1970 Corvette Production Volumes

Corvette prices jumped dramatically from the mid $4000 price range in 1969 to over $5000 in 1970. The base coupe (without extra options) now retailed for $5,192. The convertible on the other hand, while still somewhat less expensive, sold for $4,849. While the sudden price increase doubtless had some impact on some customers’ willingness to purchase a new Corvette, it was really the late production start as the result of the UAW strike which most adversely impacted the total sales numbers on the 1970 Corvette. A total of only 17,316 cars were made for model year 1970 as a result (which was the lowest sales number for Corvette since 1962).
