1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Front AnglePerhaps in another dimension, this car could have existed on the original GM Motorama circuit. The thought of ‘prototype show car’ quickly comes to mind when first viewing this 1965 Corvette convertible, finished in rich Silver with Black accents. In keeping with the old-school custom ideas, it features shaved door handles, shaved head-lamp covers, and stack-style injection. However, the way-back machine accelerates right back into the 21st century when the details of this special performance car are unveiled.
