    How rare is my Caddy, and what options does it have?

    If you are wondering how many of your car were built, here is your chance. This tool will tell you production numbers, as well as options. It will then tell you how many cars were produced with your exact combo of options/trim/colors. One of my cars is one of one. Doesn't make it valuable, just interesting...

    Check out your cars, and post up your interesting finds...

    Re: How rare is my Caddy, and what options does it have?

    I tried the VIN search back in December when it was posted in the lounge. My VIN still isn't in their database, but I was able to search for my car's rarity based on the RPO codes. They don't seem to have that option any more; they used to say how many other '89 Cadillac Broughams had RPO "VK3" but now they just say VK3 is a front license plate mounting bracket.

    The RPO search turned out that my car was a 1 of. The one of notoriety seemed inaccurate to other members posting in the thread, who were able to get VIN data results. When I did the RPO search, I noticed that when I searched ARL (which all '89 Broughams shared as a common RPO), I only got 1,296 matching results. There were almost 30,000 Broughams produced in '89 and in December, and Comp Nine had only 1,296 on record. My car was 1 of 1 of 1,296 of 30,000, but came out as a 1 of special.

    At the top of the page, if you get results off a VIN search, they will tell you how many cars were in their database, that they are comparing your VIN/RPO codes to in order to determine your car's rarity.

    Found out my car has factory alarm, tow package and six speaker bose system w/woofer in the door. I dont have a fob for the alarm and the dash light doesnt blink, how do I get this back?

    Not sure what the 90s are like, but the earlier ones with alarm didn't have a fob. They did have a "Security System" amber dash light, though...

    If you have a 1990 RWD Brougham . . .

    Keyless entry was not an option until 1993.

    There was never a BOSE stereo option on any RWD Caddy. You probably have the upgraded CD/tape player option, which came with 5.5" speakers mounted in the front doors.

    Wow, cool link! My car was one of 4 built with the same options. My interior is 'dark maple red' but my exterior is 'medium rosewood metallic.'

    At the top of the results page, below the "Vehicle/Year/Build Date" box, did it say "Found XX,XX# vehicles matching your year and model in our database"? If so, how many cars?

    According to this:

    Rarity...

    There are 1 1987 FLEETWOOD BROUGHAM 4 DR RWD vehicles (0.031%) matching your exact options list. There are 1 (0.031%) with at least as many options.
    One of a kind! wow!

    VIN's for our 1980 Cads aren't in the system, and don't have anything newer to check out! Ah well!

    Neat though, so keep posting results.

    I don't think any of these RPO code look up sites are accurate. According to one of them my old '88 FWD Fleetwood was equipped with a four cylinder diesel engine. I can assure you it was not.

    Re: How rare is my Caddy, and what options does it have?

    Don't forget, some codes have been duplicated over the years. For example, the base engine in the 94-96 Caprice was the 4.3 liter V8, RPO L99. That just happens to be the same code for the base V8 engine in the new Camaro ;-)

    Try the site I posted, it is better than the old ones.
