Like all manufacturers during the late '60s and early '70s, Chevrolet faced increasing pressure from the insurance industry, government regulators, and safety advocates. Suddenly, bigger (in terms of motor) was not better. When the big block, 454-cubic inch V-8 became available, the 1970 model year also offered a new solid-lifter, 350-cubic inch small block LT-1 option for Corvette. With 370 horsepower, the LT-1 had numbers more commonly associated with big block motors but without the additional nose-heavy weight of the larger powerplant.

Like the big block cars, compression ratios were reduced in 1971 to allow for the use of unleaded fuels, and horsepower was reduced to 330. Car & Driver quoted 0–60 mph in 6.0 seconds, completion of the quarter-mile in 14.57 seconds, and a top speed of 137 mph from the four-speed-equipped Corvette they tested. The LT-1 engine option made its final appearance in 1972. Horsepower was now quoted at 255 in SAE net terms, and engines were detuned to meet new Federal emission control standards, yet performance remained excellent. Sales totaled 27,004, with 20,496 coupes and only 6,508 convertibles. Chevrolet proudly proclaimed the Corvette “America's only true production sports car.”
