All Third Generation F-Bodies from 1988-1992 were built from the Van Nuys, California plant. Some of them were exported to Canada.

Re: van nuys? info asap

I have a question, if the car that you have was produced exclusively for export to Canada, would the speedometer be in Kilometers with the MPH in the smaller font and on the inside, rather than like they are in America with the MPH in larger font on the outside with the kilometers in smaller font on the inside?

If the speedometer has the kilometers on the outside in larger white font with the MPH on the inside in smaller orange font, I would then say that your GTA was built exclusively to be exported outside of America. However if the speedometer has the MPH on the outside in larger white font while the kilometers are on the inside in smaller orange font, then I would say that your GTA was produced for domestic sales.

Look for RPO code Z49. That is the RPO code for an Canadian export.

As YumikoGTA also pointed out, the instrument cluster should have metric measurements as its primary. The speedometer will have kilometers as its primary with miles per hour as a secondary. Additionally, the temperature gauge will read Celsius instead of Fahrenheit and the oil pressure gauge will read in kPa instead of PSI.
