concept car wasteland: 1968 Chevrolet Astro II (XP 880)

Well, so all these rumours around about how a C7 Corvette is gonna be mid-engined (if GM even survives their current downfall!), but hey Chevy already tried some concepts with that!  This 1968 Chevrolet Astro II XP-880 (not to be confused with the morbid Chevy Astro van of the 80s/90s) is amazing in pretty much every way.  It’s got a gorgeous body, hinting at some of the 70s Corvettes—but far overreaching them in nearly every respect.  This is the Corvette Chevrolet SHOULD have built….but never did sadly.  It looks inspired by the Miura and Ford GTs of the 60s, but has its own character….another one lost in the archives of the wasteland.
