 2001 DEI Intimidator SS 

 

from Jim Smith ....I am of the belief that Matt (GMMG) may have the numbers reversed on two of the DEI Prototypes & the PR numbers below are correct.

PR-01 - 2000 prototype owned & built for Dale Jr. & driven by Jr.

PR-1 - 2001 prototype built for Dale Sr. & driven by Sr.

2002 KE-SS built for Kelley Earnhardt 

 The numbers

85: Dale Earnhardt Intimidator SS Camaro's were built

100 were planned but only 85 were built before Dale Sr's. death 

83: '01 numbered cars.


33: Total silver-faced dashes were signed by Dale Sr.
Car numbers with black signed dashes: 1-12, 14-28, 46, 50, 52 and two prototypes.

32 signed in black ink and 1 signed in blue ink. (What # is signed in blue ink?)


38: T-tops.  -  47: B4C Coupes.
Both prototypes were T-tops.

5 - ASR T-Top     -   5 California Emissions  - All 6 speeds

Last car is number 83.
30 deposits were taken before Dale Sr.'s death.
400 requests were received the week after the accident.
Intimidator SS #3 is owned by DEI and is believed to have less than 40 miles on the odometer.

......from Gary Davis...  June 18, 2018 ......

 

Jim: On Bring a Trailer website an Intimidator is being sold.  I had read, years ago about the prototypes but could not find proof of What #'s were what.  In fact the GMMG website is wrong as what Number Prototype is correct except Vince & Sally's PR-1.  However Dale Jr. has Prototype #00 & Kelly has PR-2.  Jr's car was built first & notice....  The only car that Dale drove was the one he gave Jr. - the Prototype #00.  Gary


Notes from Jim Smith - The car for sale is #74 - been for sale in CA for a couple of years now - in a private collection - not signed  -

More research is needed..... It is my understanding that Dale Sr. drove PR #1 (Vince & Sally's car now) & there is documentation to support this.  I'll post more when I have a solid answer.  Jim

 

Update - June 27, 2018 from Jim Smith

I don't beleive prototype info from Gary (above) to be correct based on new information.  Read everything in this post & decide for yourself.

 

6/25/18 - from Jim Smith

I have gone over all GMMG build information about the DEI Prototypes.

The question that has been raised is.......  What DEI Prototype did Dale Sr. Drive?

The first number on the GMMG Brass tag is the year..... 

I feel the numbers were reversed by mistake on the GMMG build info & here's why.......

Vince has a letter from Tom (General Manager of Dale Earnhardt Chevy) that states PR1 (2001) was built for & driven by Dale Sr. This is Vince's car & every piece of documentation indicates this is PR1.  GMMG build info indicates the GMMG Tag 11001  I feel the correct windshield number is PR1 that is on the car is corect & not PR01 as indicated on the GMMG build info.

A 2000 was built for Dale Jr. & it is my understanding he took it around the track & blew the motor.   Does anyone know the story?  I feel the the windshield number should be PR01 & not PR1?  GMMG build info indicates the GMMG Tag 01030.  The Tag supports that this is the 2000 built for Jr.

       Did Dale Sr. drive Jr's DEI?  Who knows?  Speculation until someone provides documentation.  

GMMG built a 2002 DEI Prototype for Kelley Earnhardt # KE-SS  (Kelley Earnhardt)  Tag 21120 - Does anyone know if Kelley still has the car or where it is now?


If you have additional documentation info I'd like to see it.  

In the meantime, the only DEI that I can confirm that Dale Sr. drove is Vince's Tag 11001 that I believe is PR1 & not PR01.

This new information would also suggest that the January 2010 Super Chevy article by Nick Licata may no longer be completely accurate.

 

Jim Smith - GMMG Registry

 

 

 

 

 

What DEI did Dale Sr. drive?

I have a letter in hand from the General Manager of Earnhardt Chev. that states 2001 PR-1 was built for, delivered to & driven by Dale Sr.

The letter is safe in the GMMG Archives now. 

In addition the Registry has a copy of the June 2011 Appraisal that goes into detail about Sr's. 2001 - PR-1.  We have had this document many - many years now.

DEI calls the 2000 Dale Jr. DEI PR-2 -  GMMG had a different window number in their build info.

The discussion about Dale Sr. not driving 2001 PR-1 is over.   2001 PR-1 was Sr's. car & he drove it.

If anyone would like to challenge this send me documentation that will support your statement.  Otherwise there is nothing left to discuss. 

If you have important information about any GMMG & are unwilling to share it with the GMMG Registry then don't even bring it up. If you bring something up about any GMMG be prepared to back it up with documentation.

Earnhardt Chevy calls PR-1 the 2001 Dale Sr. car - PR-2 the 2000  Dale Jr. car & PR-3 the 2002 Kelley Earnhardt car.   This is different than the numbers GMMG assigned.

End of discussion.

The "381" horsepower is a farce, as the cars really produced upwards of 400. The reason for the 3,8,and 1 was simple.
Earnhardt #3, Earnhardt Jr #8 and Steve Park(the third driver for DEI) #1.

from Mark owner of DEI #20........... 
.
Did you know about the DEI delivery program? It included a tour of the race shop and was an option and additional cost to the purchase of the car, but of course none got that in the wake of Dale's passing.
.
Did your car come with embroidered floor mats? Lots of folks never recieved theirs, as well as key fobs and car covers. Mine has those, including paper DE chevy floor mats.

Mats from DEI #38 - Thanks Craig

..........from Craig - DEI #38........ 
Hey Jim,
A few questions concerning the subject line:
1. Who installed them? GM, SLP or GMMG?
2. Every Black SS I've seen has black background with red outlined emblems.
3. Every other color SS I've seen has black background with silver outlined emblems.
4. My DEI and every other one has silver outlined emblems.
5. Did GMMG choose the silver outlined emblem thinking they would look better on the black DEI cars?
Might be a question to ask all DEI owners on the Registry.
Thoughts?
Enjoy your cars, Craig

.........from Jim........

Great question - My money is that Matt changed them.  He often changed the 'bow-tie' emblem & other emblems.

Examples - Grill emblems.............

Dick Harrell had Gold bow-tie

ZL-1 had Blue bow-tie

DEI had White SS

Berger SS had White SS

HRE had Red bow-tie

Tom Henry had White SS

Performance Edition had White SS

If anyone has anything to add, please let me know.

The print quality is poor on the brochures I scanned from Craig.  Sorry.

May 20, 2012 - following the DEI cars for sale & sold ...................... Info from Jim Simon.....

Here is some perspective on pricing for signed cars.

DEI #6. Approximatly 240 miles asking 98,000.

DEI #1. 1,700 miles, 95,000.

DEI # 20. 39 miles 85,000. (Latebrakeu2)

I could have bought the #21 car for 45,000 a couple of years ago and blew it! It had 611 miles on it and sold at auction for 57,500.

DEI #18 was recently for sale for 55,000.

I don't know what it sold for but I think it did. DEI #7 sold for 55,000 back in 2007.

DEI #50 was for sale in 2010 for 60,000. It is the only phase 2 signed car that I know of.

The steal was the #15 car that only had 525 miles on it and sold for 32,000! Latebrakeu2 is right though.

The lower the miles the better the outcome.

I think this #12 car is a good deal. I'll bet you could buy it for 45,000 and 700 miles is still low miles.

These cars should be sure collector cars in the future so if you can buy it you should.

Thanks  Jim

All original Intimidator owners should have received a souvenir photo calemder of their car from Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in Newton, NC.
.
Here are a couple of photos of my calender and as you might see, I never removed the first page which is a customer satisfaction survey.
It is laying on the large envelope it came in and is dated June 21 2001.
