How can i tell if my 85 is a real iroc-z??

i recently aquired an 85 camaro, iroc-z, or so i think, it has all the body clading, the rims, and the motor code comes up as lg4(305) my question is, in the console on the option sheet, is there a set of codes that i can use to tell what i hace exactly? i have all the stuff off that tag.
it goes like this:AR9.A43.A01.A31.A90.BS1.B18.B34.B35.B84.B9K.C60.DO3., D35.D6K.E5Z.E7Z.E9Z.FA1.GA1.GA2.GU4.J50.K64.LG4.MD8.MXO.NA5.N33.QHW. UE8.UM6.U29.U79.VAN.VK3.V73.YE3.YR2.YS2.YT1.YT9.ZJ7.1AY.GKR.7KR. 75L.8PJ.
OK so waht tdo these say about my cars? does anybody know how to decode this and could you please help me determine what i have?? any help would be greatly appreciated

There is no B4Z? B4Z is the RPO code for "IROC Sport Equipment Package".

SPID Sheet

First make sure that the SPID vin matches the actual VIN of the car, if it doesnt then there really isnt a way to tell. If it does, then according to your SPID sheet, your car is not a real Iroc-z.

I have an 85 IROC. camarosource is correct, B4Z is the RPO for the package. Couple of quick checks: Wonderbar (only IROC's were equipped with them) and door placard (should note 16 in wheels).

The SPID ("Service Parts IDentification") is the sticker that contains your RPO codes. On the sticker will also mention the VIN of the car.

Check to see if the VIN in the windshield and other body parts, such as the hood and doors match the VIN on the SPID. The SPID is located in the center console compartment (see pic). If they match, according to your list of RPOs, it is not an IROC-Z. It gets worse. It's not even a Z28. It's a Sport Coupe. The one RPO that gives this away is QHW. These are 14-inch, 70-series tires that were used only on the Sport Coupe....
