The restoration process of the 1 millionth Chevrolet Corvette which was wrecked by a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum at the start of 2014 has commenced.
While eight Corvettes were destroyed or wrecked by the sinkhole, Chevrolet will only be restoring three of them. Last year, the 2009 Corvette ZR1 ‘Blue Devil’ prototype was repaired and The National Corvette Museum itself will repair the third car, a 1962 Corvette.
Compared to the ‘Blue Devil’ Corvette, the damage sustained to the 1 millionth Corvette is significantly more severe. It will inevitably require the fitment of a new bonnet, windscreen, wing mirrors and front bumper. Additionally, it is likely that some suspension damage was sustained when the American sports car fell into the sinkhole. The interior has also seen better days and will require a comprehensive clean and some new parts.
