Check out this 1984 Official Indianapolis 500 Pontiac Fiero Pace Car. Only 2000 pace cars were made out of the 137,000 models sold. Pontiac were given the opportunity to provide the pace car for Indianapolis 500 on four occasions. 1984 was one unique to the Pontiac brand bringing in an all new mid-engine Pontiac Fiero.
The Fiero is powered by the GM Pontiac, mid-mounted 2.5L, 151CID, incline 4 Iron Duke engine linked to the GM Turbo hydramatic 3 speed automatic transmission. Pontiac was able to sneak the sprightly Fiero into production as an economical runabout, borrowing heavily from GM’s economy car parts to deliver an affordable car to the buying public.
Interior is mated with grey leather bucket seats featuring red fleece inserts, embroided seatbacks and audio speakers embedded within the head seats. Equipment includes cruise control, air conditioning, power windows, door locks and a Delco cassette stereo equipped with a graphic equalizer.
The exterior on this example is finished in white (4OU) with medium grey lower cladding. Features of the Indy Pace car editions include the removeable pop-up sunroof, power side mirrors, a rear spoiler and unique badging. The SE trim for the Fiero included the WS-6 handling package featuring the 14” cast aluminium wheels finished in white.
