It’s been a few months since we last talked about the Lost Corvettes, but we’ve been following this story for 15 years. Thirty-Six Corvettes ranging chronologically from 1953-1989 were given away to one winner in a famous 1989 VH1 contest. The collection was purchased from the original winner and then stored away for decades by pop artist Peter Max. A group called the Corvette Heroes rescued the long-forgotten collection and now each of the 36 Corvettes is offered in a sweepstakes fundraiser for the National Guard Educational Foundation.
These Corvettes have undergone restoration at Dream Car Restorations on Long Island with the crew focusing on mechanics, interior, and paint. The Covid lockdowns slowed the original pace of the giveaways since the contest was first announced, but now we are down to the final eight Corvettes in the collection. The group includes some of the most desirable years for collectors and enthusiasts alike! Enter by January 10th for your chance to win a 1953, 1956, 1966, 1967, 1969, 1976, 1981, or a 1985 Corvette.
Check out these highlights of the remaining Lost Corvettes:
- 1953, the first year of the Corvette and one of only 300 built
- 1956, which features the rare color of Cascade Green and is the actual car Jerry Seinfeld drove on an episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
- 1966, a coupe in the Nassau Blue color with a white interior
- 1967, a replica of the famous Ko-Motion Corvette
- 1969, a replica of the rarest production Corvette, the ZL1
- 1976, black with red interior
- 1981, white with red interior
- 1985, L98 with Z51 handling package
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.
