GTA Year: 1989
GTA Engine: 350 TPI Automatic
Number of 350 -t-top GTA's

Anyone have a rough idea how many GTA'S in 89 were made with the 350-t-top option?? I own one with the combo and have people ask all the time. And always tell them its not rare in 89 for the combo but dont actually have a number to back it up, thanks

No but there is some interesting info here that might help you make an educated guess:

Re: Number of 350 -t-top GTA's

You would have to estimate. If my math is correct,

Total GTA in 1989 - 6920
Total CC1 (t-tops) - 5309

So, roughly 76.7% of the GTAs in 1989 had t-tops

Total GTA with L98 - 6554

76.7% of 6554 - 5026

This isnt an exact number as you have to factor in the 366 that were built with the 5.0 and the chance that more or less than 76.7% of those cars may have had t-tops. Personally, I think the percentage was probably a little higher, maybe 80%?

So, I would figure that were 4950-5050 GTAs built in 89 with the 5.7/t-top combo .

Wow, you must want them bad. Personally, I wouldnt buy a 3rd or 4th gen unless it was a t-top or 'vert.

That's just me though.

It would be a GM Delco radio. The RPO code for the radio will be on the SPID sticker in the center console storage bin. CD radio would be code U1A.

Re: Number of 350 -t-top GTA's

to me, the white GTA is just the sexiest F body ever created... add the '89 TTA to it and it's like mixing Fergie, Carmen Electra and Rihanna into one chick lol...

And for Iroc's it's always been electric Blue... so rare, yet so liquid looking...sick.
