This is a very rare C5 1997 Corvette. GM was experimenting in
1996-1997 with various paint combinations including RPO 58U Aztec
Gold. Chevrolet was working with the paint supplier DuPont
developing this paint tone, hue and shade, but it was never mass
produced or made available to the general public. Later, it was
rumored it might be saved for the 2003 50th Anniversary
Here's why its one of the rarest C5 Corvettes on the planet. There
are only 15 Corvettes painted this color and none were sold
directly to the public. While working with DuPont the factory
produced the cars in 3 separate paint-runs of 5. This Corvette was
signed by Will Cooksey, the Bowling Green Plant Manager as #06.
After being completed the cars were sent to GM for evaluation then
later sold through an auction to select Chevrolet dealers. These
Corvettes remain mostly in the private collections of those
The previous owners of the C5 maintained it to very high standards
it looks like new. This car has an automatic transmission,
performance axle memory drivers seat, dual zone A/C, black interior
with sport seats, transparent top and fog lamps. It has also been
updated with an aftermarket exhaust system and chrome factory
It's not often you can own a rare factory concept car for such a
reasonable price. This will be a great addition to any Corvette
collector and quite special to enjoy on the road.
