GM delivered approximately 930 trucks in October, according to their info. I would assume they can do the same numbers every month.
Projections are for 12000+ units for 04, so those numbers seem to make sense.
Don't get taken in by dealers or EBay sellers trying to bend you over - the initial insanity will be over with fairly quickly. I've been tracking the SSRs sold on Ebay.
There are about 35 available today, and so far, I've tracked about 80 that have come and gone. The ones with reserves over 50000 are not getting any bids. Bidding on those with reserves is stopping in the 49000 range - highest was 51490, lowest was 46000.
The recent sales were at 49258, 49100, 50000, 50000. Two signatures sold this week - one at 74000, the other at 72022.
I wouldnt think that 100 yellows is correct. I saw 3 on a transport going toward Austin Texas about a week ago. Also, look on Ebay....lots of yellow there. Also, there were some great photos at the plant about a month ago that showed all colors awaiting final inspection and shipping. You can go to GM buypower and put in various zip codes around the country and there are several yellows in stock at dealerships with ID numbers to prove it. I have a yellow coming too (lol, hopefully) and 100 would be wonderful. Also, seems almost everyone is ordering the 1SB. You cant hardly find a 1SA out there. Check Ebay and check GM buypower for 1SA's. Mine is a !SA.....but then again I didnt want to pay $1900 for a 6CD and heated seats. I dont think a !SA is worth more, but it definitely isnt worth less. I dont think the buyers even care which it is. When you go to sel, now or later, the options wont make a bit of difference in my opinion. They are nice to have but Im conservative I guess. Good luck to everybody. Cheers!
My ssr was built on 11/05/03 with vin number of 1319.It didn,t go on a train until 9/16/03.Dealer expects it on the 23th.I can,t believe its taking this long. Dealership is in New orleans,They have been great to deal with.Some ssr,s must have been sent to dealers on trucks.
