I have seen a 1961 Vette which appears to have a press molded fiber glass body; yet I have a 1962 Vette which has a laid up fiber glass body.

From Corvette Parts Worldwide -- All Corvettes from 1953 to 1982 were hand made and no two cars are exactly the same, therefore body panels made either way, will need to be custom fit to the Corvette they are being installed on.
