Turbo v-sick

1989 Prototype Grand Illusion

Recommended Posts

The wheels might be hard to find.  Did the 89s have the bumpers without the side reflectors?  

I think this was a 284 car.  I know it had a different intake, and the car made a lot more power.  So I assume there were other differences.  I think a bigger turbo . . .

kind of curious to know how the 284 was done... production units obviously didn't happen until 1991, so they either adapted a Chrysler 2.2turbo version(which was already a super small production run) or had something like a 282-284 hybrid or a legitimately 1 of 1 prototype, which seems unlikely.

Modified Trans am wheels, T28 disco potato, side reflector delete, body colour mirrors and a different intake plenum,

 

The whole rear bumper cover looks like it's shaped different. Like it tapers up more on the sides.

Recreating those bumpers would be a pain.  But it's doable.  I even have a junk bumper here to cut some filler panels out of...

"Modified Trans am wheels" - T/A wheels were 5x4.75 (120.7) and have a much different offset. Suspect either Western or Motor wheel just ran up a few sets of 5x115 & are 16x8 like my GTP. (Would have been working 91-92 designs in 88).

 

Do remember George had a blue 5-speed around then that I had trouble with the shift gate. OTOH I have NP shifting the GTP.
