Click above for a gallery of the 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT that time forgot

So you're a Pontiac diehard, but you don't need the space of the G8 GT GXP and the Solstice GXP is just a bit too "me too." So what's a Big Chief enthusiast to do? Well, if you've got $35,000 kicking around in your automotive slush fund, how about a brand-new, never-titled 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT? The mid-engined, V6 Fiero that General Motors should have been building the whole time, but only got around to developing just before they sent they took the plastic-bodied model out back? Yes, that GT.

Evidently thinking ahead, some enterprising chap found a fire-engine red example and promptly mothballed it. Quite likely the only "brand new" Fiero on the planet (GT or otherwise), this time warp rear-driver has just 221 miles on it, and is still on MSO. Heck, we're willing to bet that the cassette player has never even seen a copy of White Snake's Greatest Hits!

If you're interested, the optimistically-priced but irreplacable Fiero can be found at Hinton Chevrolet-Buick in Lynden, Washington. Thanks for the tip, Farris!

      That is one stunning Fiero! This one really does belong in a museum somewhere. Absolutely beautiful!

        I second the notion of a DI V6 transplant with a manual. fun times!
        Underrated and ignored, always one of my favorite designs as a youngster...

      Didn't they stop making these because they are notorious for engine fires? lol. no thanks.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Not gonna continue a war here, but the generally accepted reason for the discontinuation of the Fiero was that with any more power, it would border on Corvette territory, and the Bowtie boys wouldn't allow that.

        I have done my research, and I stand by what I said. Have a nice day.

        Skyline and mike:

        Out of over 100k Fieros produced, there were something like 260 engine fires, mainly limited to the Iron Duke 4-banger in the model year 1984 Fiero. Even then, the fires were due to owner negligence regarding oil level and the sportiness of the engine. (The 'Duke had just a 4500 RPM or so redline, but people loved to rev it like a sports car.)

        How about you do some reading before "flaming" a car you don't like?

        it was the "Iron Duke" Tech 4 that was prone to fire, which this car doesn't have. It was also a small percentage of neglected cars that had engine fires.

        Corvette territory? And the Firebird didn't do that?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Does it have full factory warranty????
      • 6 Years Ago
      Maybe he's selling the car to buy a new camera?

        (doesn't seem to like the rest of my text) I live 20min from the dealership selling it. There might be a pilgrimage in order to see this fabled machine.

      I love it, but he'd be lucky to get 15k at the auctions.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Nice car for sure, but it's overpriced by about $30 grand.
      • 6 Years Ago
      There was a car exactly like this Fiero at the RM auction in Novi, Mich two years ago. Still on MSO, no miles. Red GT. Even the optional spoiler wrapped in plastic and not mounted was in the car. It only brought around 19k. In this crappy economy someone would have to be an idiot to drop 35 large on this car. No matter how nice Pontiac made the last Fieros. 35 large buys too many other nicer newer and more fun toys.

      @Mobius_1: You are exactly right. you can get a nice 308 or a Modial T convertible Ferrari with less than $35k on the odo for less money and have a car that is actually worth the money.

      My girlfriend had one of these back in High School (in silver, a much nicer looking color on this thing) and sold it after about 18 months. nice time capsule but worth no where near $35k.

      This kind of reminds me of a neighbor I once had. The guy restored early 80's Chevy Citations. Totally defied logic and reason.

      Of all the crap you could dump money into, why this?
      • 6 Years Ago
      There was a yellow GT on eBay just a couple of years ago (two years I think) that was also never titled. It even still had the plastic wrapping on the seats. I don't think the bidding got above $15,000.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Always had a soft spot for these and the Mr2 cars. An untitled car is easily worth 35k imho.
