Recently picked up my 5th F-body (1st 4th gen), a 1996 Trans Am
Convertible. Automatic and loaded with every option except Ram Air. It
is purple with white top and white leather interior. Yeah, I know it's
not everone's cup of tea but it was a good deal on a 1 owner(female
state trooper), very well maintained T/A with ALL books and records.
Is there a place where I can find out just how many purple T/A
convertibles were produced in '96? I am guessing it's one of the more
rare (less popular) colors of the 10 Pontiac offered that year. Does
Pontiac still break down production by options or interior/top/exterior
color combo's too?
Also, the top stalls about 1/4 of the way down and needs a bit of a
push to finish lowering. I have checked the bolts and they are all
tight. I have seen the TSB on the bolt problem but my VIN # is outside
the VIN # of the affected cars. The previous owner had to have the top
adjusted twice...is this a common problem with the tops on these?
Thanks for any insight
