Question Pontiac Dealer Codes???

Does anyone have the dealer codes for the old Pontiac Dealers? I am doing some research on my 1989 Pontiac GTA and don't have the vin# but can research it by when it was bought and from what dealer. The code is a 5 digit code, the first two digits represent the zone and the next three represent the dealer. There are a couple of other forum sites that have lists of dealers but I can't find mine one there. The dealer I'm looking for is:
Peter Levin Pontiac
Chicago Heights, IL

Thanks for the help in advance.

Re: Pontiac Dealer Codes???

According to Google the Dealership is still open and may now sell BMW's. Have you tried giving them a call to ask?

Re: Pontiac Dealer Codes???

Kris sold the car many many years ago, he bought it brand new and kept it for a year or two however he got no documentation left and like to track it down.

The dealercode will help him find the VIN from a list we have of all the TTAs that where ever made.

Re: Pontiac Dealer Codes???

Vin doesnt indicate GTA, its the Y84 option code on the paper sticker ... as Wes suggests - the reading on the site is most informative.

Thanks Jan,

That mean's a lot to me.

I knew you would be the man to find out this info. YOU are the Best.

Narrows things down a bit, hopefully now I can find which one was mine.

Thanks again,

Kris

Re: Pontiac Dealer Codes???

Thanks Kris,

no 470 I got down as a t-top / cloth combo; spent time in AL in the early/mid 2000 and then ended up in Canada.

no 485 is a t-top/leather and I got no owner info on that one.

no 1332 t-top/leather and if my details are correct had 3k miles on it in 2010 ... and says theft recovery ... this would have been built in April of 1989 ...

Maybe the above helps you narrow it down?

Jan

Thumbs down Re: Pontiac Dealer Codes???

Thanks Jan,

My original must of been #485 then. Mine was a T-top/Leather and built before April of 1989. According to the Autocheck report, there is not much history or even any odometer readings. It was only registered in Crystal Lake, IL in 2007 then registered in Statton Island, NY in 2008 and last renewed there in 2012. So that info doesn't make sense to me.I was hoping to use the DMV records from the reports to figure it out but the info doesn't seem to be very acccurate.

I did a Autocheck of all three vehicles and the history does not go all the way back to 89 on all of them. Each one has some strange info on each car. I first thought it had to be #480 with it in Alabama because that is where I sold it in 1991, but that one being a Cloth car cancels that out.

The record for #1332 is really weird. Says it was Salvaged on 12/14/89 in Harvey, IL with 542 miles on it. That is very sad but the good news is it was re-registered this past may again in Chicago, so somebody has kept it alive.
