Chevrolet will oversee restoration project of the Corvettes damaged who fell victim to the massive sinkhole in the National Corvette Museum. General Motors Design in Warren, Michigan will lead the restoration project while Ed Welburn, Vice President of GM Global design, will oversee it.
“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,” said Mark Reuss, Executive Vice President of General Motors Global Product Development.
When the cars are recovered they will be shipped to the Mechanical Assembly facility which is a small specialty shop within GM Design. From there, the damaged Corvettes will undergo restoration.
The National Corvette Museum is independently owned and supported by donations from enthusiasts. It is currently accepting donations on its website (corvettemuseum.org) for repairing the facility.
