    That's a tad unusual I must say as the plastic trim around the air vents is still black which it was on all the early 86 built vehicles. By the time 87 rolled around the plastic was the same colour as the rest of the Instrument Cluster cowl plastic, only the vents themselves were left black. It also has the black outer door handles (not chrome) which indicates its a late 86 onwards build.

    As far as the Production Broadcast sheet is concerned I would also look underneath all the carpet sections as it's not always in the exact same place in every vehicle built. Many times it was slid underneath the RH rear carpet section or the drivers floor. It just depended on who was on that part of the production line on that day if you get what I mean. Some times the PB sheet was even screwed up and thrown in the bin. BTW my VL never had it placed in the car either and I had my VL from new so it had never been mucked around with whatsoever.
