1971 Chevrolet Vega Pro Street by Dave Haney
Dave Haney is the man behind this Pro Street Vega, a vehicle that would easily draw a crowd of Chevy fanatics the instance it makes an appearance. Based on a 1971 Chocolate Brown Z28, the 1971 Chevrolet Vega Pro Street in front of you benefits from the craftsmanship of Ted Monsell at Trick Works.
The highly modified Vega started off by being completely stripped down before having the chassis upgraded thanks to Chris Alston’s Chassisworks frontend, a Ford 9-inch rear, a 32-inch ladder bar suspension with Koni coilover shocks, not to mention a set of Wilwood brakes.
The engine bay now houses a custom firewall along with a 355 ci Chevy small-block, with Lunati 10.5:1 pistons, Dart 225cc aluminum heads and a Dart intake; please note that all wiring to the engine is hidden through framerails and under the dash. Have I mentioned the 750-cfm Holley Dominator carb?
Obviously, the exterior looks different compared to the day this car left the factory. The split front bumpers were made from two original bumpers, while the rear ones were stretched to handle the modifications. Also worth mentioning the custom cowl-induction, in-house fiberglass hood
The cabin was custom-made from fabricated sheet-metal, with the floors, door panels, and dash are all handmade from aluminum. The gauges are Auto Meter, the steering wheel is a removable Mark Williams piece, and the shifter is a Hurst Pistol Grip Quarter Stick. The Kirkey seats, laced with Deist belts, are backed by headrests made from driveshaft loops. Had enough?
