Here is another one.

Non tinted rear and side windows. I've heard of them but not sure they were available.
I saw one at the wrecker a week ago, I have seen two of them so far.

I have also seen one with no windows...It may have been custom, but it looked so clean and well done I thought it was factory. I dont know who would do all that work, I mean, the body work was incredible.

I have also seen some without a roof rack at all, dunno if this is rare or not.

This is a rumor list.



6. M5OD 5 speed trans.-*Confirmed* Most if not all 1990 models will have this as a manual trans. 1989 saw the last of the FM146's.



All I can think of at the moment.

Of the 5 '90 BII's I have owned, they have all had the FM146.... I guess I have bad luck. They did however have a D35.(All but one)

Really. Could be the late to last few that got the M5OD. I've seen atleast 2.

The one non D35 was prolly an early production 90.

So they did make them.

No windows as in a filler panel/Panelside. That would be different.

Not all had the roof rack. I had an 89 that was rackless. My 87 was too.

That reminds me of the non tire carrier ones too. Buddy of mine has one as a parts truck. I might steel that hatch for mine if I don't finish my split gate.

Yeah, panelside.

Yeah, I have seen the ones with no spare tire rack, one at the wrecking yard had the OE spare under a cover on the....drivers side I think, I think the interior panel was even changed to accomodate the spare.

That's another rare one. I've heard of them but have never seen proof of it.

Yes, but not all of them had it. Like was said above there was a bracket inside the cab on the drivers side rear panel that the tire bolted to. I don't think you'd fit anything more than a 215/75 in there.

I wish I had taken a picture of it.

You would be lucky to get that size tire on the interior spare tire mount; and then you would have that much less cargo space.
