4cyl 5spd 115k miles in fair condition. A bit hard to start. Cranks awhile before starting. Has a slight miss at idle.

How much would it be worth? Anything to look for? Chassis seems ok, goes straight and the shocks work.

Looking for an AtoB commuter for the summer.

Never realized how neat fieros are. A lot of room inside for big drivers. A fun a car to drive.

Depends on location. A running but rough specimen like that may go for $500-$1000 around here while one in overall good shape and rust free probably in the $2000-$2500 range for a 4 cyl.

The trunk behind the engine, you pull the carpet back so you can see the black painted metal underneath, if there are rust holes is is a sign that the car is too rust in other important areas.

Car with any problem means low value to many.
Just you saying "Has a slight miss at idle." Can mean just iffy plugs/wire or early sign of very large problems.

A bit "hard to start" could be normal.
87 duke uses DIS and DIS module is a bit slow to wake up after shutdown a few hours.
Try to start a second or two, stop, try again. If normal, usually start second time and quickly.
But...
Long crank time could be iffy fuel pump relay. FP will run when backup switch in oil pressure sender get enough pressure to close FP switch. Carefully listen for FP sound when key is turned on. FP should turn on ~2 sec the off when key is on but you don't start the engine.

Look for fuel leaks on the TBI. The regulator diaphragm likes to leak a little when old.
See my Cave, 700 TBI and 700 TBI diagram part 70. If bad, need a rebuild kit.

If the car have been modified in any way... could be harder to sell. Many people do not want the headaches many mod cars have. Example: Many won't touch a lowered car because so many problems... many are major hack jobs that will break, often on the highway w/o warning.

thanx for the advice everybody. Yeah, its pretty rusty in the trunk. I didn't feel like crawling in the dirt to get a better look underneath. Car seems pretty original, other than aftermarket radio.

I can see why people swap to v8's. Not many parts for the duke. It would be nice if it was like half of a small block chevy.

Its funny, it doesn't have 4valves per cylinder, but theres no replacement for displacement. If it could take a stroker crank, it could easily be a 3liter. Unfortnatly the blocks don't seem very strong.

Its still for sale and I drive by it everyday. Get this, he is also selling a fwd caddy. Is that the v8 people like to use in some v8 swaps?

You must be young.

When I was your age, it was rather uncommon (possibly unheard of) for North American made cars to have more than two valves per cylinder.

nah, what I meant is, 4v isn't that big of deal. Most import 4v 4cylnders are less than 2L.

If you could build half of a sbc, a 3.3L 300hp 4 cylinder would be possible. nevermind, I'm just benchracing
