40th cars shipped with three things different from the same year Bonnevilles.

1. Badging on the C pillar

2. Floor mats that said something like 40th Anniversary or 40 years.
3. RPO code Y40 on the spare tire cover.

That was the "40th" package. If you have a 1997, then technically it'* a 40th year.
