  • Prices shown were introductory retail and included factory and dealer delivery and handling. They did not include transportation, or state and local taxes.
  • Not all options shown were available at the start of production, and some were deleted before year's end. For instance, RPO-MB1 and RPO-L89 were both introduced after the start of the model year. The factory-supplied RPO Z28 packages with exhaust headers and plenum air intakes were discontinued before the end of 1968 production.
  • When no quantity is shown, it is generally included in other listings. For instance, several variations of the RPO-Z28 option were available during part of the year, but the 7,199 quantity is the total of all combinations sold.
  • Chevrolet records also indicate the following sales: RPO-K05 Engine Block Heater (507 sold).
