As a quick update on this vehicle, I sent off a few questions but got some noninformative answers. The driver's side mirror is manual, there was no answer to my question about the other mirror, and the A/C is not functional (blows but not cold air). The responder apparently does not know very much about cars.

Re: MERA 8082 at ebay.

I liked the image of the rear end. We can clearly observe where the MERA letters originally was placed :-)

It looks as if the Mera build number tag is still intact also.

Wanted to post this in our MERA thread first. I have two original Chromadoras (without tires or the large silver center caps) for sale. I needed a replacement and had to buy a set of four to get one. I will keep one as a spare so that leaves two for sale. The cost will be what I paid so our small group can persist. Let me know if you are interested.

The Build tag is indeed intact!

I thought the Pennock Fiero community would be interested in checking out my California Smogged, Titled, and Registered 1988 Mera #82 Automatic for no reserve auction on ebay. I have noticed that many people on the Pennock's Forums are incredibly skilled and do amazing things to turn their Fiero into a car that outperforms all cars on the road. I will do my very best to answer any and all of your questions quickly. I am not mechanically inclined (at all) and trusted West Coast Fiero's judgment in giving the car new set of exhaust manifolds, new headers, new catalytic converters, new tires, new flip up lights, new door handles, new wipers, new optima high performance battery with kill switch, and new heater core, complete with a full tune up and major service. In fact, I told them to do whatever is necessary to make the car a fantastic daily driver that is more than capable of doing a long road trip. It runs fantastic, has a terrific exhaust note, and the emissions profile is terrific.

One other member contacted me and he also has a set of two Chromadoras! Now we have a full set for sale!!!

If you have Chromadoras you really should have a spare one sitting in your garage. PM me!

Well I just wanted to give everyone an update on the 1986 Prototype. I sold it last weekend ;( to a very nice guy out of Cincinnati, OH. He was a Pontiac guy who was very interested in the Mera's history and story. I shared this forum with him as well as told him that several members here have extra parts if he ever needs to purchase anything. He states he is trying to keep the car as close to stock as possible and looks forward to taking the car to local car shows with his son. It was sad to see it go, but I am very happy it went to a car guy who will drive it, and continue to improve the car and share the mera story.

So a few days after the sale of the 1986 prototype mera, seriously not happy about selling it, I came across another mera for sale. It's a 1987 Pontiac Mera, mera tag number (6334 Paint Code DuPont B8345 Silver Met) with aftermarket T-tops added by the first owner through a company called cars and concepts. The car has 53,000 miles, 5 speed with cloth interior. The car needs some work, but I couldn't help myself and had to rescue it, and bring it back to its former glory. I'll try and post some pictures shortly.

if you picked that up in Indiana you got Mera #7006 I believe! nice score I have 2 way early Mera stickers that use the last 4 digits as the Mera code.....never sure it was legit but I think Rodney confirmed this silver one as #7006. this also when it was (re)discovered was also the car that Made JanR's Mera #7004 as well as in the category of SE Model as well as #7029
#7005 is here if I remember and labled there right

I don't think it's number 7006. From what I've found, that is number 6325, mine is 6334. batousai666, I sent you an email containing the Mera tag for your records. This car is originally out of Glendale, CA but I bought it in mid-michigan.

That number does not make a lot of sense to me based on what I know about Mera numbering. The first number should be the year it was made (7=1987 and 8=1988) and the remaining three digits should be the production number for that year. If this number is correct the vehicle was made in 1986 and was either number 325 or 334. Note that the commonly utilized Mera production total was 247 and did not start until 1987 (except for the 1986 prototype).

Nelson,
You are correct on the Mera numbering, except there have been a few confirmed early Mera's that Dan (Mera X) has confirmed as Mera's. The Mera number on my new one appears to be the last 4 digits of the vin. I have original documentation from the first owner. The vin decoder shows it as a 1987 Fiero GT. I sent Mera X a picture of the tag for his collection. Dan (Mera X) has confirmed Mera #7006 has a Mera tag similar to mine, showing 6325 (last 4 of the vin). The other confusing thing is old posts state the vins are not necessarily in order of the Mera number. So this doesn't mean that mine is after the confirmed Mera #7006 or before. So this is a little confusing, and I'm hoping to figure it out. It has the original Mera nose sticker, wheel stickers, trunk lid, and appears to have the original untouched Mera tag under the trunk lid. Long lost Mera maybe? Fingers crossed!

On a separate note, need help on tires. The only thing I can find are 215/65R15 for the front and 255/60R15 or 275/50R15 for the back. Will these fit on a stock Mera without issues? I've looked through the old posts about tire sizes but these are the closest sizes I can find. Any help is appreciated!

The earliest Mera in my collection is 7014 and it has a relatively stock Mera build tag. For what it is worth, I have never seen a Mera build tag with anything other than what I stated earlier. However, who really knows what might have happened with the first few builds. WRT tires, I can possibly help out with some additional information. The last time I checked, the 265 x 50 x 15 tires were still available from Mastercraft and Hankook. I have never managed to locate any 245 x 50 x 15 tires but have successfully used the 265s on all four corners with the Chromadora wheel.

Nelson,
Thanks for the reply on the tires. I found some locally, but I may need to add spacers to the back as I have the Fiero rims, not the chromandos and the tires are really close in the rear (I went a little wider in back). I have the original warranty paperwork and it shows a delivery date of July 11, 1987 to the first owner in Glendale, CA. Is that an early delivery date? I know there were less 1987 Mera's built then 1988 but I don't know when other Mera's were delivered in 1987.

Thanks for your help

Let me know if you run across any 245 x 50 x 15 tires during your search. All I know about "stock" rims is that they were used on the 1987 models as well as 1988 Meras. The Chromadoras were optional equipment only in 1988. BTW, they do not look very goodon a 1987 Mera since they were specifically made for the 1988 suspension. Since the Meras came from the factory with the 245 front and 265 rear tires, I can make an assumption that these tires may also fit the "stock" rims but you might have to try a set on the car to confirm exactly how they fit.

I had a set of white diamond style wheels that came with one specific 1988 Mera and they were stock. The car did have Chromadoras installed as well as a custom Recarro style seats with a spare set of conventional gray seats. This particular vehicle was registered to the originator of the Mera (Bob Bracey) and was driven by his wife. Hers was white and his was black IIRC.

Hey, does any know what paint/paint code/color was used for the black bumpers and side vents? I'm going to have to repair mine and wanted to match original specs as close as I can.

Thanks!

I am guessing that this may be a kit car but I do see that the side view mirror still visible appears to be a Vitaloni design. The front bumper also looks like Rodney's European bumper and is not stock but still looks good.

I emailed him about pricing for the front bumper and intended to ask about the front clip when he responded. However, it has been three days and no response. I also see that the ad has been pulled.

I called and left a VM this morning but no response so far and that includes to my initial email. I am starting to believe that this is either no longer available or the current owner does not really want to sell it. I am interested in the entire front clip less mechanical components but would willingly share with someone in need since I really only want the body panels and front bumper. Shipping may be a killer on this "deal" but I am willing to see what the quotes show.

Does anyone know for certain if the front air dam on an 87 Mera is identical to the one on an 87 GT? I need to get a replacement one due to a large tear and would like to know before I dump $100 ++ into it. They look the same to me but I would feel more comfortable if someone else actually knows the answer to this question.

Nice looking car but I am predisposed to like the color since I once has a 1970 Buick GS in the same color. BTW, where did you get the front bumper amber turn signals? I thought that RD was out of them but may not have remembered correctly.

From Rutlands West. Warning-they're spendy. But they are the real Carello Euro lenses.

Greetings Astro...You have The Most Beautiful Mera I have ever seen...Congrats.

Questions: Are those stock Fiero GT wheel rims and if so what are the tire sizes on your car? Love 'em!

Thanks

Yes, they are the stock GT wheels. The tires are 265/50 15. Thank you very much for the kind words. I love how it turned out.

Thanks for sharing.....I can certainly appreciate the effort that went into it and can see why you'd love it -- Well Done!

Question: Is the car riding on the stock suspension?

Thanks

KYBs and the Eibach springs. Lowered it about 3/4". Poly C/A & S/B bushings in front.

I have been working on my interior and I think it has turned out pretty good so far. I installed a set of Mr Mikes seat covers and the PISA Euro dash and door panels.

Mr Mikes stuff is very well made and the install is easy thanks to the video and instructions he provides.

I am trying to decide on carpet color, either black or a light tan color, and if I should leave the console and
shift cap like they are or paint them to match the seat upholstery. I plan on keeping the car black when it is painted.

Your interior looks just wonderful Larry. Very sophisticated. You did a great job!

Are we voting? If so, I would definitely match the shift surround to the console and/or seats. The shift knob would look better if it coordinated as well. However, the black carpet fits the style of the Euro interior very nicely.

Can we see a pic of the exterior? Really love black Mera's

Thanks for your input on the interior, that would definitely look the best and will be the way I go. It was more work than I anticipated but worth it in the end.

My car was originally red, the PO painted it black and put a Series I 3800 in it. I don't feel guilty about the changes I have made since it wasn't an original car when I got it.

The Series I was pretty tired so I put the Series III in, it is way more fun with the new motor.

Wow!! Looks brilliant with those wheels too. Thank you for posting your Mera's picture! If you ever take a new pic with your California mirrors on, I'd love to see it :-)

Larry! Dang that looks sweet. Awesome job. I'd go for black carpet just for keeping it clean's sake. Wow. I'm going to go do something to take my mind off this sudden feeling of jealousy

Here's a couple of pics from the 2016 Lake Garnett Grand Prix Revival last October in Lake Garnett, Kansas. They had SCCA national events here in the 60s and 70s. It was a great event, lots of fun to drive the Mera on a track, and lots of cars to see.






Three mid engine cars in a row, I was lucky enough to get a ride in one of the Panteras.
