welcome.......You are saying Cosworth Vega....which meant it oriiginally had the Cosworth engine option........The car is a great looking car and with those times runs very well, but I have to ask.....What happened to the cosworth, and didn't removing it hurt the value of that rare car?

yes and no,a low mileage low number Cosworth isn't going for much over $7000.My car is high mileage and the motor was broke when i bought it.Once it's done and to the right buyer it may be worth more than an origanal one.
Isn't "Hot Rodding" about making the car the way "You" want it?

Hello and Welcome to Hotrodders were glad to have you. Nice Vega. My sister had a 73' GT Vega. Neat little car. The only thing that was in good condition was the GT steering wheel. It had the rust and the 4 cylinder that liked the oil. Everybody tried to buy that steering wheel though. I should have V-eighted it.
