Source for GTO Production Totals

Does any forum member know the source for this forum's 2004-2006 GTO production totals?

GM Heritage Center? Pontiac's Option Analysis by Selected UPC Usage production reports? Automotive News? Primary source? Secondary source?

I was told to P.M. GTO JUDGE for this information. I did so one week ago. No response.

Thank you for your help.

If the production totals are simply copied & pasted from another forum, that's fine. I just want to know the original source.

Thank you THEAMCGUY. I'm glad you sent that report.

The older report has the same issue that the current report on this forum has. Both reports indicate the 4L60-E for the 2004-06 auto trans.

The 2004 auto trans actually was the 4L60-E (Hydra-Matic RPO M30), but the 2005-06 auto trans was the 4L65-E (Hydra-Matic RPO M32).

The other questionable item is the RPO used for the auto and manual transmissions. At one time in the past, Pontiac did record transmissions by the transmission provisions RPO code. MN6 was the manual provisions code (MN6 for a 6-speed manual, MM5 for a 5-speed, etc) and MX0 was the auto provisions code. The provisions were the parts used to connect that particular trans to the the car: shift linkage, shift knob, etc. By using a provisions code, the total manual or total auto transmission production could be quickly ascertained when more than one auto or manual trans was offered in one model year. However, that way of recording transmissions did not last past the late 1980s or early 1990s, IIRC, because there was no longer a choice of manual trans (M20, M21, M22, MB1, MK6, M39, etc) or auto trans (MD8, MV9, MW9, etc) for one model year. The 2004-06 GTO did not have a yearly choice for more than one auto transmission or more than one manual transmission, so I am wondering why Pontiac would have counted trans production by the provisions code, instead of the actual RPO code: M30/M32 or M12 (Tremec T56).

Perhaps the 4L60-E for all three years of Holden GTO was a transcribing error by the original transcriber. I don't know how to explain the seemingly anachronistic recording RPO for the transmissions.

THEAMCGUY, do know the approximate date of your report?

Thank you.

That's the same list that GTO JUDGE posted in April 2017, isn't it?

Thank you.
It could be that Holden used Transmission Provisions RPO instead of just the Transmission RPO. Remember Holden was doing things different maybe they offered multiple transmissions in the model year.
