This is a really nice low-mileage (35,000) original numbers matching Cosworth Vega. when I got the car - it needed paint, decals, new carpet, tires, weatherstrips, and a few other odds n ends. the engine has been rebuilt and runs great - was tuned properly with a digital A/F meter - and the car runs great for a low compression, 1.2L EFI 4cyl the motor has the CVOA re-timed cam sprockets which really help the bottom end and lets it run a bit cooler. there was no rust on the body at all, one spot on the floor that collected water - and has been patched - car was stripped, epoxy primed, bumped, primed, blocked, and then base/clear. Truthfully, it looks fabulous - but has a few road chips - and after this winter - will probably need an honest 2hours worth of buffing and waxing and then it will look like a million bucks. the tires on the car int he photos are no longer on it - it has NOS Uniroyal Raised White letters in the correct OE size - new correct lugs - btu the wheels have not been restored - they look nice - but could use a detail to be perfect. Interior is really nice - no rips/tears, headliner is perfect, new carpet, new rear carpet, aluminum appliqué on dash has been restored, but there is a crack in the dash pad - am/fm-8track with front/rear speakers work. Heater works, wipers work - but there is no washer pump or rad overflow - i can get them for about 100$ Winshield is new with antenna in the glass as OE. front suspension is new with Energy Suspension parts, and KYB shocks, new brakes and front brake lines - all 4 corners have new pads/shoes etc, new master and prop valve. New starter, new alternator, new belts, (timing, dist, and alt) new alternator, recurved to the CV specs - car has a fully functional MAP, and the CTS and ATS have both been rebuilt/tested and function properly. All hoses under hood are new - so no cracked vacuum lines to chase - rear suspension and shocks are original - as is muffler/tailpipe from trans back... Cat was removed - and its obvious that the exhaust is abotu the only thing underneath the car that will need replacing soon. Car comes with a new clutch/throwout assembly - the ones int he car work great- but occasionally, the throwout moans - so i bought a new assembly to install - just havn't gotten around to it. Engine/trans do not leak - but i drive the car ALOT (up until it started snowing) so it has some road grease under the hood. the aluminum bumpers are nice - could use a polish to be really nice - but the rest of the trim is driver quality - door stainless was mangled a bit before I got the car - and I straightened it as best I could - but they really should be replaced to be superb. the drip rail moldings are long gone - as is the pass side kickout window trim - i have some pieces from a fixed window that are being held on by butyl - it works, but isn't original. Finally, overall this car is excellent - and I've been SUPER nitpicky - the new owner can either have a really sweet looking CV to polish and drive/show - or put a few hundred more into and have a really nicely restored high #2 or low #1 condition car. I have vids of it running that you can message me if interested 3135750642 if you know how to use it! Thanks video of the engine running (TAKEN BEFORE THE PAINT WORK WAS EVEN STARTED) -
