We’ve been following the exploits of “The Lost Corvettes” for nearly 15 years now – those 36 Vettes that range from 1953-1989 and were offered to one winner in the famous VH1 contest held back in 1989. The collection was purchased from the original winner and then stored away for decades by pop artist Peter Max. Now each of the 36 Corvettes is offered in a sweepstakes fundraiser for the National Guard Educational Foundation.
So far, the Corvette Heroes have awarded 16 Corvettes in the contest: 1954, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1963, 1965, 1965, 1970, 1972, 1974, 1975, 1979, 1980, 1986, 1987, and 1988.
On May 28th, they will draw the names for the 1960, 1961, 1968, 1977, 1978, and 1984 Corvettes. If you previously purchased tickets, you are still eligible for these upcoming giveaways. Click here to be eligible for the May drawing by getting your tickets purchased by May 3rd.
The collection has been undergoing restoration and cleaning at Dream Car Restorations on Long Island. Each of the cars is given attention to the mechanics, interior, and paint are all being refreshed for their new owners after their decades-long storage. There have been several schedule changes since the contest was first announced, and the COVID pandemic also slowed everything down, but we would rather see that each of these Corvettes are presented in a condition where they can be reliably driven and enjoyed by their new owners.
The Lost Corvettes still offered include: ’53, ’55, ’56, ’60, ’61, ’62, ’66, ’67, ’68, ’69, ’71, ’73, ’76, ’77, ’78, ’81, ’82, ’84, ’85, ’89. The updated schedule shows there are three more drawings slated with six selected on May 28 (entry deadline May 3rd), another six on August 16th (entry deadline July 19th) and the drawing for the final eight Corvettes is scheduled for October 18th (entry deadline September 20th).
Corvette Heroes will be offering each of the Corvettes with proceeds to benefit the National Guard Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Tickets for The Lost Corvettes start at $3 each with bonus ticket levels beginning at $25 and up. Corvette Heroes even pays the winner’s taxes.
Nearly 470,000 Citizen Soldiers and Airmen comprise the Army and Air National Guard. Founded in 1975, the National Guard Educational Foundation’s purpose is to tell the Guard’s story. Located in the National Guard Memorial Building in Washington, D.C., NGEF relies solely on charitable contributions to carry out its mission to present the rich heritage and continuing contributions of the National Guard of the United States.
