This Was Missing for the First 20 Years
It is hard to comprehend today, but from 1963 to 1982, Corvettes didn’t have an opening trunk. In fact, they only had a small luggage compartment behind the seats and even less space in convertibles. If you look at the pictures of the models produced in those model years, you will notice that not a single one has an opening trunk. This made Corvettes fun vehicles, but not particularly practical for long journeys.
