Question is, were 87 Coupes available with the V6?

http://www.lespac.com/d-veh...87-v6-LPCaZZ21471591

Because if that's a 2.8L Getrag 5-speed in a lightweight stripper with few options, and only 65 000 km, for only $800 asking, I'm very tempted...

Nope, 87 coupe only had a 2.5l.... you could get an 87 SE with a V6.

I was always under the impression that the 2.8 was an upgrade option available with base body style if one chose it. I've seen a number of bumper pad fieros with the 2.8s over the years. Maybe I'm wrong though. The vin should answer the question.

You're correct on the '85 and '86 bumper pad. Those cars you could acquire with a V6. For '87, that option came solely on the GTs and the aero SEs with the V6 (some aero SEs could be acquired with the L4).

The spoiler also looks to be added, so likely the drivetrain and spoiler were swapped. Throw some GT lace wheels on it and you'd have a nice Formula clone (althought it'd be the wrong year...).

Just get the VIN and run through the VIN decoder here. This will tell you what it came with stock.

All Fieros were coupes IE 2 doors and no rear seats Some were notchbacks and some were fastbacks. But all were coupes.

Yeah, but in "Fiero lingo" "Coupe" means the base body.

If I get the half-decent summer job that I want confirmed, then I just might take a look at this car, even if it's swapped... Thanks guys.
