Thats right. I got another notchie!

I will be using it for the body parts and interior parts. Anyone need a Getrag 5 Speed? I will be parting out what I do not use so hit me up if you need any parts. Keep in mind I will be using all body parts and some of the interior. Only visual parts are being used and any under body parts will be for sale. Just shoot me a PM if there is something you want.

0 found.

As I stated earlier, its a parts car. The guy I got it from lost the title. I may look into filing for lost title but I dont know what all is involved with it. I do know that the motor (according to the previous owner) knocks and is no go. However, I have yet to put a battery on it to see. I will probably do that sometime this week.

I can get another car in this shape (without the motor and tranny) with a sun roof and better interior condition for $200.00.

4cyl + 5speed = Isuzu, Late 86, 87 & 88 V-6 + 5spd = Getrag. And you can tell by how those 2 shift cables are mounted.

And i agree on saving it, looks good and rust free is a huge plus.

I have to agree with Mstangs j/k but he's right we have to start saving these cars too many of them are hitting the parts pile. Sorry for going off topic, good luck with your purchase however you use it.

Well honestly I do love this new car much better than the first. The first 86 coupe is a bumper pad but it is running. The 87 (New car) is not running but seems to be in much better shape other than the motor.

BTW all body panels will swap between years. so 86 can have all 87 body panels which means no more bumperpad

I agree with this 110%. People are just throwing away fiero's nowadays, even ones with little rust (thats hard to find up here). It's really frustrating. All the time I see good frames crushed because no one wants them. The local pull-a-part had three fiero's eariler, all of them rusted to almost nothing. Those i understand, and i pulled many parts off of them. But they are were crushed soon enough. Ironically, I see more 85+ Fieros then i do 84's, then though 84's had by far the most produced. Its because 84's aren't valuable due too their flaws and harder engine swaps.
