1969 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster

Third Floor - History

Built from 1968 through 1982, the third-generation Chevrolet Corvette strongly resembled the experimental Mako Shark II that was designed by Larry Shinoda and built under the direction of GM styling boss Bill Mitchell. The early C-3s retained the four-wheel independent suspension and disc brakes of their predecessors and were designed primarily for the American market, which tended to favor brash appearance and ferocious acceleration over restrained elegance and delicate handling.
