1962 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Prototype XP-720

Somewhere in the second part of 1959, project XP-720 began at GM Styling to design a production Corvette based on Bill Mitchell’s Sting Ray racer. It would become known as the C2 or second-generation Corvette. In October of that same year, a clay mock-up of project XP-720 was completed and displayed for General Motors’ management viewing. This early effort was essentially the Stingray Racer with a coupe top.
