First to be built from a one piece fiberglass body, only pure two seater since before World War II. These pace cars had their own vehicle identification number, seperate from the standard Corvette, another first for the marque. The difference between the VIN number for the standard Corvette and pace car is in the eighth digit, the pace car has a 9, the Corvette a 4. The pace car had their own paint scheme which consisted of a two tone paint with a red stripe. The extremely high demand for the pace car continually increased the quantity produced and in the end Chevrolet only build one for every Corvette dealer. The ultimate 70's era sports car.
