Chevrolet sold 40,614 Corvettes in 1980, which was roughly a 20 percent decline in sales from the 1979 model year.  At the same time, the numbers were still respectable, especially given that the base price for a Corvette started the model year at $13,140.24 (not including options), and increased four times during the 1980 model year to a final base price of $14,345.24.
