History of the 1969 Chevrolet Corvette
The 1969 Chevrolet Corvette changed little from the preceding year, but “Stingray” now became one word and was badged on the front fenders. Thanks to a long selling season, the year was an outstanding sales success for Corvette with the total jumping 30 percent to 38,762 and for the first time coupes outsold convertibles 22,129 to 16,233.
The 300bhp, 350 cubic-inch small-block Chevy V-8 was now the base engine, with an additional 50 bhp available in the L46 option for $131.65. There were four big-block 427-cubic-inch V-8s available. The 390 bhp L36 (10,531 sold) had a four-barrel carburetor, and there were three triple-carb engines: the 400 bhp L68 (2,072 sold), 435 bhp L71 (2,722) and the (nominally) 430 bhp L88. This was the last year for the L88 Corvette with 116 built for '69, and there were also two ZL1 L88s with an alloy block, costing a whopping $4,718 extra.
