Need help on a 3rd Gen VIN decode...

1G1FP87FXGL161424


It's a red IROC, but I need to figure out year and paint codes.


The owner is a vet from Nam who is only one of 4 survivors of a plattoon that got wasted at Khe Sahn, won the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, melted two M60 barrels.....hell of a man and hero. He bought this car with the intent to restore it many moons ago and have additional touches for his brothers in arms added, but it never happened. Now he thinks he can't afford to redo the car and I am doing a little research to se what I can do on the down low.


Too bad Overhualin is over!

Thanks!

Edit: paint codes your not going to get from the vin. hopefully the car still has an intact door tag.

Carfax and vin says its a 1986 meaning it has the 305-190 (LB9). Your going to need the door tags to get the color though.

Thats where it is most of the time, but I don't have any specific knowledge of a 86 Camaro.
