DESCRIPTION

This is a time capsule of a dream that was realized for a brief moment. Pontiac fans know that 1988 was the best and final year for the Fiero, and the Formula model with the V6 and sport suspension was the one and only time the original coupe lived up to its full potential. That's why this one is the right mix of classic style and a super-slick respray of the red paint. It makes for a rare and interesting car that's also offered for an affordable price.

The Fiero was born in a bit of confusion. Pontiac built an interesting mid-engine economy car, but the public saw the awesome angular styling and thought it was a true European sports rival. It wouldn't be until 1988, the final production year, that the original coupe body lived up to its performance impression. Pontiac made sure the public knew the new Formula model packed the sporty car they were always looking for by adding more aggressive features like the rear spoiler, Formula decals, and crosslace wheels borrowed from the GT version. It all looks fantastic today because the low odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage (averaging under 1,300 miles annually.) The less use means the body remains in crisp angular style. And the investment in a professional respray of the bold factory Bright Red means it all radiates in the sunshine.

Open the door and feel a full time warp back to 1988 in this near-perfect interior. Unlike the mid-engine European cars, the Fiero's layout does not sacrifice interior space. This is thanks to a very upright design that gives you a very airy feeling. But it does still give you the sporty style where all the controls are aligned with spirited driving in mind. The cloth seats are exceptionally comfortable, and the good care means you still feel the terrific bolstering. The same care can be seen on the other interior elements that coordinate in a full sea of tasteful gray, like the center console, carpets, door panels, and dash. This Fiero was built with plenty of comfort features such as power windows, a tilt wheel, cruise control, and the original AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, the factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.

The fuel-injected 2.8-liter V6 was the key upgrade in this car. It delivers the extra power for entertaining performance in the relatively lightweight Fiero. It certainly looks the part of a performance engine with a bright red intake manifold and matching valve covers. In a car this original, it shouldn't surprise you that this is believed to be the original powerplant. It hasn't been modified from factory specs, and instead, there has just been an investment in good fundamentals like the distributor, plugs, wires, and other servicing within the last couple of years. The desirable mid-engine layout works with the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes to deliver a nimble driving experience that lives up to this car's European look and name.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. This is the well-preserved and well-presented one-year classic. So something this unique and desirable won't stay around long when it's also this affordable. Call today!!!
