    If the car was built in '86 as an '87. It's an '87.

    You say "Dealer" If its NOT the factory Helms manual dont buy it. Chilton and Haynes give you just enough info to get you in trouble. I guess any manual is better than none but "factory" is the best way to go.

    Re: Which Service Manual would be best to get?

    ........... a "1987" car would have a build date of about 08/86 to about 06/87.

    That's why the new models are always introduced in July/August of the year preceding the "model year", and the manuals are written for that model year.
