* A total of 45 1999 Monterey Maroon cars were built for the GM fleet in order to allow the color to be available at start-of-production ’00. A separate list will be provided at a later date with exact models/trims for these cars. They were a mix of V6 coupes, convertibles, and Z28s. None were SS and none had Y3F Sport Appearance Package. All were driven by GM employees and most were disposed of through the GM auction program. . . which means GM dealers would have bought them for resale to the public.

UPDATE 3-22-00 – Click for the details on the 45 1999 Montery Maroon Camaros.

** A total of 5 Z28 Coupes were built in the 1999 model year in color 63U Sport Gold metallic. While Sport Gold was discontinued near the end of the model run in 1998, a contract had been signed between Chevrolet and Days Inn for a sweepstakes where the final prize was a Sport Gold Z28 Coupe. While the sweepstakes ran in the spring and summer of ’98, the contract specified a 1999 Z28. Thus Ste. Therese built 5 1999s for this sweepstakes. Two units were given away, the other three were driven by GM executives and then disposed of through the GM auction system.

UPDATE 3-22-00 – One of the 5 1999 Sport Gold metallic Z28 coupes has been located in the Chicago area, severely damaged with 17,396 miles on the odometer.
