corvair


Reader WoodyMan writes:  Guys, I just sent you the 1961 Corvair being sold at auction in San Diego County for possible inclusion in your daily mail. I neglected to point out its in Northern San Diego County in the city of Poway. You can register on the website of CalAuctions and bid on the car (link here). It’s not happening until Sept 9 so there is time. I think the price is now at $530.00. Looks like a pretty original black plate (very important to us Cali folks :) car, stored inside. If someone in the BarnFinds community is dead set on bidding on it and wants boots on the ground I may be able to drive up there to see it. Its about 60 miles from me. Thanks for all you do! I really appreciate it. And thank you, WoodyMan for the great find! I think this car really merits saving–it looks largely original, the rust doesn’t look bad and even the dash looks nice under the dust. Hopefully the buyer respects the history of the car and does some sympathetic work to get it back on the road!
