Is this a plus or not? I'm confused...

    I've got all the 91+ body pieces(except the trunk. Some asshat changed it) and color, but I saw this underneath:

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that a cable shifter?

    Here's the car:

    What gives?

    It looks like a Plus. Not all Plus models got the Rod Shifter. Some non Plus cars came with Rod Shifters. It looks like you've got the chrome around the windows. That is the tell tale sign of a Plus. All the other items can be added pretty easily, but the chrome trim would be a B!%{# to add. Does it have a moonroof? Very few Plus models didn't get a moonroof.

    Yeah, looks like a Plus, with the trim that Chad mentioned, plus the black B pillar and mirrors, and body color rub strip.

    Rod shifter was a running change, unrelated to the Plus option package. It's not only missing the trunk (I'm guessing an accident at some point), but IIRC all white Plus cars had the white slicers.

    I'm pretty sure they did. They guy gave me the stock wheels with it. But they were basket weaves.

    Lace wheels are obviously only 89-90. But, if they're in excellent shape, nice ones are hard to find, and reconditioned ones are around $175 (actually a price drop, I paid $225 each for reconditioned lace wheels about 10 years ago).

    So how hard is it to find a factory spoiler? I can get the trunk paint matched and make it plus worthy.

    Semi-hard. Just don't be in a hurry. You'll find one, and may even find a trunk lid and spoiler.

    Non-Plus Gen 1 guys have bought them, so there's some out there.

    Just a thought....

    Yes, get Chad's spoiler, if he'll part with it.

    But, hold off and look for (1) a Plus trunk lid minus spoiler, or (2) a Plus lid with spoiler... And BONUS POINTS if it's white!

    Rather than drilling a rust free trunk lid, just wait awhile until a better choice shows up. Per Murphy's Law, you know that the day after you drill your current lid for a spoiler, a white 91+ lid with spoiler will show up in the Classifieds!

    Rod shifters did not come out till half way through the 91 production run I have a 91 plus with a cable shifter. Check the manf. Date code on door jam if it was made after may of 91 should be a rod but they may have been using up whatever cables the had left.

    I have a 91 plus that is white in color and has a spoiler that I use for parts if you need something let me know. You can have anything except for motor/ trans/ and sway bars. The rest is up for grabs.
