<VV> AC Corsa

In general, I would agree with "possibly somewhat fewer".  However, 
replacement engines were often the "universal replacement" types.  Certain 
parts needed to be transferred from the old engine or obtained separately to 
fit specific applications.  I don't know that all replacement engines were 
done that way.  It seems unlikely there was a replacement engine that was 
specific to a Corsa with AC.

Dave and I wonder if a few of those engines could have been spares, in case 
one was need as a replacement. So, the most-conservative way to look at it 
is: no more than 153 were made -- possibly somewhat fewer.

I own one of the Willow Run factory AC Corsas. I did start a registry years 
ago but had no info coming in after one or two commented. Yes it is believed 
there were 153 produced because that's how many engines unique to Corsas 
with AC were produced. Dave Newell was the person who researched the 
Tonawanda engine plant information to come up with the number.

Thanks for the info. I believe I did the search correctly, and found no air 
conditioned Corsa listed. I know they were produced. Does anyone have any 
info about them? I would be interested in how many were produced, and how 
many are thought to have survived. Thanks for your help.

It is believed that 153 were built, including WRN and LOS production. I 
would guesstimate there are at least 50 still around. I have an AB LOS 
Coupe. I tell people, if they ask, that it is probably one of 30 coupes made 
in LA.
They are rare enough that each one is probably very close to the only 
example  made in that combination at that plant.
