OVERVIEW OF THE CLASSIC 1968 CORVETTE
Larry Shinoda’s radical Marko Shark concept became the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray for 1968, also known as the Corvette C3. Significantly revised from the past linear design, now with its knife-edge beltline, the front sloped steeply with pop-up headlights and fenders were sharply crowned, creating the impression that the car was lower. The new model rode on the same wheelbase but was seven inches longer and had a Kamm tail. Sales jumped to 28,566 vehicles and two thirds were convertibles, 8735 with the optional hardtop. The 68’ Corvette was definitely a success.
