    A GN imposter?

    Sign up to remove this ad
    I've had one GN and one T-Type -- great cars. So good, in fact, that I'm looking for another one.

    Just saw a "Grand National" that's black and blacked out, and looks fine after a frame-off restoration, new engine and trans, etc. However, the owner says he replaced the seats with solid black fabric, so no Turbo6.

    What is the VIN difference between an 86GN and an '86 T-Type? Or, how else can I tell?

    Thanks!

    Only way i've seen to tell the difference is to verify the vin in the trunk label (should be on the trunk lid) is the same as the vin for the car, if they match write down the rpo codes and look them up. The vin itself won't tell you if it's a turbo regal, or a gn.http://www.gnttype.org/general/vin.html

    http://carttraction.com/2016-buick-g...rice-interior/, if you watch the video they give a better idea of what to look for. Most useful GN rpo code is WE2
