5k Flash: Tarted Up Fiero: 1986 Zimmer Quicksilver

The Zimmer Quicksilver is a Pontiac Fiero based ‘custom’ built in small quantities by the Zimmer Motorcars Corp from 1984-1988.  Oddly enough Zimmer is still in business today and sells ‘era’ cars in exotic locals (like Jordan) to folks with more money than sense.  Find this 1986 Zimmer Quicksilver for sale in Birmingham, AL currently bidding on ebay for $6,900 with a few hours to go.

The Quicksilver sits on a stretched Pontiac Fiero frame and looks like a Lincoln version of the 2-seat runabout from GM.  Can’t say we’ve ever seen one in person, and it looks ‘memorable’ in the photos.  Zimmer started with a Fiero chassis/powertrain and added its own ‘coachwork’ to create the thing you see in the photos.

Mechanical parts are all basic Fiero stuff, this one is powered by the 2.8 liter L44 V6 rated at 140 horsepower and 160 ft-lbs of torque.

The inside is basic GM stuff, but pimped out with guady red leather and faux wood covering the basic Fiero dash/gauges.

We can’t ever imagine recommending a Zimmer Quicksilver to anyone, but if you were shopping for an inexpensive and ulta-rare car like a Borgward Isabella, we may attempt to be a good friend and instead try to guide you to something that can be fixed with Fiero junkyard parts, like this Zimmer.
