Collector's Gold !

Aztec Gold No. 14 Buds Chevrolet

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, then took a break, then they built 5 more, then another break...and then the last 5 were completed.....

Speculation is they were "ADJUSTING" the PAINT FORMULA....It is said:
"No Two Aztec Gold C5's LOOK ALIKE" ....In other words the Various Body Panels OF THESE C5's DO NOT MATCH VERY WELL!!! BUT, COLLECTORS LOVE THAT!!!
Especially, Sequence # 12,the ONE Convertible. Six-Speed !
