The owner of this Chevy Vega brought it to Tin Man for a complete transformation. We'll be changing this dedicated drag car back into a pro-touring styled street car. Motivation will come from a 5.3 Chevy LS motor backed up by a 4L60e transmission. Other parts include upgraded brakes, coil over suspension, steering upgrades and a new four link with a narrowed 9" rear end. Our first step is to remove the old drivetrain and setup some new frame rails that will be going under the Vega's larger wheel tubs we will be installing.
Project Update 2/20/15
The new rear floor and wider wheel tubs are in place. We also received the new wheels and tires for the Vega; test fit those, it's all coming together nicely.
