The most innovative of the Bob McDorman Collection’s GM Styling Corvettes is this Blue Metallic one-off enjoyed by GM Styling legend Bill Mitchell. The unique paint is accented with a custom made die cast front grille and matching dual front fender vents. Ventless door glass hinted at the future Astro ventilation, with unique “chaser” lights decorating the inner door panels. A willing 327 CI engine and 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic give this gem all the performance the boss could have asked for..
