question about GL models

I know the GL means cloth seats and that usually means manual. But I could have sworn I've seen a cloth power driver seat before. Anyone know? The reason I'm asking is there's a GL a ways from me in a salvage yard but I'm only making the drive if there's a chance the seat is power.

Also was the parcel shelf an option? I have never figured out a pattern to which models had it.

I have an 85T GL with electric leather seats and manual trans. The cargo cover (parcel shelf) came with mine new and it was not an option. It was part of the turbo GL package with leather

Restore it. Don't crush it. They don't make um like this anymore!

Black 1993 300ZX, NA, driven 6 months a year, well pampered
and
Dark Pewter 1985 300ZX Turbo just fully restored

Call the salvage yard before you go. Ask them if the car in question has a cloth/leather and a manual/power seat. Also ask them for (1) the carís VIN no. and (2) the model plate placard located on the driver's strut tower in the engine bay. The VIN no. and placard can be decoded using the link below to determine what the carís true identity is. Itís possible that the carís original factory specifications may have been modified by former owners over the years.

For 1984, when I bought my 1984-T, the GL trim level had manual cloth seats. The GLL trim level had a power driverís leather seat with the passengerís seat being manual and leather.

Other changes might have occurred to the seats from 1985-1989.
