In an era of chrome and four headlamps, the Corvette succumbed to the look of the day. The 1958 model year and the four that followed all had the exposed four-headlamp treatment and prominent grills. Optional engine choices included two with twin carburetors (including a 270 hp model with Carter 2613S and 2614S WCFB four-barrels). Features to appear in 1960 models included tailamps molded into the rear fenders and heavy grill teeth. New features include aluminum radiatiors, but only with 270 hp and 290 hp engines.
