Were there specific VINs dedicated to GTs?
I believe that my 242 was originally a DL (I could see the outline where the rear badge was removed), but it has a lot of GT-related parts. I've noticed that the VIN on mine is similar to a lot of these...

No, there is no known sequence for GT VINS, nor record known to anyone on here as to how many were made, only number of 242s in total.
Plenty folk have added the grill, interior etc fitted at some stage

Okay I figured that that was the case. Thanks.
Now that I've thought about it, I have reason to believe that my 242 was originally at some point an automatic transmission but had an m46 swapped in

Got in touch with the original owner I bought it from. He bought it white. He didn't have it painted. He's unsure if it was shipped white or the dealership painted it white. Engine bay, interior metal, trunk where white when I stripped it.
