New toy on the way

Postby T-FATTY » Sat Jun 09, 2018 11:15 pm

After missing a couple of turn key resto V8 Vegas I found a nice solid V8 Vega that's my blank canvas. Its a rust free 72 with Doug Thorley kit holding a 327/glide with a narrowed 8 3/4 Mopar rear. Sold my 72 V8 3 or 4 years ago, had 6 toys since and never got over the vega. Cant wait for it to get here.

Looks pretty nice. How's the interior?

The interior needs work, a carpet and seats. I already got a carpet from ACC, the seats may be a problem finding good originals. I'm thinking a set of stockish looking Corbeau seats.
It does have a nice dash and door panels etc.
