    According to the ad, it is listed as an ARE topper

    Hello everyone. I recently picked up my first GMT 400 and was curious about the rarity of the color since I hadn’t seen very many if any with Red Maple Metallic. Can anyone tell me how rare the color is and how long it was used for? Thanks in advance, everyone!

    Here is my 1997 Tahoe LT with only 64k miles on it. Bought it from the original owner who kept it in his garage and only drove it to tow his jet ski during the summer time.

    Here's a more recent set of photos of my 94 in dark autumnwood metallic. Ive noticed out of the few others that have this same color in this thread none of them have a solid color scheme. I have no two tone 017024e88b87d3a39d381d9380c9d334de8f77409f.jpg 017e5f1da7f3da1354dfc4456566c646d0c3f12e81.jpg

    Someone please explain to me why I can't decide between these two colors?!?! Dark Autumnwood and the Quasar blue at the top edge of the pic. They're two extremes.
    ...I'm just weird I guess.

    Quasar blue is easier to find by far!

    Sure haven't seen many of those but I did coincidentally happen across a '97 Burb in that same color, just now on CL. Looks like Red Maple Metallic with a two-tone possibly Dark Cherry Metallic middle? And some awful dealer stripe/sticker package.

    Hmm, looks like the CL image won't directly display so here's the ad: https://easttexas.craigslist.org/ctd/d/tyler-1997-chevy-suburban-1500-ls-4wd/7210447818.html
