A flashback picture of the 1,000,000th Corvette when it first came off the assembly line.
If you’re a fan of the Corvette lineage, then you’ll find this of interest. Last year, a sink hole that was 40-foot wide apparently had the appetite for a little extra iron when it decided to open up right beneath the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky. Measuring up to 30 feet deep, the sinkhole swallowed up a handful of prized Corvettes. One of those precious rides was a white 1992 LT1 convertible—the 1 millionth Corvette ever produced. Of all the cars that fell in, it’s said to be the toughest to restore—but restore it GM will… at least that’s what they’re trying to do.
General Motors Co. says it’s been restoring some prized Chevrolet Corvettes extracted from a sinkhole at a Kentucky museum. The Detroit-based automaker invited the media recently to see the vehicle before restoration begins next month at its Design Center Fabrication Operations in suburban Warren. The work is expected to take six months.
A 2009 ZR 1 was restored and returned to the museum. A 1962 model is expected to be worked on at a specialty shop.
The museum is near the factory where Corvettes are made.
