What's up with this 87






Well take a look. Either I really am tired or this is a misprint but there ain't no way this is a 87. it says clean title so maybe it is a "Frankenstein" car. They Also say all original.

It's an 87 Sport Coupe convertible. Not an LT like the ad claims, an LT would have a round horn button on a vinyl Z28 style wheel, like a Berlinetta but with LT on the button, and it'd have silver Berlinetta wheels.

I might be mistaken, but the headlight coves were only blacked out on Z/28.

Re: What's up with this 87

Everything about it looks to be 87 vintage,...... I highly doubt the 145 cluster was factory installed on an LG4 so beware the advertised mileage !


Edit: Like Drew said; NOT and LT....... I gotta' wonder; are those 4th gen leather seats ?? ( they kinda' look like 94-95 seats. )
