Corvette Black Book 1953-2019
Chevrolet ended 2018 Corvette production on January 29, 2018, and started 2019 build the same day. This drove 2018 Corvette model year production to the lowest level since 1959. The timing was rooted in Chevy’s desire for its ZR1 Corvette supercar to debut as a 2019 model. Supercar? With 755hp, it is the most powerful passenger car ever sold by GM. So, yes. This new Black Black includes 2019 intro info, plus the crazy low 2018 production numbers.
Tough act to follow
Introduced in 1978 with 60 pages about 6-inches tall, the Corvette Black Book has grown to 160 pages ten inches in height. Its beauty, like the car itself, is in its evolution. These are pocket-sized marvels with thousands of Corvette facts, options and option codes, exterior and interior colors and codes, production figures, serial numbers for body, engine, and component parts, original “window sticker” prices, and a compilation of each model’s unique details. In its precise year-to-year format, the Corvette Black Book puts phenomenal expertise at your fingertips.
Improved yet again
In the Corvette Black Book, production quantities trail by one year. So in addition to 2019 introductory info, the 2019 edition includes 2018 quantities and running production changes. It’s all part of an endless effort to maintain the Corvette Black Book’s reputation for detail and accuracy. To be clear, it is not and has never been, a guide to current values.
No one’s perfect, but after four decades of attention to detail, the Corvette Black Book has become the enthusiast’s bible. Next time you visit a top quality Corvette restoration shop, see if there isn’t a you-know-what lying around. Notice which book is stuffed into enthusiasts’ pockets at Corvette events around the world.
