We like a good automotive archeology tale and when we came across this “First Wash” video featuring a 1974 Corvette, we figured you would enjoy it as well. There is something very satisfying about watching that accumulated dirt and grime being washed away to reveal a beautiful Corvette Stingray.
The backstory on the Corvette is that it had been stored in a barn for at least 15 years and maybe even longer before the current owner bought it. The car was originally white but now is described as a Dark Purple. However, the color doesn’t fully reveal itself until the water starts flowing.
After a very refreshing pre-wash, the Corvette receives the business end of a foam cannon, and then finally an orbital polisher is run over the car which provides a great “after” pic from how the car looked when it was first pushed out the garage.
