That actually looks pretty good. Way better than the kit that makes the Fiero look like a 3rd gen Corvette. If you like the Corvette looks but don't have C6 cash this kit would be a fair compromise.

I like it too. A lot.

Wish I could see it without that spoiler and from more angles. Looks like a tremendous amount of work has gone into the body.

Sez the "kit" is only $1000.00. May have to contact for more details. Do you think the vette guys would be as pizzed with a fake kit vette as the Ferrari guys are with fiero based ferrari kits?

Looks like the seller purchased most of the C6 panels and then adapted them to the fiero chassis. Doesn't look too bad, but probably would be better with a notchie and a glass hatch.

There are quite a few people putting the C6 panels on C4's and C5's... so why not a Fiero...

You mean that 100% stock Fiero wing?

But I guess if you are going for the Corvette looks then you should lose the Fiero wing.

I tend to agree with most.. I think it has potential! If the body has been done right,and doesn't fall apart and lines up well,$3k might be a good leaping point...
I know there was a(PISA??)kit available a while back that was a total knock-off of a 80's/90's Vette...

I hope someone here gets it!!

Sounds pretty good.

I sent a question about the rest of the car to him,

"Looks nice! I apologize if i missed it, but is it a stock Fiero every where else, such as 2.8, 5 speed, interior, suspension, etc? How many miles? No rust on chassis? Everything works? Thanks!"

he responded:

"Yes , its stock fiero, I was planning to do a v8 swap or a supercharge 3800 v6 , but had no time , I gotta move , I lost my home , but yeah no rust , it runs great , 250k miles but rebuilt motor ,everthing works fine, but air condition needs refill. "

Looks like there is a bunch of body work and fine details left to do. But that would just be part of it as long as it has been mounted well.

I agree it needs a hatchback on it, then decide about a wing or trunk spoiler. With a wide body on there we have another madcurl car....

For a cheap enough price that would be a fun project to have.

I like the front bumper. Zooming in shows a lot of work still needed to shape the panels better. Lines between door and front quauter at the top are out also. He covered the old panel looks like because the old intake is still there. I would have to see it in person to buy it.

I think it looks pretty good too except the wing. Any fiberglass kit needs lots of fitting work. It would make a much better looking convertible. Also needs some wheels that set into the openings instead of sticking out like gangsta's. Wonder if they would let you into an all Corvette show. I got my V8 car into one after I opened the hood and showed them the Corvette engine. They werent gonna let me in with my Corvette club. They do let the other kit Corvettes in like Year Ones '61 model, or the one that makes a C5 into a '53.

Unless you swapped in a V-8, I'd be too embarrassed to drive it. Looks cool and cheaper than an actual C6. For his BIN price, you can drive a decent C4 that would out perform it. Damn good price on kit.

I could live with a V6 in it for reliabilty. I dont need a street race car. C3 Corvettes some years had as little as 140 hp (same as Fiero v6)

One does not 'end up with a Fiero", one chooses it as a superior vehicle that was before it's time.

------------------
Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!
