Stung by the criticism of the 1968 Corvette, Chevrolet worked hard to resolve the problems for the 1969 model year. Various quality control and build problems were addressed wherever possible. The door panels were redesigned to recover some interior room. Overall fit and finish improved. The 250,000th Corvette was built in November 1969.

1969 Corvette steering wheel
The ignition key moved from its 1968 location on the dash near the upper right corner of the tachometer to the steering column in response to new anti-theft regulations. Power steering had become popular with a majority of Corvettes so equipped in 1969. Wheel size increased one inch to 8 inches and the steering wheel diameter went from 16 inches to 15 inches.

Engine choices for 1969 were mostly the same with the popular 427 cu. in. 435 hp motor still the king of the hill. The 327 cu in. selection was dropped in favor of the L46 350 cu. in. mill. Two of the engines offered - the L88 and ZL1 - were racing engines not practical for street use.
