Notes:  Along with the color combinations shown above, additional combinations were possible. According to the "Corvette Black Book" by Mike Antonick, color combination production numbers do not match up to total production numbers because some Corvettes were painted with non-standard paint and primer only. All seat and shoulder belts matched the interior color of the car with the exception of the blue interior which came with darker blue belts.
