    If you plan to change the suspension then any year will do. If possible stay away from the 84's. Not that they are bad, the wiring is different for that year and the engine conversions will be more difficult. I would recommend that you find one with the options you want such as AC, PW, standard or automatic etc.. less hassles then trying to convert these over later.

    The 88s would be a waste if you are going to change the suspension. My preference would be a running 87. I know that it does not sound right, but buying a running and driving car for $2k is a lot cheaper than a $500 pull from a field. My last $500 Fiero ended up costing me four grand to get on the road again.

    yes they should fit a v8, the wiring is all you would need to sort out
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    HI all,

    + 1 on the 87 with the options you want to have.... Though 85-87 would be prefered... Whatcha planin on building? If it is a custom fiero the 85's are suppose to have speakers in the seat, rather then in the B-Pillars...
    Me, I sell engines, the cars are free.&nbsp; I need something to crate the engines in.... Enzo Ferrari......<br />Today they are called garage&#039;s, yesterday, they were stable&#039;s.&nbsp; Eric Jacobsen...
