This is my 73 Vega I've been working on. 215 Buick 300 buick crank, stroked to 267 cubic inch. T5 5spd. I have drove it about 50 miles with just the driver's seat. It is peppy because it doesn't weigh much.I put a Monza 1" sway bar on it so it handles pretty well. Now I am working on the interior. Hope to drive it more in the spring

Just think if they had originally built them with that family of engines!

GM tried to buy back the rights to the 215 from Rover but they weren't interested, Rover offered to sell GM engines but they declined. Who knows what they planned on using it in.

Craig replies:
In my understanding GM wanted the engine for Cadillac. Rover was still smarting from their purchase from GM (GM wouldn't sell Rover just engines, GM made them buy the whole shebang).

GM's inability to source the engine from Rover led GM to try and design an all-new engine for the first time in a long time. This effort brought us the "wonderful" HT4100...

I bought a '72 Vega wagon with no.motor for $15.
A fellow employee was junking his ex-company car and asked if I.wanted the 307 from the car.
It turned out to be a 235 hp 327.
I installed it into the Vega with some home made side brackets.
A $15 Saginaw with bellhousing completed the drivetrain.

I drove the car and upgraded it over the next couple of years:
Monza motor mounts, exhaust nanifolds and bellhousing.
Am/fm radio with stock rear speaker, GT dash,and
Addco front swaybar and free class 2 tow bar.

I had about $300 in the car when I sold it for $500.

I would have kept if I could have installed A/C.
I should.have kept it and installed a 4.3 V6 & A/C.
