EM Fitch Sprint quest.
Posted by: Roadblock ()
Date: July 11, 2019 09:39AM

Hello folks, I am making a '64 Sprint "tribute" car out of a Spyder 'vert, and I was wondering if any one knew of a place or person that has a set of spinners for Hands wheels? Also, I have read that there were options for having a leather covered glove box door and other bits on the interior, I have been unable to find any pictures of these options. Any information on these two items is appreciated.
Thanks
Paul.

Here is a little thought challenge....

When you hear the words Corvair Fitch Sprint, what options come to mind...

What do you see in your minds eye ?....

I am a late model fan, so the AEON springs and the Venttop.

My 64 yellow spyder convert has/had
the 'visual effects' (minds eye):

full front stone guard
black narrow stripes
sprint emblems on front fenders
Hands wheels

Now suspension and eng mods are
not 'visual' and I won't mention
mine here. The outside appearance
of either early or late cars is still
eye-catching to this day.

First item I think of are the Hands Engineering wheels and then the EM full front stoneguard.

Having met Mr. Fitch a few time (including a few laps in the Phoenix on Limerock with John at the wheel) when someone say Fitch Sprint I think of the man, and how easy it seemed for him to drive that car at the speeds we were traveling. It's something I will never forget.
