[VIDEO] Another Look at George Talley's Stolen, Recovered and Now Restored 1979 Corvette

Last week at the GM Heritage Center, Detroit resident George Talley got the first look at his restored 1979 Corvette after General Motors graciously went to work on the car for the veteran in advance of this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Corvette will be part of Chevrolet’s display at the Woodward Dream Cruise, which is officially billed as the world’s largest automotive event.

We’ve been following the feel-good story of George Talley and his stolen 1979 Corvette. If you remember, George’s 1979 Corvette was stolen 34 years ago and last summer it showed up in Mississippi. GM’s Mark Reuss heard about the car and after seeing George on the evening news, decided to get involved and had the car shipped back to George’s Detroit home.

Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.

We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.

GM is doing it again for an elderly Corvette enthusiast whose stolen Corvette was returned to him last year after being stolen on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit 33 years earlier.

You may remember that George Talley, then 71 years old, didn’t know how he would get his recovered Corvette back to Detroit from Mississippi, where it was finally located by AAA.

Well, GM’s Mark Reuss, executive vice president for GM Product Development, stepped in and offered to have GM ship the car back to George’s home in Michigan.

It was meant to be. How else can you describe it?

Terry Dietrich was born in 1953, the same year that the first Corvette rolled out of the factory.

That coincidence sparked a love affair for the Corvette that ultimately led to her decision as a 19-year-old to buy a brand new Corvette Stingray in 1972.
