There were, specifically, 153 RR code engines in '66 for the Corsa 'verts.
This however does not include Corsa Coupes, or Monza's with 140s and A/C.
As for that 153 number, there may not have been that many total '66 Corsa
'verts with A/C, some of the engines could have been made as replacements,
extras, overruns, whatever.

There was a special "high" compressor mount for 140s starting in '66,
along with the condenser that mounts over the air inlet.  There were a
very small number of '66 Corsa converts made with A/C (~150 - 200).

I'm sure you could find more info about this in the Corvair Decade, or
perhaps the new Air Conditioning book.
