The third generation Corvette was introduced in 1967. The new bodyshape would soon be known as the 'coke-bottle'. It was available with a Coupe and Convertibel body. The Coupe was equipped with removable roof panels and a removable rear window.
The Greenwood wide body Corvettes were brought out in 1976 for the Daytona 24 Hours and Sebring 12 Hours. Although a pole was scored in the latter, reliability was still an issue. Greenwood was invited back to Le Mans to spice up the show and to fill the grid; a considerable amount of his expenses were even covered by the French government. The 'Spirit of Le Mans' proved to be the fastest car down the track's long straight, topping 220 mph. The car qualified an impressive 9th and ran strongly until a tyre blew early on Sunday morning. This would be the final team outing for the wide body Corvette, although Greenwood himself would make the odd appearances behind the wheel of his customer's cars.
