1964 Corvette

The split window on the coupe was removed for 1964 as well as the hood trim panels, but the hood recesses remained. A three-speed fan was placed in the rear of Coupe models to improve ventilation; the fan pulled air through vents added to the drivers side roof panel. 1964 Seat backs are more square, and thicker at the top. From 1964 through 1967, Dow-Smith in Ionia, Michigan, a division of the A.O. Smith Company, supplied some Corvette bodies.
