GM: Restoration on Two Damaged Corvettes To Start Next Month
General Motors Co. says work will begin in January to restore two prized Chevrolet Corvettes extracted from a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green
GM has received two of the classic vehicles that were among eight gobbled up by a 40-foot-wide by 60-foot deep hole in February at the museum. Among them is the 1 millionth Corvette, a 1992 model, which had significant damage.
The Detroit-based automaker invited the media Wednesday 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.
