If it's the same one I called about about five years ago, it was owned by a dealer and was for sale at that time as I remember for 25 grand. Obviously, I didn't buy the one I'm talking about but, IIRC it was located in PA. Being sold as new, that would mean it would come with the original warranty. I think that was 3 years or 36,000 miles.

Being that it's a GT, I'd probably shock the seller when the first thing I did was replace the fast back with a notchback.

Man.....that is my favorite color combo for a Fiero. My very first Fiero (bought it 20 years ago) was identical to this one and I bought another one in 1997 with 10K miles. If I had the $$ I would be all over this. Even though I think $19K is ridiculous, sometimes nostalgia for things past kicks in and all reason and sanity go out the window......I'd buy it in a New York minute if I had any cash.

The seller has (or had) 3 new 88's, and 2 additional 88's with less than 5K miles each.

Purple Reign has an 88 GT T-Top car with just barely over 100 miles on it... I have to say the Fiero interior looked a lot better when it was new...

To me its restorable or a great parts car. I wouldnt trust driving it across town. Unless its REALLY professionally stored, it needs more work done than a high miles used one.

That is not necessarily the case.... If that car was stored properly in a climate controlled environment, it could certainly be in brand new condition, I am sure as well that anyone who would attempt to keep a car in storage for that long would certainly drain it of fluids and put a cover over it. It certainly looks like it was well cared for. I do not remember what the car sold for new but to have a BRAND NEW Fiero Gt that looks that good would certainly be worth something.... I dunno about 19k but I would not be surprised if someone bought it for that.... Just think of the guy who was a nerd back in high school, wanted a fiero GT like a passion and mom said hell no so he waited and got smarter, went to a great college, got a super job and makes some serious dough.... then he happens upon his dream car in the exact same condition as the one he sat in at the dealer back in 86 and just gotta have it now..... that is what got me back into fieros, I wanted one like crazy when I was a kid but the parents said hell no....Now I am trying to make the fiero of my dreams years later.... never doubt the ability of people to pay for what they want..... peace

In 1987, my new GT had a sticker of a little over $16 K, maybe by 88 they were $17 k?. Inflation hasn't done anything for the price of the car, but 19K wouldn't be a bad deal for a new car. If you want a new 22 year old car.

I have a friend that owns a Corvette with very low miles like that Fiero. He took it to a show and when he tried to drive home the clutch went away. It lost both master and slave cylinders, and according to the dealer the throw out bearing was seized up too. $1800.00 later he drove his low mile vette home.

It does not hurt to drive them at least once a month, and get them up to full operating temps. Beautiful car, except that the original black water based paint and clearcoat would not last very long here in the desert southwest

Wow, that looks really nice. However, the devil is in the details. There is a good chance it will need a lot of seals and gaskets replaced, and maybe other work done if someone really wanted to drive it. That is a long time to sit for a car.

At this point, it's best use would be as a trailer queen.
