What was the Cadillac Catera based off of? I never understood that car

If it's not technically a "parts bin" vehicle, it certainly looks like one

I think every body style change for the Silverado/Sierra included a classic version the same year. Couldn’t imagine buying a 99 classic when the standard went LS

was there a 99 1500 classic?

or did they use up all those body parts in 2500 & 3500's until 2002?

Yea looked like an OBS. I ran into this issue a lot with my 07 Sierra because first year for vvt and for the 6 speed but nobody would believe me :rofl:

Or flat out couldn’t pick the right shit so would say/use a 08 Sierra to find parts.

Also a fun fact, those Cateras used the same door handles as the 04-06 GTOs.

Enjoy that tidbit of entirely useless info.
