First I want to apologize for starting this thread a little bit early, I just haven't had the time put aside to pull out the Fiero from the place I have it parked, I will try to take a little time in the next few days to post updated pictures... I lost my place to work on my Fiero over a year ago and tired of seeing it parked in the weather, there is still several things that need done/redone on it, so buyer must be aware that you may have to drop the cradle to fix said issues.

1986 Fiero GT 3800sc, 4spd muncie - power windows, power door locks, sunroof, cloth seats

Build thread: //www.fiero.nl/forum/F...2/HTML/124801-2.html pictures on 2nd page

-Body currently has just over 100k on it. There is no noted structural rust, tires have less than 10k, the paint is not great but also not terrible (lots of chips and scratches and some paint cracks on the bumper), quarter windows are cracked, taillights are de-laminating and the bumper is.

-Interior is in good shape, seats / covers are like brand new, dash is good besides a couple small cracks near the speakers and a chip at the vent, headliner needs recovered. Lighted HU mount from maptech, short shifter.

-Engine was pulled from a riviera with almost the exact same miles as the car (100K). Engine has a VS cam, GenV supercharger with MPS, Northstar throttle body, 105# crow cam springs, lucas 42# injectors, West coast fiero stainless headers to 3" stainless stock route exhaust to flowtech muffler in stock location, Aeromotive fuel rails and regulator, new water pump, new gaskets and seals, all sensors attached to engine are new, all pulleys are new. Spec 3+ clutch.


Problems (in order of severity)...

-Alternator bracket snapped, breaking the bolt off in the head, in a roadside effort to fix it I broke a bolt extractor in the hole, then drilled that out and broke into the coolant passage, it is currently sealed with jb weld / quicksteel and alternator mount currently rigged.
-I believe the flywheel to be balanced improperly
-Fuel lines need redone, they are currently rigged.
-Car runs strong but can be rough at times, I believe it is a fueling issue because the fuel pressure doesn't hold, but this could also be anything from an injector to tune or something in the valvetrain.
-needs parking brake cables.
-There seems to be some play in either the transmission or mounts (bucking/jerking)
-Small exhaust leak, most likely one of the marman clamps or flex.
-Passenger headlight sticks sometimes (rebuild motor? has 87/88 headlights)

Really great car for someone with a garage to put back into good order quickly with minimal work and hunting down parts versus swapping from scratch, or it could be a track car as-is..

Currently on Ebay, no reserve... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pon...ba&item=191599345850

Want to thank the community here for being so helpful over the past 4 years of my Fiero ownership... Maybe I will one day own another one.

I love that polished gen v blower. Looks soo much better than my stock gen v.

Good luck with your sale. Sounds like a nice ride.

Thanks, but it should be noted that like I said in the listing the car has sat outside for a year... There will be corrosion on even the polished engine parts, but of course easily polished back to that finish.

Is the price a little too high? Don't be afraid to make an offer.

I didn't see a price listed but to answer your question, yes, the price is too high. It always will be. I've prolly had over 4K views of my car and have only shown it three times. Seems Fiero buyers only want dirt cheap or just your parts. It's frustrating for sure. Good luck.

New price, $4000... Really want it gone and would rather it go to a member than elsewhere.

read through your build thread and awesome progress with the build! did you ever convert it from manual to auto? you mentioned flywheel may need rebalanced but i wasnt certain. if i had 4k i'd take it in a heartbeat. been scouting on this forum looking for a project fiero with the 3800 swap to continue working on as they're more affordable than a full completed one. where in MD are you? im in SE PA.

If it sells to a forum member here I will include an F23 transmission and any extra parts I can find.

NICE! Good to know. Although I doubt I'll actually win it. The bids are quickly creeping up to my limit. I don't think I'll be high bidder for much longer. It looks like a lot of effort and care went into the car so either way I hope it goes to someone who will get it running 100% and do it right.
