RPO - Regular Production Options

This is one very long Build Sheet containing all RPO's I have been able to extricate from the posted Build Sheets.
I have made notes on observations within and following the "Build Sheet" regarding changes or variations in terminology.
A couple RPO's are only slightly out of order to be easier compared with related RPO's - Gauges & Wheel finishes.
Red HiLites - Means standard fare on all SSRs.
** - Means refer to notes below

1GCES14---B1----- (RPU's - Regular Production Units)

Signature Series Notes

1. Code HTR is missing for unknown reasons.
HTQ - SIGNATURE SERIES #17 "CHEVY ROCK & ROLL TOUR SSR”
HTR - "Missing"- Missed in error I presume
HTS – SIGNATURE SERIES #18 “HARD ROCK HOTEL SSR”
This is unfortunate as the 25 letters A-Y would have been perfect for the 25 Signature SSR’s and the “HTZ” code only on Signature #50.
If HTR had been used #25 would have had “HTY SIGNATURE #25 MEDIA EVALUATION SSR” as it should have, and the Rick Wagoner UV #50 would have had the “HTZ-SPECIAL ORDER-NON SIG SERIES” code to itself
2. There was no “H” code on Signature #26. It is unconfirmed at this time if #26 has badging.
#26 has a PRC code as do the 25 Signatures
3. PRC - PRICE RESTRICTION CODE – This code was placed on the Signature Vehicles designated for eventual sale by auction. PRC was placed on SIGNATURES #2 through #25 AND #26 but not Signature #1 as it was destined for the Heritage Center.

4. R6B - SPECIAL ORDER IDENTIFIER SSR – This was on Rick Wagoner's #3B000050 for its' special badge.
The R6B code was also placed on the last 200 Final Production Runs, but was referred to as R6B - END OF PRODUCTION BADGING.

5. I have yet to determine the differential in the springs as they do have different RPO's from Regular Production Units.

General Notes:

14P - CHROME PLATED WHEELS - Introduced approximately 4/1/2004 at about VIN 4B108500.
However, early MY2004 VIN's 4B103068, 69 & 70 in the MY2003 sequence that were built 12/22/2003 as introductory units for MY2004 had Chrome Plated Wheels placed on them. They were not offered as an option at this time.

BNK – ENGINE COVER - This RPO is not on any Build Sheet. Perhaps it is considered part of the JJA - POWER TRAIN DRESS SUBASSEMBLY INSTALLED
**A conversation with Bob walczyk revealed that GM did not originally intend to have an engine cover but it was felt the engines needed to be covered up. We feel the BNK engine cover became part of the JJA

BCP - BHP Engine Cover Inserts were not offered in MY2006.
In MY2005 the BHP was included in the VXK & VXM Body Color Packages.

GT5 – REAR AXLE - 4.10 RATIO - This RPO is noted in the GM Service Manual but never offered on an SSR.

JJA - PT DRESS SUBASSEMBLY INSTALLED- ASC did the power train (engine) dress up, hence (sub)assembly. (Also see BNK above)
JJA - I have noted this as being on every SSR but it is not on the 5 Signatures that were built at ASC (nor 7 of the first 8 MY2003 EX VINs but they were VS7 NON-SALEABLE)

RAE - HARD CARGO STORAGE BINS - Not offered in MY2006
R6B - SPECIAL ORDER IDENTIFIER SSR – Stated as such on the Wagoner #50 but most often stated:
R6B - END OF PRODUCTION BADGING
The R6B Code was only noted on Signature #50 until near the end of the Final Production Run for reasons yet to be determined. The last 200 FPR's have both the R6K - SSR FINAL PRODUCTION UNIT and the R6B - END OF PRODUCTION BADGING RPO's on the Build Sheets. It is unclear to me why GM felt the need to place both these RPO's on the Build Sheet as they appear redundant, especially this close to end of the Final Production Run.

VG8 - NOTICE TO BUYER LABEL - I believe this is an emissions label for California delivered SSR's as it is always linked with the YA7 - CALIF. ASSY. LINE EMISSION TEST and YF5 - 50 STATE EMISSIONS - RPO'S.

Z49 Canadian FPR’s do not have the R6K (FPR) Code noted on the Build Sheet.

1SA – MY2003-05 Base Model
1SB – MY2003-05 Preferred Equipment Group
1SS - MY2006 Base Model-Same as 2003-05 1SA
2SS – MY2006 same as 2003-05 1SB
3SS – MY2006 - 2SS plus satin boards and auxiliary gauges

Thank you Cash that is massive. I noticed one code in particular GT5 – REAR AXLE - 4.10 RATIO, I guess it goes without saying that some SSRs may already have a 4.10 Ratio rear axle?

That is some great information you have compiled Cash, we sure appreciate your efforts!!!
Thanks Greg & Lynn (RedCat). It meant for many nights of going to bed:crazy
Analyzing a thousand or so Build Sheets really takes some concentration.

The GT5 RPO is in the GM SSR Service Manual. I had forgotten I put that in, and believe I shall remove it.
I am 99.9% sure there was never one factory built with this.

That list is so long it is tough to edit so I will be making minor amendments as required.
Please feel free to point anything out if you notice an irregularity.:)

Good job on accumulating the information.

I know it sounds tres bizarre, as to what will get some people excited, but when I noticed this RPO, it was damn exciting.:D Note to self: Must get a life.:lol

D25 - MIRROR O/S LH & RH, REMOTE CTL, ELECTRIC, HEATED W/TURN SIG IND

As far as I know, Signature #1 & 4 are the only SSRs factory built with the Directional Indicators in the mirrors.
I have asked PaceGuy if at all possible to get a picture confirmation.

5.3.2011 I found a source that indicates there were 5 with the D25 RPO, still to be confirmed. The #5 makes me question if it wasn't the first 5 Signatures that were hand built at ASC prior to the balance being built at LCC.:)

10.6.2011 - Pictures have revealed Signature 4 does not have turn signals in the mirror.

OK - your next mission, should you decide to accept it, would be to document which Signatures received polished (not chromed) aluminum stock wheels.

Signature 4 was photographed at the auction (p 168 of An American Original) with polished wheels. Not sure if any others got them. If so, there should be a unique code for that option.

The other interesting tidbit to drive you to distraction, would be to uncover how the center caps were finished.:jester

Painted wouldn't work, and chromed would look quite obviously brighter than the polished aluminum of the wheels.

Just wondering.:glol

Nice to know I have the only SSR ever built with option HTL:)

Cash :
with all of the diging you do , is there any way you can find out what # silver I have ? How many where made befor mine? Since they started making them:silver: in 2004 ,I was woundering just what #:silver: I have? & I thought with all your nolage on SSR's you might be the one to ask. My born on date is 1-22-2004 # 4261

! :agree ! :agree ! :agree ! Great Stuff, Cash!

One question . . . when do you find the time and discipline?
I cut back on my holidays.
I left on a trip to the coast last night at 8pm and got back about 6pm today!
Now I feel completely rejuvenated!:banana :skep :yawn

Raider Keith;:silver: I think you have my biuld sheet? If you can do it ? thank you in advance.
Keith, I really can't help you with that as I don't have the proper access.
What I can tell you.
Last 2003 VIN - 3B103361
Your 2004 VIN - 4B104261
You are the 900th 2004, (almost that is :lol)
There are some early MY2004 in the MY2003 VIN sequence, at least 4 that I am aware of.
I know 2 of these are :silver:, (quite likely test units for the colour addition.)
Of the 900 other MY2004's I only have 110 VIN's documented.
Only 5 of those are :silver: totalling 7 that I have in my records prior to yours.
If you subscribe to a theory of percentages (110 being +/- 12% of 900).
This would mean 7 divided by 12% = 58 :silver: prior to yours. But that is only theoretical.
Without having the ability to run the Build Sheets I am missing, the best I can do is guestimate.
Based on those percentages I believe you could be about #60. Just a wild guess!:)

BTW, for interest sake, we know from BYERS "Last of" Thread there were 127 :purple: built during the same period.

Thank You;Cash
I knew you would be the one to ask. I could be as low as #8, or as high as #59, I think I'm going tell my friends that I think it is one of the first 10:silver: made. :)
Raider Keith;:silver: & thank you again, Cash

Hopefully it is more reader friendly now.

Code R6Z?

Hey Cash, INCREDIBLE job!!!

Just for fun I tried matching the Service Parts Identification list in my glove-box to yours to my build-sheet. One code was missing; R6Z. On my build sheet, it shows up as "R6Z SLM" with no text descriptor. Numerically, the next code is R7C - EXPEDITE PROCESSING OF ORDERS and SLM is STOCK ORDERS, so I'm wondering if it had to do with order processing of some sort... Of course, sequence doesn't necessarily mean anything;)

Any thoughts? Oh yeah, I'm as clear as mud on whether I was REALLY supposed to get a hitch-insert or not... Some got a hitch with only the Z82 code (like me):skep

Thanks "If yT Fyrs" (burn the tyres!):D
I don't want what I think about R6Z to seem as a statement of fact, but rather an assumption of sorts.
Yours (1GCES14P_4B108480) is a Z49 Canadian Build.
The Z49 Canadian Build Sheets have a certain number of RPO's listed without a written description.
Springs and suspension come to mind. I "believe" the R6Z is pertinent to Z49 Builds, but not sure I can say restricted to same.
I did not insert R6Z into the list as I have yet to see it with any word description beside it. When I find some I will.:lol
As far as I know, Z49's have either R6Z or R9Z, and the odd one will have both RPO's.
All I have for R6Z is "Sales Control Item #25". No idea what that means at this time.
I believe you are correct in assuming it has something to do with "order processing, most likely processing orders into Canada.
There is a bunch of R Codes that are listed as "Sales Control" items. I have yet to find anyone that can define these "Items".
At first I felt it might be in a Dealership list of items, even thinking it might refer to Line #25 (i.e.) of a standard GM sales contract. I contacted my Dlrship but they had no answers. It is on my list of questions I submitted to Mr Walczyk.
I don't blame him for not rushing at this project as dealing with these items has been tedious to say the least.
As far as your hitch, again I have that in for interpretation, trying to figure out how Soft Bags fit into this also.
I looked at your Build Sheet and I see no VR4 RPO leading me to think the "Hitch Insert" was added.
It could even have been added at the Delivering Dealer and if that were the case it would not show on the original Build Sheet.

Maybe "Sales Control" means that the it's part of a package?

edit- My truck had, •R6M - Control sales item 13 New Jersey cost surcharge, so it may be state or country related?

Now THAT would be difficult to sort, given the plethora of R's in Ontario:skep What about a Provincial code? Cash, have you seen any other unknown codes that might tie to BC, AB, or ON? Maybe R6Z is Ontario and R9Z is BC.

Thanks "If yT Fyrs" (burn the tyres!):D
Now THAT'S an original interpretation:thumbs

I believe you misunderstood my ramblings... I did not receive the hitch, but Doophus did... Both have the Z82, but not the VR4. Could be Doophus had a generous dealer:skep

R6M - NEW JERSEY COST SURCHARGE
R8Q - ILLINOIS SURCHARGE
R9Q - INDIANA ORDERS – POMS

I suppose. I imagine there are a bunch like these, but these are all I noticed.

I loved this one.
R7K - HURRICANE EXPEDITING
I can only imagine it was a demand by the ordering party they receive their SSR before hurricane season!:lol
