Corvette Chartreuse (Read 2411 times)

Does anyone know the backstory on the lone chartreuse '77 Corvette? I have always wondered since I learned of its existence in the Black Book. Must have been ugly as Hell, but I am really curious about why it was painted that color, for who, etc. Anyone? ???

Does anyone know the history behind this one and only? Does it still survive? Has anyone heard any stories about it?

This question was also asked over at;

I spent an hour on my 15 different advance search engines and could only find it listed in several Corvette Specifications links. 

It is the best I can do right now... Undecided

Purely speculation on my part but I don't think it would have been assigned a code if they hadn't planned to produce it in some quantity.  Ford and Chrysler had produced some pretty wild colored cars previously and I suspect that GM figured they needed to also.  By the time production for the model year arrived, the "fad" was over and the option was withdrawn.  IMO, it was just as well Smiley.

One thing that I find interesting about this is that there was a  much higher volume of GM copo cars getting panted "weird" colors than there were of one that had been assigned a paint code.  Ever see one of those orange Caddies they did for that liquour co?

I saw a bright green corvette drive past my school last week when I was looking out the window day dreaming.  Maybe it was it.  ???
