1985 Pontiac Fiero GT - loaded
Street Survivor for sale
I bought this car last fall, and have enjoyed it tremendously (I had a Red/tan 2M4 in college but always wanted a GT). Draws a crowd, and the kids love it. Fantastic way to drive to work at low cost - and a lot of fun!
It has 49,900 miles ( I bought it with just over 40K).
· 2.8L V6 Engine
· 4 Speed Manual Transmission (seriously who wants an auto?)
· A/C (with brand new compressor)
· Tilt, cruise (works perfectly), intermittent wipers
· Power door windows and locks, mirrors, headlamp doors - all work properly
· Firebird CD stereo has replaced the old cassette deck and has EQ and iPod input!!!! VERY RARE!!!! Same Pontiac orange backlighting - seamless OEM look. CD and iPod in a Fiero without ruining vintage look!
· New Pioneer 4x10 speakers, plus stock in headrest. Killer sound.
· Rare cassette storage option
· New moonroof and door window gaskets
· Replaced heater core, washer motor, brakes (new slotted and drilled rotors, new low dust pads, rebuilt master cylinder, one worn caliper rebuilt)
· OEM wheels and tires for the purists (more than 60% tread)
· The best steering wheel, the padded GT 3 spoke
I bought it for $5000, and have put about $1500 of parts into it. So my BIN is a very reasonable $5950 and the reserve is set at $5600. Will not accept lowball offers. I will just continue to enjoy the ride :) if I can't get a reasonable price.
The very good
· Non smoker interior is nearly mint
· Great stereo set up with stock look
· Super low miles
· A lot of needed repairs done for you already
· Everything works - even the headlamp motors which is a common issue
· A fill up is 8 gallons (holds 10) and will take you 225 miles, which is 28 MPG.
· I get over 25 even combined in town, with sports car performance.
· In VA, I have often filled up for a weeks worth of driving for just over $20. Not many $6000 cars YOU WANT TO DRIVE can do that.
The not so good
· The plastic panels have excellent paint, but the steel engine lid paint is beginning to look tired, with some oxidizing and orange peel. I plan to repaint if I keep it over the winter. Lower aero panels have some rubbed areas (damaged before me but not noticeable except up close) that could be redone as well.
· The hydraulic clutch is getting a little tired. If you hold the clutch in a long time (like at a long stop light) you notice it begin to engage. Not a problem in normal driving but a rebuilt clutch master and slave (about $80 each plus time) would do the trick. I just don't leave the clutch down for more than about 15 seconds and no problems....
· The headliner is looking tough, ditto on my desire to replace over winter. I may have it done before sale.....but no promises.
· Two areas of interior dash paint could use a touch up (base brown beginning to show over the light brown paint. This is a two tone piece that is intended to have the base brown in some areas that are accented by areas painted by light - easy touch up with correct paint).
Great value at a great price. Selling to buy a tractor (I know I know - should probably keep her but Mrs says she's gotta go first!)
