1965 Chevrolet Corvette Mako Shark II news, pictures, specifications, and information

This concept car's claim to fame was its influence on the redesigned Corvette of 1968. The Mako Shark II debuted in 1965 as a show car. Chevrolet actually created two of them - only one of which was fully functional. The non-running show car sported some interesting, futuristic details, such as square section side pipes and a squared-off §teering wheel. While the functioning version didn't have these features, it did have a retractable rear spoiler, and a square section bumper that could be extended for added protection. The Mako Shark II was powered by a 427 Mark IV engine, which became available on production Corvette models. The paint scheme continued the Shark I tradition, wîth blue/gray on top and silver/white on the bottom (along the rocker panels).
