1972 Chevrolet Vega Hatchback Description

Up for sale is this excellent example of a 1972 Chevy Vega hatchback. This car is stock and unmolested. There can't be very many like this left in the world!
This car is in excellent overall condition and comes with the original owner's manuals. It wears most of its original metallic green paint, but there has been some touch up work done in a couple of places. Rockers, seams under the doors and hatch are all in excellent condition.

This would make a great car to turn into an V8 LS powered hot rod, or just leave it alone and enjoy as-is, 1972 style.
This car is manual brakes, manual steering, and has factory front disk brakes.
It does run and drive, but the carburetor could use a little adjustment. Cold starts and running are fine, and I have driven the car, but occasionally it will die when you 'load' it (like pulling onto a trailer). The engine does not smoke or make scary noises. Reman carbs are available on Ebay for $100.00.
The factory stock exhaust is the worst thing about the car rust-wise, and it is functional but does have some leaks. There is a small bit of rust on the bottom of each rear quarter panel. This is very minor and I have tried to include pictures. There are other areas of surface rust on this car, and there is a hole under the battery where it appears a battery leaked at some point. There is a scratch on the windshield from a windshield wiper.
I do have many more detailed pics. Serious buyers can contact me for those pics or to discuss other details at 866-936-9610. This car is very very nice, but obviously isn't new. There is no substitute for inspecting a car in person, but we'll do our best to communicate everything we know about this car.
This car is for sale at a dealership, and purchaser will have to pay fees and such as are applicable depending on state of residence. We reserve the right to end the auction early if the car sells locally. Car is for sale as-is, where-is. No warranty of any kind is expressed or implied.
We are happy to work with your transport company if you choose to have the vehicle delivered.
