COOL RARE VEGA! 2.0L COSWORTH TWIN CAM 4 CYL, 4 SPEED MANUAL, FUN DRIVER!

In 1970, Chevrolet's John DeLorean set out to find a way to improve the performance of the Chevrolet Vega line. This search led them to the British company Cosworth Engineering who designed a special DOHC aluminum cylinder head for Chevrolet's inline-four. However, it would take another five years before these cars would hit the street. This 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth is one of the rare 2061 that were built in '75, and 1 of only 3500 that were built during the two-year production run of the Cosworth Vegas. If you are looking for a way to have a rare Chevy, then you need to take a closer look at this Vega.

Before you ask, yes that's the original color combination. All 2,061 '75 Cosworth Vegas left the factory covered in black acrylic lacquer with gold lettering, and my goodness does it look good on this compact coupe. As an older restoration, the paint has held up incredibly well, showing only minor imperfections, most of which could easily be remedied with a high-speed buff and wax. What little chrome this Vega Cosie has is in great shape too and the gold Cosworth Twin Cam lettering that graces the hood, length of the body, the wheel arches, and the rear cove panel really play well ...

COOL RARE VEGA! 2.0L COSWORTH TWIN CAM 4 CYL, 4 SPEED MANUAL, FUN DRIVER!

In 1970, Chevrolet's John DeLorean set out to find a way to improve the performance of the Chevrolet Vega line. This search led them to the British company Cosworth Engineering who designed a special DOHC aluminum cylinder head for Chevrolet's inline-four. However, it would take another five years before these cars would hit the street. This 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth is one of the rare 2061 that were built in '75, and 1 of only 3500 that were built during the two-year production run of the Cosworth Vegas. If you are looking for a way to have a rare Chevy, then you need to take a closer look at this Vega.

Before you ask, yes that's the original color combination. All 2,061 '75 Cosworth Vegas left the factory covered in black acrylic lacquer with gold lettering, and my goodness does it look good on this compact coupe. As an older restoration, the paint has held up incredibly well, showing only minor imperfections, most of which could easily be remedied with a high-speed buff and wax. What little chrome this Vega Cosie has is in great shape too and the gold Cosworth Twin Cam lettering that graces the hood, length of the body, the wheel arches, and the rear cove panel really play well contrasting against the paint, breaking things up just enough to really make this Vega pop out from the crowd. Sporty touches like the fender flares, moderate hood scoop, small chin spoiler up front, and the integrated ducktail spoiler out back, really distance this body style from grocery getter to serious performer. And with bright chrome bumpers fore and aft, and bright lenses covering the lights above them, you can tell that this Cosie has all the details right.

Inside, the performance theme continues. You'll instantly notice the perforated black vinyl seat trim that was standard on the Cosworth Vegas. There are Camaros from this time period that don't look this good. Also standard on every Cosworth Vega was the gold-colored, machine-turned dash bezel, and the gold-plated dash plaque with the build sequence number (in this case #1110). In front of the driver is a Cosworth Vega branded wheel (a very rare find indeed), and beyond the stock gauges include what appears to be the original standard issue 8,000 RPM gauge tachometer that is still in great shape. The black carpets are in very good condition, as are the black door panels at the flanks, and the taut headliner up above. Like most performance cars from the era, options are limited, although you do get a heater-defrost unit and an upgraded retro-style AM/FM/AUX stereo mounted in the center of the dash. The most important option of all is that tall shifter that splits the seats, topped with an original black knob that feels great in the hand as it manipulates the 4-speed manual below. This interior doesn't disappoint, but it's what's under the hood that will stop people in their tracks. Out back, the rear hatch lifts up and reveals plenty of storage space that's been neatly lined with black carpets to match the cabin.

Tilt the hood forward and you'll reveal a believed-original 2.0L Cosworth Vega, fuel injected Twin-Cam, inline-four with a die-cast aluminum alloy cylinder block. Attached to the block is the DOHC Cosworth 16-valve cylinder head, which makes this Vega sound and feel almost like an import tuner when you're cycling through the gears. The only liberties taken have been welcomed maintenance items that have left the engine bay looking stock, sans the gold headers that feed the throaty stainless exhaust system below. Factory-rated conservatively at 110hp, this engine was no slack, but if we're going by our own 'seat-Dyno', it certainly feels a lot more powerful than that rating would suggest. Car and Driver was able to push a Cosworth Vega from 0-60 in just 7.7 seconds, the fastest of that particular year, and we'd bet this little beauty would trump that number if we lined it up and set it off for battle. Front disc brakes provide great stopping power, and one quick look underneath shows off just how solid and super-clean this Vega really is. Bolted to the very peppy engine is a quick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission that sends power to the ground through 13-inch gold-alloy rims with Bowtie center caps that have been wrapped in grippy 175/70/13 blackwall rubber.

If you are looking for a rare gem of the 70's and want something different then this is how you will stand out from the crowd for sure. Trust us, it won't last long before someone snatches this up. Call today!!
