It depends. Some of the DGP (Diversified Glass Products) cars had varying levels of tune and option. I do know that there were some four cylinder 'Super Duty' equipped DGP cars and the ones that had the L44 V6 carried a turbo charger. You could also simply get the bodies as well for body conversions.

Here's one with the turbo L44 V6

And another with the Super Duty I4

Id much prefer the SD4.. more history and more power potential


this ones my IMSA Mines also a full DGP body... the one on Ebay is missing the over the roof scoop and the Wrap around spoiler and the front chin spoiler.... me personaly i think they look like hell without the spoiler... Mine used to have the SD4.. Also I dont think his was one put together by DGP.. His looks like it was a kit.

Didn't you buy back the original engine? Or did that deal fall through?

I like the wheels on that DGP, though they need to be wider in the back to fill out the widebody.

What's up the this steering wheel though?

I just noticed that he edited the description. I thought it was House of Kolor Orion Silver from the start and he now confirmed it. That color is so obnoxious in the sunlight that the car will stick out like a sore thumb. The flake is so bright that it almost looks wrong on the car. That color is usually reserved as a basecoat with a candy color on top. You can see the metallic in his photo and those were taken on a gloomy day.

Looking at the front end shot, all the gaps are off between hood, fenders, and fascia, buyer beware - could have been wrecked.

I noticed that to... the DGP kit fits almost like a glove... another reason could be is it was peiced together with other IMSA body parts like IRM or FW.

heres my front.. lines up pretty well... i will tell you this though when you jack it up it does get a lil off center though

Nothing special, I have a one of those in my garage. Came off a mid 90 Pontiac. Non-Airbag car. I have one with the Stereo contols in the middle too. Same size as the Fiero wheel, and a modern touch. Cost about $15 bucks at the Jyard

DGP built only a few of these and that is not one of them. FieroMonkeys was part of the first three race bodies that were ordered and made to fit the Fiero frame. Mine was the actual first built directly to a Fiero and was Pontiac Motor Sports and GM's show car and was built with no marker lights. Then they built the Car Craft Car. One other was built at the shop for John Callies and was changed 3 times to its final state of a stage IV. All others came with marker lights after mine. You could buy these kits and you would install them or your body shop did it like this silver one.

If the price was right I may sell mine. Rick B

Haven't seen/heard of one with a turbo V6.

Just to correct some misinformation, mine is not an L44 Turbo, it is a Turbo SD4, originally was a Turbo duke that had everything except the bock SD4. Crank, rods, pistons, head, valves, intake, all SD4 parts, only the block was a stock duke. I didn't trust the block, so i acquired a SD4 block motor to replace the stock duke block with SD4 parts setup it had when i got it.

Silver car on ebay has a lot of potential.

Not at all. Info on these cars is scarce at best, and often incorrect or missing at worst. I have thought I had known things about my own car, then learned I had it wrong, so don't feel bad.

Did anyone go and check this car out? Just wondering if anyone was able to see if the alignment was accident related or a lack of attention to detail after paint? I'd ditch the aero nose and go for the classic DGP look. Just happen to have the stuff hanging on the wall to do it. Now the wheel issue, any ideas on longer wheel studs and 1/2 spacer as a short term visual fix?
