$1000 looks like it's in decent shape. Pro's con's?
Already looked up V8 conversions
Only one I have right now.
Reminds me of the big bumper ugly camaro thou LOL.
You're killing me!
I've been trying to find one of those for years for a project with my kids! We love the thought of it being a mini version of Mom's 74 Z/28
We've got a wicked V-6 ready to go for a awesome daily driver.
The biggest obstacles are rust on those and the widow seals. Also around the battery tray in the engine bay.
A lot of the suspension components can be interchanged with late model S-10 for better handling and braking.
Rear suspension is a like a mini version of the 64-up A and G body 4-bar/coil spring set-ups.
The Vega's always reminded me of a miniature Camaro. I think the wagon version is pretty cool. Sorry I don't know too much about it though.
Love them, I think if done right they make fine street cars, or race cars for that matter. That one looks like a good start.
I've built 2 of em. A 76 with a 350 horse 350 and TH350 with the stock rear (can't count how many I broke but the guy at the yard used to set em aside for me) that was street legal and a death trap. Went like hell and stopped like, well, it didn't! Then I built a 73 with a 450 horse 327 and a th400 and a narrowed 12 bolt with 4.88's. That car SCREAMED! I still think about building a third from time to time.
I sold my rolled over Vega for $1000
It had a 12 point cage, 4 link and 9" w/Nodular center section, 4.56 Strange gears and 35 spline Spool. It had a Hooker V8 conversion kit. 14x32 M/T's DS/2 up front and Auto Drags all around.
Yea the more I think about it the more I say why haven't I gone and picked it up.
Says trans is slipping, but I have a 350 and a Th350 laying aorund... sounds like it's the perfect combo of I can drive it till I get the v8 itch again and then a weekend later V8 baby!!
do it ! v8 vegas are so cool !
