I noticed on the above link that in 1977 there was one chartreuse car made. Was it a special order car? Who was it for? And does anybody know what ever happened to it? I guess it was just another odd item for 77 vettes which have alot of odd items.      Bob

I wish I had a dollar for every time that question that question has been asked on the different corvette forums.  I could retire a rich man.  It really would be interesting to know if that 77 does still exist.  We just need to figure out how to put out a world wide search and have every 77 owner check their data plate for that paint code.

Rick  I can't believe that someone would paint a new corvette chartreuse Cheesy. I'm sure if it's out there it's probably been repainted.     Bob

Bob, I personally would not want and never would have ordered a chartreuse vette. Shocked But with one one in that color if I had it now, you can bet I'd be on every corvette forum on the internet letting everyone know I had it. Grin

Dale, Not only would that color stick out Shocked but to have a one of one that would really make it stick out.  Bob

code 41 chartruese I was told was a special one only order for a wife of a GM executive, what I find hard to believe is why there was never any mention of the color in either first or second printing of the 1977 Corvette Brochure, you only find the color references in Mike Antonik's Corvette Black Book while I'm sure he did his research, I don't think Chevrolet would have assigned a code for a COPO or special order. it's the stuff of legends in my opinion.

Chris, I often wondered if any of the paint manufacturers have a mix code for that color and paint code.
