Cool Car Find: ’71 Chevy Vega Race Car

The Chevy family member that gets the little piece of chicken at dinner has always been the Chevy Vega. This Vega however, is gunning for that big piece. This 1971 example is a legitimate race car that can run a 6.20 (1/8th mile). The engine is a bored and stroked 421 ci. Dart M block with forged goodies, a Holly 1000 CFM carb, plus a high rise intake and ported heads. The Vega puts the power down trough a Rossler built Turbo 400 tranny and Ford 9″ out back. If you are looking for a car with an insane power to weight ratio (2,350 Ilbs) this a great pocket rocket for under $20k, oh and get the trailer too for an extra $4k!
