Default 1985 Pontiac Fiero - needs some work - NOW SOLD

I've got a running 1985 Pontiac Fiero with a 4-cylinder and 5-speed manual. It runs ok, but could probably use a tune up. The car needs new brake lines and it has a leaky oil drain plug. The interior is really nice and it has a lot of extra parts like fascias, an oil pan, and extra GT bucket seats. I have no use for the car and would like to get rid of it. 121,796 miles.

Needs new brake lines
It needs a battery, but starts with a jump.
Oil leak appears to just be the plug, but I can't say for sure.

SOLD - I need this gone by Friday night or it goes to scrap

Pics down the page.

It does not run or drive ok right now. It needs brake line and the new oil pan installed. Also, the battery is dead so it isn't going to start right up. I don't think you want this car.

You say it runs ok. What do u mean by that? Any noises when started up? Clinks, knocks ect. Possibly might be interested if you say the only thing wrong is break lines, and a new battery.

The car does not run ok. It isn't holding oil right now, so it isn't running. When it had oil, it sounded fine. I am not promising anything. It's an $800 car. If you expect it to be perfect and ready to drive cross country, you are an idiot.

If the oil plug is the problem, it's an easy fix. If not, I have a new oil pan that comes with the car.

Is it the oil pan or plug? You might want to change your original post to reflect the information you are now giving. I.E. Not Running.

BTW, I got a car for free, put $26 into it and I could/would drive it cross country. So it cannot be assumed a cheap car is not reliable.

The car WILL start and run, I just don't turn it on since it leaks oil. I firmly believe the problem is the plug, not the pan.

Come look at the car if you are interested, if you aren't interested then stay out of my thread. I'm sick of GL people who offer nothing but lowball offers and kick tires. I am not lying about the condition of the car. Several people have come to look at it and none of them have said I mis-represented the car.

If there is no interest in this by next weekend, I'll probably scrap it.

If I had time to part it out, I would have already done that.
