ATTENTION COLLECTORS Very Rare!! 1998 Aztec Gold Corvette Coupe, #6 of 15 in this color.
This 1998 Aztec Gold Corvette Coupe is one of the rarest C5 Corvettes ever built. In 1997 GM was experimenting with RPO 58U Aztec Gold; rumor was that it was going to be the color for the 2003 50th Anniversary Corvettes. Corvette was working with the paint supplier, DuPont, in developing the paint. Due to color matching issues the color was never made available to the general public and the project died.
During the development there were a total of 15 Corvettes that were painted this color; none of the cars were sold directly to the public. While working with DuPont the factory produced the cars in three separate groups of five. This Corvette was car signed by Will Cooksey, the Bowling Green, Kentucky plant manager as being number six.
The cars were sent to GM after completion for evaluation, then later sold through an auction to select Chevrolet dealers. Today a good number of these Corvettes remain in the private collections of some of those dealers. The previous owners of this rare Corvette have driven it but have maintained it to very high standards. It looks like new.
This car has an automatic transmission, performance axle, memory driver’s seat, dual zone A/C, and Black interior with sport seats, transparent top and fog lamps. It has also been updated with an aftermarket exhaust system and chrome factory wheels. This is a truly rare C5 Corvette that will be a great addition to any Corvette collector.
