Good stuff Lambo_Sam. It makes me wonder why the highest quality (six piston Dynapro) brakes are available as an option for the Fiero chassis but you are stuck with four piston Dynalite calipers on the upgraded tubular chassis, especially since both calipers use the same bolt pattern. The chassis I saw in their shop had a bunch of funky orange and yellow and green stripes still painted on it, just the way it had come off the playground.

Hi all, I have some of the original IFG brochures and kit package list and there is a picture of a very similar tubular built fiero chassis and it was selling for 10k, I chosen the 1st option back then...

Michael,
   In spite of it's odd design, it could easily be a perfectly good chassis, I just do not know. I had seen these in IFG's shop around 2001 but did not pay much attention, except to quickly form the opinion that some kid was missing their swingset. Here is another way to assess the value of that package. A good body kit with glass is worth $10,000. Without the glass that same kit is worth about negative $2,000. Use that as a baseline and factor in the other parts.

Yep, second that, it is an IFG. Ray only made a few of these, I think his kids ran out of jungle gyms.

Looks like IFG's tube frame setup.

Was wondering if anyone knows who made this kit?  I haven't got pics of the body yet but was told it is a Diablo open top.  Considering buying it but not sure what its worth.  owner has the following parts

Chassis
body
glass
interior
LT1 engine and wiring
Porsche transmission
Fiero for part.

Any ideas?
Thanks Mike
