This is my 74 Vega Kammback Wagon. When I bought it in November 2005, it already had the 350ci., Holley 750 4bbl,Edelbrock Torker intake, Crane street/strip cam and lifters, 350T.H.trans., Hurst Quarter stick shifter and 411 gears in the rear. It came with everything i'll need to convert the front end to S-10 5 lug disc brakes. What it needed was an alternator and brackets, top and bottem rad.hoses, belt, header flanges welded and exhaust installed. Pretty much, that was all it needed to put'er right back on the street.
My plans are to install subframe connecters, a 12 point roll cage with swing out bars, crossmember,ladder bars and coil-over shocks. As for the engine, well, i haven't really driven it yet(except for on and off the trailer when purchased) so i'll hold off on buildin'er up until I get a chance to see how it feels. The only rust i've found is a little on the dash at the bottem of the windshield. With the exception of a few wal-mart parking lot dings down the sides, and a small dent in the corner of the tailgate, the body and floor are in great shape.
Once the body work is done, she'll be headin' to the paint shop in primer and coming out in bright Lemon-ice and black.
Check back for progress pics.
And last, but not least, I've gotta say thanx to my buddy LJ. Without him, I wouldn't have either one of these cars. The man drove from Maryland to Michigan and back for the 72GT, and to New York and back for the 74wagon. Thanx bro.
