A nice 1992 GTA

Very nice black on black 92 GTA. Kinda splitting hairs with the t-tops though...not aftermarket but not factory either. That isnt the U1A cd player either. Did the cd radios installed in 3rd gen 'birds ever have knobs?

Re: A nice 1992 GTA

In either case, if I had the $$$ I would buy it. It would be a worthy investment. I am not a fan of ttop cars but I would make an exception on that one. Whoever gets it needs to register here so the can be a Spotlight and we get more details on it and get to drool even more. :drool:

Re: A nice 1992 GTA

That car is fishy. I periodically look for 92 GTAs and I saved an ad for that car previously. That car was on Ebay before and was sold by rvz to wwgta on October 14, 2007 for $5,500. In that auction, the mileage was listed as 94,000 miles. Now its listed as 65,000 miles.

The car has two wrong center cap emblems, map pocket, CD player,
missing lug nut cover, wrong steering wheel (although original is included), no provisions for securing T-Tops that should be in the carpet in the hatch, yellow plug wires, GTA throttle body plate (although pics from 07 had the smooth one), catback, etc. Also, he lists 508 92 GTAs were built when the actual numbers were 274.

The VIN matches the one from the ad in 2007. I have a feeling that the cluster was swapped or that the odometer was rolled back. I hope someone does a VIN search to see if there are any mileage records and posts the results.

Re: A nice 1992 GTA

Today I looked at a 1992 GTA - Quasar Blue!!!!!!!! That would have been 1 of 48 for Canada and since in the US there were only 15 Quasar Blue GTAs, percentage wise it would have been 1 of 3.

The car pulled into the parking lot with Trans Am decals, Firebird center caps, and a review of the SPID sheet showed no Y84 code.

My wife had bought the car for me to help me get over my 1988 GTA engine fire. End result: No GTA!! It was a Trans Am. Also, Seller claimed to have a 350 with T-tops!!!

So, end result, Probably also a 305 vs 350. Also, the owner could not produce a valid owner's certificate (you know what that means), so we obviously passed and alerted the authorities.

Re: A nice 1992 GTA

Those T-tops are factory, just that they are not glass, but the plastic ones.

Just letting you know,

George

I realize the t-tops themselves are factory parts. What I meant was that the t-tops on that GTA are not factory installed. Its kind of splitting hairs but the bottom line is CC1 is not on the SPI sticker.

Re: A nice 1992 GTA

I wasn't trying to split hairs, just figured people didn't know about the plastic T-tops.
Sorry if I somehow offended you.
Where do you see the SPI sticker?
I don't see it on the ebay ad.

Just wondering,

George

As far as I can tell the T-Tops look factory but it is missing the T-Top hold downs in the carpet (T-Top cars came with different rear carpet as well) and there likely isn't any provisions in the back plastic panel. Also, there isn't a pic of the T-Top bag.

I own a T-Top and Hardtop GTA so that is how I know.

No offense taken, George. I didnt mean to say that you were splitting hairs. I was referring to any debate over whether some would consider these to be "factory" t-tops because they were installed using GM parts.

There isnt a picture of it but since they are dealer installed, the RPO certainly wont be on the sticker.
