Corvette Black Book 1953-2023
Corvette’s 70th year was honored by a 70th Anniversary Edition, RPO Y70, in either White Pearl or Carbon Flash exteriors, and Ceramic White interior (all Y70 exclusives). While Stingray production started on May 11, the much anticipated Z06 model wasn’t released until September. Z06’s LT6 engine, rated at 670-hp, was most powerful naturally aspirated production V-8. This new Corvette Black Book has the scoop on these 2023 highlights, plus a breakdown of 2022’s final VIN and build numbers.
Tough act to follow
Introduced in 1978 with 60 pages about 6-inches tall, the Corvette Black Book has grown to 176 pages ten inches in height. Its beauty, like the car itself, is in its evolution. These are pocket-sized marvels with thousands of facts, options and option codes, exterior and interior colors and codes, production quantities, 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 usually trail by one year. So in addition to 2023 introductory data, the 2023 edition includes 2022 quantities and running production changes. All part of an endless effort to maintain the book’s reputation for detail and accuracy. To be clear, it is not a guide to current values.
No one’s perfect, but after four-plus 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.
