I just purchased a 1972 Firebird Formula 400, I think. The VIN # has both the U & T which tells me it is a Formula 400.
The Body by Fisher tag/sticker has style code 22387, telling me it is simply a 2 door coupe.
How shall I go about resolving this matter? Any suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks.

Something's wrong here.

You say the VIN has "U" AND "T"...? It can't be both, unless the "T" is the 5th symbol for engine code (which is for: 400, 4bbl. 250hp. The VIN translates as:
1st= 2 for Pontiac
2nd= U for Formula
3rd & 4th= are (probably in your case "87") for Firebird series
5th=engine (I have those in a chart; 13 different numbers)
6th= 2 for 1972
7th= plant letter code

See if the above is how your VIN reads.

As for the body tag, 22387= Base; 22487= Esprit; 22687= Formula; and 22887= Trans Am

It's never good that these don't match. I think I would call the person I bought it from for an explanation.

Good luck.
