The "Golden Goose" C5

Aztec Gold C5 In 1997, after building only 15 Aztec Gold [RPO 58U] 1998 C5 Corvettes, the color was discontinued. Problems with the paint made it impossible to continue production. It appears they built 5 in a row, took a break, built 5 more, then another break... and then the last 5 were completed.

Speculation is they were "adjusting" the paint formula. It has been said: "No two Aztec Gold C5's look alike." In other words, the various body panels of these C5's do not match up very well. Perfect for collectors! Especially, the sequence #12 convertible, the only ONE of the bunch available with the six speed manual transmission! I wonder who has the car now...
