So maybe this is a bit of an unorthodox way to go about this, but I'm probably going to list my Fiero and I was wondering if there would be any interest in it, and the price range I should be expecting to get for it.

If there is interest I'll get of my butt and get better pictures. But here's what I've got.

It's an 86 Fiero GT fastback with the 5 spd trans, 88k miles, a beautiful time capsule like interior, a 2.8 bored over to 3.2 with a ton of performance goodies (Look at the attached picture for the goodies list).

I recently purchased the car impulsively, and now I'm thinking I could use the money for my house. Paint not good, interior looks great, headlights and everything work except the temp gauge which seems to be upside down? Other than that all interior light and evverything look and work great. Owner I just bought it from says he bought it from the original owner. I just bought new tires for it, sumito all seasons. Also not listed is that it has a true dual exhaust. I picked it up and drove it 3 hours home and it was a joy. I felt like I was in a time machine. I thought I'd feel out interest here before I put it up on ebay probably in a week or so. Or who knows, maybe someone will reach out to me before.

So what do you guys think?[/IMG][img]http://images.fierofor um.com/userimages/SpaceLion/90012617_2587866954831214_6288502003098189824_o.jpg[/img][img]http://images.fieroforum.com/userimages/SpaceLion/9051 8226_2587873088163934_4918017615852470272_o.jpg[/img][img]http://images.fieroforum.com/userimages/SpaceLion/90703802_2587871678164075_3998191403 808063488_o.jpg[/img]

IMHO it won't be long before you'll be sorry if you sell that car. There are lots of tips and help on the Forum here on how to do a decent paint job at manageable cost.

I appreciate the feedback and the offers fellas, but I think I should just let her go and put the money towards other more practical things. Ew, I wrote that sentence.

Oh yeah, sorry if I was bad at saying that ha. Yes, I was just saying that I plan to sell it. Likely very soon on ebay. But I thought I would post it here first because this is pretty much the epicenter of Fiero enthusiasts. I figured I might get an idea of how much to expect to sell it for and possibly some interest here where I don't need to go through the rigamarole of posting it on ebay. If you're interested, just let me know what you'd like more details about.

With no rust on the rear frame or trunk.....$2,500 to $4,000 based on today's market price.

Rust on the rear frame.......less than $1,000

Ha, well there isn't rust. But you know as well as I do that a fastback with the 5 spd under 100k miles is not less than 1,000 rust or no. At least i've never seen it. Maybe one with all kinds of mechanical problems.

Of course, I'll get some pictures. Michiganders always look underneath.

I'll go with the above price range. There is not a big market for Fieros that need work but its worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Remove the passenger side fender well liner. Look up at the frame rail. If its solid then the car is salable; if its rusted out then you have a parts car. That's the first place that a Fiero enthusiast would look.

Before getting excited about the 5-speed, that's the Isuzu 5-speed that was used on the 4-cylinder Fieros.

GM didn't think the Isuzu was durable enough for the V6 cars, so the V6 cars kept the 4-speed Muncie until the introduction of the 5-speed Getrag 282 for late 1986 models.

My opinion is that the Isuzu reduces the value of your V6 Fiero.

Actually, in 86 the 5 speed getrag was made standard for V6s, not the isuzu 5 speed of prior years.

I understand that GM didn't put Isuzu transmissions into V6 Fieros at the factory.

I'm saying that your particular Fiero has an Isuzu box. We can see it in the engine bay picture.
