1987 Pontiac Fiero
The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engine sports car that was built by
American automobile manufacturer General Motors from 1983 to 1988
for the 1984 to 1988 model years. The Fiero was designed by George
Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a sports car. It was the first
two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes and the first
mass-produced mid-engine sports car by an American manufacturer.
Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero design, such as
composite panels, were radical for their time.
When is the last time you saw an almost brand new 1987 model year
car from any manufacturer? Well, here in our Hallowed Halls of the
Classic Auto Mall we live by the mantra of "you never know what's
going to come through the door next", and we certainly weren't
disappointed to have this nearly new 2-seater roll into our halls.
For consignment, a time capsule in the form of a 1987 Pontiac
Fiero. This car was handed over to a technical school in 1987 and
remained there as a training model until being first registered in
Texas in 2015. During that time it accrued a mere 841 miles and is
now ready to bestow itself in your driveway ready for you to take
it for a spin!
This low, 2 door, mid-engine sports car basically uses three kinds
of plastic: reaction-injection-molded (RIM) polyurethane, a "soft"
plastic designed to take knocks on the front and rear bumpers;
reinforced-reaction-injection-molded (RRIM) polyurethane, a harder,
but still supple plastic used on the sides and doors of the Fiero.
This car's panels are bathed in white and is a respray which is
noted due to sanding marks and inclusions in the finish. There are
a few areas of chipping, but overall, the body panels are straight
with well minded gaps as this is a no hit car. Black accenting is
seen with a wrap around the total car trimming just below the belt
line and corresponding top to meet the mid-section of the front
grille. A black rocker trim in plastic, black glass surrounds, and
a black vent for the rear quarter helps gather up extra air for the
mid-engine. On the back, a body width flush mount egg crate style
tail and reverse light panel stretches from rear quarter panel to
rear quarter panel. 14-inch standard alloy wheels are on this
example, and these are wrapped in black wall rubber.
We swing the doors and see the 2 buckets covered in light gray
broadcloth for the inserts and heavily padded bolsters. A darker
gray vinyl makes up the lower seat sides and all appear as new. A
large wide center console is between the buckets and houses a large
storage compartment, the shift lever and dual ashtrays. Taking the
square and rectangle design motif to the max, the dash is made up
of a series of squares and rectangles in black with the instruments
inserted into a brushed silver bezel and other controls. A
surrounding dark gray dash front within which are these protruding
shapes. Carrying this idea to the edges where the A/C and heat
vents are also on their own vertical blocks on either side. Door
panels are a mix of gray plastic with black fields and gray
carpeted lower coverings. Very clean like new carpeting floods the
floors, and above is a fuzzy headliner which remains tight along
with a small overhead console for the courtesy lamps.
The 2.5-liter four cylinder "Iron Duke" engine is inserted in the
mid-section directly behind the seats. It is very clean, all
original and is fed via EFI. A TH125 3-speed automatic is within
this area as well and throws power to the rear wheels via a 2.84
4 wheel independent suspension, and 4 wheel power disc braking
attach themselves to a clean rust free unibody which has black rust
free rockers and floor pans. Pretty much a ground effects bottom
with simple attachments and smooth metal abounding. Also noted, no
runs or drips from the engine's bottom end...AMAZING!
I slipped into the firm but comfortable and supple broadcloth
seats, and turned the key for an immediate fire up. On the test
track it handles nicely and runs smoothly. Looking much like an
Italian sports car, it is really a gas saving commuter, so power is
lower as your sacrifice on this 4-cylinder version. All was working
in the functionality department, and thanks to a recent AC
servicing I remained icy cool all the while looking nice and
This one owner, 1st registered in 2015, amazingly low original mile
car has been completely gone over and ready to enjoy. All looking
nearly factory new and having help from the minds and skillsets of
the up-and-coming mechanics and autobody specialists over the
years. Pontiac may have built the excitement, but it's going to
take you to fully enjoy it!
