L-82 Years

1975

Specifications:
Total Production: 38,465 (33,836 Coupe, 4,629 Convertible)

The two-piece rear bumper of 1974 gave way to a smoother, one-piece unit in 1975. 1975 would be most remembered as the last production Corvette convertible until 1986. Catalytic converters were introduced in 1975 for all Corvettes. Optional engine choice for 1975 (one) was the lowest since 1955. Hood emblems designating the L-82 engine appeared, although some 1975 L-82 models don't have the emblem. Kilometer-per-hour appeared on the speedometer and it was the first year with a headlight-warning buzzer.
