Hey guys, since i sold my 84 fiero a couple years ago I have been waiting for my next fiero haha. I found this project earlier this summer and havent started on it yet but im almost ready to start working on it. It is a 85 fiero with a sbc 350 crate with a manual trans. The motor is in it and is "supposed" to run, all the wiring needs to be done to the car however, from what ive gathered is this car had a v8 in it and that motor blew up or something and they put this motor in and never finished it. So yes it kind of is a basket case at the moment but with any luck Im hoping to have it running this summer.

Thanks, Mike

I have a feeling that hose might rub on the deck lid a little. Just my opinion though.

Interesting bumper combination.

Looks like you have quite a job ahead of you.

Start with the basics, check the plug wire and make sure they are going to the right place, first and foremost, if it is turning over and no fire. if it won't do anything check all the wires going to the starter, test, test, test before you do anything.

Check battery to make sure that's not the problem. Make sure the engine is getting power to the starter. unless of course the idiot just put the motor in and didn't connect the harness to the engine. Not the way I would do it, but hey it would surprise you to see some of the things I have run into after buying a car/truck or anything with an engine.

If it has not been running, think in storage for a few years drain all the fluids, gas, oil, trany fluids, and don't forget the turn signal fluid, that's an important one.

Looks like you have a good winter project ahead of you.

Good luck

Steve

thanks, for the tips, im hoping to get started on it here in the next couple weeks. yes the coolant hose was the previous owners "temp" hose haha. Im sure this thing will get quite a few curse words out of me and give me quite a few headaches, but im in no hurry or need to get it going other than wanting it to run haha. Im sure ill be asking my fair share of questions on this forum once i get to that point.

Thanks, Mike

I think I remember that one for sale. Nasty wiring, but lots of potential. Plenty of winter left to get it going.

yes thats the one

also ive noticed it also has a fairly new koni aftermarket suspension installed and have the receipts in my stack of papers from 05 and it was about 1300 bucks in parts alone. I know nothing about the particular installed suspension but it seemed like a nice find
