Great question. Not sure if there is, but there are probably members here with every option. Sounds like it is time for a roll call.

My 82 is Gold metal flake on yellow.

Here is a couple of captures fro the 84 brochure.

I think this 1983 Brochure will best answer your question.

I'll add that there were some 3-color options in 1985 (not sure on other years). Here is a shot of my old '85 with a different pinstripe type. I know this is not a one off as another member on this site had the same color combo.
The silver flake stars and lettering are not factory.

84 - grey / blue - best looking option there was ..!! We are original owners and boat is still orig except for bottom of passenger seat. Does show show age / oxidation ...but over all good for an orig 84. Hangs in the boat house during the summer for a occasional cruise or slalom run. As much as it pains us ...we may be looking to sell this spring ..would love to see it go to someone who would appreciate. Message if you have interest. east of Birmingham, AL - Logan Martin Lake.

Holy cow, you guys sure have lots of data! Thanks

I have always loved these boats! How hard is to find a mid 80's 454 version with nice colors? We're they super rare?

Not that rare, but not overly abundant. They turn up if you are diligent in your search.

Hey Cal69, just verifying that the pinstripe is gelcoat like the other style of pinstripe?

You could just take pictures and post them. Hate to have your vintage brochure travelling around.

And don't forget the textured top (although not a color but...)

My MC is a 78 S&S which has a very light green base, textured top, and dark green stripe.

Yep. It is gel coat pinstripe, NOT tape. No thin body color stripe between the main stripe and the pinstripe like the usual S&S boats. I saw another one just like it here on the board but have never seen another 3-color S&S anywhere else.
