EXTREMELY RARE, T-TOP, 5-SPEED, HIGHLY OPTIONED 1988 PONTIAC FIERO GT WITH UNDER 19,900 MILES AND A PROVEN SHOW WINNER WITH ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER AND IN AMAZING CONDITION!!
1 OF 614 FACTORY T-TOP FIERO GT’S
THIS ’88 FIERO GT IS ONE OF THREE FUTURE COLLECTIBLE PONTIAC CLASSICS WE CURRENTLY HAVE!
Regardless of whether you are an avid Fiero enthusiast, owned a Fiero back in the day, or knew someone who owned one, it is hard to argue that the 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT is going to be one of the iconic Pontiac Collectible cars as years go by. Among other things, the Fiero was the first 2 seater Pontiac since the 1938 coupes. We all know Pontiac “used” to build excitement and there are sure to be many exciting years to come for owners of low mileage, top quality Fiero GT’s. This is the 5th Fiero GT I have owned and it is truly in amazing condition and has a rare list of options that any car collector can appreciate. I recently purchased this awesome 5-speed, T-Top, GT from the second owner. He bought it in 2006 from the original owner. He was a true Fiero enthusiast and enjoyed showing it at the Regional Fierorama Shows where it consistently won Best in Class each time it was shown. He decided he had his fun with this great Fiero and it was time to pass it along to the next lucky owner…maybe you!! There is quite a strong following for Fieros now and you will find many Fiero Clubs all over the country. It is not unusual to see a few Fieros at your local car shows and cruise-ins and this one would fit in anywhere and will probably bring home a few trophies if that is what you enjoy. At the same time, you can jump in this mid-engine sports car and drive the heck out of it while knowing you have one of the future collectibles that surely be going up in value.
This Fiero is truly in near flawless original condition!! I will do my best to honestly describe this future classic collectible and provide as many pics as possible as well as a video so you can see the true condition and quality of this car and hear it running. Sit back and enjoy!!
This is one of those rare opportunities to buy a collectible sports car that was truly pampered but always well maintained and needs nothing. The body is in fantastic condition!! Paint shines beautifully. Upon close inspection you will find a few tiny rock chips that have been touched up. There are also a few small marks in the drivers side sail panel glass that are on the inside. It looks like someone may have done some work to the speaker that is located in that spot on the interior and it may have caused these marks. You can find replacements for this if you desire perfection. The second owner had the front bumper painted due to a number of bug marks and chips and it looks great. I point these minor items out to let you know it is not absolutely perfect but it is extremely original and is a proven show winner. All of the original VIN stickers are present on the body panels. Pop-up Headlights function perfectly. The body style on the Fiero is really quite sleek and this red beauty is in amazing condition. Take a look around the body:
Of the 6848 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT’s produced only 614 had the Factory T-Top option ordered and this is one of those rare cars. This is shown on the Production sticker with the CJ8 code that shows this was one of the cars that GM sent to Cars and Concepts ( C & C) to have the T-Tops installed. The T-tops are in great condition with just a few small chips along the black edge of one. They fit snug and tight and do not leak. I have a set of T-Top covers that will come with the car. Have a look:
When you slide inside this low mileage Fiero you will think you are sitting inside a brand new car. It still has that new car smell! The grey cloth seats are in amazing condition with no wear at all! Dash looks perfect, center console looks new, ash trays never used, carpeting looks close to new and floor mats look great.. T-tops seal up great but I recommend driving with them off as much as possible!! Power windows and power mirrors function just as new. The steering wheel and 5-speed shifter show no wear which is amazing. All of the gauges and lights appear to working correctly and the A/C blows ice cold. The previous owner had the A/C compressor replaced with a Factory OEM unit and the system recharged costing him over $600 but the result is icy cold A/C. The temperature gauge is a little quirky which was common on these Fieros. Once it warms up it will read accurately but the needle starts out in the wrong position. This Fiero GT was nicely loaded with options including power mirrors, windows and cruise control. It also has the very rare Performance Factory Sound Option with sub woofer! All of the speakers were replaced including the sub woofer. Have a look inside:
The Fiero’s mid engine layout was chosen as a way to reduce aerodynamic drag and vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency, and also for its handling, traction and braking benefits. The 1988 Model is considered the most desired by most for many reasons. Numerous changes were made to the 1988 Fiero. The most significant was a completely redesigned suspension to realize the full potential of the mid-engine layout. The new suspension included new two-piece brake calipers and upgraded brake rotors. The GT model included the V6 motor with 43 hp more then the 4 cylinder, upgraded suspension and wider tires. Topping off the package were the new vented disc brakes on all 4 corners. With just under 20,000 original miles this particular Fiero GT has really just been broken in and drives like a new one did in 1988. The 5-speed really adds to the fun of driving this true sports car !! The previous owner replaced the original tires and battery due to age. Tires were replaced with nice set of Eagle GT Radials that are close to brand new.This particular Fiero runs fantastic with no issues and sounds awesome!!!! This Fiero handles like it is on rails…fun!! During this final year of production the Pontiac, MI plant where the Fiero was produced shut down and Pontiac made the decision to cease production of the Fiero in February, 1988. There were only 6849 Fiero GT’s produced in this final year. If you do some web research you will see that there are some very interesting comparisons of the Fiero to the Ferrari 308 and performance statistics would surprise the heck out of you with the Fiero. It is a known fact that Pontiac purchased several Ferrari 308 models for handling, engineering and comparison purposes. Some called it a mini Ferrari that was far more affordable. Original Black Painted Wheels are in excellent shape with some minor oxidation along the aluminum edge of one wheel that could probably be buffed out! Front trunk area looks like it did in 1988 and engine compartment is extremely clean as well. As you will see I have the original window sticker and all of the original manuals. This car retailed at just over $16,000 in 1988…think about that! Here are a few pics of the engine bay and trunk area.
This 2 owner, low mileage, show winning Fiero comes with the pedigree that collectors always appreciate including the original window sticker, original warranty book and manuals and other receipt history. As mentioned this car won First in Class year after year at the Fierorama show and the trophies will be included for the next owner. This Fiero will also come with a custom fitted car cover to help maintain its fantastic condition.
HERE IS A SHORT VIDEO SO YOU CAN HEAR THE SWEET TONE FROM THE FACTORY ORIGINAL DUAL EXHAUST!
Bottom line is that this particular Fiero GT is in amazing condition and is truly one of the few American automobiles of its time that can be considered a collectible. Perhaps even better is that it can definitely be driven and enjoyed while it maintains its investment potential. It is definitely a vehicle that has left its mark and would fit it to any car collection. If you are considering a Fiero then doesn’t it make sense to buy a super low mileage,Super Rare T-Top, original, 5-speed in the best color combo?? You bet it does!!!
