About “Millionth Vega #1”

1973 CHEVROLET VEGA GT HATCHBACK - MILLIONTH VEGA
Bright Orange - Light Neutral interior

1 of 6,500 limited special editions of 395,792 1973 Vega production.

140 CID (2.3 L) Aluminum Block Inline-4
3-Speed Automatic Transmission

My first car and one of three Millionth Vega special editions I would own over 34 years (see garage). I bought this first one locally in 1977 with 72k miles. I approached the owner wanting to buy it. He had planned on selling, and I bought it that winter.
The original engine was replaced at 120k miles with a rebuilt steel-sleeved unit. I sold the car to a relative in the mid-80s, but got it back a couple of years later. I soon parted with it however due to its deteriorating condition after thirteen years of daily use, but first had the rebuilt engine swapped into a clean 22k miles, silver GT I towed home from Pa. (see garage)
