479 cars were made for model year 1987, bearing Dash Plaques #s 001 thru 479, while the 1987 & 1988 were considered “SERIES I” causing the 1988s to be numbered 480 thru 1,494, as the numbering did NOT start over for 1988. 1989 & 1990 were considered “SERIES II” ~ so therefore the 247 1989s were numbered 001 thru 247. The 65 units manufactured for 1990 were numbered 248 thru 299 for the normal production, accounting for 53 of the 65 units. The FINAL 12 (Twelve) 1990s were a special run of “Silver~Anniversary Editions” ~ commemorating 25 years that American Sun-Roof Corporation had been in business. (ASC). Those 12 units were numbered 1,900 thru 1,911. (53+12=65).


Units bearing Dash Plaques that began with “1,6_ _” (or Sixteen hundred series are “Service Plaques” ~ or replacement plaques sent to persons whose plaques were stolen or fell off and were lost. A few “1,8_ _” (or Eighteen hundred series) may have also been shipped.

The new color for 1988, as mentioned, was Black-Cherry Pearl. For 1989 there were 3 new colors: “Summer’s Tan” (pastel, non metallic), Paris Blue Metallic and Royal Gold Metallic. The new colors for 1990 were: Coral Pink Pearlescent; Sea Foam Aqua and Dino Yellow. Also new for 1990 were two new interior colors: Oxford White and Ebony Black. Sand Beige interior color was killed off for 1990, as was the Tan roof. New roof color for 1990 was Oxford White vinyl. Royal Gold Metallic, Paris Blue Metallic and Summer’s Tan died at the end of 1989
And….Lastly, WHERE-OH-WHERE did those colors come from ?
