STK 2083 1988 Chevrolet Sprint Turbo Go-Kart If you would plan to
build a true street sleeper, what car would be the best cover?
Plymouth Valiant - don't think so. Ford Fiesta - probably not.
Chevrolet Metro/Sprint - yes, perfect. The Sprint was an econo-box
offered by GM back in the '80s. Back then, it was powered by a
three-cylinder engine - not exactly a boulevard cruiser. This 1988
Sprint was professionally reconstructed from the ground up in 2007.
Fatman Fabrications, Charlotte NC, built a custom square-tube
street rod frame that incorporated the unitized body. They used
Macpherson strut front suspension and Nissan truck brakes. The
differential is a narrowed Ford 9 with Detroit Truetrac and 2:50:1
gearing. The engine is an all-aluminum, twin turbo 402ci dry-sump
small-block built by Duttweller Performance, Ventura CA. Only the
best components were used: Brodix block/heads, Comp roller-cam,
forged crank/rods, CP pistons, twin Precision Turbos and Big Stuff3
EFI. This engine dynoed at 954 BHP on pump gas. The transmission is
a GM TH350. This is a one-off monster and it's street-legal. Every
aspect of the build is fully documented (including dyno sheets).
Back in October 2013, Hot Rod Magazine published a nice piece on
this Sprint in the Wrenchin'@Random section. They were impressed.
This little Chevrolet needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. It
is an engineering marvel. Call 800-650-1055 or visit
