Yesterday, Chevrolet and General Motors officially unveiled the one-millionth Corvette after it underwent a tedious restoration process, following its damage from the National Corvette Museum sinkhole disaster.
If you’re having a hard time imagining how long and hard of a process the restoration was, the NCM has provided a time-lapse of the work for our viewing pleasure. It conveniently condenses 1,200 worth of labor into just over two minutes, showing the beginning crumpled 1992 C4 Corvette convertible enter the Warren Technical Center, to its completion and everything in-between.
Now that the 1992 C4 Corvette has been completed, including the preservation of the assemblers’ autographs on nearly every panel of the car, it will remain back at the NCM for museum-goers to gawk over once again.
The time-lapse is only a snapshot of how talented the team was to restore the car to its former glory, and the attention to detail was not overlooked.
