SSR Branded Junk Titles

Updated 4.16.2019

I have had concerns about the accuracy of Title Designations, to the point I was considering cancelling this thread. When I began, I believed a JUNK TITLE represented a VIN that was forever eradicated, but there have been examples where a JUNK in one state became a Salvage or Rebuilt in another so this theory did not hold up as true.
This is as accurate as I can get, but please confirm your own sources if any information contained affects you or any considerations.
In the SSR VIN Registry (which I keep in my PC) I have a record of many with SALVAGE TITLES that I have confirmed (with reputable sources) have been "Parted Out", therefore will never be on the road again. Even though they are not JUNK Titles these will not be rebuilt I am including them with the Junk titles as it gives a better representation of the numbers destroyed.
To my knowledge, a rolling frame nor a complete body assembly do not retain the original VIN. My experience has been a marriage of body/frame receive a new VIN pertinent to the State in which it resides and in no way resembles the original VIN sequence.

I will try my best to keep an accurate record of what I deem to be VIN's that will not resurface, but it is difficult to guarantee 100% accuracy.
Plus, although I have researched everything I can think of, there is no doubt I have missed some as I began researching 5 years after the SSR commenced construction.
Note: Salvage companies who do not exceed 5 units per year need not register the VIN's with the National Motor Vehicle Title Registry so small salvage companies who have had SSR's through their facility and do not register them make the already extremely difficult task of tracking these even more difficult.
My point is, this is the best I can do without making it a career!
I should add that it is my opinion that many of the Salvage Titled SSR's documented in the Deceased Thread were or will not be rebuilt but history has shown that many recognize the SSR for it's collectibility and will rebuild them where if it were another vehicle it would be junked.

There were 32 MY2003EX VIN's which are included in the total number of SSR's produced. I have not confirmed them all but 99% sure all are gone - somehow #19 survived the initial destructions and was owned in the private sector for several years but I have since confirmed it has been parted out.
There were 3 more EX VIN's with complete numbers - 2 in MY2004 (one parted and I am told the second is still held by GM) and one in MY2005 (parted).
Although it was not a complete VIN (therefore not included as a part of the total 24180 SSR's built with complete VIN's) there is one partial EX VIN that survived - #6959EX - It began as a Redline, spent time with the Concept in Radar Blue, but wound up as the UltraViolet race driven Indy 500 Pace Truck, even though it was designated as backup Pace #2. Pace #1 (Signature #4) had electrical issues. #6959EX now resides at GM Heritage. Race driven Pace vehicles are normally conveyed to IMS but in this instance, the title could not be conveyed and much to their chagrin they have Signature #26 (Pace #3) As #6959EX does not have a complete VIN it would not be part of this list regardless.

Cash - I am using this unused Post of PaceGuys for the information at the bottom of Post 1, which is getting too long

JUNK TITLES
"CarFax" Description — A Junk Title is issued on a vehicle damaged to the extent that the cost of repairing the vehicle exceeds ~ 75% of its pre-damage value. This damage threshold may vary by State. The majority of States use this title to indicate that a vehicle is not road worthy and cannot be titled again.
*Some States treat Junk titles the same as Salvage* .

Dismantled Title —
The vehicle sustained major damage to one or more major component parts and the cost of repairing the vehicle for safe operation exceeds its fair market value.
**When a Dismantled title is issued, the vehicle may be used only for parts or scrap metal. It cannot be re-titled or returned to the road.

SALVAGED TITLES
CarFax Description:
A Salvage Title is issued on a vehicle damaged to the extent that the cost of repairing the vehicle exceeds ~ 75% of its pre-damage value. This damage threshold may vary by State. Some States treat Junk titles the same as Salvage but the majority use this title to indicate that a vehicle is not road worthy and cannot be titled again in that State. The following eleven States also use Salvage titles to identify stolen vehicles - AZ, FL, GA, IL, MD, MN, NJ, NM, NY, OK and OR.
**Any units followed by "REBUILT" are Branded Title SSR's that are known to have been repaired to State regulations and were back in service.[/COLOR]

REBUILT TITLE
CarFax Description:
A Rebuilt/Reconstructed vehicle is a salvage vehicle that has been repaired and restored to operation. These vehicles are often severely damaged before they are rebuilt and refurbished parts are typically used during reconstruction. In most States, an inspection of the vehicle is required before the vehicle is allowed to return to the road.

My Note:
Most Rebuilt Titles are former Salvage Titles that have been repaired and pass inspections meeting the licensing State's regulations.
VIN - MA32986 is an example of 2 SSR's being used to create one new REBUILT TITLE.
1GCES14H95B116539 SALVAGED TITLE - (Body destroyed) The rolling frame was used.
1GCES14H26B122149 JUNK TITLE - (Frame cut up) The body was used and placed on the #16539 frame to create an SSR titled in MA under a new VIN. - MA32986
Both original VIN's removed from the SSR VIN sequence.


Lemon Law Vehicle —
A vehicle with problems that has been repurchased by or had its price renegotiated with the manufacturer. The State marks its official records or issues a Title Brand for Lemon Law vehicles. Laws vary by State as to the specific requirements for a "lemon". Most manufacturers issue some buybacks that are not the result of Lemon Laws but rather a courtesy.

Manufacturer Buyback or Lemon —
A DMV or a state agency marks an official document or issues a Manufacturer Buyback/Lemon title when a vehicle has been repurchased by the manufacturer. Not all States issue manufacturer buyback titles and the specific requirements for a lemon law vehicle vary by state.

Total Loss Vehicle —
An insurance or fleet company declares a vehicle a total loss when a claim exceeds ~ 75% of its pre-damage value or if the vehicle is stolen and not recovered. This damage threshold varies by company. These companies typically take possession and obtain the title.
**Not all total loss vehicles result in a DMV-reported branded title. This may occur when an insurance company's definition of a total loss is different than the state DMV's definition for a branded title or when the owner of the vehicle is a self-insured company, like a fleet or rental company
