It's pretty.
But my "I don't want to sell it" price is only about half that. $12K.

That may be more like "I am looking for a fool!" price. I would sell my last MERA project (with a functional fuel injected 383) for that price (provided I do not have to do anything else on it).

But it has 2 sets of "original keys"
That has to be worth a few thousand.
They might be onto something though.
It is in good company.
When someone goes in to buy a 250000 Lambo or Ferrari.
Buying a 22000 "exotic" for his kid isn`t too expensive.

Your I Don't Want to Sell it Price?

Do you mean intentionally pricing the car so high that it won't sell? Like the saying goes, everyone has a price. For example, I have no plans to sell my Fiero anytime soon. But if someone threw enough money at me, that would change my mind.

That is a very nice Fiero, but people willing to spend 23K on a Fiero are probably not looking for a low mile/great condition 1985 model.

This. I could see an 88 GT in the mileage/condition going for 23k, but an 85 GT? Not a chance.

Didn't a brand new barnyard find 88 GT go for 24k in the past couple years? Or is my memory already starting to fail?

Seems to be a common theme among Fiero owners though. Check out this "just needs a little work" 180k mile 87 Fiero GT:

Yeah, that's what I meant. Either they are high, or they don't want to sell it Or, just looking for the sucker.

I wouldn't take less than $30k for mine, and I think the buyer would STILL be getting a deal with what I have done to it.

Ferrari/Diablo replica? Those are the only Fieros catching over 30k these days. Even then, with the lack of available parts for repair(mainly glass), even those prices are falling.

Only Fieros I have seen catch over 20k were highly desirable models with <1k miles.

I have seen a couple of Meras that sold for more than $20k but they are far and few between. Most of mine have had a lot of work done and would not be for sale at less than $25k+.

This pristine 1985 Fiero GT was listed for sale by the son of the elderly original Owner on eBay in 2011 and I was the winning bidder at $7,000 USD. The listing stated it had cruise control, but after examining the photo's I noticed it did not have cruise control so the Owner agreed to reduce the price to $6,500 USD. In my discussions with the son he noted his father never trusted Dealerships and never had the recall work done to the Fiero. When looking at the photo's it was obvious because it still had the old design rubber air intake boot.

The Fiero also didn't have power mirrors and the floor mats that came with it were original red floor mats from a 1984 Fiero Indy which are quite rare to find. The Owner never removed the original window sticker and rarely drove the Fiero, it was (and still is) in mint condition. We ended up mutually agreeing to cancel the purchase for these reasons. I often regret not completing the purchase, but my major concern was it not having the recall work done and I doubt General Motors would perform the recall 26 years later.

The Fiero was listed again on eBay and I think it ended up selling for $6,800. Whoever won the auction sold the red Indy floor mats and installed aftermarket grey mats. The Fiero is now for sale by a Dealership trying to make a substantial profit. Good luck to them.

The recall was never done on mine - I think it makes it more valuable cause the dealers did such hack jobs with the recalls.

Personally, my favorite body style is he aero/notchback like the 85 GT. But I really like the center gauge pod that started in 86.

So I waited and bought an 86 SE V6 with 9970 miles. All rubber was good, including the original tires and dew wipes. I paid $7500, which I think was reasonable in 2017, though not a killer deal. The dealer was originally looking for 10k before dropping the price to 9k. That's when I got it for 7500. No doubt that the fastbacks are more saught after, especially 88s.

Personally, I would NOT hesitate paying $10k for the 85 GT with 1500 miles in 2017. But, I would do so knowing it would need $2k in freshening before I would trust it as a weekend driver - it will need all fluids, filters, tires that aren't 32 years old, a complete tune-up (including ICM, Pick-up coil, etc, depending on how risk averse you are), and likely e-brake cables. Chances are, the fuel sender has gummed up from sitting and the oil pan gasket might need attention. Headliner might need attention, too, as they tend to deteriorate over time.

I learned from my 86 that time hurts gaskets/fluids/electronics even when not driven. Can't expect it is "showroom" even if stored in climate control. But, a little lovin' will get her up to shape quickly vice high mileage cars that tend to have many more surprises.

The recall was done on my 87 GT in October 1990. Outside removing the water diverter, what else was done? The letter I have for the recall only says " will have changes made in their underhood environment" .. " have a manifold deflector installed" (?)

Check out my build thread, but the cliff notes are Arraut slalom/88 cradle swap, 3800SC/F23 drivetrain, custom interior, and an overall great condition build. I also never said I expected someone to actually PAY me 30k for it, just that it would take that much to get me to un-ass my car after all the work and money I put into it.

I wonder if General Motors would perform the recall work at no cost 26 years later?

Doubtful as the parts are no longer readily available. The recall is useless on a low mileage car anyway....it's not like it will ever be heavily driven. But even if it were, nothing catastrophic would happen. Honestly, I wouldn't pass up a Fiero that did not have the recall work done. In fact, I picked up an '88 GT a month or so ago that never had the recall work done. It has 82K miles on it and runs like a champ.....no exhaust leaks or other concerns.
