1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth
1975 Vega Cosworth
ONE OWNER. Very Rare Only 3,508 Vega Cosworth’s were made in 1975 & 1976. This one even more rare as it has the original build sheet, the original window sticker, the original owners manual, original Title and tons of other documentation. Plus One Owner and only 45,415 original miles. When the compact Chevrolet Vega was launched in 1971, Chevrolet General Manager John Z DeLorean directed his staff to develop a high-performance variant, much as he had created the Pontiac GTO out of the Le Mans in 1964. The result was outstanding. Kind of like a Yenko something. Heavy duty front and rear suspension. Overall mechanically the car is excellent. Runs and drives very well.
