Showing just 7454 original miles (not a misprint) and coming from two-family ownership, this 1984 Pontiac Fiero pace car might be one of the best-preserved Fieros available anywhere. The '84 Fiero was also the first (and only) mid-engined car to pace the Indy 500, and only 2000 replicas were made to be distributed to the public, making this one an exceptional find. Despite Pontiac's reputation for over-the-top styling gimmicks and bright graphics, the Fiero, and particularly this Indy pace car, was the model of restraint, with clean lines and a sophisticated two-tone paint job accented with a single bright red pinstripe. The pace cars also wore special front and rear fasciae, as well as side skirts and a large rear wing that would become part of the GT package in 1985, completely transforming the car's overall look. With just under 7500 original miles, the plastic body panels on this Fiero are 100% original and wear factory paint and graphics. It's also obvious that this one has been properly maintained in a climate-controlled environment, as the finish remains bright, the decals are crisp, and all the black rubber trim is still supple and dark. The car is a visual knockout. The interior received a host of upgrades for pace car duty as well. Perhaps a little less restrained than the exterior, the two-tone gray and red seats are definitely built for performance, with aggressive side bolsters and grippy fabric inserts to help hold you in place. As well preserved as the bodywork, the interior is a time capsule back to the early '80s when we thought the future would look like Buck Rogers, and Pontiac delivered. With an instrument panel that seems to float atop the dashboard, a myriad of buttons, switches, and knobs, as well as a 3-spoke steering wheel, it's easy to see why folks went crazy for Pontiac's new 2-seater. This one is also loaded with almost every option you could throw at a Fiero, including A/C, power windows, power locks, and power mirrors. And no, the tach isn't broken-Fiero fans know that when you shut it down, the needle parks itself at about 1400 RPM for reasons that aren't altogether clear, but at least they all do it. Thankfully, the Fiero was light, because the "Iron Duke" 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine made a modest 92 horsepower. Combined with the 4-speed manual transmission, performance is lively and entertaining, and with the all-independent suspension, it was a very competent car when the roads became twisty. The engine bay is all original, and needs little more than a detailing to be ready for show, and the engine itself runs as it should. Color-matched alloy wheels were part of the pace car package, and this one still carries its original Goodyear Eagle GTII tires as well. This is a very cool piece of Pontiac history that will never be seen again, and with low mileage and excellent preservation, this one deserves its place in history.
