in my search for the production numbers for specific models of Cavalier Z24's with a 5 speed manual transmission,(still looking). I ran across this website.
It is definitely worth your time. You can find out a lot there,and can search by year make and model of GM products.
You should try to get in touch with the folks who run the Compnine website.. they used to have an option on their site that would tell you how many of your model year were 5 speed, automatic, colour, etc... even gave you a % rarity function (a word I'm afraid to use any J-body car). It was removed but the rest of the VIN data still exists.
I ran my J's VINs back in the day, but sadly I don't think I kept the pages so I don't recall specifics. I might have saved some of the data in my files when I was curious about that kind of thing... I'll have to have a look though.
Thanks for the info.
I sent them and email.
Let us know what they have to say Steve, I'm curious.DRIVING FORCE FABRICATIONS
