The new for 1968 Chevrolet Corvette was announced as a special kind of automobile that comes along about once every generation to totally arrest the imagination of car enthusiasts. For 1968, the mechanics of the Sting Ray were improved and refined, but the most noticeable aspect was the inspiring new design. The coupe design was lauded for its uncommon removable roof sections over the pilot and the navigator for open air, enhanced by the rear cockpit glass also being removable to create a unique effect that was a first for an American production sports car. Its long, low profile features a blunt rear end design in the continental GT tradition, with an integral rear spoiler providing a striking aerodynamic design.
