It was tough being a General Motors fan in the 1980s. The company had relegated most of its models to bland copycats of compromised, committee-driven designs which, for the most part, suffered terrible quality problems. But every once in a while, the true car guys broke free of the massive corporate bureaucracy and belted one straight out of the park! Featuring a mid-engine sports car layout which capped excellent driving dynamics with a lightweight composite body, the Pontiac Fiero was one such homerun. Dressed in striking Light Gold Metallic over Light Saddle aesthetics, this clean GT might just be one of the coolest Fieros on the planet. And, if you’re looking for an eccentric classic that’ll transport you right back to the days when performance was more than just horsepower, it’s a solid yet affordable collectible!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Thus far the only mid-engine volume car America has ever produced, the Fiero started out as a roster of existing GM hardware that was headlined by sleek, unique sheetmetal. Sales took off in 1984 and, by the time their hotted up GT model rolled out of the factory, Pontiac’s pint-size coupe had become a serious performance machine. Protected and pampered for over 30 years, this lovingly restored GT is a fine example of the days when global manufacturers weren’t afraid to take a risk. Everything from the car’s clean glass to its chip-free running boards is about as close to perfect as a decades-old veteran can get. And its carefully re-sprayed Light Gold Metallic pigment still displays fantastic fleck!

Many enthusiasts believe in the theory that GM kills a model just as soon as they perfect it. And, judging by the looks of this retro-chic cruiser, we’d have to agree. At the front of the car, a chip-free ‘aero’ nose anchors bright turn signals at the sides of a gaping grille and ornate Fiero header emblem. Behind that nose, “PONTIAC” branded headlights lead the eye to clean, “GT” branded glass that’s flanked by small, Satin Black mirrors. At the sides of those headlights, black trim spears hang thin marker lamps and flip-up door handles above a small quarter vent. And at the back of the car, a new-for-1986 fastback highlights a prominent deck spoiler, sleek, “PONTIAC GT” branded tail lights and a sculpted bumper that bends around stainless exhaust tips.

ENGINE

Models like the Fiero were never about brute power. GM wanted to produce a balanced, economical platform which was inexpensive and provided an excellent driving experience. Accordingly, all Fieros were originally equipped with Pontiac’s economical 2.5 liter ‘Iron Duke’ 4-cylinder. However, the number one complaint of early adopters was the car’s lack of power. So, in 1985, when the GT model was introduced, a more powerful 2.8 liter V6 was sourced from Chevrolet and tuned by Pontiac to create 140 horsepower and 170 lb./ft. of curve-carving torque. The 2.8 liter was one of the first transversely mounted V6s to utilize multi-port fuel injection. And the new mill perfectly suited the Fiero which, unlike most exotic sports cars, provided drivers with exciting performance that wasn’t overbearing or dangerous. All the hard parts in this coupe’s clean engine bay, from the red, “Fiero” branded intake and Holley throttle body to the red valve covers and dent-free oil pan, appear to be factory original. And, as expected, tags, markings and stamps are just where they should be.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

The 1986 GT features sharp suspension tuning that can be directly attributed to Pontiac’s in-house racing program. At the center of that suspension, a reliable Muncie 4-speed provides a series of crisp shifts. At the corners of the car, power disc brakes, borrowed from Chevy’s stalwart Chevette, provide concise, drama-free stops. Although there were whispers of optional power steering, a tried-and-true manual rack was retained. Exhaust exits through a single-into-dual system that’s capped with quad stainless tips. And power flows through 2-tone ‘snowflake’ wheels that spin 205/60R15 Sumitomo HTRs in front of 215/60R15 Sumitomo HTRs.

INTERIOR

This low-slung classic’s sporty Light Saddle interior features bright cloth buckets mounted inside a wraparound cockpit design that makes its occupants feel buttoned down and secure. As with any cloth surface, wear and seam tears would normally be a primary concern, but the soft seats in this Pontiac display no major splits or thin spots. Between those seats, a wide console hangs a large storage bin behind a traditional GM shifter and controls for factory power windows. That console flows in to a plateaued dash, which anchors an original radio below a full array of clear instrumentation. At the sides of that dash, crack-free door panels look great and function well. Below those panels, clean carpet is protected by tough, color-keyed mats. In front of the driver, a leather-wrapped Fiero GT steering wheel laps a tilting column. And at the front of the cockpit, a small storage bin stows a beefy jack and Space Saver spare tire.
