Description

The Chevrolet Corvette, known colloquially as the Vette, or Chevy Corvette, is a sports car manufactured by Chevrolet. The car has been produced through seven generations. The first model, a convertible, was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Myron Scott is credited for naming the car after the type of small, maneuverable warship called a corvette. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette is currently manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is the official sports car of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The third generation Corvette Stingray, patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, was introduced for the 1968 model year and was in production until 1982. C3 (after Corvette 3rd generation) coupes featured the first use of T-top removable roof panels. For 1974, a new rear bumper system replaced the squared tail and chrome rear bumper blades introduced in 1968 with a trim, tapering urethane cover carrying an integral license plate holder and recesses for the trademark round taillights. The new rear design was quite beautiful, and more up-to-Base than the 60's shape that it replaced with the vast majority of enthusiasts embracing the new design. Tailpipes were now turned down as the new bumper cover eliminated the tailpipe extensions.

This casting is modeled after a 1975 Corvette. It is similar to the later Corvette Stingray casting, which was based on a 1980's Corvette. There is also a modified 4x4 version of this casting named Monster Vette.
