This 1972 Chevrolet Vega is a nice reminder that these coupes are even better at accepting performance components than the Novas. With a powerful V8 and the right upgrades, this is a slick black speed machine.
The Vega coupes are really coming into their own on the classic car market. The front end and the Mag wheels resemble the early 2nd-gen Camaros. The black paint has the deep and glossy look of a good investment. And the silver stripe running over the top of this car is similar to what the fastest bow ties would get. It's a true classic American. But that sloping fastback rear with a hint of integrated tailfin has the same kind of appeal as a classic European sports coupe. So this one has style, and the Mighty Mouse graphics on the rear windows are a sign there's power here, too.
Inside, the seats, carpeting, and door panels are finished in a nice gray, and there are even comfy cloth inserts. It has the feeling of some nice investments, but that's not what will really have you excited. Instead, this one gets your performance heart tingling with the three-spoke sports steering wheel, AutoMeter Pro-Comp auxiliary gauges, and the shift light. That last one goes particularly nicely with the B&M shifter.
The factory Vega coupes didn't get V8 power, but the rear-wheel drive setup means they're ready for the upgrade. This 327 cubic-inch V8 has the right performance pieces like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. You even have great supporting components like an MSD ignition and a Milodon oil pan. And there's a wicked set of Hooker Competition headers that add even more power while contributing to the wicked rumble of the custom H-pipe dual exhaust. The three-speed transmission has a manual valve body, so you know this is made for performance. And there's even a four-link rear with sway bar and nice set of front disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a cool-looking coupe that's built for extra speed. It makes for a great package that's ready to hit the blacktop right now. Call today!!!
