Car Catcher: A Quicksilver, Zimmer’s Neo-Classic Take on the Fiero

Zimmer was known for its neo-classics–long, flowing machines that recalled the excess of the Roaring Twenties. The company was formed in 1978, with the Ford Mustang of the day serving as their starting point. 

Then there was the Zimmer Quicksilver: a lot of chrome, sure, but perhaps less, well, gaudy. The starting clay for this one? The Pontiac Fiero. 

The Zimmer Motorcars Corporation offered the Quicksilver from 1984-’88–same years as the Fiero–with this 1986 model to be offered by RM Sotheby’s at their Scottsdale sale. 

This Fiero-based 1986 Zimmer Quicksilver was finished in May 1986 and was delivered to its first and only owner shortly after,” the house states. “Today it has just 464 miles at the time of cataloguing and is in virtually as-new condition. Its red leather interior and engine bay look as clean as the day it was built, and white suits the lines of the car well. Included with the sale of the car are owner’s manuals, original window sticker, and a copy of its Certificate of Origin. With such low mileage and single ownership from new, this is undoubtedly one of the finest neo-classics in existence.”

Estimate: $40,000-$50,000. Find more details here.

Am I insane, or does this Quicksilver look better than a lot of Zimmers I've seen?
