Yes, it is an option designation. Just like DL/GL. Most GL10's have all power accy's, nicer interior and power moonroofs, in '84 they came with non-power sunroofs as an additional option. In the EA82 models most/all Turbo models had all the GL10 options.

-better front seats with height adjustment
-black trim (door handles and such) on 4wd models
-slightly larger tires(this one never gets mentioned, but it says so in my owners manual)
-rear head rests(in wagons, at least)
-lots were turbo, but not all
Oh hell, I know theres more, but my brain just turned off.. someone else will have to complete the list.. I have learned that when the brain turns off, its time to stop typing

2wd GL's have 175/70R13.
2wd DL's have 155/70R13.
4WD GL's have 185/70R13.
4WD DL's have 175/70R13.
Not all GL10's have rear headrests. (this is an additional option)
Things like roof racks and rear air deflectors on wagons are also additional options.
The following info is taken directly from the '84 and '86 sales brochures.
These are beyond the standard GL options
AM/FM ETR 6 speaker stereo,
PW(only available as PW Pmirror option pkg)
Sunroof-pop up style.
Turbo coupes came with all the GL10 options and the Turbo wagons came in GL or GL10.
The power moon roof was only available in the turbo.
GL10's were turbo's except in the 4dr sedan which had the option of non-turbo.
Digi dash only came with the turbo's.
Power door locks.(Were standard but available on other models.)
Folddown rear seat.
Height adjustment on drivers seat only.
Electronic height control for suspension.
That's about it.

GL-10 sedans also usually came with the folding armrests. My window sticker lists N/C for the rear headrests, (wagon) digidash, intermittent multiple-time-delay wipers, etc. The only options were the Rusty Jones protection group (ugh), the upgraded stereo/cass, and "special paint" in Mica Red Pearl.

As for the RX, there wasn't much of a price difference but the RX was only available with a couple of colors (and in one body style, coupe or 3-door, depending on year).

Also had the Trip Computer, Power Moonroof, PW/PL
Didn't have Turbo, Height Adjustable Seat, or ride height adjustment.
That was my first soob, and my first manual tranny. I miss that car...

As far as I know, GL-10 means it's loaded up. You will only find it on EA82 cars as far as I know but there was rumor to be on EA81 but no one has proved it as far as I know.
had one for parts, 1983 sunroof and power windows 2wd 5 spd
i had the badge, but the gl10 part broke off.

Oh - and has anyone actually seen an EA81 wagon that was badged as a GL-10? I want pics, cause I have never seen one, and I don't believe they existed. I have seen coupe's, and sedans - plenty of them in fact, but NEVER a GL-10 wagon in the Gen 2 body style. Maybe I just haven't seen one?

this came out of a GL-10 Sedan...
and they all live in Mountain Grizzly now.
I also have an extra set of panels from a sedan, and the front seats (same cloth) are in my Turbo Brat now.
the Turbo Brats never came with the digital dash thankfully....
and if you ever end up parting out that coupe Ken, I'll take the door panels

It confirms that the GL-10 package existed in an EA-81 and lists the options that it came with.
I think your wife is right.
A little upholstry cleaner wouldn't hurt the griz any?---Well it might take away a little character.
82 Hatch,.....transforming (no options)...:temper:

So superfly we went 7 hours with a 4 month old, from PA to New York to get one we paid 380$ for on E-Bay and drove it home! 7.5 hours (coz we got lost in the bronx after dark!)

4WD 4SPD D/R
Things that are different....
One car has a roof rack and a rear deflector
The other one has a factory block heater and finned rocker trim.
The door panels are the same as my '83 GL.
So I know they exist.

- Upgraded interior (height adjustable driver's seat, fold-down rear seat in sedans, rear headrests in wagons, cloth headliner)
- Digital Dash with Trip Computer
- Gravel Guards in front of the rear wheels.
- Blackout trim panel between tail lights on sedans.
- Power Windows, Power Mirrors, Power Locks.
I've never seen an EA82 GL-10 without ALL of those things. Most have other options as well, but they all start with those basics.
