C3 Corvette Badges Spotter's Guide

The C3 "shark" cars had the longest run of all Corvettes to date: 14 model years running from '68 to '82. And even though the C3's technology and styling were getting a little long in the tooth by the end of that span, buyers didn't seem to care. In '79, Corvette sales hit an all-time high of 53,807 units-a mark that still stands today.

Corvette badges, meanwhile, never stopped evolving. Over the same period, the famous crossed-flags insignia was significantly updated, and fresh designs were developed to denote special-edition models and new technology.
