Lot Number
Unrestored original
Auction House
Chassis no. 1G2PG1199JP219551. Red over tan leather. 173/135hp V-6, gold wheels, Goodyear Eagle GT tires, sunroof, power windows, air conditioning, factory cassette stereo.

Evaluation: Final year Fiero GT, which is the one to have. Showing 56,393 miles and mostly pampered. Very good original paint showing only light general age. Lightly worn shifter, seats and steering wheel, but mostly sound interior. Tidy underneath.

Bottom Line: For all sorts of reasons, the Fiero was compromised from the start, but by 1988 the top-trim GT was finally the car it should have been from the beginning. Its issues were sorted out, and for that year it got all-new and much better suspension. In a classic GM move, however, the Fiero got good just in time for it to get the axe, and today most people remember the earlier Fieros that caught fire.

Relative to the comparable Toyota MR2 or Honda CRX Si, Fieros don’t command as much respect, nor do they command as much money. This one sold for $8715 last January on Bring a Trailer, where clean CRXs have sold for over twice that. It got so much more attention at Barrett-Jackson, and although other ’88 GTs have sold for more, the seller should be ecstatic with this result.

    Great pictures of a classic car. Looks just like the one parked in my garage. It is a 1988 FIERO GT-T-TOP with just under 38,000 miles. Has a low mileage 1994 Camaro 3.4L engine, completely overhauled 3 speed automatic transaxle (2.84 to 1 final ratio), All new wheel bearings, special sports suspension by Eibach, factory A/C, AM/FM/CD radio from a 2000 Pontiac Transport, electric antenna from a 1996 Buick Regal, electric windows, ceramic coated stainless steel exhaust headers with Ferrari style Ocelot exhaust tips. Many additional parts from “The Fiero Store’. All the conversion work was done at a GM dealership in Gresham, Oregon. The car is red with tan leather factory interior. It has never been in an accident and is currently insured with Geico. My wife an I are getting too old to get in and out of this great car, so it is going to be sold to some lucky car ‘nut’. We live in Tucson, Arizona not too far from Davis-Monthan airbase. We are the 7th owners of this Fiero, it started it’s life in Wisconsin, and we have had contact with all the previous owners. It was always transported by truck when it moved around the country. (Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Oregon and then Arizona). We are asking $21, 500.00 and it will be dealer serviced prior to any change of ownership.
