Umm, my old 87 5kCST had chromed door lock mechanisms(well, actually,
a chrome "piece" in the door handle.) The only difference in trunk
lids was the relocation of the release button. Non-CS models in any
year had black middle rear panels, all CS models had orange/red back
There was also a slight, but insignificant, change in various things,
like the throttle body is a little different.
Someone pointed out that I skipped over the 89/90 200's, and that's
right, I did sell them short, so my recommendation changes to "any
turbo type 44 after 1987."

In terms of:
-replacement parts(try finding a V8 manual tranny!)
a turbo car is a much better idea.
