I have 40 some options
Many shown on yours are not "options"
Just identification of what was actually installed to help the service guys out

Yours has
BGR - Bowling Green assembly ( had to made somewhere )
L98 - the only engine available
V73 - Vehicle statement certification, ( a required sticker )
NA5 - Federal emission system requirements
D3X - Speedometer driven gear ( to suit the optional 3.07 gears you have )
D9B - Speedometer sensor to suit 3.07 gears

Some RPO's double up and are not "true" options
QZD - 16" wheels with P255/50 VR16
PW9 - Cast aluminum wheels, 16 x 9.5
MX0 - Automatic transmission
MD8 - Automatic 4-speed transmission

Some identify the trim and paint ( had to have paint )
73I : INTERIOR TRIM, FLAME RED
732 : TRIM COMBINATION, LEATHER, FLAME RED
81U : PRIMARY COLOR, EXTERIOR, BRIGHT RED


To me " fully loaded" is having all the available optional non base items like
heated mirrors , both power seats ,Elec A/c ,Bose , sports suspension , etc

:agree: I'm with the Wizard of Oz here. Take a look at mine:

The only other option in '86 was C68 Elec A/C, which was not available on the convertible. This is a fully loaded car.

Yea Steve, especially with the number of pieces it's in at the moment. But in honesty, with this being the first Corvette I was able to buy new, I think I'd still keep her.:thumbsup:

Wow I'm not sure I knew you bought that new. I can imagine your feelings on that, I've only had mine 13 yrs and wouldn't sell it for anything.

Also I didn't forget about you on that mag, I brought it home and went on vacation so I need to remember to bring it back from home to mail it.:thumbsup:

Yea, I ordered it at the end of May in '86, right after the Indy 500. Finally had a decent paying job and who could resist the first drop top Corvette in a decade.

Not to worry about the mag, I'm in no hurry, just happy you were willing to sign it for me.:thumbsup:
