So if Santa left this little bad boy under the tree for me, I’d make one hell of a fun cruiser hot rod out of it. With a mini triangulated 4-Link under the rear, I would be calling on my friends at Ridetech for shocks, some R-Joints, and other odds and ends to get the rear riding nice and hooking up. Up front I’d lean on them for a few parts not intended for a Vega, but that I think could work. Disc brakes, stock looking steel wheels with the factory dog dish caps, a not too nice interior, and either an LTG and a 6-speed or a mellow 5.3 LS with a TKX behind it. Either way the thing would turn heads and be fun to drive and even though it is small it still fits my obsession with long roof cars.
This one doesn’t run, and doesn’t appear to have been operational for some time, but at least you know why it came to sit and fade away. There doesn’t seem to be much if any actual structural rust on the thing and I really think it would look great with the interior vacuumed out and the outside Comet washed. This would be a sweet little hot rod, that’s for sure, and one that I would NOT make into a drag car. Gotta be different. Don’t you think?
If you got this one, what would you do to it?
