1965 Mako Shark II
A concept car that foreshadowed the design of the third-generation Corvette in 1968, the 1965 Mako Shark II is powered by a 427 cubic inch V8 engine. The Mako Shark II continued the paint scheme of the Mako Shark with blue-gray paint that faded into the lower white-silver. In 1969 Mako Shark II was redesigned into the Manta Ray with a new front spoiler, a redesigned grille and side pipe exhaust, reshaped rear window and a more horizontal rear end.
