NIB Vega Funny car found!

Post  David S on Sat Jul 18, 2015 7:38 pm

Well when it rains,it pours! I went to a gas & steam engine show today in PA. And in the flea market section I found a NIB Cox Vega Funny car.Box is only missing the clear window. All tools,glow plug lead,plastic body prop stand too display car with body tilted up in the front and the instruction booklet and warranty card.Car is perfect except for a small chip in a decal. $140.00 brought it home!

I know what you mean! I guess that a early Thimle Drome tether racer and a Spacebug powered prop rod are next!

I remember when the Vega's were new! They must have really run with a proper V8 in them!Little did we know that a .049 was an option!

The Vega was never optioned with a V8. The Ford Maverick was though, very similar looking car in stock form.

Unless you were thinking of this Vega....



Of course it sported a 494 cube Keith Black blown Hemi.

I remember the Chevy dealer (Simon Chevrolet) in Franklin, Ma (USA) introducing the 1975 Cosworth Vega. It was priced approx. $900 lower than a 75 Corvette. The overhead-cam heads were Cosworth (British) built. A four or five speed manual transmission was available on the less than 4000 units built between 1975/76.

Gotta remember the late, great Grumpy Bill Jenkins.
He campaigned this pro stock Vega in the early 80's.

I know that the Vega came with a 4 banger.....But anytime you shoe horn a V8 into a small lite car it's bound to go like stink!
