Received the Hawks '87-'89 tonneau pad, and it fits the 1986 just fine. Only difference is that the driver's side of the pad has a unneeded rectangular cutout for the top or tonneau release (?). My top release is under the center if the tonneau.

Re: SPECIAL EDITION CONVERTIBLES ASC ONLY PLEASE

My 89 has a slide to release the top from the tonneau on the drivers side.

I wonder if you contacted Hawks, if he would make you one without the cutout.

At this point, the new part is already on the car and looks fine. No need to spend another $600....

ASC and GM built the 87 Camaro convertible as a 20th Anniversary edition car. Some 87s have a map pouch like a Firebird but with lettering stating 20th Anniversary, the ones without the map pouch have the plate.

One theory is that cars ordered from GM as convertibles have the pouch, and cars sent to ASC by buyers and dealers got the plate. Not sure if that's accurate anymore. Hope that helps

Re: SPECIAL EDITION CONVERTIBLES ASC ONLY PLEASE

Drew, you are correct, the VIN 3 cars had the pouch in 87, and the VIN 2 cars had the "Special Edition" emblem. I have not seen anything contrary to this, unless someone changed it.

Re: SPECIAL EDITION CONVERTIBLES ASC ONLY PLEASE

GTASourcePage.com mentions that 1989 ASC convertibles had "both an RPO code and a drop-ship code" for cars ordered by the dealer to be converted.

Is that a correct statement?

What are those two codes?

Car: 1986 Z28 ASC Convertible SE #0088

Re: SPECIAL EDITION CONVERTIBLES ASC ONLY PLEASE

My father has #0088. 1986 Z28 ASC Special Edition.

My grandfather bought it brand new from a local Chevy dealer (Jack Maxton) here in Columbus, OH. He passed it down to my dad when it got too difficult to get in and out of, so it has been family owned since new. Has 79k miles on it.

My father has been considering selling it. We know its pretty rare, but we're not sure of its actual value.

Re: SPECIAL EDITION CONVERTIBLES ASC ONLY PLEASE

That is an earlier ASC convertible: meaning an 86 but probably a late 86. The ASC just under the lighter I've only seen on 86s and very early 87s. Beautiful car.
The value is going to have to be determined by you& a potential buyer. The title will say it is a couple based off the 6th digit of the VIN being a "2". It is technically an aftermarket convertible but luckily it was completed by the same company (ASC) that did GM factory convertibles.
ALL documentation adds to the value & value should be higher than a ttop pr hardtop 86 with similar options.
beautiful car & thank you for sharing.
If you have any original paperwork we'd love to see pictures of that too.

Re: SPECIAL EDITION CONVERTIBLES ASC ONLY PLEASE

rocketolds400, Nice looking car... I was wondering, would you be willing to share the last 8 digits of your VIN, I do not want the whole thing. This would tell us roughly when it was made, and which factory it came out of. It would help us with our research. Thanks

John
