Received this RC car I found online today. Look at the rear spear (found on the prototype, I think) and check out the the date printed on the bottom! Thoughts?

it's only money...........Vetteman makes a nice [replacement].........for what Gm didn't do. It was the first after market part I bought. I saw one on an ssr on an ebay auction........I knew when/if I got an SSr that would come next. If you only buy one thing for outside of your ssr that has to be it?

I have :silver: :purple: & :yellow: Concepts (not RC) - same rear end with back up lights in the bumper and the rear spear.
Yours does not have the mirrors at the top of the A-Pillar - they may have broken off while off-roading (or never there)
Mine are Maesto - made in Thailand

I'd say never there, no indication or mark where they may have been. What do you make of the date "2000" on the bottom. Were they licensed that long before actual production in 2003?

Yes most of the SSR die casts were licensed and sold long before production started in 2003!

The SSR was revealed as a concept at the 2000 Detroit auto show. Many of the die casts used the 2000 year moniker.
