1. Build date. E=1984. 06=6th week. A=1st day??
2. 19L Exterior paint. 19-black L=lower
3. 19U Exterior paint.19-black U=upper
4. 60H Interior trim. 60-light sand gray H=Empress cloth
5. AQ9-Lier-Seigler bucket seat
6. Secret assembly code. Denotes option package
7. CCL-Clear Coat Laquer
8. W11- Regal T-Type

I'm not 100% sure on how to read that build date.
And I haven't deciphered the secret assembly codes. I've lost count but IIRC I have seen at least 13 numbers used with that goofy shamrock stamp.

Eric,
U R DA MAN!

Now I am confused.
#8 = T-Type with Lier S. seats? (Wrong again uh?)
 
In item number 1, I believe "06" is for June and "A" is for the first week of the month. :)
 
All 84 GN's are technically T-Types. The GN was an option on T-Types only. And the Lier-Seiglers were an option for the T-Type but standard on the GN. I screwed up on the interior. 60H has Brandon cloth with Sierra leather inserts. I think in a previous post I said the 84 GN code was 60C. It is in fact 60H just like your tag says. This would be the only way to distingish(sp) a GN from a T-Type with the L-S seat as the trim code for the T would be 60C.

Eric,
So the 60H code is in fact "Lt Sand gray"?

I thought that #7 was "CC1" which denotes t-tops.

I think your right. I was thinking the 1 was a L but after comparing it to the other L I can see what it is now. I'm going to have to check some of the cowl tags I have as the ones I have pictures of show something there and they are all off of solid roof cars. I have a few astroroof Rivieras and I'll check to see if the CF5 code is there as well.

I got this off the net, maybe Turbofish can verify its accuracy.

I have 60H, 60I & 609.
 
Gary, Those appear to be codes from a newer vehicle.
Yours should be the same as Jerry's.
60H-Light Sand Gray=Brandon cloth/Sierra leather insert
60I-Light Sand Gray interior
609-LSG Seat Belts

I only know the interior trim code for an 84GN. This was tricky and took lots of Teamwork from an original owner and OEM parts expert to figure it out. :biggrin:

Contact Sherwin Williams Automotive division.
They have paint chips to get you the exact code.
 
Build date

Hi Jerryl,
I think that date could be construed as January 6, 1984. I believe GM used the alphabet for the months as well as the years. I could be wrong,but it does make sense, as the date would be reversed.

The code for a 84 would be 60 and the interior trim is 60H.
The code for a 85-87 GN would be 82 and the interior trim would be 82C.
