1985 Pontiac Fiero SE
1985 Pontiac Fiero SE
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.
For consignment, a time capsule in the form of a 1985 Pontiac Fiero. This car was purchased new at Cochran Pontiac in Monroeville, PA and used sparingly for the first 5 years. Then it was put away for 29 years! According to the still on 1990 inspection sticker, at that time it had 11,589 miles. Now showing 12,391 original miles and 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 the original paint and body panels 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 this Fiero is optioned with a luggage rack, and it sports a sunroof. 14-inch standard alloy wheels are on this example and these are wrapped in black wall rubber.
Designated an SE model aka 2M4 which translates to 2-seater, mid 4-cylinder engine, we swing the doors and see the 2 buckets covered in light gray broadcloth for the inserts and dark gray for the bolsters. These also show inset speakers in the headrests and are like new and very clean. A large wide center console is between the buckets and houses a large storage compartment, the shift lever and window toggles. 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 inserted instruments and other controls. A surrounding light 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 two tone light gray with black fields and a light gray storage pouch. Very clean like new carpeting floods the floors, and above is a fuzzy headliner which has a few wrinkles and the sunroof.
The 2.5-liter four cylinder “Iron Duke” engine is inserted in the mid section directly behind the seats. It is very clean and 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 3.18 final drive.
4 wheel independent suspension, and 4 wheel 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 due to the long storage period, I noticed the radio only works on scan mode.
This one owner, amazingly low original mile car has been completely gone over and ready to enjoy. Consigner states seats had covers and were just taken off so they have been barely sat in, and why they look so factory.
