The 1.5 Millionth Corvette is Out of the Sinkhole - Battered but Better than Others

The team working on the extraction process at the National Corvette Museum was able to remove the 1.5 millionth Chevrolet Corvette from the debris in the sinkhole and while it was badly damaged, it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as the ZR-1 Spyder Concept as it appears that the majority of the car is still intact.

The 1.5 millionth Chevrolet Corvette is a 2009 Convertible in white with silver stripes and having landed upside down in the sinkhole, the level of damage to the top of the car is almost expected. The windshield is crushed, the interior is destroyed and – like the PPG pace car – much of the upper rear end of the car has been ripped away. However, the 1.5 millionth Corvette still wears its original hood, front fascia and passenger side door along with the door frame for the driver’s side, minus the fiberglass outer panel. It also appears as though the headlights were claimed by the sinkhole, but all in all you can still tell that this was a C6 Corvette while the 93 ZR-1 Spyder was hardly recognizable as a Corvette.
