As I understand it.these are not DELETE options.They simply were not standard equipment,and not ordered at extra cost.

Well, it's just a Y84 with not many options on it. I'd just say the VIN is cool, but it's not like anything was deleted, it was more just whoever ordered the car couldn't afford to pay extra for power windows etc. 1979 was a very common year for Y84's, and 9000+ were made with the 403. Sure with the WS6 it's a bit rarer, but not by any major means, many people who had the money to spend on black paint and stripes normally would spend the extra couple of hundred bucks to get the WS6 pack too, there was a discount on the WS6 pack of you ordered the Y84. There was a forum user here with a Y84 that really was a "delete" car, it had a 301 4-speed (which was a credit option, meaning they paid you to take the 301, and the Y84 package normally came with T-Tops, however they opted to remove the CC1 option from the Y84 package, which is actually rare. That car has soooo little options (basically none just two delete options) and options which were worth less so that makes that a rare car.

A Y84 WS6 with not many options is just a... Y84 WS6

Oh now I get it from looking at your other posts, so it's a hardtop Y84? I didn't understand from first reading it, so it's not a power lock window etc delete, again it was just not ordered with those options. But you also mean that it was a T-Top delete car? That's a different story. Yes that is actually a delete. The standard Y84 package was about $1100+, but you could ask to have the CC1 option "deleted" and they would only change about $600 for the Y84 package. Yes that is rare for a 1979 Y84. There are approximately 20 (possibly/likely more) out of the ~10,000 Y84's they have made documented hard top Special Editions. They didn't come with many options as they were a bit of a poverty pack spec car, as people wanted the smokey and the bandit look but couldn't afford the sticker price, so shaved off options and didn't pay any extra to have anything ordered with it. So it's interesting it's a WS6 hardtop Y84, most hardtop Y84's I've seen have very few options, but a couple have had the WS6 pack too

Not trying de-value your car and I would agree it is most likely 1 of 1 with the lack of those options (although I personally thing T-Top delete are a lot more common), rare does not mean its desirable unless someone ordered it for racing and wanted to lighten the weight, etc. But they would not have gotten a 403 car.

I agree with the idea that the car was ordered either by the dealer for inventory or by the original owner as a low-cost black and gold SE.  I also agree that it’s likely not many were built like that but it’s a real stretch to say “1 of 1” and it doesn’t make it anymore desirable to a potential buyer (unless they too figure they can get it cheaper).  My old 76LE was a low option car but it did have the optional 455 4/speed.  The 79 equivalent would have had the W72 4/speed which would’ve potentially made it more desirable than a heavily optioned car.

There was a reply in the lobby section regarding the original owners brother. I believe it was ordered that way to save money. While it is an oddity and def a conversation piece, I dont think that adds a lot to the value. I would think it would be comparable to any other 79 s.e. in the same condition.

It was an expensive option if you just had to have it, the rest can be done without.
