For Sale: 1976 Chevrolet Vega in MANISTEE, Michigan

Vehicle Description

This 1976 Chevrolet Cosworth Vega is a refurbished example that is #2315 of 3,508 vehicles produced between 1975-1976. It features an aluminum 2.0L DOHC inline-four with Bendix electronic fuel injection and a Borg-Warner 5-speed manual transmission. The prior owner spent a year and a half refurbishing the vehicle after it had been sitting in a garage in Cincinnati for 33 years.  All components were rebuilt, with OE and era-correct equivalent parts used throughout the majority of the build. Paint and graphics are described as original. Good records date back to the 2nd owner in 1977 and hint that the 44k miles shown are accurate. It is being sold with a clean Michigan title and a folder of receipts.

Gold pin-stripping and wheels compliment the black lacquer exterior. The paint is reportedly original and has been color-sanded and compounded, appearing in good condition in photographs with some blemishes noted due to age.

Cosworth badging is correct and a new grille and trim were installed along with a period-correct IECO front air dam. Era-correct BF Goodrich T/A 13” tires were fitted on stock rims.

The interior is clean with new carpeting, window seals, and a new hatch seal. Black upholstery shows little wear, with door panels and dash appearing in equally nice condition. The factory Delco AM/FM/8-track is said to function properly.

The all-aluminum 2.0L inline-four features a Cosworth developed twin-cam 16V head with stainless steel headers and Bendix electronic fuel injection. During the refurbishment, the cylinder block was sleeved and J&E forged aluminum pistons create a 10.5:1 compression.

A 1975 dual-tip lower restriction exhaust system is in place with catalytic converters removed. Shifting comes from a 5-speed Borg Warner T-50 with new needle bearings and front and rear seals. A 4.10:1 gearset and limited slip differential was added. No A/C, power steering, or power brakes were available on the Cosworth Vega.

New brake lines, rear wheel cylinders, pads, shoes, master cylinder, parking brake cables, remanufactured front calipers, and surfaced rotors provide stopping power. New suspension hardware, A-arm bushings and bolts, OE springs and sway bars, and era-correct Koni shock absorbers were installed.
