77 vega 350 v8 for sale fast and furious
1977 chevy vega .
Solid southern car from Tennessee, I have the Tennessee title!! Its been kept in a garage never driven since its in ny and .never seen snow or salt.!virtualy rust free it has a 1970s 350 v8 and turbo 350 trans that was installed in Tennessee, runs good and drives!! It has new wheels and tires.I bought it from a guy here on LI who had bought it on eBay and had it shipped from Tennessee he never registered it.He had plans of restoring it with his son but never had the time. I bought it from him,drove it home put it in the garage where it has sat for 2 years.My plan for the car was to make it into a dragster! You never see one of these on the road but if ya go to the track there all over the place!Vegas are very light you can fit any motor in them an abundance of hi- performance parts are still available (fiberglass hoods,motor mounts,frontend parts,v8 springs,rollcage rearend parts oil pan,headers.ect.ect) through jegs or any online parts house. If you google chevy vega youll see,also search youtube for hundreds of videos of vegas in action!!thats what I did and I was hooked!! But Im sorry to say I have gotten sidetracked by many other projects (a Honda) and need to pass this one on to someone that will give the car the tlc it needs.
Being from Tennesse the car seems to have been worked on by a hillbilly,To drive it the way it is it will need some finishing.(proper motor mounts,v8 springs,and an electric fan)The car has some cosmetic issues a few dings,a small dent behind the rear fender well and some small dents in the hood probably caused by a broken motor mount..
The car seems to have been re painted sometime during its lifetime it mostly looks good but in some spots
the paint appears to have peeled and hillbilly painted over the areas with spray paintspray paint is also evident in the interior with some overspray on the windows.But overall not that bad,nothing that cant be fixed!!

132702 / 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7ls72l8
This all original 1975 Cosworth is one of 2,061 cars produced for the '75 model year, has only 291 actual miles, and has all of the rare and difficult to find Cosworth Vega parts right where the factory installed them.
Assembled at GMs historic Lordstown, Ohio manufacturing facility, and finished in standard issue 1975 Cosworth Vega code 19 black acrylic lacquer, CV number 1094 is every bit as clean today as when it left the showroom floor. The car has remained in all original, non-repaired condition thanks in small part to GMs anti-rust improvements, and in large part to immaculate maintenance and care given by loving owners throughout its life. Today, it features an old school factory appeal that you just can't find in its restored peers.
With 110 horsepower and a 6,500 RPM redline, the Cosworth Vega was one of the hottest performing cars available in 1975 and featured a hand-built mill from GM's Tonawanda engine plant that was individually signed by its builder on a sticker that occupies the cam cover. Measuring in at 122 cubic inches, and wearing a correct partial VIN of 40392, this Vegas DOHC inline-four features sturdy forged aluminum pistons, a heat-treated forged steel crankshaft and forged connecting rods that both reveal the engines racing ancestry and assure high performance durability. To meet ever increasing US emissions standards, a custom designed stainless steel Exhaust header and Bendix electronic fuel injection with pulse-time manifold injection, four injector valves, an electronic control unit (ECU), five independent sensors and two fuel pumps were installed. Thanks to this revolutionary engine, the Vega was the first Chevrolet car to feature electronic fuel injection which warranted an HEI distributor for increased spark and a heavy duty radiator for increased cooling.
At the bottom of this sophisticated Chevrolet, an original Saginaw 4-speed manual transmission, which wears a correct 338835 casting number and a correct 15U240392 partial VIN, sends power to an original 10 bolt rear end that's packed full of stout 3.73 gears. Holding that sports car drivetrain off the ground is an original F41 heavy duty suspension which includes a 'torque arm' rear end for optimum rear axle power control, larger rear stabilizer bars, Vega GT springs and shocks, provisions for the Vega's "fast Steer" option and front disc brakes. At the center of the car, an original single pipe Exhaust system snakes spent gases along the floorpan to a factory replacement muffler which barks an exotic four cylinder growl through two polished stainless tips. And at the corners of the car, 13 inch British-made, gold-painted cast aluminum wheels spin correct BR70-13 Goodyear Custom Steelgard Radials around chrome lug nuts and satin finished Chevrolet center caps.
Take a look inside this pristine Cosworth Vega and you'll find the typical all business/no compromises black interior that these cars have built a reputation for. The custom bucket seats, which are completely fresh and display no signs of wear at all, nicely complement a 100% straight and crack-free dash. Inside that dash, an engine-turned gold bezel houses a Cosworth exclusive 8,000 RPM tachometer between a 120 MPH speedometer, gauges for the engines vitals and a gold-plated plaque which is branded with the cars 1094 build sequence number. Below those gauges, a correct radio delete sits next to the cars original heater/defroster; and in front of those gauges, a familiar black steering wheel is centered behind a blue Cosworth Vega horn button emblem. At the floor, the booted shifter for the Borg Warner T10 transmission springs up from like-new black carpet which is protected by color-keyed floor mats. And at the roof, the cars original mouse fur headliner stretches tightly around vinyl sun visors and a bright courtesy lamp. The door panels, which look as good as new, are decorated with attractive stainless trim and chrome handles for both the doors and windows. And the hatch, which is lined with the same black carpet as the floor boards, appears to have never been used.
If you're a serious collector who's been searching for something rare and unique, here's your opportunity to own one of the nicest and most underappreciated cars on the planet! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome car!
