Title: THEY FOUND THE BUILD SHEET!
Post by: John3407 on July 30, 2010, 01:45:58 PM
Yep, my guys pulled the seats and were removing carpet when one of them noticed the build sheet underneath the cushion of the back seat! I actually teared up while I was being told over the phone. Now I have to do some more research to break down all the codes, BUT I now know that she came with the beige side molding and BLACK seatbelts,(which was a surprise). Also what constitutes a WS4 Trans Am, which is what she is,?

WS4 is code for  Trans AM.   WS6 is a handling package from 78-2002  W72 is the HP 400 engine from 77-79 220hp ,  L78 is the base 400 motor 180hp

WS6 and W72 will be on the build sheet if it has thees options.


go here to brake down the rest of the codes

Yes , I have decided to keep the seat belts original and black. Another little bonus on the build sheet.....my Solar Gold TA did come with the BEIGE side moldings. YAYYY!!! Now I am bummed that I spent the money ordering black AND beige. Anyone want to buy some black side moldings? ??? :D

No, those are camel tan.  I am still trying to understand the person who ordered this car. It was originally shipped to a dealer in Loveland Colorado, yet there was no rear defroster, the Solar Gold paint WITH the BEIGE side molding, BUT BLACK seatbelts and air conditioning. ???

Standard or deluxe interior?  With black belts a black column and wheel looks good.
