Look, Rick, I don't like being disrespected.  It's Chesterfield Brown.  Heritage Brown is a 79 color! LOL

Oops -- my bad!  Why can't I remember "Chesterfield"? ??? :D :D

You might want to include deluxe or standard interior selection.

That selection is already there.

On the registry, I think you've got it Brett.  That would give most if not all of the information.  But I noticed there's nothing for a radio or CB.  Opps, rear window defogger.  Rear console. 

I will add some of that stuff in there..... the radio might be a little bit hard, but we shall see.

maybe when you put together the 79 W72 section, document the last ones built

There were a lot of different radio's offered during the years, so you're right that it might be a hard feature to add.

I thought the last one, or very close to it was identified as the one that was sold to John Delorian's brother.  If I recall correctly, it was a blue hardtop with not a lot of options.  It was a low mileage car on ebay a couple of years ago.  Anyone remember that auction?

Now that you mention that, adding a "Build Date" might be good too.

ta78ta. To date the last one known built is mine. Its a Pontiac Motor Division owned 79 Y84 W72 car, it was built on 5/29/79(05E) and sold in cincinnati,ohio in late 9/79. The john deloren car was proven not to be the last built due to its production being on 5/08 in californa. The second from last know is a 79 Y84 W72 as well that is optioned exact the same as mine being built on 5/21/79.

Looks good Brett.

On another note, my car has a block heater option K05.
I wonder how rare that is?

  The build sheet on the 1980 SE (the rear seat you have in your car came from my '80 SE) shows W72 and WS6 on the T/A 4.9 w/ 4 wheel disc, so technically Pontiac still cranked out W72's in 1980 (just not the 400 engine).

Yeah, the list could be endeless with options and codes to try and keep track of....... I mean we can drill down through the whole RPO code list, but then the form would take you 45 minutes to fill out and complete.  I think we should try and keep with the major options and then maybe put in a small "Comments" section that people can add special things like the hood bird delete, or radio delete, or block heater, etc.

Kentuckyyeti you are right about WS6/W72 codes which are shown on the buildsheet into the 1980 year so now I guess I'll have to say WS6/L78  :-\ Either way see you in dayton Mike

Just for the record, when I think of W72, the N/A 301 doesn't come to my mind either.   Your car is nice!  Having the last of the factory performance engines is pretty cool.  See ya in 3 weeks!
