My girlfriend's car is VIN # 1G6DW51Y3J9713170. I am the one responsible for keeping the car in roadworthy condition, so knowing what options came factory would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

When the car is a Hearse i think it is a little difficult to find out exactly how the car is done due to that i think that the hearse building is done by a seperat builder. However there schould be a plate in the engine compartment where the options from the manufacturer is coded, here you have a great site for you to start looking in http://www.100megsfree4.com/cadillac/cad1980/cad88.htm .
I see that the 6th and 7th numbers is't listed in the site but the body style (51) should mean "commersial chassi" or something like that.
