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.

132848 / 1971 Dodge Charger R/T
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7ll4lkx
If you're the kind of buyer who wants to actually enjoy the hobby with a
car you can drive and show off for years, this 1971 Charger R/T is, without
a doubt, one of the best deals on the planet!
Fresh out of a high quality $60K concours restoration began with a
rust-free original body that was stripped, sanded and massaged to better
than showroom condition. Once the panels were correctly aligned, and the
cars intimidating slab-sided ambiance was fully reconstructed, a correct,
retina searing coat of Chrysler code GY3 Curious Yellow paint was expertly
applied under a correct flat black rear spoiler and fresh Charger R/T
decals. The result is an ultra-straight, fully detailed pavement pounder
which elicits comments and stares every time it hits the road.
Lift the long, freshly finished hood and you'll find the cars original 440
cubic inch Magnum V8 which has been fully rebuilt and detailed for show. On
the passenger's side of the engine, a correct 2536430 casting number, which
confirms the block as a 1966-72 440 RB engine, sits between a February 11,
1970 date code, a day shift indicator and a 3 o'clock time symbol; and on
the bottom of the engine a correct partial VIN of 1A150580 is stamped just
in front of the cars bellhousing. Air flows through a correctly detailed
satin black dual snorkel air cleaner into a correct four barrel carburetor
which is bolted to a glossy Hemi Orange intake manifold. At the front of
that intake, a correct point distributor sends fire from a correct coil
into 7mm high temperature plug wires; and at the sides of that intake, Hemi
Orange valve covers hang above correctly restored Exhaust manifolds. Cooling is supplied by a
restored Chrysler radiator which utilizes correct hoses and clamps sends
water past fresh V-belts and rebuilt engine accessories. And power is
provided by a correct Mopar red top battery which sends spark through a
correct Mopar voltage regulator.
Behind this Charger's killer big block is a rebuilt A727 TorqueFlite
3-speed automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and powers down the
road with ease. As with the body of the car, 'clean' is the name of the
game down below with glossy Curious Yellow basecoat/clearcoat floors
displays not so much as a spec of road dirt or chip of bare metal. Up
front, a good looking factory suspension has been fitted with new bushings
and a rebuilt steering box; and out back, a familiar 8.75 Sure Grip rear
end utilizes steep 3.55 gears to throw the power to the pavement with
authority. At the center of the car, a fresh mandrel bent aluminized Exhaust system sends spent gases into an
H-pipe crossover and sturdy dual chamber mufflers. And at the corners of
the car, rebuilt drum brakes provide quick and reliable stops. All this
Mopar goodness rolls on a traditional set of great looking 15 inch Rallye
wheels which spin fresh 245/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/A white letter tires.
Sit down inside this great looking Charger and you'll find an all original
Houndstooth interior which is accented with tasteful wood and stainless
trim. The vintage seat covers, fresh carpets and tight headliner display no
signs of obvious wear and tear, and the door panels and full length console
feature fresh and well-preserved wood appliques. That like-new carpet is
protected by color-keyed floor mats, and that original console houses a
correct T-handle shifter for the cars A727 transmission. In front of the
driver, the cars original dash holds original gauges above a correct
factory heater, a modern Sony CD player and a rare, optional Rim Blow
steering wheel. And behind the cockpit, a clean and freshly painted trunk
is authentically detailed with a new vinyl mat, a full size spare tire and
a correct decklid decal.
Cars like this concours restored '71 Charger are what make this hobby fun.
It combines a slew of trophy winning ingredients with a price that is
substantially lower than most freshly completed muscle cars and enough fire
power to humble even modern performance cars. Call, click or visit

Chevy Vega engine Turbocharged
This is a schnieder cammed,ported Vega engine on 12 PSI Boost. It uses a Corvair Corsa turbo in a "draw through" design.
The rubber hose you see expanding and contracting is just a radiator hose
we used to fire it up. That is being replaced with hard tubing.
The nasty idle is the cam..I am going to have to run it at about 1000 rmp
Boost comes on at 1200rpm. Any

132405 / 1939 Ford Sedan
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7k4kmba
For NASCAR fans, David Pearson needs no introduction. He currently holds
second place on NASCAR's all-time win list, and is the driver that chased
Richard Petty to greatness. He was also among the inaugural class of
inductees to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, receiving votes from 50 of the 53
Speaking of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, this 1939 Ford tudor sedan is the very
car that Pearson drove to the induction ceremony from his home in
Spartanburg, South Carolina. Beginning his career in Fords, it is only
fitting that a Ford should carry him to the Hall of Fame, and this one does
it in style. A very mild custom, perhaps too conservative to even be called
a hot rod, it is nonetheless an extremely clean and well-restored example
built by one of the truly great drivers of our time.
The paint was expertly applied over beautifully prepped Henry Ford steel,
and has a deep, soft luster that looks highly authentic on the 72 year old
body. The color is probably a pretty good approximation of Garnet Maroon,
which was on the color palette for 1939 despite Henry Ford's objection to
red paints. All the original trim remains in place as well. The stainless
is brilliantly polished, and the chrome bumpers, like the paint, have a
nice patina that you just can't duplicate.
The engine is a correct 24-stud flathead V8 with aluminum heads and a
2-barrel Stromberg carburetor perched way up top. It has undoubtedly been
rebuilt, and probably sports a few hot-rodding tricks inside if you can
believe the Isky cam cards that accompany the car. The block has been
painted to match the body, although the heads are raw aluminum, and the
original front-mounted distributor remains in place. The original 3-speed
manual still lives behind the engine and shifts beautifully, driving the
original banjo-style rear end. All four corners now wear modern tubular
shocks, and there's a dual Exhaust
system tucked neatly up into the frame rails. It all rides on a set of
16-inch Ford steel artillery wheels wearing V8 hubcaps and trim rings,
along with a set of wide whitewall bias ply tires with tubes.
The warm, welcoming interior looks straight of pre-war America, complete
with simple fabrics, tasteful use of wood graining on the dash, and lovely
art deco gauge faces. All the Bakelite plastic knobs and handles remain in
excellent condition, and the banjo steering wheel is a work of art. A
rubber floor mat protects the carpets up front, fitted beautifully around
the shifter that extends gracefully up from the floor. The trunk is
surprisingly spacious given the car's fastback profile, and holds a
matching spare tire and wheel assembly.
If this were merely a nice 1939 Ford Deluxe tudor, I'd say that it's a rare
find in this condition. But adding in the David Pearson connection and the
fact that it is a very well-known car adds tremendously to its value. If
you're a '39 Ford fan, a NASCAR fan, or a David Pearson fan (or all
three!), you owe it to yourself to put this lovely tudor sedan in your
collection today. Call now!
132333 / 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/78zlna7
For many Camaro fans,
the pure lines of the '67-68 cars are as good as Camaros get, and I tend to agree.
This one has been finished properly, and the sheetmetal seems stretched
over the chassis, giving the car a lean, predatory look. Bodywork is nicely
done, and it looks as good as it does because someone too the time to sweat
the details. The paint might be a little dark to be Matador Red, but it's
handsome nonetheless, and perhaps the most interesting feature is the
color-keyed SS stripe up front. Almost ghost-like on the top of the grille,
it darkens to almost black by the time it reaches its point at the edge of
the doors, a very cool touch. The tail panel and lower valence have been
blacked-out to give the car a little bit of an edge, but it's far from
The subtlety stops the moment you lift the cowl induction hood, however.
Instead of a carbureted old-tech iron 350, you'll find a modern
all-aluminum LS1 that appears to be from a Camaro. Dressed up in bright red
Corvette Z06 coil covers and sporting an aluminum intake in place of the
factory plastic unit, it's making notably more power than any original 350
would, and does it reliably and smoothly thanks to the wonders of factory
fuel injection. Enough chrome was sprinkled throughout the engine bay to
make you realize this is no junkyard dog, and it's impressive as hell the
first time you open the hood at a show. Best of all, it starts instantly,
idles perfectly even when it's ice cold, and everything works like it would
in a brand new car—you just can't beat factory engineering for
That LS1 was originally paired with a 6-speed manual, so that's what lives
behind it now, a rugged T56 6-speed manual that features not one, but two
overdrive gears that make highway cruising, even with 4.10s in the 10-bolt,
a pleasant proposition. A massive dual Exhaust system with a crossover system delivers
that unique LS1 sound and fat sway bars keep it tight in the corners.
Instead of oversized and flashy alloys, the builder went with
tried-and-true Rallys wearing brand new 15-inch BFGoodrich Radial T/As that
are always in style.
Inside, well, you can forget all pretext of pretending this is a stock Camaro. Deeply bolstered
buckets are provided for the front passengers, and they've been upholstered
in black velour instead of slippery leather for obvious reasons. The back
seat has been upholstered to match, adding a bright red Chevrolet bowtie
emblem to the seatback. Auto Meter Ultralight gauges fill the original
instrument pods, and it appears that this is an original factory air car,
as there are correct eyeball vents in the dash. The steering wheel is a
gorgeous billet piece from American Racing, and the center console has been
modified to hold a quartet of auxiliary gauges in a fitting tribute to the
original. You'll also note that the Optima battery has been relocated to
the trunk, where you'll also find a full-sized spare and a fresh mat.
Documentation includes an original owner's manual and 1968 Camaro brochure.
The subtlety of the exterior work, especially that SS stripe, will win this
car a lot of fans at shows, while the power under the hood and killer
interior make it an absolute blast to drive. Fully sorted and with
everything fully functional, it's exactly the kind of car that gets a lot
of second and third looks at a show, and drivers of much more modern
machinery will be stunned when you swat them with this 43-year-old coupe.
Fast, cool, and functional, this car has everything going for it. Call
132502 / 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/8374j5g
This 1969 Hurst/Olds tribute is an extremely well done car that features a
correct 455 and is priced at about a third of what it would take to build
something like this from the ground up.
A 2007 nut and bolt rotisserie restoration started with a 1969 Oldsmobile
Cutlass and, using correct colors and details, professionally transformed
it into the fine tribute you see here. The straight and clean body was
covered with a basecoat/clearcoat finish that includes correct Cameo White
under correct Firefrost Gold stripes that have been professionally trimmed
in black, just as the original Hurst/Olds were. Up front, grilles borrowed
from the 442 have been completely blacked out just as they were on original
'69 Hurst/Olds. In the middle of those grilles a Firefrost gold stripe with
its surrounding black accents starts where the bumper meets the center of
the nose and runs to the top center of the cars correct 'mail box' hood
scoop which includes correct "H/O 455" decals. The cars sporty profile is
emphasized by correct Hurts/Olds emblems, correct Hurst/Olds rear quarter
decals, correct English racing mirrors and correct Firefrost Gold stripes.
At the rear of the car, dual Hurst/Olds trunk emblems sit below a tall
decklid spoiler that is correctly trimmed at each end with Firefrost Gold
and black pin stripes.
The engine is a correct code 396021F 455 Oldsmobile Rocket block that
sounds meaner than most of the cars in our RK Motors showroom. Turn the key
and a Demon carburetor sucks air through a new correctly decaled chrome air
cleaner and feeds fuel from stainless lines into to an Edelbrock Performer
Oldsmobile 455 aluminum intake. Behind the Demon carburetor, an HEI
distributor feeds fire through Taylor wires which are loomed around
pristine chrome valve covers. Below those valve covers, ceramic coated long
tube headers send Exhaust out through
a true dual Exhaust system. Someone
paid close attention to the details during this cars restoration as the
Cameo White body panels mesh seamlessly with the satin black engine bay and
contrast well to the orange engine block and silver accessories.
The bottom of the car has been over restored to include glossy and spotless
Cameo white on the floor board that contrasts brilliantly with a satin
black frame and drive line that are in excellent shape. A 12 bolt limited
slip rear end and sits behind a correct double A-arm front suspension and
is held in place by a triangulated four link rear suspension. Braking is
provided by correct power drums all around and turning is aided by factory
correct power steering. A turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed transmission sends
power to the rear wheels while Exhaust
flows out of the long tube ceramic headers into a true dual system complete
with a crossover and Flowmaster mufflers. At each corner of the car, 14
inch Oldsmobile stamped style 2 wheels are painted in Firefrost Gold,
trimmed in chrome and feature chrome trim rings, chrome lug nuts and chrome
center caps with red Oldsmobile rocket logos. Wrapped around those SS2
wheels is reliable 225/70/14 BF Goodrich radials.
Inside the car, new vinyl seats sit on new sound deadening insulation and
new carpet that is protected by new mats. Front and rear door panels
feature the same pattern as the seats and are decorated with great looking
chrome and stainless trim pieces. A factory correct short console features
wood grain applique and houses a dual gate chrome Hurst shifter for the
cars TH350. The dash pad shows no signs of sun damage, housing the cars
gauge cluster and chrome vents for the heat and air conditioning. The lower
dash is trimmed in stainless and houses a correct Oldsmobile AM radio with
a courtesy light above the knobs and controls for the heat and air
conditioning. On the passenger's side of the dash you'll find a correct
Hurst/Olds logo attached to the locking glove box and in front of the
driver, a four spoke satin finished steering wheel features a red
Oldsmobile rocket logo.
This 1969 Hurst/Olds tribute is a phenomenal car that could not be
reproduced for three times the asking price.
