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.

In remarkable condition! Surprisingly, it has A/C too...it has escaped the

problems were corrected by 1974 except the tendency to rust badly. The
direct competition would be the Ford Pinto.

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

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
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.
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.
1971 Chevy Vega Commercial - Worst Car Ever Made in the USA in Modern Times
The Chevy Vega was built to compete with the likes of VW, Toyota and Datsun
in the USA. It was Chevy's first Sub Compact Car. Although there is
always some debate. This car is considered by many as being one of or
actually, the Worst Car Ever Made. It's very subjective. It was heavily
recalled by GM for prolbems, the alluminium engines warped, the front cowl
sections rusted thru in a short period of time. The overall build quality
was very suspect. The Ford Pinto had some Safety issues or at least a bad
reputation earned rightly or wrongly with the placement of the Gas Tank
and the AMC Gremlin had detractors to it's styling but was reliable car,
but the Vega was real junk.
