Re: a little curious

I would like to know this myself. I was curious when I was looking at my invoice and window sticker for my car.

Re: a little curious

The way I see Pontiac's less-than-stellar record keeping back in the day.... you'd have to have access to all the invoices for all Firebirds during a model year to plot this info.

I don't have that kind of bargaining power, my friend. So, basically.... the answer is no.

Re: a little curious

Frankie's right, but that would be very cool info to have. I know my car must have been one of the first because its an 87 with paddle mirrors, but was it the first??? never know I guess.

Re: a little curious

In all honesty I knew the answer to my own question. But I was hoping there would be a small chace to knowing. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT MONTH THE 89'S WERE FIRST COMING OUT OF THE ASSEMBLY LINE TO THE DEALERS?? I have seen alot of 89 invoices and most say sometime in 89. My invoice says 9/18/88 hoping myn was one of the first, that be cool. Again probably no way of knowing

Re: a little curious

I can't speak to '89, specifically, but on my '95, she was a 6/94 build.

Re: a little curious

I know that when I bought TheBigRedCar new on 09/23/1988, the dealership had two '89s in the back holding lot: a red Firebird Formula 5.0L and a Gunmetal GTA 5.7L/T-top car.

They tried to get me to hold off on buying my car because they wanted to sell me the grey '89 GTA instead.... but could not until after October 1, 1988.

So I'm sure there are cars out there that probably have late 08/88 and 09/88 build dates.... I saw these two with my own eyes.

Re: a little curious

Pretty sure the plant changeover for the next model year usually happens in early Summer.

Re: a little curious

I think without going to the garage and looking my 87 has 12/86 in it.
