Some colors were built all model years, some were one year only. I think you will find that year/miles/equipment & condition play a big role in pricing. Pacific Blue does seem to command a premium, but was a 1 year only low production color

He didn't get much recognition for the SSR - can't find his name anywhere in the hardcover book, or the Signature Series info on the 50 plus execs who signed the 25 Signature Series.

Ed Welburn was Director of Design during the SSR project, and got much of the publicity and credit. He signed Sig 6. William Davis (Sig 8) was Director of Design for Midsize Trucks. Glen Durmisevich, SSR Design Manager and Doug Ungemach, Chief Designer at ASC who was heavily involved in the functional design of the SSR, especially the roof module, signed Sig 10.

If Andre was personally responsible for approving colors, there's a lot of pi$$ed off GM dealers who would like to chat with him about his decision to approve Ultra Violet for production in 2004. Those GM dealers paid 65 - 138K for the 24 Signatures that were auctioned, with assurance from the bigwigs that no other SSRs would be built in that color.

Six months later, the value of their trucks tanked because there were now 1300 UVs out there, instead of the 25 originally guaranteed. At least there's now a name to attach blame to - never had that before.:thumbs
And on top of all that, all the hot chicks were flocking to the guys with the Pac Blues.......:harhar:
