1986 Pontiac Fiero 2M4 Sports Coupe
P-Car

Pontiac Fiero 2M4
Pontiac Fiero, America's first mid-engine sports car.

This is my 1986 Pontiac Fiero 2M4 Sports Coupe page. Hopefully this simple page will show off my car at its best to fans of this car. A unique piece of American automotive history, that already has become a future collectable and will only rise in value, so jump in while they're still going for a song. These cars are very affordable, cheap to maintain and insure. They get fantastic fuel mileage (I average 26mpg in the city, 40 on the highway) while at the same time will handle the road like a sports car costing thousands more. I guess what I'm trying to say is you get one hell of a bang for your buck!

The body is composite plastic panels, much like a Saturn or the first generation GM Lumina and Transport minivans, and is in excellent damage free condition including the sail panels and rear tail lights. A recently applied "wet look" gloss black paint finish that is very nice indeed, on a very clean damage free steel under body

All body panels are straight and damage free, all trim and accessories are intact (including the mint sail panels, removable tinted glass sunroof, rear luggage rack),and
in excellent shape. The factory optional 14-inch Pontiac "High Tech" alloy rims, which could use a new coat of clear applied, but are straight and don't have that common over the week leak, and from 10 feet back look great.

Update May 12, 2002.
I have just added a very nice set of 15-inch Diamond Spoke alloys from an '86 Fiero GT that have the gray center with polished lip, they also have excellent tires 205's on the front and 215's on the rear, just like the way the GT's came originally. I think they add to the look of this black Fiero, and improve the handling like no tomorrow. See the 2 new images below.


 

pontiac fiero mid-engine 2.5l iron duke

 

The engine is the stock 2.5L "Tech 4" 4-cylinder "Iron Duke" and is in very good running condition, even though it shows 140,000mi (225K in Canada) on the odometer, I'm sure it's been rebuilt at some point as the compression is excellent and starts right up after sitting for a couple of weeks and doesn't stumble or surge. This engine is tight with no excessive valve train or bottom end clatter, and requires no repairs, it doesn't burn or leak any fluids what so ever. The engine is also completely stock and original with a single Rochester TBI carb and a factory 1986 exhaust system, with the factory catalytic convertor still in very good condition. This engine set up is one of the most common 4-cylinder engine and drive-lines, and is used with many other GM vehicles, so to maintain it is a breeze and very easy on your pocket book.

The transmission is the optional Isuzu 5-speed standard shift, and again is in excellent running order, with smooth positive shifts and no clutch slippage.

The braking system on this car consists of power assist 4-wheel disc, and is in excellent condition requiring nothing at this time, including the parking brake. The manual rack and pinion steering is tight with no excessive play. From the descriptions of the mechanical components this car is in good to excellent driving condition.

The interior is in very good, clean original condition with no wear to the mint condition driver's and passenger seats, and are in gray cloth. The dash is dark gray with after market wood appliqués and also is original with no cracks or warping. I have added a more usable dash mounted glove box from an 1986 Fiero GT and it matches the existing interior perfectly. The center console also is in great condition with wood appliqué. There is a working factory original Delco AM FM cassette stereo with 2 factory speakers upfront and 2 factory speakers in the rear side panels, and sounds fantastic. All controls and accessory switches work and there is nothing missing or broken in this interior. Some of the options that the interior also features are intermittent wipers, tilt-steering with paddle style horn buttons, tinted glass and factory removable glass sunroof, with wind deflector.

pontiac fiero front trunk


This is the front trunk area with spare tire (never used), and the windshield washer bottle and power brake booster. The rad is in fine shape as are the headlamp assemblies including the motors. I have just replaced the heater core, so it'll keep ya warm and toasty on those late night cruises.

pontiac fiero underbody spaceframe


This is the under body looking from the front of the car. The darker black areas are just some touch ups to parts and areas that I felt needed some sort of covering from the elements, and is by no means covering up rusted or damaged floor areas or the like. As you can see it's pretty clean for a car with 225K on the odometer.

This is the rear of the under body, again sorry for the paint touch ups but I didn't want any unprotected metal to be exposed to our lovely Canadian climate.
The car is currently located in Toronto, Ontario Canada.


Over all not bad shape for a car 20 years old that has been a regular all season very reliable driver for all those years. Yes all the early recall and GM upgrades have been done, so please don't have any concerns about those 1980's rumors about these cars bursting into flames, or taking flight, as they were only rumors put out by GM's other sports car division (Chevrolet Corvette) to stop producing what at that time was a 2-seater mid-engined sports car that with the V6 could out run a Vette.
