Add 1 more to that number, I own a '84.
Me too. 84 GN mostly original except for the usual bolt-ons, alky, hot wire FP, etc.. Owned her since 1988, good shape inside and out, runs great. High mileage summer dry daily driver. Unless I'm offered a stupid amount of cash It's not for sale.
In case you haven't seen this.
Count me in with 84 GN. Rebuilding bottom end right now, front mount intercooler, ta49, 2800 stall, chip, 3 inch downpipe, etc.
Very nice Jerryl.
A handful received that option... so not too many. I have seen 3 thus far besides mine.
I Have 2 84 GN'S one with t-tops, and one with astroroof(moonroof).
OK, I'll bite - how many has got to be a guess but I know of at least three in Canada that were bent around a telephone pole or bridge abutment. There were some 200 of the 2000 imported into Canada and only 4 in the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area. Mine was originally sold to a Dan Davis from Harvey Pontiac Buick in Pembroke Ontario. I bought it from Dan in October 1988 and have enjoyed it being bone stock ever since. I have driven it to Florida for the winter, the last seven years. I love it just the way it is. In Jan/Feb 2016 a shop in Bonita Springs Florida told me my intake man was cracked so i had a spare blasted and took it to the shop. they said they had cleaned it out thoroughly - BS - two weeks later - bad engine knock. the shop said wrist pin - no biggy so I put in Royal Purple and drove it 1600 mile home. Bottom line - they didn't clean it out well and the oil pickup was 80% clogged. Rods, mains, pistons, cam turbo etc.; all shot. Hope to get it back from the machine shop soon 'cause i want to drive it to Fla again this Halloween.
So sad - but still a committed 1984 GN owner.
Have not been on this forum in a long time but owned mine since 99 restored in 2002 paint and interior redone in correct fabric full conversion to intercooled years ago I get thumb's up all the time I take her out
I know this is an ANCIENT thread but I have an 84 t type with standard cloth buckets. Pallex material like the later cars but brown. I believe it's original but don't know. What's the RPO codes for these options?
I am guessing the number of '84 GN's still around... well under 500. Here are some others... https://www.facebook.com/groups/143186562915735/
I have one as well...California car, 175k on it but super solid
Old thread. I've been away from the forum a while. Not sure why. I drive my 84 weekly. It's got 140k on it. Not stock but still hot air. I hit the drag strip maybe 5 times a year.
This August I won our local turbo event called turbo thunder. We we're bracket racing so I wasn't the fastest but I was super consistent and did accidentally pull a 12.80 on a 13 dial in. Luckily the other guy red lit.
This winter I'll tune it to run sup 12.5 and see how it likes that.
Minus 1 ... 9-11-16, She got rear ended and careened into the median. Parted the wreck, many usable parts went to '84 owners and the engine lives on in my '85.
Factory 0-60 same as a '64 Ford Galaxie 500XL with the dual 4BBL 427, oddly enough. So should whup it in the 1/4 mile. Those Fords were kinda heavy, def better mileage.
I have a 84 t top gn in the garage
Bummer... a beautiful example too.
I have an 84 gn as well
Ive been looking around and theres only a handful of 84's for sale the value is rising
