    Burbank CA - LP640 Replica for sale AGAIN - 3rd time in a few months....

    I have seen this car up close and I would not buy it. Check the Head On photo, see the mirrors... one is positioned much higher than the other. I think this build may have been put together rather fast. I do like the Paint though. ;D

    Steering colum has not been shortened, Stereo installed sticks out, original Fiero suspension and brakes. Seat belts are wrong, window cracked and window support leaning in from what I recall. Windows do not go up or down, Not sure what on the interior works or what doesn't, Side mirrors were GLUED on and as I mentioned - One was glued higher than the other. No working bat wings or spoiler, I think he stated the 2.8L engine has 242,000 miles on it, If I recall correctly there were some gaps in which things did not look lined up, interior is vinyl...I can go on. I must say thoigh ...the guy that did the interior did a pretty nice job... it just should have been in leather and the paint job is certainly spectacular. I was impressed from far away but as I got up close and personal Murci-Me pointed out all the things that were incomplete or incorrect ar just done cheap.

    If anyone buys it I think they can plan on adding at least another $20k+ to get it right and probably would be a good idea to swap out the engine. 8)

    MURCenary is right, $20K worth of fixes. The car was built in 7-8 weeks, and was thrown together in the hopes of turning a profit. Dont be fooled by the pics, the car needs alot of work.
    Without talent experience is worthless
