Does anyone have a photo of an Fiero instrument cluster with the "Rally Gage" option?

No, not those. The ones that are illustrated in the 1986 Fiero Service Manual.

We'd like to see what you're referring to, as what we've posted are the factory Rally Gauges as far as we're aware.

Is that the rally computer that was prototyped and cataloged, but never installed or offered as an option? Kind of like the power-steering for the 1988's- it shows up in the tech data, but was never available to the public.

I will take a photo of the "Rally Guage" option referred to in the 1986 Fiero Service Manual and attempt to post it.

The round rally gauges mentioned on page 9G-1 of the 1986 service manual were never offered in a Fiero, and the actual rally gauge option is what was already pictured, which came in the 86-88 GT, and the Formula.

With the 85 MPH cluster, there are some cars which had a volt meter at the bottom of the tach, and some cars which had an oil pressure gauge at the bottom of the tach. I am not sure which options resulted in this difference on the 85 MPH clusters.

The "Rally Gauges" I was referring to are the same mentioned by 'dobey'.

whenever a publisher adds 'Typical' to the description, it means they were lazy. "maybe it applies or maybe it doesn't....we really don't know, but it makes our book fatter". There is a car out there somewhere that has these gauges.....

Seen dozens of different clusters, but never seen the rally gauges like that.

As for the voltmeter, that was a part of all 84 gauges. The 85 went to a oil pressure gauge. I would assume that the early 85s used the leftover 84 gauges with voltmeters.

Mystery solved... you are looking at a Firebird service manual. Here is a scan I just made 5 minutes ago from my 87 Firebird manual.

Maybe it was copied over from the Firebird manual. The page is definitely in the Fiero manual too though.

Whoever made the 86 Fiero manual made a mistake and copied in a page from the Firebird manual. Those are definitely Firebird gauges.

I guess Helm made the mistake then. But yeah, they are Trans Am gauges:

Yep... I had an 88 Trans Am and after a minute or two I remembered starting at those gauges for several years.
