Sorry man,Somebody at the
Corvette museum is either wrong or maybe just mistaken, WA 8554 White has been used on various GM vehicles since 1985 to 2015,There was a time that I had in my shop at least 2 gallons of paint in stock because I painted allot of GM vehicles this color.

With that said, There was 2110 White Corvette Coupes and 1510 White Corvette Convertibles built in 1988 .

Anybody see 1 of these person ?

[FONT=&quot]A special letter from General Motors on 1990 Competition Yellow Corvettes makes any yellow 1990 unusual but only 23 ZR1s were built in Competition Yellow making it extremely rare. The letter states the color had a photosensitivity characteristic (the color would change in the sunlight and then change back within 24 hours[/FONT]

I've not laid my hands on a 90 Comp Yellow ZR1,But I done some massaging on a couple 90 Comp Yellow coups. There were 278 Comp Yellow Corvettes in 1990,Least used color that year.:thumb
