Richard you might check at dollar general..........Cosworth vegas were made only two years 75-76..All 2062 1975 models were black and the 1446 1976 ones were offered in other colors! These were the first passanger cars to use EFI best I remember.They had some really good hi per parts and run very well able to turn high RPMs. They are very affordable today but when new just a few dollars less than a vette..

Thanks but the wagon is to small for hauling much of anything other than"butt" It has a 4 cylinder with 390 cfm holley and a header hooked up to a opel 4 speed and a shifter that felt like a stick in a 5 gal bucket of mud when shifting it! The turbo vega would run circles around the Yenko! I still like my bikes better than a vega!

High performance muscle cars did go down due to the gas shortage..I remember 427 vette could be bought around 2500.00 in the mid 70s..they sure haven't come down lately .The 60-70s muscle cars just don't appeal to the younger crowd anymore and the older folks have the memories and the money! Don't forget our muscle cars and parts are being sold and shipped out of the US to a world market. I'd love to buy another 69 Z/28 for 1050.00 bucks!That is 1979 prices! The first gen camaro is just so popular and has been for a very long time you'll never see them affordable again IMHO......They have become more of an investment car.

 I agree with Sauron327 and suggest not using any sand paper wet or dry. A clay bar will clean the surface very well but you'll need a good hand polishing after that. Remember paint back then wasn't trash or imperfection free so beware before you see the primer..Good luck!

It's was a Gold Spinner winner in 06...so not your average 72 Vega! BTW in 05 I was offered a 69 x 33 and 72 BB Cheyenne short bed loaded with 45k actual miles...both restored for my 1 of a kind Vega!  Guess you could say I really did and still do like the Vega. Thanks guys for the kind words!

If you look closer you'll see the rad support has the ac cond mounting rubbers still there plus holes in the top were the seal goes.It started out with a sb auto on column and ac. Terry Pennigton who's involved with FAST class racing cloned the car back in 90s.It was sold to Don Werner who had Terry build to spec a racecar with a ZL1 engine,special 400 turbo and several other racing goodies! Don went racing 5 times and quit. I traded him a 1972 Vega for it. Then I sold the engine,trans,rear ect parts and put back the 69 512 with a 69 M22 and Moser rear.It has no heater or radio but with the comp ZL-1 cam I've got the best music ever! Get's around 10 mpg unless you open up the 800 holley.....The best thing is most people think it's a real Yenko but I tell them it's more fun to own and I saved 250k.....

 No this is not Kevin's old gold car....it was sold in Jan 2011 at Russo & Steele. This car was running in F A S T class when I traded for it in '09. It's a black plate car with all original sheetmetal.Only 4 of the gold Yenkos exist far as I know..2 with white stripes 2 with black.Kevin had one of each. I love the olympic gold and it's the original color too! Thanks
