1987 Pontiac Fiero GT
From the Spanish word the “fierce one,” Fiero was introduced to the American market in 1984 as a gas saving alternative to the Corvette. A mid-engine 2 seated sports car that had all the initial problems sorted out by the last year of offering it to the public in 1988. The suspension had been upgraded, and the GT version came as a 6-cylinder 2.8 liter with a Muncie/Getrag 5-speed transmission, making the car finally what the designers wanted it to be, a somewhat powerful, good handling mid engined car, that got good gas mileage.
On consignment a truly original 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT. Odometer shows as 117,296 consigner stated original miles. Only new hoses have been changed since the cars birth, and everything is in working condition. A garage kept, diligently maintained, fairly clean and purchased from a Fiero collector, this car is an original.
A clean car with good gaps, straight panels, and nice paint. This GT was the first year for the fastback design and was only available on the GT model. In front the new non-aero nose has lost the black bumper pads and has a smoother color coordinated look. For the rear, a spoiler at the back end to the fastback posts that stretches the width of the car. Diamond spoke wheels are all around, and tires appear almost new.
A textured gray on gray velour wraps the 2 bucket seats in the passenger compartment, and on the entry side of the driver's seat, wear through can be seen as well as a missing plastic cover for the seat back reclining mechanism A gray/light gray carpet, and gray dash and console, as well as gray door panels finish off the interior nicely and add a nice contrast to the exterior red. A volt meter, and an oil pressure gauge sit atop the standard climate control center dash area. A switch for stereo boost, as well as interior lighting, and a “formula” option 120MPH speedometer make up the instrumentation cluster behind the leather wrapped Fiero steering wheel. All surfaces, with the exception of the driver's seat, are in good condition, and show slight wear. Power windows, power steering, power brakes and power mirrors have been installed as options on this vehicle.
A 2.8 Liter 6-cylinder with a 5-speed Muncie/Getrag manual transmission attached provides 135 HP and can push this car down the road very quickly.
Slight surface rust and some scratching due to low clearance scraping are seen, otherwise the underside is unremarkable. Disc brakes are seen on all 4 corners.
A consigner owned for 8 years car, purchased from a collector, this car presents as overall good condition. A few areas of patina, and some slight issues with the driver's seat, an overall really nice example.
