Falling sales numbers weren’t isolated to the ZR-1 Corvette alone. In all, General Motors sold a mere 20,479 Corvettes during the course of its 1992 model year, which resulted in the lowest sales output since 1962. During the course of the 1992 production run, the 1-millionth Corvette rolled off the Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly line. This special Corvette convertible received individually stitched headrests that commemorated this milestone.
