1958 Chevrolet Corvettes For Sale
1958 Chevrolet Corvette XP-700 – The wild looking 1958 Corvette XP-700 was developed, designed and built as a personal car for Bill Mitchell. Bill Mitchell was head of General Motors styling from 1958 to 1977. The XP_700 was Mitchell’s first concept car and he dubbed his concept as the Phantom. It set the stage for more wild ideas created him and his design team over the years.
The 1958 Corvette XP-700 had a fiberglass body designed to have a Grand Prix appearance. The XP-700 had a certifiably insane front end with large air scoops and a huge loop style bumper-grille protruding well forward of the quad headlights set above it. The front end was rightly forgotten but not the rear end.
The rear portion was unique and had a simple flowing shape that just happen to mate well with the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette front end design. The rear end styling influenced the second generation Corvette models starting with the 1958 Corvette expecially the 1961 Corvette.
