The cladding if it's all there and undamaged is easily worth more than $1500 as individual pieces to sell to someone restoring a certifiable Typhoon.
Which year is the one you should have already bought.
Since the Typhoons were final assembled outside a GM facility they have unique vin numbers.
is the four digit series number ranging from 0001 to 2497
for 1992 Typhoons and 0001 to 2200
for 1993 Typhoons. That last four number was assigned by Production Automotive Services (PAS) in Troy, Michigan. who actually did final assembly of the Typhoons.
That number, with last 4 filled in, should also be on the PAS Decal – Located inside driver’s door jam next to door latch pin. Only a certified fool would have removed that door jam decal. The number on that decal should match the number on the dash vin tag under the windshield and the Glovebox SPID Decal – Located on the bottom of the inside of the glovebox. The SPID should also have the RPO code LB4 for the vin Z engine they left Shreveport with. PAS installed the turbocharged engine, but the truck was still identified as an LB4. A True Typhoon also has to be one of these color combinations:
Black w/ Black (1262 total)
Black w/ Gray (130 total)
Frost White w/ Gray (518 total)
Apple Red w/ Gray (345 total)
Bright Teal w/ Gray (132 total)
Forest Green Metallic w/ Gray (82 total)
Aspen Blue w/ Gray (28 total)
Radar Blue w/ Radar Blue (2 total)
Raspberry Metallic w/ Raspberry Metallic (2 total)
Black w/ Black (1,008 total)
Black w/ Gray (98 total)
Frost White w/ White (532 total)
Frost White w/ Gray (115 total)
Apple Red w/ Apple Red (77 total)
Apple Red w/ Gray (101 total)
Forest Green Metallic w/ Gray (210 total)
Garnet Red w/ Gray (24 total)
Royal Blue Metallic w/ Gray (35 total)
Radar Blue w/ Radar Blue (1 total factory test color truck )
These are the experts you should be asking:
GMC Syclone, Typhoon, & Sonoma GT History and Data
Just don't tell them where it is located or any other identifying info or it will not be there tomorrow.
BTW everyone who ever put a 5.7 in a 1st gen says the engine came out of a Corvette.
If you do buy it and need to replace the squeaky engine, whatever you do do not put an LS engine in it. The correct engine from a 1992 -1993 Corvette would be a 1992 or 1993 LT1. You want it to appear to be from the factory and that was the only GM engine offered those 2 years. Sort of going Typhoon one step better. A 6 speed would be spectacular, but getting it to connect to the transfer case could be a nightmare. Too bad the 92-93 4l60E were the first and worst years of production. A good tranzman can fix that.
Or did the PO do something dumb like a TH350 when he installed the "Corvette" engine?
