The National Corvette Museum (NCM) dedicated Monday, March 3rd to “Operation Corvette Plus”, which resulted in the recovery of the 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil and 1993 40th Anniversary Vettes from the museum’s massive sinkhole. The NCM then spent pretty much all of Tuesday rescuing the 1962 Corvette.
The car was pulled out of the hole around 13:45 CT and, outside of some body damage, seems to be in good shape.
“I see body damage. The chassis looks intact, the frame’s not bent, the interior (other than being a little dirty) is pristine. So, I think it’s some fiberglass work, some ornamentation work, and paint,” said John Spencer, Manufacturing Integration Manager at the GM Corvette Assembly Plant. “This car is in amazing shape considering what it’s been through. I don’t see anything unrepairable.”
