C3 Corvette 1968 – 1982 model years. The 1968 Corvette introduced the new Mako Shark body style and brought the C3 Corvettes from the late sixties through the seventies and all the way into the early eighties. The C3 body style was the longest running body style of all Corvettes to date, and it is still tremendously popular with collectors, restorers, weekend cruisers, and now with restomod enthusiasts. The 1968 and 1969 Corvettes were very similar in appearance, but there were some subtle differences between the two model years. The Tri Power 427 engines were available during these two model years, and the new TH400 Turbo Hydra-Matic three-speed automatic transmission became an available option in 1968. The Legendary L88 427 engine was available in both 1968 and 1969, and for the 1969 model year, the 327 engine grew to 350 cubic inches. The 1970 Corvette brought us an even larger big block Chevrolet engine as it was now 454 cubic inches, and the solid lifter 350 engine was released as the LT1. During the 1971 Corvette model year, a solid lifter 454 with aluminum heads option was available as the LS6, and in 1972 the solid lifter LT1 engine became available with air conditioning as the 454 engine option began to decline in popularity. 1972 was the last year for metal bumpers at the front and rear. Beginning in 1973, urethane bumpers began the appearance and development on the Corvettes which lasts to this day. Emission standards increased during the seventies and in 1978, the Corvette became famous for its Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Edition model and the Silver Anniversary Edition model.
