One Millionth Corvette Rolls Off Assembly Line

On July 2, 1992, the one millionth Corvette rolled off the line in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was a white C4 convertible with a red interior, powered by a 350 CID LT1 engine. Zora Arkus-Duntov, then 83 years old, was on hand along with every employee who signed a piece of the car. The 1,000,000th Corvette rolled across the Bowling Green plant to a cavalcade of applause, balloons, and orchestral music, then went directly across the street to the National Corvette Museum. It remained in the museum without ever being driven and was one of the casualties that fell through the museum skydome's floor on February 12, 2014. The sinkhole swallowed up 8 of the rarest Corvettes, including a 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" prototype.

Fortunately, after four months and 1200 man-hours of extensive restoration and untold fortunes of labor costs, GM craftsmen saved nearly every single body panel and even straightened the original frame and windshield surround. The now fully restored one-of-a-kind Corvette sits restfully once again in its original home at the National Corvette Museum.
