T-Top, Bottoms-Up: 1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula

It is almost the 4th of July, so let's celebrate the spirit of American awesomeness...with none other than the most famous American mid-engine 80s classic -- the Pontiac Fiero.  And we've got a special Fiero today, the limited "Formula T-Top" version.  Find this 1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula offered for $5950 in Olympia, WA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

This is a class-winning rare highest performing factory Fiero: the 1988 Formula 

Just won "Best 80's" class trophy at the Car Show-Off in Mason County (over 300 cars were judged.)

Under 200 5-speed Formulas T-Tops cars were made. Only produced in 1988 the limited-production FORMULA model included:
The mid-engine 2.8L V6 from the GT
The lighter-weight notchback body
The all-new multilink suspension (stolen from a Lotus design) with added WS6 Handling Package.

This Fiero Formula was treated to a restoration in the last decade, including:
Repaint in its original factory Bright Red color. Factory "Formula" side decals have been replaced with elegantly ghosted lettering in the original font.
Interior is beautiful with virtually no wear.
Clean engine bay and front hatch area.
Custom alloy wheels in pristine condition.
Service receipts (from area Pontiac dealers) back to 1995. 

The vehicle runs, handles, shifts and brakes brilliantly! It shows amazingly and is very comfortable even for 6'4"+ drivers. 

Overall, this vehicle represents as one of the nicest Fiero Formulas still used on the road. 

Only $5,950 (+ttldoc in WA) - where can you find a mid-engine sports car for less? Call, text or email with any questions or for a time to come inspect.

  1. I love almost everything about this. Put it on stock wheels and it would be perfect, those wheels are terrible.

    1. I've seen worse, but yeah it would be better with stock wheels. Or maybe C4 Vette wheels...with those fit?

    2. Agreed on the stock wheels and not a bad idea on the Vette wheels too. Found these. Not too shabby!

  2. I still want a Fiero, and it has to be an 88 to get the good suspension, but I just love the lines of the GT too much to go the Formula route.
