  • I am restoring Fiero Indy Pace car, would you guys be interested?

    I am currently doing a restoration on a rare 1984 Indy Pace Car Fiero, for a client. If you guys would be interested I can post photos and updates here as I go along.

    Here's what I am starting with.







    Here I am changing the hood.



    Here are some photos of the car.






    Here is the interior.



    Here is the seat recovered.




    This is what it will look like finished. I have all the stuff including the graphics.

    Yeah, I'd like to see how this goes along. Looks like the car's generally in pretty good shape considering it's age.

      Photos make it look better then it is. Its a solid base to start with, but needs tons of love.

      Today we tore the motor apart. It had some oil leaks, needed new vacuum lines and a full and complete tune up. We will also do motor mounts.

        Is this going on eBay when it's done?

          I'd like to follow the build too! It looks alot better than rusty projects around here.

            Put a super duty 4 in it. Like the actual pace car.
            Even the longest journey begins with the first step.

              Super Duty would be EPIC!!!

              And no this car is being restored for a customer. Its going to kept in a private collection when completed.

                Talk about luck. As we tore into the motor we found a awesome surprise. This car has a brand new motor!! The head was SPOTLESS, and we pulled the push rod cover and it was new in there as well. We even could see plain marks on the top of the block between the head. No doubt about it, this is a new motor.

                  I finished the other seat today. And we are still working on the mechanical work. Hopefully by the end of the weekend it should be back on the road.

                  Old nasty seat.


                  All better.


                  These will look sharp in the car.

                      Today we did AC work and started the rear wheel bearings.

                        Sorry I haven't updated this thread in awhile. I still have been very busy with the Indy. The paint and body are now done, and we will be starting on the final assembly soon. Also all the mechanical work is competed, so the car runs and drives like new, we even rebuild the AC system so now it has ice cold AC.

                        Here are the photos.
