Chevy Monza new release - 4 cylinder engine needed

Recommended Posts

My wife used to have a '77 Chevy Monza so I got one of the Monza re-releases the other day. It doesn't have the 4 cyl engine, but the rest of the kit looks decent enough to build like hers was. Does anyone know where I can get one or does someone have good pictures of all four sides so I can? A lengthy google search was unsuccessful, I only found a good picture of the passenger side. 

If this is in the wrong forum, please move it mods.

That would be the Vega engine with the Opel (GM Europe) sourced 4 speed transmission - All of the MPC Vegas, with the parts for a stock version, have this engine.  Not sure, but the Monzas may have had the GM Saginaw 4-speed or an automatic transmission.  There should be plenty of these engines in parts boxes out there, I don't think too many Vegas were built stock.  One should show up if you can move this over to the wanted section.

Did it have the Vega 2.3L or the Pontiac "Iron Duke" 4-cylinder? If the latter, the 1/25 MPC Pontiac Fiero kit includes one:


A bit of offtopic, but do you or does someone else have that kit and would they be willing to take a picture of two of the Iron Duke engine? I'd need one to be able to build a replica of my 1:1 scale daily driver, a Chevy S10 but I don't want to buy the Fiero kit without having any information if the engine is good or not. Because to be honest I don't have interest for the Fiero kit otherwise.
