Rare Custom Sparks Turbo at Custom Car Crafters in N. Austin

Written by Ken Altes

Not what I first thought. This is a steel body on a Cadillac chassis with a turbo charged Caddy engine.  Sparks apparently made about 90 roadsters like this in the early 1980s.  Seems to be related to the Clenet, similar looking. French leather interior, long wheelbase.

  1. I own the Sparks Roadster featured in several TV movies in the early 80’s ( Flamingo Road, Hunter and one more ) it was dismanteled for restoration, the guy died that was restoring it and it sit in his garage for years before his wife sold it. It runs and drives but needs total restoration, only about 3 of these cars left. I will sell it for $20,000. For pictures text me at 1-251-597-5682 dave ( sold in the 80’s for more than $80,000 )

    • Hi, I have a friend who has the number 3 production in white Sparks Turbo Roadster. Do you know the value? It is excellent condition with less than 9K miles on it
