I bought the Chevy purely as an investment but wanted the best for my set budget. I found Corry, after an 8 year search, in Glendale, California in 2019 and was fortunate to get it home 2 weeks before lockdown 2020. There is a long history, too much for here, but the sort version is t was found with a rotted out floor and had a new one fitted by Brad Hall in Canada. It then had 2 owners before being bought by Mark Linnet from Glendale in 2014. I purchased it after a long search of the car with the next door neighbour of Brad Hall, the first purchaser and the CORSA club of America. It was even recognised by Frisco Bay chapter of CORSA with a trophy, which Mark included with the sale.

This is one of 360 built in 1964 for release in 1965, registered 1st Jan 1965, it was possibly the first one on the road that year. The colour is a one year colour of Danube Blue and is very rare. This model is the only Canadian built Corsa 140 convertible in the UK. The interior is totally original as is the electrically operated hood. All the exterior panels are also original along with it’s original engine and gearbox.
