The introduction of the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette marked the brand’s 15th anniversary with the new C3 generation of the already iconic line. Often promoted as “all different all over”, the previous iterations of the Corvette were completely redesigned for this new model. The final product was a beautiful car with soft round features that evoked the futuristic aesthetic characteristic of the industrial sixties, while also hinting at an edgier future that would come along with the approaching decade.
The new model was introduced in a rather unconventional way, for even though General Motors insisted on keeping the appearance of the car a secret until its official unveiling, several weeks before the new “Custom Corvette” was featured in Mattel’s new Hot Wheels line because of an unfortunate scheduling mishap. The 1968 Corvette was available as either a coupe or a convertible. The coupes, however, featured a new removable rear window as well as removable roof panels. Meanwhile, the convertible sported a soft folding top.
