Chevrolet did not retain any records on combinations of options. This means it is impossible to know how many of any particular series and model came with any combination of options such as how many convertibles were built with a 4-speed and/or a specific optional engine or how many 2-door sport coupes came with a radio.

Only known options reported by Chevrolet are listed. Numbers often do not add up. For example, of 23,158 convertibles built, 9,843 are shown with a manual top (C05) and 9,413 are shown with a power top (C06) resulting in a total of only 19,258 convertibles having a folding top.

Line items with orange bar are items shown on some dealer new car records but not shown as options reported by GM.

(1) These figures do not make sense. Tailfins & Bowties reports 14,970 convertibles were built.  Where the number 23,158 comes from on the report isn't known. If 19,258 had either a manual or power top, what did the other 3,900 have? It is known that 262 were exported and possibly the options were not recorded for those. But that sill leaves 3,638 convertibles unaccounted for.
