Thread: VIN check

  1. #11
    I found an '06 with the following codes:

    226 SPORTS SUSPENSION SETTINGS
    710 M LEATHER STEERING WHEEL
    716 M AERODYNAMICS PACKAGE II
    760 INDIVIDUAL HIGH-GLOSS SATIN CHROME
    767 PERFORMANCE-PACKAGE
    770 INTERIOR TRIM TRIPS, ALU SILER CUBE
    787 M LT/ALY WHEELS DOUBLE SP.135 W MIXED T

    This one is a convertible/automatic. It doesn't have the 772 code (Interior Trim Alu Black Cube) and it doesn't have the 775 code (Individual Roof Lining Anthracite) presumably because it's a soft top. This is a ZHP, yes?

    Yup, it's a ZHP, the 767 code is indicative of that. Presumably it doesn't have black cube, because it has 770 for silver cube instead. I'm not sure about it not having 775 but that would make sense given it's a vert.

    Yes it's a ZHP = code 767

    It says you have the silver trim. code 770 which you've listed.

    My vert doesn't list code 775 either but it has a roof liner

    Thanks Pedro!

    BTW, is an automatic trans a huge minus on a ZHP? I would rather an MT but this seems like a good deal so far.

    I would say so. These automatics are before the time they were smooth enough and fast enough to have any kind of benefit, and they're worse on gas. The ZHP falls into the generation where manuals were still better than automatics, which isn't the case with today's cars.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    and there's a rarity factor also. In the US, 6MT's accounted for only 19% of all the convertibles, so they're a bit harder to come by

    you can see how rare a car is by it's particular body style, transmission type, and the interior and exterior color here in the production data - see post #1 http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...-Numbers/page2

    Auto vert were by far the most produced of the verts. I have one, put Dinan Step s/w on it, sprint booster, and paddle shifts (among other mods). Makes it more fun to drive, but still ok in the infamous LA traffic. Agree, manuals are much better for these cars. The auto isn't bad, just not as quick as modern paddle shifters.
