LE, as applied generally within automotive-dom, equates to Limited EDITION, or Luxury EDITION.

1LE, as chosen by GM in '88, was NOT "One - Limited Equipment"...it was simply a 3-digit alpha-numeric as used by GM for ALL equipment and options. Just as Z28 was a rather randomly-chosen Option Code, "next on the list". Coulda been Z29...or W86...or... And the "Z" in Z28 is NOT reference to Zora Arkus-Duntov, as a certain "wives tale" had it...

There is NO DIRECT MEANING for the "LE" in "1LE"...
