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.

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 idle.
Boost comes on at 1200rpm. Any questions,just email me.
I have been keeping Vega engines in vegas for years.

132656 / 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6qbptp4
This killer 1965 Malibu pro tourer mixes classic good looks with serious modern performance hardware to put a 21st century spin on a traditional crowd favorite.
During a complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration, this Chevelle was entirely disassembled and striped of its original dull Ermine White paint. The body of the car was solid and presented itself as an excellent foundation for a slick first rate paint job with the exception of its massive flat quarter panels, which are typically a problem area with these Chevelles. After two new high quality quarters were installed, the rest of the body panels were bolted back to the chassis and perfectly straightened so that the entire car could be layered in a dynamic coat of rare Woodland Green Hummer paint. The result is a fantastic looking hot rod that oozes cool even when it's sitting still.
Lift the hood of this car and you'll find a much less subtle modification in the form of a 5.3 liter (327 cubic inch) LS1 V8 that gives this Malibu plenty of performance to back up its tough looks. The first of GMs world renowned LS motors, this modern aluminum powerplant utilizes aftermarket Howell electronic fuel injection, coil near plug firing and flat top pistons to create 300 horsepower and roughly 350 ft./lb. of torque. In front of the silver motor, a custom fabricated and powder coated air intake houses a Spectre reusable air filter and reaches to the very front of the car to pipe clean and cool air into the cars composite intake. At the sides of the block, ceramic coated Hooker Super Competition headers send Exhaust into a true dual system that's equipped with an H-pipe, mean sounding Flowmaster 50 series mufflers and side mounted stainless tips. At the front of the car a custom fabricated aluminum radiator sits beneath a satin finished radiator support in front of new Goodyear hoses and belts and two programmable Dakota Digital electric fans.
Underneath the car, power flows from a modern B&M Super Cooler equipped 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission, that was originally bolted under a fourth generation Camaro through a new driveshaft that's secured by a bolt-on driveshaft hoop to a completely rebuilt GM 10 bolt rear end. Housed within that original rear end is an Auburn Posi-traction unit with pavement pounding 3.73 gears that have no problem pinning the car's occupants to their seats. Holding that performance drivetrain off the ground is a complete Hotchkis performance suspension with an adjustable rear pinion angle, KYB performance shocks, power steering and four wheel power disc brakes. At the corners of the car, a set of spectacular looking 17 inch Foose Nitrous wheels throw the power to the ground through 225/50 front and 255/50 rear Nitto Extreme Performance radials.
Like the exterior, the car's interior is a masterful blend of old and new that features the comfort and convenience of modern technology wrapped in classic Chevrolet design. The 12-way power adjustable driver's seat, front passenger's seat and rear bench seat were all taken from a 2000 Camaro and, along with the traditional '65 Chevelle door panels recovered in Sierra Leathermate Snow White upholstery. Below the seats, new black carpet rides on thick Dynamat insulation and is protected by black carpeted floor mats. In front of the driver, a great looking black and chrome '65 Chevelle dash looks perfectly natural holding cool new Classic Industries gauges above controls for the cars Hot Rod air conditioning and controls for the direct fit Ken Harrison AM/FM radio with MP3 compatibility. That direct fit radio sends sound to both kick panel mounted Infinity Kappa speakers and a rear Rockford Fosgate amplifier and subwoofer that are cleverly hidden below the car's rear package shelf. Connecting the driver to the road is a modern black Chevrolet steering wheel that sits on an Ididit steering column, features a red bowtie horn button and perfectly matches the dash pad. Security is enhanced by a keyless entry system that is complete with a vehicle alarm and door mounted Electra Life power windows.
With its classic good looks, modern performance hardware and outstanding build quality, this 1965 Chevelle Malibu is an absolute blast to drive and is instantly admired wherever it goes.
