It left the Corvette free from a lot of ornamentation, and the result is an elegantly restrained use of chrome for '60s standards. The sparing use of brightwork also means it's important that it looks especially nice in places like the genuine knock-off wheels, rockers, and two-piece front and rear bumpers.
The factory-correct black interior goes nicely with the darker red tones of the exterior. And the crispness of the bucket seats, dash, and doors are more signs of a classic coupe treated with respect.
