I just sold a ’97 Corvette with 82,000 miles on the odometer, and I thought that was a lot.
It’s hard to imagine, though, that there’s another C5 that has way more miles than mine, in fact nearly nine times as many!
You may recall hearing about a fellow named Mark who posted a video a while back telling about his 2000 Corvette that had racked up 650,000 miles.
Now he’s back with an update, and his little red Corvette now has a whopping 709,972 miles on the clock!
“And it keeps rolling,” Mark says.
“I appreciate what it’s done for me.”
Who can argue with that?
Mark says he’s waiting to hear back from General Motors and the Corvette Museum to see if there’s any interest in his car on their end.
“I truly doubt there’s ever been another Corvette with this number of miles,” Mark says.
We’d sure love to see his car get some recognition from GM and the NCM. The new 35-second video doesn’t really tell us much about the history of the car, so we don’t know if it’s the original motor still under the hood. But regardless, if you have doubts about the overall long-term durability of a Corvette, this should settle them.
“The car’s still in great shape for a 2000,” Mark says.
Especially a 2000 with nearly three-quarters of a million miles under its belt.
