Next in line was the Silhouette minivan. The last Silhouette was made in March 2004.
There were actually only 360 made because the plant had run out of production capacity due to fleet orders for vans on the same assembly line.

Silhouette Final 500 differentiating features include: Dark cherry metallic paint, front AND rear embroidered seats, as well as floor mats, Final 500 center caps and Final 500 badges.
*Updated Info:
Unlike the other Olds Final 500 models, the Silhouettes were not issued the medallions as intended. A few did get their medallions by asking a favor of Olds Product Manager Douglas L. Stott (one of his final acts at Oldsmobile). It was said there was a box with all of the unissued medallions. Requests for owners medallions late 2012 were met with "we do not know where the box is now" The reasoning behind this was that the purist collectors would take exception to the medallion stating No. xxx / 500 instead of xxx / 360 that were all that were produced of the Final 500s. By the time Olds found that only 360 made it off the assembly line it was too late to place an order for the correct wording on a new set of badges.
