Even when these got wrecked or rusty, most guys with towing or wrecking yards knew enough to know they were unusual and set them aside instead of parting/crushing them. I used to see them places I did business with and got told "nope, that one isn't being parted"...
Add to it these were made when everyone knew the gbody line was ending and plenty got bought by an older guy, tossed in a garage, and rubbed with a diaper for the next 20 years.
Many MANY guys either don't bother with forums, or, prefer not to list their cars in databases. My hunch is somewhere around 5500 or so cars would remain. That's just speculation. But, when 100-something examples of cars that only had 200 or so units built in the 80s are tracked down... (I'm thinking regal packages, mera body fieros, etc) you figure maybe 10-20% attrition at most.
Well, enjoy it, document the heck out of everything you put into it, and, build a running folder of saved for sale and sold examples of comps just in case something happens.going to actually drive the car and take it to shows with my dad didn’t pay much excited to be back in a Gbody , painting the car back to the original silver
Just kidding. Nobody knows how many are left, and nobody can tell you exactly how many got the T-tops. GM didn't keep a record of that breakdown. Anyone who thinks they can tell you are just extrapolating from percentages and hunches.
