Despite being over sixty years old, the Chevrolet Corvette still looks young
and peppy but don't think it's aged well — like every other sexagenarian it's
had a lot of work done. Debuted in 1953 by GM, the Corvette (a name for a small,
nimble warship) was the first American sports car (take that Mustang) and
eventually became one of the great muscle cars of all time. In April 2017, Chevy
released a 65th-anniversary edition, the Corvette Carbon 65, a fact which should
put to rest any speculation that retirement is in its future. So, whether you
have 1953 C1. a 1968 C3 Stingray or a C6 Corvette, why not add the protection,
privacy and style of a precut Rtint® window tint kit?
The original Corvette was sped into production in June 1953 after having been
shown as a concept car earlier in that same year. A scant 300 were
built, with a sticker price approaching $32,000 in today's dollars but they can
now fetch more than 100 times that at auction. Fabled actor John Wayne was one of the first owners of
the two-seat fiberglass convertible, which came with a 150-hp straight-six
engine. It was available only in white with a red interior, and it had just two
luxurious options: a heater and an AM radio.
The third-generation Corvette, the C3, was manufactured from
1968 to 1982 and included the famous Stingray. The C3 featured
redesigned bodies with hidden headlights and more powerful
engines with turbo options.
its 45th year approached, the Corvette had its most dramatic overhaul since
1953--it finally got a large trunk. The fifth-generation C5 (which listed
for $37,495) also improved performance, with a top speed of 175 mph. In the 2002
movie Mr. Deeds, Adam Sandler gave an entire town little red Corvettes—2002
C5s—after listening to some Prince.
2005 to 2013, the C6 received a completely new body and featured exposed
headlights for the first time since 1962. The sticker price for the initial C6
was $44,245, and the production run, which ended in 2013, included a ton of
racing variants. The Stingray returned after an absence of 38 years

price of $51,995, the Corvette continued to get more muscular, with a 455-hp
For its 65th birthday, Chevy has
introduced the Carbon Fiber 65 in Grand Sport 3LT and Z06 3LZ models in April
But good luck getting one: Chevy will produce only 650 of each for all markets,
starting at $81,490 for the Grand Sport and $99,490 for the Z06.

I ordered a precut kit for my 1971 corvette stingray. I think it was the 1968 year kit but they fit 1968 to 1972. I love it I had the kit professionally installed.
Used the standard film version - not "cling". Laid the strip on the exterior surface to mark up for trimming. My wife shone a flashlight through from the inside so I could exactly follow the interior edge. Marked up with magic marker, trimmed with sharp scissors. Found the spray solution essential. Removed entirely from the backing and with both the film and windshield wet with solution it was super easy to slide into place. Just a few strokes with a small bathroom squeegee and it looks like a professional installation.
