Chevrolet will give its full restoration support for the unlucky Corvettes, that were damaged or totaled in the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

As we have already mentioned, a massive sinkhole has swallowed eight of the rare American muscle cars that are on permanent exhibition at the museum. The accident occured yesterday.

Once the floor ruins are cleared, the cars will be shipped to GM Design’s Mechanical Assembly shop. The best restoration approach will be determinated then. The whole process will be carefully monitored by GM's Global Design vice pressident Ed Welburn.

“The vehicles at the National Corvette Museum are some of the most significant in automotive history. There can only be one 1-millionth Corvette ever built. We want to ensure as many of the damaged cars are restored as possible, so fans from around the world can enjoy them when the Museum reopens," Mark Reuss, executive vice president of General Motors global product development, says.

These Corvettes are now waiting for a full restoration:

  • 1962 Black Corvette
  • 1984 PPG Pace Car
  • 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette
  • 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
  • 1993 ZR-1 Spyder
