44th Edition Corvette Black Book 1953-2022 by Mike Antonick

The Corvette Black Book had a long history dating back to 1978 when it was first published. This 44th edition highlights every possible detail one could want to know about the sports car– from options and option codes, exterior and interior colors, production quantities, serial numbers for the body, engine, and component parts– right down to the scores of little details that set these cars apart. Learn the History of the Corvette Black Book on our blog.

Production increased to 26,216 for the 2021 model year, yet still fell short of continued robust demand for the mid-engine jewel that has rocked the automotive landscape since its July 18, 2019, reveal.  In a rolling changeover, 2021 production wrapped the evening of September 8, 2021. The first 2022 rolled off the line mere minutes later at 10:49 pm.  This new Corvette Black Book has full 2021 coverage including final production stats and running changes/updates, and 2022 intro data.

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 figures, serial numbers for the 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 usually trail by one year. So, in addition to 2022 introductory data, the 2022 edition includes 2021 quantities and running production changes. It’s 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 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.
