Re: 1987 gta convertible???

Since there is no central database of what dealership did what, you would have to rely on ASC's numbers.
I do not think their records separate GTA's or Trans Am's from the rest of the Firebird they converted.

There has only been 1 year that GM assigned a RPO code to a GTA to be converted.
In 1989 all Turbo Trans Am's were GTA's.
I believe that 1, 2 or 3 TTA's had the RPO code for conversion from GM.
I've yet to see this "RPO" code for an 89 convertible. What is the "code" because I thought only cars with the 6th digit of the VIN as a 3 also received a code.
