    Default Production Numbers

    The GM Heritage Center will sometimes give you specific production figures for options offered when you submit for an information package on your vehicle. However, it has been found that this information from the Heritiage/History center was conflicting with itself so some of the numbers, more specifically t-top figures for '78 and '79, are questionable and even have been verified to be incorrect. Share any information you can here, post a source if you can to help validate your information.
