View Full Version : Differences between a 84 and 85 stars and stripes

I'm going to look at an 84 SS tomorrow. While I know it has composite stringers, what other changes were made between 83-85? I know 85 had a fiberglass floor, did the 84's also have it? The 84 interior was Changed from the vinyl to a jeep wrangler interior ( as the 85,86 and 87 also had it). From the naked eye it appears to be identical to an 85, but would like to hear from a couple of experts on the changes from 84-85. Thanks for the replys

The 85 is a year newer than the 84!

I bought a new Stars and Stripes in 1984. The 1985 model had orange speedometer needles instead of white. There’s the difference.

Well, I purchased the 84. Other than still having an aluminum fuel tank they seem identical.

My 1984 had a plastic tank.
