1962 Chevrolet Sinkhole Corvette
Posted by Mr Mike on Saturday, August 19, 2017 3:36 PM
On February 12, 2014 at 5:44 AM, a massive sinkhole opened up under the floor of the Skydome at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.  Eight Corvettes were swallowed up by the sinkhole and it took several weeks for all eight cars to be recovered.  The last Corvette to be recovered was completely destroyed.  It was a privately owned 2001 Z06 Corvette modified by a company called Mallett Cars, Inc. and was known as the Mallett Hammer.  It was not an historic car, but still, it was a special one.
 
My build will be of the third Corvette to be recovered from the sinkhole...a Tuxedo Black 1962 Corvette with a red interior.  I painted my Revell '62 Vette with Tamiya TS-14 Gloss Black with a Model Master Insignia Red interior.  I built this Vette OOB since I was unable to find a dual carb setup which the actual Vette has.
