    I have a stock cradle from my 87 2.8L SE. I will have to take the motor and tranny out of it unless you want that too.
    I live in Erie, PA which is about 8 hours from Chicago.

    Not to put you on the back burner but if this other deal doesn't go through we can work something out, how much are you needing for it?

    Re: Looking for a cheap cradle for an 86 GT

    For just the cradle, Maybe $50. I could even throw in the lower rear control arms and anything else you might need. If your deal does not go through, let me know if you want me to strip it down or post some pics as it sits right now.
    It was on a drivable, working car. I am using a custom tube chassis with a longitudinally mounted V8 so nothing on my stock fiero will be used. Let me know what you want to do, I doubt any of my stuff will be going anywhere any time soon. Only what I have listed on eBay now will be sold.

    In the 87 fiero it was an automatic tranny. On my ford V8 is a TH-325-4L, which is a toronado style transaxle with the axles going under the oil pan.
