This Corvette was signed #06 by Wil Cooksey, the Bowling Green Corvette Plant Manager (where the car was produced) and a 2013 Corvette Museum Hall of Fame inductee.
There are only 15 C5 1998 Corvettes painted this color .
This is a very rare Corvette. GM was experimenting in 1996-1997 with various paint combinations including RPO 58U Aztec Gold. Chevrolet was working with the paint supplier DuPont to develop this new paint tone, hue and shade, but it was never mass produced. The factory produced the cars in 3 separate paint-runs of 5. Later, it was rumored it might be saved for the 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette.
GM auctioned the cars to select Chevrolet dealers. These Corvettes remain mostly in the private collections of those dealers.
This Corvette was maintained to very high standards. The 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 wheels. It's not often you can own a rare factory concept car for such a low price.
