    Re: The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    I do recall hearing that Shelby got them made for about $18 each (in quantities of thousands, of course). I think he had them in the catalog of the time for less than $50.

    Yes sir, those were the days! lol

    But it was sold in the "Shelby store" and that is how it got on his 89 GTC (probably).

    I thought so. I asked the guy that very thing, and he said it was on the car when he bought it at 4x,xxx miles. So, the PO must have exchanged it. Thanks for the info!

    Re: The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    Another GTC curiosity question. Anybody ever see a sticker like mine with a hand-written date on it? Does it mean anything? Just wondering if this type of "special" treatment makes it unique somehow. Working hard to try to learn whatever I can about its early days. Any thoughts?

    I would think that someone wrote over the sticker in sharpie as the sticker faded.

    You could be right Cordes, but I don't see anything typed there. I'll look at it with a magnifier to see if something faint is there. My strut tower has a date in Sharpie (see below), which I also believe was from the factory. I guess I just thought maybe they were related and might have a special significance since most were typed. Of course, it's more likely something like what you said, but I am playing the long-shot here as I try to learn everything I can about my car. Thanks!

    Nope, those stickers fade badly sometimes.

    It looks like some just wrote over it so they would know the build date. MDH on there is the build date. Looks like either it says 11th month, 14th day, 19th hour, or 11th month, 4th day, 19th hour. It looks like there is a 1 behind the "M" in the "MHD". Those things fade so bad. I have a couple of cars were you couldn't read anything on them anymore.

    I blew up the original, and I see what you are saying. I think it is 111419 201. What is the 201?

    Re: The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    I have another question. Can anyone tell me the OEM color/code for the center section of the 16" wheels on the '89 GTC. I have a few spots I would like to touch up. I thought it was argent, but that seems too gray?? For reference, I'm talking about these wheels.

    Bump for anyone knowing the color name or paint code for the center portion of these wheels.
