1986 Fiero GT, 2.8L daily driver. Good condition with 50,000+ miles. This has been a labor of love, but alas all great things must come to an end - selling due to planned family expansion in the near future and need for additional space. Car runs and drives great. Known history: It is a Florida car, originally red in color. I bought it in 2009. Previously, it had sat for about 15-18 years covered in previous owner’s yard. To bring it up to daily driver status, I replaced the water pump, fuel injectors, coil, spark plug wires, thermostat, cooling system hoses, heater coil, distributor (cap and rotor also), tires, fuel pump, oxygen sensor, spark plugs, belts, and fuel level sending unit. It also had an exhaust leak due to the dreaded rusted manifold bolt syndrome. Removed rusted out manifold studs and replaced with stainless steel ones, along with new exhaust and head gaskets (had to remove head to get to studs). Tachometer was also reading high (common problem)-fixed by breaking the bad circuit and soldering in a rheostat per advice on Pennock’s Fiero Forum. Currently AC does not work (broke 2 belts, and did not replace again). Cruise control was not functional, so removed from engine compartment. Swapped into the car a 4T60 4 speed automatic transmission from a 1991 Buick Regal having approximately 65K miles on it. Transmission mounts were purchased new from West Coast Fieros. Transmission fluid, modulator valve, and filter changed at the time. Shifts through all gears smoothly and tachometer indicates ~2300 RPM when driving 70 mph. Definitely a great upgrade from the 3-speed automatic for improving the drivability over long travel distances. Also upgraded headlight wiring harness and motors to 1987 models, so they all work well. Dash is cracked in several places, so I covered it with a dash cover from the Fiero Store. Tailight also has the usual delamination and cracking, but all lights work and there is no water in them. Seat upholstery and carpets are in good condition considering the age. Glovebox door (between seats) and gauge housing are warped as typical. Since I bought it, the exterior has never been fewer than four different colors. To appease my wife, I painted it green and black in the driveway. The urethane paint quietened the complaints and serves a great protective role, but has orange peel uniformly throughout giving it a satin look from a distance. This might be color sanded out, or I can include the remaining black and green urethane paint for a repaint job. Just replaced the catalytic converter. Overall the car is great as a daily driver, or for someone that would like to spend a little more effort and cash to make it a real show piece (unfortunately I have over-spent already and need another seat). Asking price reflects less than half of the total amount spent to bring it up to daily driver status. Below are a few more highlights. Contact Chris with any questions by phone (772-801-1045) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Car is located in Fort Pierce, FL. Thanks for looking!
