I own a 1987 Fiero in the process of doing a Chevrolet SBC swap. I have a parts car that i will start to tear apart and sell on here so if you need any specific parts let me know. Heres some pics of my current car in progress. BTW the person in the pic is not.(Thank

Welcome!

Looks like a testarossa kit that the tails were not done right. Would have to see the front to verify. I would love to make some molds off of that!!!



If you ever decide to go back to the fiero body for a short time hit me up!

I dont know exactly what kit is on it. The front bumper was horribly ugly. Im going to use a stock gt bumper with a lip spoiler on the bottom. Does anybody know what other lights will fit these besides these mustang lights. Thanks, Zach

I dont know if it'd be much of an improvement, but they make "altezza" tail lights for the late 80s mustangs. You can find them on ebay.

They also do them in black/tinted. Otherwise you could put whatever you want in there, if you dont mind doing the fiberglassing.

nice looking car and to quote im not sure its a testarossa kit. it looks very similar but the back looks slightly different i think like the testarossa has more of a fast back it seems and this kit not so much. but all in all really nice and looking forward to more pics!

oh... it is... i'm sure of it. Would like to see the nose though... i'm real curious now!
There were a ton of different ones made only a few were decent. this one is the same as this kit,


I've been a long time testarossa kit fan. As this one was not one of the more accurate ones with the sides it was however a better fitting kit when it was produced. I'm always looking for one that was never put on a car. The prices are just crazy still.

I am by no means an expert on them. I just really like some of them and would love the chance to build one for myself.

I love the sides and rear of your ride!
BTW, I mis-read your title, and wondered how many yellow Fiero owners we have.

2. I am on the space coast, Melbourne,fl

3. I have an almost complete 1987 GT parts car.
