I just purchased an 70 LS5 convertible M21, a/c, buckets and have been searching for production numbers with no luck. Anyone having info or link? I have found several sites with the ls5 production #'s but having trubble finding how many SS LS5 convertibles built.
Thanks in advance

I do not believe there are any numbers on LS-5 convertibles but only LS-5 cars.For sure there are not many and to find one with A/C and a 4-speed you are well ahead of the game. Good luck with your new toy.

My resource material indicates a total of 91 LS-5 convertibles in 1970.

50 - 4 sp
41 - auto

49 - no cowl induction hood
42 - with cowl induction hood

Hope this helps.

I know that the TOTAL production run for convertibles in 1970 was about 7,200. That includes standard Malibu and those with the SS package. ANY of them 31 years later is rare and getting rarer. I know of two that burned-up in Ohio this year alone. I'm glad to own one, and I'm sure you are too. Steve

Thanks for the information. The car has cowl induction, power top and tilt wheel all matching w/build sheet. I know I will enjoy it
. Just had no idea how many in this configuration may have been built.
You guys have been a big help, Thanks.

Don, just curious, where did you get info on production runs? I was under the impression there was no such info as to put together specific options such as Convertible and SS. Can you tell me how many L34 Convertibles were built in 70?

John, that information comes from the 1968-72 Chevrolet A-Body Production Totals poster which is available from Dan Carr who is a member here (available in the TC store I believe). I'm sure there is a certain amount of "assumptions" in these figures but in my mind it is the most reliable source available.

It reflects a total of 1,088 L-34 convertibles for 1970. 502 manual and 586 automatic.

That poster does look nice,and is a great conversation piece.
But the problem with the assumptions on this poster are,in time,they will become facts to others who don't know better.I am talking about new people entering this hobby who assume it is verbatim and begin to quote from it as such now and into the future.Thus merking up the waters more.
Not meant as a slam,just an opinion I and others on this board have about it.
