Newer Tires and Brakes, Runs Great. Things I still need to fix: drivers door lock, horn, alt belt (have to rev it to grab )
I'd appreciate any constructive feedback on wether this is a reasonable price, or whether I'm under or over, it defintely gets looks, looks and runs great.

Unfortunately, I don't believe you will sell it at anywhere near that price. I owned a car, very similar, for 81000 miles. Original white paint, new stainless brake lines and some other upgrades. I sold for $2500, and that was a struggle to find that price. Truth be told - true "fiero" people know that these cars are cheap to get into - cheap to repair - and unfortunately cheap to get out of. If the paint is as clean as it seems, and the seats, carpet, and dash corners are clean with no rips, and the trunk still looks new, you *might* get 3K - but I bet you will be around $2500.

I bought my current Fiero - 86 GT, original red, rusted oil pan, but otherwise runs and drives great, with only 61K on the clock for $1200. Sorry man - Ive had 8 Fieros, never spent much to get them - and never got much selling - but always fun little cars. Good luck with your sale.

Ok, Thanks for the feedback. Well that might be a good reason to keep it. Yeah, the interior looks good, except when my son used it to a gig and messed up the dash near the passenger side vent. Problem is, I'm running out of room. If I could only get it in the attic.

I don't consider myself an expert on Fiero prices, but I did just pay for a panel-off paint job and recently bought a spare set of GT tail lights. Between those two things alone, I shelled out more than your $5500 price.

So, if the tail lights are free of serious delam and the paint job is good (as it appears to be) and the rest of it is pretty clean, I don't see any reason that the car isn't worth $5500.

I am certainly biased, but I think clean, well-maintained Fieros are a pleasure to drive and I'm surprised at how little they tend sell for. I am, however, encouraged by the completed eBay sales I just perused- a whole bunch didn't meet reserve and so didn't sell- good for the owners for helping keep prices up.

Remember, you don't need a plurality of people to believe that your car is worth the number for which you want to sell it...just one interested buyer.

Thanks lorennerol, That's what I was thinking too. I have a lot of respect for PFF and it's users and figured my absolute low-end ball park figure would come from here, but I've recently looked at the $5-6k cars on the used car lots and I truly believe my GT is a better deal than most of them -plus much more fun to drive (except in the winter).

Just fixed the horn. I had the pin in backwards. Mark another one up to this forum. Found a post with a pic and it was clear as day. I had replaced the cover on the steering wheel (took it off).

Manual or auto?
Most likely $2.5K to just under $5K. But I'm in Georgia, well outside your Craigslist area.
The paint looks great.
Any shots of the inside?
