My 1973 GT Vega
Some Vega and H-body websites
Bob Gumm's V-8 H-body site
This page is dedicated to my 1973 GT Vega. It has a 350 horsepower 355cid engine and turbo 350 transmission. I love this little car. It really rocks!!
The car has brand new paint, engine, trans, drive shaft, brakes, front suspension, rear bumper and valance, radiator, 12 disc cd player, 2 Kenwood subs, and 6x9's all wired into the factory Radio. There are no holes in the seats or carpet, everything in the car works, and the overall condition of the car has to be seen to be appreciated.
The engine has less than 5000 miles on it. 2.02 heads, chevrolet 327/350 horse cam, accel ignition, corvette valve covers, edelbrock dual plane intake, 650 Holley, Holley electric fuel pump, gapless rings, and is mounted using the proper V-8 Monza motor mounts. Also has proper Monza exhaust manifolds, and dual exhaust all the way back. Everything has been done to this car mechanically; including brakes, suspension, drivetrain. It is mechanically A-1.
This little car is not perfect. The seat belt retractors in the front have splits in the housing. The car is not posi. This is not a car for somebody who wants a racecar. It is more of a show and go car. I ran this car one weekend on a quarter mile track. I ran it exactly as it came in the gates. Single traction, 13" wheels and tires, close exhaust, and 32 pounds of air in the tires. The car managed to get in the 14's spinning for the first 50 feet. This car could be kept original with an Auburn gear posi unit, 4.11 gears and 13" slicks (an extra set of GT ralley rims come with the car) and likely run in the 13's. I love this car and hate to sell it at any cost. Getting married and need to sell. I have spent well over $11,000.00 on this car. Selling for $6000.00. Will sell for $5500.00 without stereo. SOLD VEGA!!!
V8 MONZA IS HERE!!!
I recently bought a 1977 Monza Spyder. It is a factory V-8 and still has the 305 automatic intact. It is a little rough around the edges, but I can see a glimmer of goodness in this one. Pictures coming soon. Can be seen at http://www.angelfire.com/freak/nckid4u/hbodies
