Around half a million Corvettes were sold between 1968 and 1982, and the distinctive Shark body style with V-8 power has gained huge status. Some Corvettes may be to rare and valuable to be modified like the big-block cars built between 1968-74 but the vast majority built between 1975 and 1982 are affordable, plentiful, and ideal for high-performance builds. Many Corvettes from this era are often considered weekend cruisers because they carry antiquated brakes, steering, suspension, and anaemic V-8 engines with 165-220HP.
