Different types of Roadmasters?

1g4bR82p is a Buick Roadmaster Estate [Wagon, obviously].
1g4bT52p is a Buick Roadmaster Limited.
1g4bN52p is a Buick Roadmaster.

Those 'vincards' are in error regarding commercial chassis …
4gldb90p is a Buick Roadmaster Hearse.

Turns out the only way to tell if it's got 2.56 or 2.93, is to get under the front bumper & look for a mech fan, and these days, anyone who knows better would've already corrected that …

1g4bN52p is a Buick Roadmaster ???????

1g4bT52p is a Buick Roadmaster ???????

What's the difference between the two?
Does it necessarily correlate to the difference[s] between a 'base' & a 'Limited'?

4gldb90p is a Buick Roadmaster Hearse
Just guessing, but it probably is related to base VS limited sedan. I've had both, and the VIN does seem to suggest that from the ones I owned.

What year (s) are these - the 10th digit?

Not showing in 94 Buick FSM.

BTW - 94 FSM has a mistake here - it shows "Q" for 1994 when it should be "R". 95 is "S", 96 is "T". 93 is "P".
