This is news to me, they had Sunbird Hatchbacks in 1977, wouldn't it have been a carry over? It was new to Lordstown for 78... and they did focus on coupes first.

Super Juicy info... so no worries.. I see now that the E designation.. ie; "2E27A8U543210" is for an economy model, makes sense. They added the E designation to the base model hatchback in 1980.


Of course you are correct that they made HB's in 77, my bad it was late when I was posting these pages. Still it suprises me how little info on the HB models there is in the book. I do know that the Coupes outsold the HB body style most if not every year.
