I posted a few pictures of the car, the interior, and engine bay. 
Pictures of the outside are old, but represent the car.

Pictures can be found here: https://imgur.com/gallery/6yZhT

The price of the car is in the body of the advertisement (below). This 
car also has the high output heater fan motor with the proper relay 

Best regards,

> 1968 Corvair 140 4 speed Convertible for Sale; Repainted with factory
> Evening Orchid
> Bought to become a daily driver 13 years ago. Plan was to finish it with
> rebuilt suspension/steering/brakes, but life (family, then cancer) got
> in the way.
> Originally built by John Polacchi (Manton, California) with a slight
> custom applied (gas filler in trunk, door latches from 49 Lincoln, some
> removal of trim). I picked it up from a third party near Santa Barbara
> California with a "fresh" locally built engine, and new convertible top.
> A good 25 foot car. Always garaged. Have some of the history of the car
> from the original owner.
> Car devoured the OT10 cam shortly after I purchased it in 2004, which
> abruptly changed my plans. Sat in my garage for a number of years, then
> underwent rebuild of engine (with some advice from the late Ed Corson):
>   - 10/10 nitrided crank, 040 Forged pistons, recon rods with Arp bolts,
> h/p oil pump, deep seat heads (Fumio Fukaya), new valve train, including
> NOS factory 304 cam, balanced, real Dale distributor with Pertronix,
> SafeGuard knock control system, deflashed, all oil passages deburred and
> cleaned up (case halves, rear housing, crankshaft, ...), rebuilt
> carburetors, high output alternator, new plug wires, mounts and
> bushings. Probably more stuff than I remember at this point. Never got
> this engine completely sorted out.
> New fuel tank, including all hoses and sender, and external front mount
> electric fuel pump with inertia sensor and fuel pump controller (by
> David Heath). Rebuilt pressure plate (Larry Claypool), real Dale bolted
> flywheel, American aluminum 16" wheels with tires that no doubt will
> need to be replaced. Factory adjustable column (pre-1968 version) with
> decent wood steering wheel. 3.27 open differential, with Saginaw
> transmission. Corsa dash (working clock and factory CHT), with Autometer
> gauges below center console, plus dual CHT (still in box). The
> non-factory interior is nothing to write home about. Top was new in 2004.
> This is a complete car that ran and had proper registration/inspection
> when I stopped driving it in 2013. This is not a barn find.
> Engine/transaxle needs to be sorted then onto suspension, brakes,
> steering and finally the interior. Most parts listed as new were
> purchased and installed prior to 2010. The car has not been driven more
> than a few thousand miles (or less) since then.
> *$5000 *(a small fraction of what I have in it); includes all parts that I
> have acquired and a correct CoverCraft Corvair car cover.
> Second time I have sold everything and "left" the Corvair family (sold
> everything I had in 1991 to Chris Langley). Car has always been garaged
> in Arlington, Texas. I will find a picture or two and post them.
> I need the space to park my new 435i convertible.
> Someone needs to be driving this car when it turns 50.
