The Cosworth Vega began its origins in the racing division of Cosworth Engineering as Chevrolet, in the early 70's sent engineers to England in a quest for cylinder head technology to produce more power in for the Vega. In development, racing engine built on the Vega Aluminum block produced a reported 260 hp and powered Chevron and Lola race cars to wins in the 2 liter class in their debuts. After a few years of hurdles to over come, and project freezes, the Cosworth Vega was finally ready for the American Public in the model year 1975. All were painted in black with gold graphics, and all came with the famed Z09 engine, with was very similar to the engine that powered victories in IMSA and Trans Am 2.0 liter classes, although be it detuned and missing the dry sump system. Chevrolet built just 2061 Cosworth Vegas in 1975, A ll were finished in black acrylic lacquer with gold trim and “Cosworth twin cam” lettering and hood bulge and body sides, wheel openings and rear cove. Custom perforated vinyl interiors were standard, and most had black interiors. All Cosworths had a gold plated engine-turned dash bezel, gold-plated dash plaque with build sequence number, 8,000 RPM tachometer, and Cosworth Twin-Cam Vega steering wheel emblem.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1975 Chevrolet Cosworth Twin Cam Vega for consideration. This very tidy example offered here was ordered new from Comanche Chevrolet in Santa Rosa, CA. According to the original build sheet, the car came highly optioned including: Adjustable seat backs, tinted glass, z09 decals, floor mats, roof drip moldings, sport mirrors, sport stripe, door handle tape, HD suspension, 3.73 rear axle, posi trac axle, twin cam engine, 4-wpeed manual transmission, California emissions, custom steering wheel, Cosworth wheel, HD Battery, Gauge Package, AM Radio, RR seat speaker, HD Radiator, bumper guards, Z09 twin cam engine, etc. This Cosworth Vega was the 119th vehicle built in 1975, it has been selectively restored and presents itself in excellent condition throughout, featuring excellent black paint and Cosworth trim, near perfect wheels and a wonderful interior. Mechanically, the twin cam, fuel injected engine is strong, the headers and sport exhaust give it head turning growl, and the sport suspension gives it excellent handing capability.
Car and Driver magazine is quoted in saying after testing a prototype in 1973: “Cosworth Vega 16 valve: More than an engine. A taut-muscled GT coupe to devastate the smugness of BMW 2002 Tii's and 5-speed Alfa GTV's. …each one built away from the tumult of the assembly line to precision tolerances, as a show of technical force by Chevrolet. All of them will be collector's items. How true was this statement 42 years ago. Cosworth Vega's are rare, unique, and a blast to drive; for these reasons, they are sought after and have international appeal. Documentation includes original build sheet, Service and Owners Manual supplement, and original dash plaque.
