WOW...and nobody commented on the original Fitch Sprint wood wheel with correct Sprint insert.

Both of those items are super rare...

I wonder if it has other Fitch Sprint performance or handling goodies.

Well Rick, we did not comment because Mario had already done so.

" . . . he has various fitch sprint options such as: steering wheel, steering angle shortening, shifter shortening, flamethrower, grab handle for the passenger . . . . "

Beautiful car Mario,

Please post pictures of the other Fitch Sprint items..

Was Corvair the imported into Switzerland recently or is it an original export from 1964?

@Mel

no, the shield you see belonged to a pontiac firebird 400 H.O. from 1968, which I have inported a few years ago. but I have sold in the meantime. I like the sign and I have it for fun on corvair mounted

hello together
So here are pictures of the dashboard. From my point of view, it would have to act with the special light switch to the flamethrower by Fitch sprint. The dashboard was originally installed in this way
