I have a 1999 white hardtop y87 5 speed car and i was wondering if it has any rarity. I can find how many y87s were built and how many 5 speed were built but not how many cars were built with both options. This is my first time posting on the forum and im 17 with my first car, please help me out.

As a v6 owner myself, I can say that even though we prize our v6 f-bodies, they are mostly common place.

This is as much detail as you will find any where.  Not what you are looking for.  

 

”Rarity” is a highly subjective concept.  On the Compnine website, my 94 Formula shows up as the only one of its kind.  That happens primarily because it was certified for use in California.  Not something that adds any value.  It all depends how many build options are taken into account, and CompNine considers about 50 in determining the number of cars that are identical.

I figured that it does not have rarity as in valuable, just thought I would ask if there were many 5 speed Y87 cars made for my own knowledge. Thanks for the compnine website.
