Actually it will be the 8th digit to look for "P" not the 7th.
212, this is a response to you Private Message:
I think that cloning is the way to go. Now, if you can do the paintwork yourself, you will be sitting pretty after the job, unlike LT1Kicker stated. However, if this paintwork must be paid out of pocket, than you could verywell have invested around $10,000 for an entire project. My recommendations are as follows, for making a decent clone, and being cost effective.
A clone job doesnt have to be paid for in one big lump, as would the purchase of your 100000 mile SS.
You can search hi and low, and locate, albeit a rarer find than a white with blue int. 9c1, a black 9c1 with a grey interior. When you go to clone the interior, you are looking for just the seats, which can be picked up for as little as $300 (the lowest I have seen for front and rears). Nothing else really needs to be touched, unless you want perfection, than you need some odds and ends, the big one being the console. In cloning, I never plan to do the interior like and SS anyway, which is why this entire aspect of the job I never relate to. I envision something custom to sit in, not something factory.
The body, minus the paintwork, is cheap. It involves buying only 6 parts. Grille, sidescripts, leaping deers by glass, and the trunk lock surround. Everything else is either removed, or painted. The spears on the doors, I dont include as it seems alot of true SS owners dump them anyway.
Wheels and tires. To roll with SS stock, you can spend $1000 and be set with Brand New factory wheels, rolling on some 275-40 Kumho ECSTA 712's. THere are sets of repro SS wheels on EBAY all the time at $530 buy it now, and the tires run $130 shipped.
The paintjob will kill you like I said. It will involve painting everything monchromatic. It will also involve painting some items black. It will involve removing the interior to paint under everything blah blah.
My next project will begin in two months, if I have the car. What I am going to look for is this:
Any color Ext, prefer grey or tan interior.
Thats all I need. If all esle fails, or I find one I cant pass up, I WILL settle for a white and blue combo, and I WILL settle for a 94 after doing my window mod to the 91, for me its will be a no brainer to install the 95 style glass on the car. That will be the first MOD if you will.
Whatever you chose, go by your instinct, what you like and need. Good luck, keep the community posted!
