Help on Codes
« on: October 07, 2006, 10:52:39 AM »
Hi There,

I wondered if anyone could help with a few codes, my brother has just purchased a Trans-am, it is a 1980 gold Trans-am, the code which can be seen through the windscreen is 2W87TAN100001

and the plate under the hood reads a code which is Y84.

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks :D

your production number is 100001? does that mean it was the very first of it's kind to roll off the line? that would be incredible

sorry I don't understand, does Y84 mean this is a special edition?
