1976 Chevy Vega Kammback
http://www.barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1975-chevy-vega-kammback Here's a rare treat! The 1975 Chevrolet Vega Kammback! Only 53,012 miles on this thing! It boasts a 70hp 2.3L in-line 4 cylinder and a 3 speed automatic transmission. It's a rear wheel drive car that is perfect for a V8 swap! It also has disc brakes, bucket seats, fold down rear seats, a roof rack, and a forward tilting hood. The car is very straight, starts and drives good, and gets great gas mileage!

1975 Chevy Cosworth Vega Blk Lakel090312
John DeLorean at work again! Cosworth helped design the twin cam head, and the block was slightly smaller (122 c.i.) than the stock block for Vega (140 c.i.). The car was made for the 1975 and 1976 model years. It was a first for electronic fuel injection for Chevy...and got good reviews for balanced performance. The car produced around 140 h.p. but a prototype produced 170 h.p. with twin carbs. The total production for two years was 3508. Probably the Achilles heel of the car was rust...Vegas were known for that!

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!
