The S/E Trans AM was made famous in 1977 when Smokey and the Bandit came out. I sometimes get the two confused and may have them backwards, but I do know they are two different RPO codes though. There used to be a member on the forums that was helping Frankie out and he used the RPO code for the GTA as his screen name. I tried doing a search, but wasn't able to find anything.
Well over the long holiday 'weekend" I did a little on-line research. What I read is the Y84 is the GTA package in the third gens, but also the Y84 is the special limited "Smokey and the Bandit" addition during about the years you mentioned. I'd have to guess the option came out after the movie did in 77'.

I learn something new every day.
