This is something I've seen before, and think could work on an A Body. A guy I knew on a tempo forum got an extra set of front & rear bumpers. He cut off the bottom few inches of the extra set, and mounted them upside down to his existing bumpers.

I checked, and my 93 has a flat lip under the front bumper where you could mount something like that. I've yet to check the rear, but I'm assuming it does. If side skirts couldn't be sourced from either another A at the yard or another car (J Bodies maybe), they wouldn't be super hard to make out of fiberglass.

Feel free to check out his cardomain:

I just checked ebay & there doesn't appear to be any international or eurosport body kits on right now.

As soon as I get all my sh*t together and find a Ciera convertible, I'll be going through all my Cutlass Eurosport parts and unfortunately, there's quite a line ahead of you...

I'm not in a super hurry for a body kit. I need to find a rust fee A Body before I really start thinking about that.

I may actually start looking for one next spring.

Just a quick guess, they appear to be off of a cutlass ciera international. Odds are he did some leg work.

They're actually quite different than an International.

They are Chevrolet Cutlass Eurosports, sold in Mexico.

So in other words... I would have a better chance of being struck by lightning then finding those parts?

That one looks identical to my International except with color matched GFX.

There were a couple of different versions...Some came lower than that and had a cut out for the exhaust. I think 1992 or 1993 was the changeover. The black car might have been a 1991. I have a couple of both styles.

The Cutlass Eurosports are sweeeeeet. I would lve to have one, or even a clone with a stick. I cannot understand WHY in the F GM didn't market that look here. That would have been a hot selling car. Oh well, it aint the first time GM screwed themselves....

True, true. I'm debating whether or not to buy a Ciera 'vert up in Dallas after I sell the '94 Supreme 'vert and convert it to a Cutlass Eurosport 'vert with a 5 speed, rear discs, all the toys and maybe a hot 60* V6...(I'm done with my L67 phase.LOL!)
