(Not sure if this should go here or the classifides. Sorry)I think I'm going to sell my fiero project. It's been sitting for like 5 years. It's got a 3800sc sitting in it. And I got a brand new harness from fieroflyer. It has kyb shocks all the way around (new 5 years ago. No miles) fiero store swaybar added. Has cosmetic stuff wrong with it from being stored. (Cracked windshield and sail panels an stuff). Doesn't run needs swap stuff. (I have the swap harness, hoses, and a new Camaro flywheel to be cut down.) it's a 5 speed getrag that was pulled apar and gone through when the 2.8 was removed. Has 120,000 miles in the car. I got it in California where I'm from so there is no rust. I'm located in middle Tennessee. Anybody got a guess as to what Is fair to ask for the car

An unfinished project won't command a high price... probably less than you've got in the parts and suspension unless the car was purchased on the cheap. I'm not in the market but I'd throw a couple grand if everything is near ready to install and the car doesn't have any rust or serious issues aside from no engine.

Prices are climbing on Fieros but not so much on project cars. It may be cool to check it out, though. Best of luck.

I was offered $5,000 for a runnng, complete 88 3800 T-top swap. There's a guy here on the forum selling an almost complete fastback 3800 swap for $2500 that is running but needs muffler and some other little things. He's had it up for a while now. Given the status of yours, I think you may get $2000 and have a bunch of offers under that. It's harder to sell a project then a runner, but you lose money either way.... good luck

I wasn't planning on getting a million bucks out of it. I know how the car game goes. Lol
I'd be happy to see 2500 bucks out of it. The only thing actually wrong with the car is the windshield is cracked, the sail panel is cracked, and a taillight is cracked. ( and it has a grant steering wheel. The stock one melted out brown stuff from the stitching.)

Scuzzbomer take a trip up here to clarksville and come have a look at it. (Take her away.)
I drove the car from Cali to here on the 2.8 engine in 2008 drove it around here till I got the 3800 in late 2009 started te swap. I deployed for 2010-2011 so it was in storage from 2010-2012. Got sick of paying the storage so I pulled it out in 2012 and did some more work on it (meaning bought more stuff) and here I sits. I have this. a 66 bug, , a g8, 2 86 corollas, a Nissan 240, a dodge 2500, and a 72 nova. And not a single bit of spare time. So I'm having a firesail!!!!

- I see a $200-$300 car.
- $300 engine IF it's a good running 3800.
- Miscellaneous swap parts ~ which I could only give it a 10% value. -$100. Worth more if it was parted out and sold in the mall. (shipping cost + time consuming)
- This would most likely have to be taken apart and completely inspected and redone.

IMHO I value this at $600.

It's in about the worst possible stage of completion to try and sell it.

Crap 200-300$ car. Maybe I should just take it to pic apart by your logic. (They will pay 400)
You seem like a very unhappy person and I hope your life gets better than whatever has you in a crabby mood now
