L-Type vs P-Type

I had a question. I was reading on SupraForums that 82 Ltypes had NO fender flare, 14x5.5 wheels, and 85mph speedo. I have an 82, according to the VIN it is an L Type, BUT it has flares, 14x7, and 130mph speedo (analog dash). The original hatch and bumper were black, car was white. Has red cloth interior, and front windshield antenna. Am I confused or what? I thought it was an L, but maybe it is a P and the vin is wrong??? Is there anywhere else it will say the type?

Sure your wrote this down right?

25S would be the color code, my source doesn't list this code
LP21 is the interior code (leather something)
F292 is the rear axle (4.11 non LSD)
A43DL is the tranny code (automatic)

Usually the easy way to see if a car has been repainted is to look in the door jam up by the hinges. Usually nobody repaints this area.
Super Red (which is 3D1) is basically plain red. Super Deep Red is a much darker red. YS24 would probably be grey pinstripes, possibly burgandy. Besides I don't believe they had burgandy interiors till '85 though. Could be wrong on that one though.
