1964–67 Corvette
For 1964 the split rear window of the Corvette Coupe was replaced with a single larger window to eliminate the center bar that blocked the driver’s rear view, leaving the 1963 model as the only year to offer the split-window coupe. Optional big-block V8 engines were offered, including a 425-horsepower 396-cubic-inch V8 for 1965 and a 427-cubic-inch V8 producing up to 425 horsepower for 1966. For 1967 exterior trim updates included hood and fender vents. Also for 1967, the L88 cast-iron big-block 427 V8 added 430 horsepower to the package.
