The television show "Route 66" premiered with a story of two young men driving a 1960 Corvette around the US in search of adventure. And while deep see fishing in the Bahamas, Bill Mitchell lands a shark and thinks of the idea for the body shape of the XP-775, the Corvette Shark. The 1960 Corvette was the last to feature tail lights formed into the rounded fenders, and the last with the heavy "tooth" grill. The base exterior of the 1960 Corvette continued the smooth look of the previous years.
