northstar fiero based kit car (Page 1/4)

As I need to trim my collection, I am offering the most unusual of them all. After building my northstar fiero I got the bug to go one step further. I took a kit that was intended to produce a northstar fiero and built a custom chassis and fitted it with a one of a kind Porsche 550 spyder body. My intent was to build a northstar fiero only 1000 lbs lighter. In addition to the northstar kit I used 88 fiero suspension, power disk brakes and steering. I know a project like this is hard to value but I've has estimates for its worth between 35k-40k. That is about what I have in it, but considering my situation I would let it go to the right person for 20k. Even if you are not interested in buying, I think all fiero fans will enjoy viewing. Hope Nelson will again help me post a couple of pics.

So how much does it weigh? That's a righteous setup there.

right around 2000 lb

Great unique project and wish you luck selling it. You must have many hours into this creation. As long as it has a sub-frame its a saleable vehicle for the right buyer.

one thing that may be of interest to fiero folk is the rear suspension. I started with the factory 88 parts, then went to a coil over setup. Additionally I made it a 5 link design. One of the benefits of the 5 link is that the entire suspension can be removed and reinstalled and the alignment is maintained.
