May be a Corvette Show car, but it looks more like an Avanti!

Steve was right
The Corvette Rondine show car was built by Pininfarina on a production 1963 Sting Ray chassis. Two roof lines were tried: an inward slanting rear window with the roof cut off at the B-pillar and a sloping rear window.
The car was designed by Tom Tjaarda, the Michigan native who had worked for Italian carrozzerie since 1959. At a time when many manufacturers switched to a unitary chassis construction, the fiberglass bodied Corvette was a popular subject for Europe’s coachbuilders.
Pininfarina was one of them and at the 1963 Paris Motor show they launched the featured Rondine Coupe. The Rondine sports a very elegant shape of which various cues were later found on the Fiat 124 Spyder.
Still owned by Pininfarina, the unique Corvette is seen here at the 2005 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este where the Italian coach builder's 75th anniversary was celebrated
