I have the original luggage rack, only used twice on our 06 Sol..which we sold this past Dec....this one will not fit if you have Factory OnStar/XM sharkfin antenna, or spoiler....

asking $100 and will include a roll top waterproof duffle bag that is half as large as the entire carrier....would could pack two smaller bags inside this one and still have room...would carry this bag and two canvas folding chairs on the rack with no problems for long weekends

rack is in Frederick MD but can deliver or meet anywhere in NOVA/DC area if anyone is interested. email or pm if interested..thanks for looking...

Paul

Ben the Original Poster has not been seen on the site sense Aug 2011, so I would not get my hopes up on this item. Just FYI

I have one I would consider selling. It is in like new condition, repainted original color, tie downs have been re chromed. I paid 500.00 originally for it. It was garbage when I got it. I have over 900.00 in the thing. I would take 700.00.

I think original post is about the Kappasphere rack as it does not work with shark fin antenna. What skersfan has is the OEM GM bolt in luggage rack. Pic attached of it on my Sol.

Northern Sol is correct, mine is the silver color. I can get pictures if someone wants them. I bought it to put on the wifes car, but she never drives the thing. So don't see the point in putting more money into it.

Honestly a really nice one normally goes for about 500 to 550 it seems, but I had to have mine painted and the tie downs rechrolmed. They were in terrible shape. Not really looking to sell it but will. I think I have the installation kit.

The following pictures are of the one on my car.

These are extremely rare. But do add to the car over the strap on chrome things that came along afterward.

For what it's worth, I don't have issues with my Kappasphere rack interfering with the XM/OnStar antenna... but some people think that I have mine on backwards. Ben.GXP - don't give up the search, these racks show up in this forum's classifieds and on e-bay once in a while. I love how easy it is to install and remove them.

Normally for safety reason the rack would indeed be the wrong way around. But Kappashere specifically states in the installation manual that this rack can be reversed.

The racks originally came in black and silver. Same silver as the windshield frame and tulip panel.

I was mistaken when the poster called the rack OEM. The metal racks were not OEM. Kappasphere had them made and then DDM bought out Kappasphere.

The OEM model is a plastic similar to the front fenders I believe. They were available in silver or black I believe. I have had three silver ones. Never actually seen a black one.

Same one shown in the pictures Northern Sol and I posted. I painted the one on my car yellow. The extra one I have is exactly like the one in the photo above.

The tie down loops, which you can see are chrome originally. Those are what I had re chromed.

Next to my tonneau the GM luggage rack is one of my favourite mods. Also looks really cool IMO.👍

Redone07 they were never made in Chrome. You might be able to chrome one now with the new paints and things that they have. Sorry

Sorry I meant silver (never know how to see difference between silver and chrome) as the image and part number in my previous post and below. Will edit my post.
