It is almost an automotive cliche to turn a Pontiac Fiero into something more exotic and flashy. Ferrari and Lamborghini body swaps seem to be the most common ones. The Fiero’s plastic body panels made the car perfect for this sort of thing. General Motors made a dizzying number of powerful front wheel drive 4-6-8 cylinder engines that are ripe for swapping into the Fiero platform. Find this 1986 Ferrari 308GTS Replicar in Orange, CT for $11,500 via craigslist.
The listing is very short on details about the car. The car has the stock 2.8 pushrod V-6/4 speed manual combo only has 30,000 miles on it. Recent work includes a new: clutch kit, clutch cables, and shift fork.
The body looks to be in great condition and does a strong job impersonating a Ferrari 308. The stance crowd will not be a fan of the amount gap between the tire and fenders here. The interior does not make much of an attempt to recreate the Ferrari
car. The only major modification seems to be the addition of the four
spoke wood steering wheel and prancing horse badge on the passenger side
of the dash.
Yesterday’s edition of DT featured a Fiero with a supercharged 3800 V6 engine. What engine would you swap into this car to match it’s racy looks? Northstar? 4.9 Caddy V8? 3.9 pushrod V6?
