Hi!
I am a new member here, though I've been on & around the forum for years.
The postings are rather few & far between lately, so I figured I'd post here, as this complete '85 might end up in a crusher! Ouch
 
I have a complete '85 Fiero GT (2.8L 4spd-Manual) that I have owned since it was a two year old.
She's been sitting now for 15 years and will require a complete go-through.
The body is faded and needs some TLC, but everything else is in good shape, simply dormant for all those years.
I have always thought about restoring, but have absolutely no time for her.
 
As a result, I would like to offer the car to anyone in the club.
 
The car is currently in North Burnaby - drive-bys are welcome!
 
All I'd ask is respect for the car, I'd kind hate to see it ripped to pieces as it is suitable as a project car.
It would be nice to come to a club meeting someday and see it running again.
A reasonable offer takes her!
 
please message me if you are interested Big smile
 
chrz,
paul

    If it gets to the point, that you are truly thinking about sending it to the scrapper, I can't offer much money, as we have our finances tied up in the house we just bought my personal Fiero build.  However what I can offer is the car will be resurrected carefully by a die hard Fiero nut with 20 years experience working on Fiero's. (Me if you haven't guessed)  I have a huge soft spot for 85GT's as my first Fiero was an 85GT when I was 17.  I daily drove that car until I was 35.  When I parted out the chassis and rebuilt the car onto a newer 87GT Chassis.

             From the looks of the car, it would not take much to get it to move under its own power.  Then once I have it here, I can strip it down, do the brakes cooling system and fluids/filters.   I have a lot of spare parts that are coming off of my 87GT due to the required upgrades for the LS V8.  

                  You said the car is a 5spd, are you sure of that?  Stock 85GT's had a 4spd standard or an Automatic.   In either case I would be replacing the 4spd with a 5spd.     If I were to later sell it, I would make sure it went to a loving home, and not someone that would neglect it.

For some reason I thought that I had put a 5-Speed in her, as I had replaced the transmission years previous.

I have ( finally ) gone and re-looked 4-Speed!

my bad Shocked



I don't think it would take much to get her to run; perhaps a few days with some diesel shot into the cylinders, and some loving hand cranking.

thanks for your interest Clap
I'll message you, Captain!
