I've got a decent 86 GT that I purchased to do the notchie with GT taillight conversion with, but probably will never have the time and the car will end up sitting until it's not worth having.

The car has minor front end damage, but is a garage kept 87 with low mileage. Tail Lights are in good shape. Sail windows are in good shape. Trunk seal has normal tear in it. No rust on the car aside from normal rust on the mounts for the water lines under the car. The car is dirty from sitting.

Car runs, has the 14" rims. Interior is grey, sunroof and spoiler are all in good shape. Power windows, locks and mirrors.

The car could probably be easily repaired and driven, or the body swapped onto a non wrecked Fiero. Clear title on car.

Without pictures, because I'm not where I can get photos at the moment, what price range are we talking? I don't have time to part it out, so that's not an option for me.

Valuing a parts car is always a tricky proposition because the sum of the parts always exceeds the value of the whole car. Generally speaking, I would never pay more than $500 for a wrecked parts car. However, with fastback taillights in high demand I would pay a bit more for a car with nice ones.

Must agree that valuing a parts car is difficult but it sounds as though you might have something that runs. If it does then its worth more. If its just sold for parts then I would say the up to $500 price is on the money. If the car frame is sound and runs then you might be in the $1k + market. Unfortunately the demand for 85-87 Fiero GT's is light and the prices reflect this
