V8 Swapped Wagon: 1972 Chevrolet Vega GT

The 4th of July might be over, but the spirit of America is still running strong in Chico, CA where this next slice of apple pie is located.  Find this 1972 Chevrolet Vega GT with small block V8 offered for $11,000 in Chico, CA via craigslist. Tip from Terry B.

From the seller:

1972 Chevy Vega 

fuel: gas 
title status: clean 
transmission: manual 
Has S.B.C. V8 and Muncie4 speed, runs and drives, is on a non-op, I drive it around a little now and then to keep it up and running, the body is in very good condition with no body damage, the body and paint look great, the interior is pretty decent but as you can see the driver's seat, and there's a few cracks in the dash, this car has dual exhaust, the Vega GT was born a classic, resembling the Camaro back in '70, the '71 Vega were on some car lots in late '70 for around $2300 new, the G.T. 2-door wagon is just a nice looking car, asking $11000 O.B.O., and I don't want help selling this car, no emails,  

See a better way to drive a fast vega?


  1. Photo nimber 22 in that ad would have made an excellent "what am I"

    Presumably it is in some way related to a 1972 Chevy Vega , but I have no idea what or why.

    1. I'll take overpriced 1970s cars for $300

      What is a Vega, Alex?

    2. Hopefully the frame has some reinforcements. If not it will pick one front wheel under acceleration when the frame twists. They were actually nice looking cars, too bad they came equipped with biodegradeable engines...

    3. I figured it out. It's extra parts for the vega thrown in a wheel barrow.

    4. Thank you-

  2. GT or Kamback? Recall?

    1. Yes, no, maybe both or maybe neither depending on what you mean by Kammback (not Kamback BTW)

      The wagon was branded as the Kammback , but was not technically a Kammback. The notchback and the hatchback on the other hand had actual Kammbacks .

      "In mid-1971, Chevrolet introduced an optional GT package for hatchback and Kammback models, which included the RPO L11 two-barrel 140 engine, F41 handling option, special tires and trim." says Wikipedia.

      All clear now?
