Was this a thing??


Just seen this on Instagram

Was this actually made, or has it just been customised?

I like the back...

Concept car that actually spawned a kit of panels to replicate back in in day - may even still be available called Mako (or was it Maco?) We have a member in Scotland with one of these.

Absolutely a "thing" Richard! It's the concept car that spawned the 68 Corvette, now unfortunately known as the C3. Designed by one of the Corvette legends, Larry Shinoda, it debuted in 65 or 66 I think. A follow on from the Mako Shark 1, which had the styling that became the Sting Ray, (now known as the C2).

Was it not the Mako Shark concept for the C2 and Manta Ray concept for the C3 ?, but I have not seen the back window treatment before as in the image, there are obviously a few variants around possibly custom jobs.

Many years ago I remember seeing the C3 version at Corvette Kingdom which I assumed was an Ekler's creation.
