1997 was a new generation year for Corvettes and only a coupe was offered. There was no convertible model. Only 9,572 coupes were built that year. (source:http://www.musclecarclub.com/musclecars/chevrolet-corvette/chevrolet-corvette-history-5.shtml)

Thanks for your answer, but it didn't answer my question. I know there were no convertibles, only coupes. But coupes came in two versions: One with a fixed roof as the lowest trim (no targa roof and a smaller rear window, just like the later models for the Z06) One with a targa roof (removable roof panel, not convertible). So my question is: How many of the "fixed" roof were built??????

Hello, 2078 were built with the base roof, 7213 had removable blue-tinted roof panels, and only 416 had the dual removable panels. I hope that answers your question. If not, check out this page; it has a lot of great stats: http://www.idavette.net/facts/97.htm Best of luck! CarGrrl

Thank you! That is what I wanted to know. I never heard of the split roof ones and the small production quantity, Wow! that is good info. I guess I will concentrate in getting one of those split roof ones or a "base roof" model as you call it. Thanks again for the info and the link!
