The world’s coolest Fiero is for sale. That’s not an opinion on the “world’s coolest part” either. With a surgically clean LS3 swap, a six speed manual transmission, and absolutely perfection paint and interior, this thing is ridiculously cool in every respect. Amazingly the sale price is super reasonable as well. The guy is asking $13,900 for the car as it sits, which is peanuts when you consider what that dude has in it in parts, time, and sheer frustration to make it all work. Oh, and John Force has sat in it, so there’s that too.
If there is one part of the whole program that may be slightly on the touchy side it would be the GM F40 manual transmission that is in the car. It is a solid piece and it has been refined over the years but it is definitely not known for its ability to hang onto the torque of an Ls3 engine. From the factory they were rated for like 290 lb/ft or something of that nature. So what does that mean? 8,000 clutch dumps would likely be a bad idea in the car and power shifting the thing on a prepared strip may lead to you getting your hands dirty but the reality is that you’ll be able to have a lifetime of fun in this sucker if you just drive it like a human being and not like you are trying to punish it every moment of every day.
This looks to be an amazingly well built car and something that we’d kill to get our hands on for a few days. For less than $15,000 someone is going to have the time of their life! This was about a 90hp car when new. Now? 430 of them. Yeah buddy!
