Natural Disaster

Corvette Has Finally Restored The Sinkhole-Damaged 1 Millionth Corvette

It’s like nothing ever happened.

Do you remember when a massive sinkhole swallowed eight historic Corvettes last year? Well, fast forward to a year later and General Motors has finally finished restoring the 1 millionth Corvette C4. It’s taken approximately four months and 1,200 man-hours to get the Corvette back to its original glory, but we’d say the effort was definitely worth it. The vehicle was moved to GM’S Design’s Mechanical Assembly Group and Service Operations where 30 craftspeople, as well as technicians went to work on the vehicle.

According to Mark Reuss General Motors Executive Vice President: “When we disassembled it, we found that each employee involved in building it had signed a part of the car, which was fantastic and moving to see,” stated Reuss. Even with the Corvette’s extensive damage, the team attempted to preserve and repair as many original components as possible, including the parts that carried a signature. Only two signed components were unable to be recovered, but the team managed to scan the autographs and transfer them onto the replacement parts. This is only the second Corvette to be restored by GM following the “Blue Devil” prototype and we have to say that the C4 looks better than ever.
