I found a post with a picture of tailgate cover and believe it is a modification i have only seen one and can't find anything else
vintage fender light turned hood ornament?

It is a limited edition/ gt or is this false? what do i look for under the hood to know if it is a GT? I dont want to pay 5k for a fake gt

Is there something besides the intake manifold to look at because it says 2.4l turbo but could it be just bolted on?
Can you tell from the picture

Emblems can be added to anything. If it is a true limited, it'll have four-wheel disc brakes, the sun-roof is included but can be an option on standard. To find the turbo, look behind the engine down about half way - the air intake goes into it, and it'll be noted on the tach. Open the fuel cover door, does it say 'Premium Only'? If it does, it is a GT. I've not seen that paint job on a factory car, looks added; but you never know. Look for tale-tell signs of paint-over.

Interesting looking car. Although I don't care for the tire thing on the back; but to each their own...

That is a fake "Continental" add on. I have seen a few, it is NOT a factory item. The best way is to check on the gas fill cover, "Premium gas only" signify's TURBO. Turbo lite uses regular gas.

Look in the driver door for the label and build date? Confirm it is an 03. Looks like 04 Dream cruiser with the two tone??

If it is an 2003 it has to be a GT since the GT was the only model that year with the Turbo I believe. I can look in my sales brochure to confirm. In 04 they offered the Turbo Lite in the non-gt models.

Assuming it is a GT it should have wheel disc brakes, leather seats(Some GT's came with cloth) antilock brakes, traction control with switch.

Looking at the engine compartment, it's definately a GT turbo. Clues are the intake, and the routing of the hoses from the air filter housing, charge air to throttle body... Take a look at the front calipers. The turbo also has specific calipers with "Turbo" stamped on the top. So this is a first year GT, which is the Hi-Output turbo, with 215 horses. Not sure why it also has a Limited Edition tag on the hatch. As far as I know there wasn't an option to combine the GT model with an LE. It could be that the previous owner thought it would be cool to add it.
