4.9 Cadero: 1988 Pontiac Fiero V8

The Pontiac Fiero isn’t a bad car in stock format, but general consensus of the car guys around middle America is that it needs some more forward thrust and they are more than willing to drop whatever iron block monstrosity can be found at the local pick-n-pull for a few bones..but this one might be worth a gander.  Find this 1988 Pontiac Fiero V8 offered for $9,995 in Pensacola, FL via hemmings.  Tip from BarbPaddles.

 The seller states that he dropped it off at “The Fiero Factory” in Alabama…which isn’t an actual Fiero factory, but is a third party restorer/customizer of the Fiero.  This little mid engine runabout now has a 4.9 liter Cadillac V8, which does have an alloy block, but iron heads because it is the “High Technology Engine” that pushed about 200 horsepower and 275 ft-lbs of torque into a 4-speed auto.
