So I was at a shop that specializes in the resale of older truck parts (mine is a 67 Chevy), when the owner noticed my Fiero sitting outside. He then directed me to a item in his store that used to be a display at a Pontiac Dealer. It's a sample rear quarter for buyers to touch, poke, tap or hammer to experience the new EnduraFlex panels. I thought it was a great piece of history and is for sale if anyone is interested. My phone was out of space so I only snapped the one for now, but I'll probably be back at that shop again if someone wants better images.

Interesting. It looks like a passenger lower rear quarter panel.

Hey that's pretty cool, had no idea they provided those to dealers back in the day.

Thanks for posting. Does the shop have any plans for it ?

Edit : I didn't see the info above about it being for sale.

Vaguely remember a similar display at the old Renn Kirby Pontiac downtown Frederck, MD. Went there in '87 or '86 when my dad and I test drove a black '87 coupe (still have a pic). I do remember a salesman handing me a rubber mallet and said, "go ahead and whack away at that fender!" Oh I did!!!

That is kind of cool, but a lot cheaper to make up a little display yourself from an old body panel...depending on what he wants to sell it for.

BTW, Wirthman-Brothers Auto Salvage in Columbus has about a dozen different Fieros in their yard. I seen them all when I got some parts for a project the other day. Most of them looked like most body panels were all there, cant say about mechanicals, I didnt climb around them.
