A second generation Chevrolet Corvette has managed to clock more than 500,000 miles (804,762 km).

The mechanic of a second-gen Chevrolet Corvette says the vehicle had only one owner since 1965 and up until this day it has been his daily driver. The owner is now approaching his 70s but still continues to use the vehicle fitted with a four-speed manual gearbox, despite getting knee replacement surgery.

According to the mechanic, he has been in charge of the C2 for the last ten years and the vehicle is in almost perfect condition, even though it's almost half a century old and has travelled for more than 500,000 miles. It rides on 15-inch alloys shod in 215/70 R15 tires and the only intervention it needs is a new paintjob since the current one has faded and has lots of chips.
