We get content submissions here at BANGshift.com ALL THE TIME. And we LOVE them, because they are usually interesting and cool and something we want to share with other readers. One of our readers, Rocco, submits Craigslist ads to us all the time and they are cool as hell usually. But this one is extra cool to me. I’m a die hard Chevrolet guy, and think Vegas are cool little cars, but the Cosworth Vega was a special little beast. With a dual overhead cam 4 cylinder that came equipped with a header and way more power than the stock 4-banger, these little cars moved. And since they were built on a limited production run of just 3,500 cars, they aren’t super common to find for sale.
If you are familiar with BANGshift and read it regularly, like you should, you’ll know that we sometimes put up cars and trucks for sale under our Rough Start title and that’s what Rocco did when he sent this one in. But I think he’s wrong. Here’s why.
This car is from Pennsylvania, and does have a little rust, but it has less than 27,000 miles on it and is in amazingly original condition. The rust that is present looks predominantly like it came from being covered and wet at some point in it’s life, not from being driven on salty roads. In fact, there appears to be little or no rust at the bottom of the fenders and quarters in these photos. So to me, this thing needs to get some love, but is a car that could be a riot to drive and have just because of the story behind it. And did we mention it comes with some spare parts and new parts to make it even better? Yeah, we would look at neutralizing the rust, making it run like a top with the addition of a little turbo and some efi help, and then driving the living snot out of it.
What would you do with it?
