You may have a Special RPO (Regular Production Options) Codes on your Production Decal (under the left rear hatch cover (for 1997and 1998) or on the Glove Box Door on 1999
C5's). That signifies that you are the owner of a Pilot Vehicle C5 or Possible a PROTOTYPE Vehicle C5. (Almost all these C5's were sold later to dealers through Auctions after there test periods were over and purchased by retail buyers as used or slightly used C5's).

These Production Codes are as follows:
Production Code [RPOWDO] WDO
The PROCESSING OPTION CODE for a new C5 BUILT FOR THE NEXT MODEL YEAR FOR TESTING and EVALUATION purposes. A [WDO] C5 would be a C5 being built during the current model year run of C5's, But is a FUTURE Model Year Vehicle. This Option Code is known (at the FACTORY) as a "CONTAINMENT VEHICLE" CODE. Which is the "IDENTIFICATION" of the START OF A NEW PLATFORM (i.e. NEW MODEL YEAR C5).

Production Code [RPOWD1] WD1
The IDENTIFICATION CODE FOR A FACTORY PILOT VEHICLE. For the Next Model Year (example if the factory were building 1999's today and a "RPO WDO" & "RPO WD1" was going to be built if would be a 2000 Model and would have a 2000 VIN Plate attached to it. Of course this would be a EARLY MODEL 2000
C5, with a built date in the middle of the 1999 Production time line and a JOB # for the current 1999 C5 Model Production.

Production Code [RPOWD2]: WD2
The IDENTIFICATION CODE FOR A FACTORY PROTOTYPE,
C5 Vehicle. All the information would be the same as above, EXCEPT this would be a 2001 C5. Usually all C5 Vehicles after this are called ALPHA Vehicles And BETA Vehicles meaning 3 (2002)& 4 (2003) model years away. In other words to the C5 ENGINEERS who are working on the 50th Anniversary C5 (it's SPECIAL Package will most likely be GOLD & BAD TO THE BONE...) to them it is currently known as a BETA Car.

In Summary, to all our C5 Registry Members who have early Production Model C5's let us know what you find on your RPO Sticker.
