Upon seeing a Styling Concept Corvette especially built for styling Chief Harley Earl, Bunkie Knudsen, head of Chevrolet Division at General Motors, ordered one for himself. This one is finished in Crimson Firefrost with White & Red interior. It is easily distinguished by the custom built chrome side exhaust. It has prototype features that later became regular production items, such as the instrument cluster, reshaped seats, and rear compartment battery placement. The distinctive hood stripe was to re-appear in 1967 on the hood of 'Big Block' cars. The 360 horsepower, 327 cubic-inch engine boasts a specially finished chrome and black wrinkle fuel inject system in place of the cast aluminum version.
