1975 Chevrolet Cosworth Vega F/S Hershey SOLD!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 The arthritis in my knees has taken all of the fun of this car away from me, so it's that time. I have owned this car for 7 years and bought the car from the original owner. It was sitting in storage prior to that from 1985. I have the original bill of sale and build sheet. This is car 0718 out of the 3508 of total production in 1975 and 76., with a few hundred known to be left that are running according to the Cosworth registry.The car has 79,000 miles and runs GREAT!  In 1975 the Cosworth sold for on $500 less than the Corvette and $800 more than a Camaro. This car is a great fun to drive, and rivals the feel of driving a British sports car of the same era. I had come upon the rare aftermarket Hutton Weber Carburetor set-up, and replaced the original problematic Electronic Fuel Injection set-up, I do have all of the original fuel injection parts and they will go with the car. Some of the paint is still original in areas but it has been touched up. Since I have owned it I had the original rims restored, 5 new tires, new exhaust from the original factory stainless steel header back, new tie rod ends and center link, new fuel pump, new Delco clutch, new clutch cable, the close ratio 4 speed transmission was overhauled with new bearings and syncro rings,  new U joints were installed. original starter was rebuilt, new brakes, radio speaker was rebuilt, new hoses and radiator was boiled out. new Steele weatherstrip on the hatch and the doors, had a new headliner installed, and I am sure there were many other items I had forgotten. Car is very fast! Car is registered to me and is located on Long island New York. It turns heads everywhere we take it! I know that these two words were seldom mentioned in the same sentence 'solid' and ' Vega' but it is....  a solid vega.  I feel it is priced to sell asking $9,800 OBO for a car you start and drive anywhere tomorrow. LETS TALK, IT HURTS ME TO SELL IT BUT HURTS ME EVEN MORE TO GET IN AND OUT OF IT!  Cosworths are supported by a great national club of extremely knowledgeable fellow Cosworth enthusiasts. I must have well over 150 magazines from the COVA loaded with GREAT  tech articles, like it should be!   If you are interested please PM me for more information. I will have some more photos posted on the undercarriage in the next day or so  more history on Cosworth Vegas please go to http://chevyvega.wikia.com/wiki/Chevrolet_Cosworth_Vega Car will be there from Tuesday to Friday..

Thanks for looking and feel free to contact me for more information (516) 840-3653 9 to 9 EST leave a message

I remember a guy who bought one brand new in 75..He loved it although it did have a few quality control issues that had to be cleared up. I always liked them but like you today I would have to be pried out if I got in it.Good luck on selling it for a good price.

Thanks,

It is a shame I just can't enjoy the car anymore, time to go!

I loaded in the trailer on Saturday, so we shall see. I have the original Bill of sale and all of the paperwork as well, plus the original fuel injection. I am negotiable TO A POINT.....  AND TO THE RIGHT PERSON,

 See you there I am leaving here around lunch to avoid dodging the deer in I-78 driving in the morning

Great car!  I remember seeing them in the dealer showroom when it was new.  I recall black was the only color choice in ‘75.
