1969

     The Stingray name appeared on the front fenders after being absent for a year. The back up lights were adjoined to the center taillights. The ignition is now on the steering column, and the depression door button was removed as a key lock supplanted it. New standard features include: front and rear disc brakes, headlight washers, center console, wheel trim rings, carpeting, and all vinyl upholestry. 60% of the Vettes from ’69 came with power steering, which is SIGNIFICANTLY more than previous years of only 10-20%. 78.4% had the four speed manual transmission, one in four had power windows, and the 350 cid 300hp could reach 60 mph in 8.4 seconds.
