No, it's pretty "rare", and by that I mean you almost never see one, demand isn't really high for it anymore because of the F40/F23 in recent times. His facts are correct from what I could tell. The price is kinda steep, but honestly, where are you going to actually find another MY8? They are (were?) in demand for quite some time by Fiero owners AND other FWD GM cars of the time period, because the Fiero MY8 is the ONLY 4-speed with that .73 4th.

I got an MY8 2 years ago by buying the whole car and parting the rest out. I changed direction and sold it (for a good amount), but I'm sure that's the only MY8 I'll see like that again.

If he gets $1000 for it then mine is coming out immediately.

I found 10+ 1984 4 speeds showing on Car-Parts.com within 300 miles of me, surely at least one of those is a MY8 and non are over $500.,

I honestly doubt any of those are MY8s..only 7100 or so were made 30+ years ago. I have seen a low milage MY8 sell for $750 before.

I would bet none of them have the MY8.

Like has been mentioned it was a fairly rare item to come across. There were around 134,000 1984 Fieros made with roughly 7,100 of them coming in with a MY8, and with the high demand of that particular transmission some years ago most of the confirmed MY8 cars were snatched up by Fiero enthusiasts on the used market pretty quick and hacked up or done with whatever. Really you have to have been around the active community about 15-20 years ago to understand why this transmission was so sought after before the more modern swap options were pushed for Fieros.

That was the assumption I came to. There was more to the story than I knew at the time, which as now been confirmed. With the damage, what would be the value of this?

I worked it out with the seller and got it for $700 as we're keeping the car fairly original with emphasis on MPG so this should pair nicely.

As tempting as that is, we'd prefer to keep the car as close to original as possible.

If its an 84 than their is not much point in doing so... the transmission is pretty much worth more than the car is in some cases.

So what is this transmission really worth? When I got laid off of work, I sold mine for $300 in 2005 with all of the shifter, cables pedals, axles, transmission, etc..... including shipping. So I basically got $200 for the transmission and $100 to ship. Boy I wish I could have kept it!
