Dunno about the #s in Canada, but the SSR is assembled completely by hand - there are no robotics on the assembly line with 2 exceptions - 1 robot that checks the body alignment after welding, and the other is the painter. All of the body welding is done by a person. Total production is quite slow at only 30-40 a day on average - that is, when they're actually in operation.

If there is a group tour arranged during the final weeks of production, you should consider going. It was really cool to see that at the August Homecoming.

What thread was that in?

I guessed ~10% might have come into Canada. 600 or so is way lower...only ~.3% based on total of 21371 from a previous thread).

So using the color breakdown of model years from the other thread then your yellow 04 is only 1 of (26%x361) 94 and my Redline 04 is only 1 of (29%x361) 104.:party

Mine should be 1 of 23 yellow 03s in Canada. Somehow, I suspect there are more yellows in Canada than red or black. It seemed every dealership I checked when they first came out had a yellow on display.

Frank, 605 units would mean 3% of SSRs are in Canada, not .3%

Blue,

Has yours been preferenced yet? - that should be the first indication that the order has been accepted by GM. That's the stage I'm at now. I'll go in next week to see if anything further has developed.

Canadian Early Launch SSR s

When I went to pick up my SSR at GM Canada there were 5 SSR s available.
( This was fall 2004 )
3 were early launch Car Show trucks and 2 were exec driven units.
Of the early launch trucks there were 3 colours represented.
Smokin was Vin # 101
Yellow was Vin # 358
Red was Vin # 201 ( Mine )
There are presently 2 6 speeds available as exec trucks.
The Blue 6 Speed was at the Homecomming, driven bt a Gm Canada Vice Pres. and his wife.

Flassh, the dealer sent me an e-mail from GM showing a target build for the vehicle of February 20, 2006. Confirmed it was a sold unit to the dealer. No specific reference to any preference #.

Blue,

Went to my chevy dealer this morning - he's also showing a tentative build "Week of February 20"

Had him check inventory status for new SSRs in Canada.

His system is showing 12 new 05s and 16 new 06s in Canada. 6 of those are 6 speeds.

Autotrader is showing 20 used in total in Canada - 19 of those are at car dealers, one is private sale. Hard to come up with anything more accurate regarding total used for sale.

Did he give you the list or did you note the locations. Just wondering where the 05's are located. I know of 1-05 in RImbey, AB.

I didn't write them down, but any dealer can pull up the same information in a few seconds. Did check to see if there were any silver up/black lower, and none in Canada. Two had black upper, silver lower.
