differences in the 2+2 cars 6 Years, 2 Months ago  
These 1986 models were supposed to be no option cars, meaning you could not change the option list. But I have noticed at least 2 differences in vintages of these cars.

The first was paint around the 1/4 windows. Some had it, some didn't. Example pics below.




The second thing was the rounding of the roofline where the new window meets. It has been documented that the factory in michigan just used a hammer and pounnded the roof in, and then smoothed the corner with bondo. Most rough condition 2+2s have the bondo cracking on them. Some had a sharp corner, some had a smooth corner. Here is an example below.

another difference is the trunk latch. One of my cars has an extra bracket, where the other one does not. It could be that the bracket was added later (looks like some rivets are missing) but there are 2 holes in the trunklid where the bracket mounts that appear factory. Noticing a lot of these things between the cars...

Hi. Just wanted to post about my car, which I just purchased in July, 2013 from a dealer in Iowa. The trunk lid has the number 111 on it. The roof is rounded, plus it has the black around the 1/4 windows. I don't think the number is a production sequence number, but I don't know a whole lot about it as yet.
