No,
Fitch wood wheel with that look was made of Aluminum and had six holes in the three spokes.

John Fitch modified two other cars that never got much past prototype.

The Fitch Firebird (Pontiac Firebird) and the Fitch Phantom (Oldsmobile Toranado)

He also dabbled with Performance/suspension setup with VW bugs, but not a whole car makeover like the Sprint, Firebird, and Phantom.
