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?

its odd that my car is an 83 because i have the flip up door handles and the wrap around turn signals....i checked on the door and it says november of 83...also the back up lights are set to the inside of the liscence plate and i also have supra going all the way across
a november 83 car would actually be considered an 84 model, just like with new cars, the next years come in the fall. I have a 5/84 84 model and a 10/84 85 model, its crazy but thats how it goes.....
