What year is was the recessed headlights available.

Asked by Feb 19, 2007 at 09:58 AM about the 1974 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: General

I purchased a 74 L82, and one of the things the previous owner did was to remove the flip up headlights and install recessed units. Personally I am going to reinstall the originals. But I was curious when this option was available.
Thanks
Mike

Sorry, Mike, but I can't find any evidence that recessed headlights were an official option on the Corvette for any year. But Rik's Corvette Parts (http://www.riksvet.com/) in North Carolina offers recessed headlights as two different parts, one for 1968 - '74 Corvettes, and the other for 1975 - '82 'vettes. Hope that helps!

The other owner shopped at Rik's, so that would more then likely be the correct answer. I do know some about earlier vette's, and personally I never came across something like this. Thankyou

This option of recessed headlight was never an option on Corvette. They are all aftermarket installs.

NEVER !!!! Thank you Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda for not losing sight of what you were mimicking as Bill's original design inspiration, the Mako Shark--the salt water based Mako and eventually the fiberglass Mako Shark prototype.
