Seller claims the interior is very close to original.
Here’s a real one. You be the judge…
I really hope these images are 25 to 30 years old.
Convertible Ferrari Testaross Replica, Built on a 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT.The car looks 99% like the original (interior has some slight differences from the original).
Black exterior with black interior and gold accents.
The engine is a 2.8L V6, 6 speed manual transmission (you can put a V8 engine in it for about $5,000). Engine has about 71,872 original miles. Has only 5,000 miles on it since it was converted to a Ferrari. Engine is in perfect condition. Engine headers, gaskets, and seals were replaced about 200 miles ago because they were leaking oil. Car runs great. No leaks.
All rims, lights, and emblems are original from Ferrari. Wheels, emblems, and exhaust tips are gold plated with 18K gold.
Clutch is new, but the clutch flywheel was not machined, so the car has a slight vibration on 1st gear if you don’t rev it when lifting the clutch.
New brakes have less than 5,000 miles on them.
Tires are in excellent condition.
Battery is brand new.
Convertible top is manual and difficult to put on, it does not seal perfectly so it will leak during heavy rain. I have never driven the car in the rain and never put up the top. Convertible top covers need to have better attachment snaps.
Stereo is custom mounted on the door. It has a high wattage amplifier, a huge 12” subwoofer behind the seat, a talking graphic equalizer, 10-disc CD Changer, and sounds unbelievable! The stereo control face is not working currently and needs to be replaced (may be a simple wiring issue in the door).
The car has an alarm that will page you if the alarm is triggered.
Power antenna goes up and down when the radio is turned on, or when the alarm is sending a page.
The car is equipped with multiple kill switches placed in various places inside the car. The engine will not start unless the switches are all in the correct configuration.
It has an anti carjacking device. It senses when the driver gets off his seat (has a seat sensor), and then if driver door opens while the engine is running, the car assumes it is being car jacked. It will allow the car to be driven for half a mile (so the carjacker is not near the driver), and then shuts off the car at the fuel pump.
The car has a battery disconnect switch to prevent drainage of the battery at times that the car is not driven for long periods of time.
Interior is very close to the original, black leather with gold embroidery.
Interior buttons may need to be replaced with something better. They all work as it is.
Speedometer is not calibrated to show correct speed. You can easily have it calibrated by adding a resistor.
Gas Gauge doesn’t work.
You have to keep track of the mileage and put gas in it every 100 miles driven.
You can probably install a new gas gauge very easily.
Need to fix some parts of the interior leather: dash, driver door (around stereo), and seat headrests. They are developed some wrinkling over time. They can be fixed very easily.
Gas if filled up by opening the trunk and accessing the gas cap by the engine area.
The Air Conditioning system needs to be recharged.
Heater work perfectly.
Front headlights shake a little if you drive on bumpy roads at night. The body parts do have some rattles if you hit potholes. The fins in the doors may need to be attached better so they don’t rattle. You may need to put rubber cushions for the body parts not to rattle.
The body has some minor cracks in the fiberglass on some parts – I can send you more photos. The cracks can be easily fixed by any body shop for about $1,000.
It has air shocks on the front to raise the nose by 2″.
The air pump for the air shocks in located in the trunk.
There is a gauge inside (under the dash by the driver’s right leg) that shows the air pressue in the air shocks. The air shocks will not overfill, it will release air at about 100psi. This prevents damage to the air pump.
I invested about 2 years of my time and about $40,000 to build this car.
I have kept it in the garage at all times and never driven it in the rain. I have taken meticulous care of it. I have driven it for less than 5,000 miles ever since I built it.
You will enjoy it just as much as I have. This car gets a lot of attention!
I have a lot of great memories with it.
I have rented the car for numerous commercials and movies. You can probably make some money from it by renting it for commercials as well.
I will be happy to email you additional pictures of the car.
