[VIDEO] 1968 Corvette Time-Lapse Tear Down border=

Many Corvette owners have never torn their cars apart, content to drive them just the way they are or pay someone else to do the dirty restoration work.

Sure enough, once the Stingray Convertibles started production, Chevrolet announced that 550 Convertible Premiere Editions in Lime Rock Green would be produced.
