The first year of C3 Corvette production got off to a strong start for Chevy. A total of 28,566 cars were made for model year 1968. In fact, model year sales set a new record which was up approximately 5,000 units from the final C2 Sting Ray. Part of the Corvette’s renewed popularity likely had something to do with the highly competitive pricing that GM implemented – a mere $4,320 for a convertible and $4,663 for the coupe.
