Bill,I've been looking around the internet for a few months, but there really aren't many mid-80's Sunbirds available out there. Lots of Firebirds, Fieros and such, but not Sunbirds, especially GT's. Am I looking in the wrong places?
Investigated that one a while ago. The car has lots of faults and the seller wasn't responsive to my questions. I moved on.$3300?

Can you post a photo of yours? Reminds me of the one I owned years ago.Bill,
Just my edjukatid guess, sunbirds are not really considered a 'hot" car, nor even a cool car. Even though, when compared to the much hotter car the Firebird, they got the name wrong- the temperature of the sun in sunbird is way hotter than the temperature of fire in firebird.
Anyway, thats why. When the GT turbos quit they junked them. Also, when the AT's quit on the non turbo GT's they also junked them. Mine is a MT, and they last forever.
Mine is a 1987 non turbo, GT. Only 7% of all GT's were non turbos. Yes, not as cool, but mine is still around. Low maintenence, goes along with low performance. But who cares about performance - at least mine is still running, at 210,000 miles, orig clutch, not a drop of oil consumption, and working ac. And with cops everywhere, who needs to "perform"?? LOL
Geez, Bill, now you got me wanting to wash and hand wax my car to show it off!! Bad Bill!! Sure, I can do that for you!! But with all the rain down here I am backed up with a bit of chores, so it may take a week or so. If thats OK!!Can you post a photo of yours? Reminds me of the one I owned years ago.
If you ever plan to part with the wheel opening flares and they are in good shape, please let me know.... as I removed the tacky fender trim pieces from factory- I now its not original without those plastic pieces, but geez, they were doing a number on the paint where the plastic ridge rubes against the car's finish. I kept them though, in the attic...
OK, Bill. We are a small group, so it wont be hard to remember........If you ever plan to part with the wheel opening flares and they are in good shape, please let me know.
I am between Sunbirds right now, but actively looking for a '86 or '87 Convertible. One of the ones in an above posting is actually sounding promising. My old '87 Sunbird GT Hatchback broke my heart when I saw that the new owner had totaled it just weeks after buying it from me. I've been wanting another ever since.OK, Bill. We are a small group, so it wont be hard to remember........
Waiting for the heavy rain to stop, so I can take that picture for you.......
Bill, just thought- I dont know what kind of car you have.
