Did you know they made a 4 seat Fiero? GM built a number of extended wheelbase Fieros as they were studying the space frame technology. Most of these were destroyed, but one of them was fully finished out as a show car and went on the 1986 Auto Show Circuit. If you have been around the Fiero community for a while, you will remember it from the 20th and 25th Anniversary Shows. The car was part of the GM Heritage Collection until 2009 when it was auctioned off along with a number of other prototypes as part of GM’s bankruptcy. It pretty much disappeared after that until 2 years ago when Northern Illinois Fiero Enthusiasts Activity Director Jeff Jones saw it pop up on his Facebook news feed. A friend was tagged in a picture someone took while doing an article on some of the owners other cars. This spring Jeff wrote the owner to invite him to the 35th Anniversary Fiero show next summer and added a “PS any interest in selling”. The answer was yes, so Jeff contacted Heartland Fiero Club’s Chairman Fred Bartemeyer Jr. , who owns a number of Fiero prototypes and factory experimentals and knows how to properly maintain these rare cars, and they purchased it.
This prototype will be at the upcoming Heartland Fiero’s Car Show September 2nd and at the 22nd Annual 22nd Annual Fierorama – where deuces are wild. Look for an upcoming article in FieroFocus magazine.
