The Vega, a new concept in passenger cars, will offer a new and different engine as a result of advances in technology. Research data indicate that the Vega engine should incorporate an overhead camshaft and die-cast aluminum cylinder block without liners. Carburetors are similar to those used on other Chevrolet engines.
This paper will also outline specific design and development factors, which make possible this new powerplant creation.
