Re: "Super Rare 1 of 600"/Production #s

I don't even bother trying to figure out the check digit. I was never really that great at math and it makes my head hurt thinking about it. You know...having the information that Frankie has gathered for the GTA is very helpful. I just wish that the Formula Source had the same information. If it does...we haven't found it yet.

It is a V for sure, this code is between VK3 and WS4. Perhaps this GTA that I got this sticker from was originally from Canada. And also there was not a U73 code on this sticker. Yumiko

I cheated, and made an Excel speadsheet for the Check Digit check. A web person needs to write something to do that online, like we do fo the VIN # check. That'd be cool.

Re: "Super Rare 1 of 600"/Production #s

Decoding this information is pretty neat. I have an idea, since this is not my own GTAs vin, the sticker that I got from the one at the wrecking yard was vin number:

1G2FW21F3HL

That is just the first 11 digits of the vin number. I know that the eighth digit is the engine size so it is a 5.0 liter engine. But what else is the information about this car from the vin number? Yumiko

VIN:1G2FW21F3HL123456

Made in: United States
Manufacturer: General Motors
Model Year: 1987
Make: Pontiac
Carline Series: Trans Am
Engine Code: 305 CI V8 LB9
Restraint System: Manual Belts
Assembly Plant: Van Nuys
Production Sequence: 123456
Carline Code: F-body
Body Type: 2 Door Coupe
Check Digit is Invalid

I added the 123456 to allow the program to run. The Check Digit ( 3 ) showing as 'invalid' is because the 123456 is an invalid number for that particular VIN sequence.

Re: "Super Rare 1 of 600"/Production #s

Why is the hatch so bent? I can see one side closed and the other open.

Now for fun I just looked at an RPO sticker that I got from a car at the wrecking yard a few years ago. It was rare that it would be on a car in the wrecking yard. So when I saw it, I took it off and kept it. I am unsure if this GTA was a 1988, 1989, or 1990. However, the GTA option is on the sheet but the U75 is not on there. Unless the option code for the power antenna had changed after 1987, that would be the only other possibility besides the power antenna not being a standard option after a specific year of GTA production. Yumiko
My RPO list shows V73 : ANTENNA, FIXED even though it had a power antenna when I bought it from the previous owner. There is the relay and connector behind the dash as there should be for a power antenna. Perhaps my Y84 : MERCHANDISED PKG, GTA, TRANS AM option upgrades to the power antenna.
IInteresting, Yumiko. Good find!

Re: "Super Rare 1 of 600"/Production #s

Yeah...my wife's Forumla shows the codes for both fixed and power, but the car clearly has a fixed mast antenna. I was kind of curious why a SPID label would show the RPO code for both when the car actually only has the one.

Re: "Super Rare 1 of 600"/Production #s

Well Frankie clarified that: "V73 is the code for the US/Canadian Vehicle Statement. The fixed antenna would have a "U" code instead of a "V".

After reading this post by Frankie I looked at my own GTAs RPO sticker and I also have the code V73 on mine even though I also have the power antenna option code, as I should since my GTA has that option.

I guess that the code listing that I have may have a few errors on it here and there.

But yes, I was sort of happy to find the sticker to sort of research what options that GTA had and stuff. Yumiko
