For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/kzqs38j The first and only mid-engine volume car America 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, Poncho's pint-size coupe had become a serious performance machine. Sold through Key Pontiac of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, this all-original survivor 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 27 year old veteran can get. And its 1987-exclusive Bright Blue Metallic paint still displays a fantastic shine! 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 a 135 horsepower and 165 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. The 1987 GT features sharp suspension tuning that can be directly attributed to Pontiac's in-house racing program. At the center of that suspension, a solid Hydra-Matic 3-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. And power flows through 2-tone 'snowflake' wheels that spin original 205/60R15 Goodyear Eagle GTs in front of original 215/60R15 Goodyear Eagle GTs. This low-slung classic's sporty interior features bright cloth buckets mounted inside a wraparound cockpit design that makes its occupants feel buttoned down and secure. Between those seats, a wide console hangs a large storage bin behind a traditional GM shifter and controls for power windows and power mirrors. That console flows into a plateaued dash which anchors an original radio below a full array of clear instrumentation. And in front of the driver, a leather-wrapped and ÐîìFiero GTÐîì branded steering wheel keeps everything in line. GM only produced 4,458 Bright Blue Fieros, making clean survivors as exclusive as they are cool.
