Corvette Fordite is old automotive paint which has hardened, been cut and polished. During the painting process overspray accumulated in layers as the excess paint went together with the painted car body to the oven. Since hand spraying has been replaced by powder painting, fordite is no longer produced, and the material on the market is all that exists.This Corvette Fordite is from the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, KY. Pictures of a couple samples are on the right.
