Default 91 Bonneville, SE or SSE?

I have a '91 Bonneville, but I am not sure if it'* an SE or SSE. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It'* pretty easy.... if it says SSE anywhere on it... it'* an SSE.

Check the trunk lid on the passangers side... or even on the dash by the glove compartment.

If it looks like my/Merlin'* sig, it'* an SSE.

If not, it'* otherwise.



Got a compass? Got rear air shocks? Got gold trim?

There'* a big black insulation-like material thing on the underside of the hood where it says SSE, but the steering wheel doesn't have any of the audio controls that come with an SSE, so I was a little confused.

I'd say she is not an SSE... might just have had the hood lining replaced.

What about SSE markings on the dash above the glove compartment or on the trunk lid?

Well, mine doesn't either (it shows in my sig pic, which I made from an existing pic of my car), because I got rid of them... they were all cracked up and broken when I got the car.

Nope, no SSE markings on the dash, or on the trunk lid. The trunk lid just says: 'Bonneville'.

The side pillar between the front and rear doors should have an SE or LE badge if its not a SSE.

Put an SE and and SSE beside each other and the differences are pretty clear.
