Just ran across this on eBay. Anyone know what this is? It was made for the Fiero and that it is made from all Aluminum. It has illustrations, and mentions the Fiero specifically in the images of the instructions. I never heard of an aluminum spoiler specifically or the Fiero before I saw this.....

It has to be lighter than the stock GT spoilers.

Well, I guess it's exactly what it says it is... a spoiler for use on Fieros with a decklid luggage rack.

I believe it's being referred to in This thread.

It's interesting because I believe that was a spoiler for the 82 Trans Am. It too has the 3 piece design with the plastic end caps and looks identical. They must have just changed the wingstands for the Fiero.

Glad to see that most people could figure out what was being asked


My first thoughts were Firebird as well... I do not think it is a "NOS PONTIAC GENUINE GM REAR SPOILER KIT FOR A FIERO" as it is being advertised as. I was curious what others may know about any details of it ect.

I would like to see one on a Fiero, as I think it would look a little more "edgy" (NOT "Ricey") than the stock Fiberglass ones.

I have a Trans Am spoiler on my Fiero, it's fiberglass, and pretty heavy.

That seller just happens to be one of the largest NOS and Pontiac parts sellers as well as parts reproducers in the Pontiac industry. If he says it is then he is correct and you would be wrong.

It is exactly what the seller says it is, these were factory or dealer installed and came with either 2 or 5 slats depending which one was required as some Fieros came with the base wingless luggage rack . They look like racks and were used as such. Notice the illustration in the instruction sheet is of a Fiero notch back engine lid. The first sheet clearly states that this 2 slat wing model is for the Fieros equipped with the rear luggage rack (three slats).





This is it :




Brochure of cutaway with spoiler and integrated rack ;
It shows that the wing itself was placed behind the rack slats, this was an improvement over the racks that were used on the earlier European and British sports cars like the MG and such.

By the original photo, it looks like a full sized wing not a SMALL wing. Thanks for clarifying with the photo.

Wow, that is pretty cool, I had never seen this before, and I totally stand corrected. Till this point, I had only seen this style on the Firebird's/Trans AM's.

I wonder what the weight difference is between this and the standard fiberglass Fiero GT wing......

I had one and installed it on a friends car. It works with the luggage rack. It is lightweight. It is similar to the ta wing, in size... no where near the factory wing.
