This 1962 Corvette Looks Like New After First Wash in 30 Years

The Chevrolet Corvette you can buy today is nothing like the first generation model. The car has come a long way from its humble beginnings in the early 1950s, but the original remains an icon.

And we would not like to see him fall into the dust. Fortunately, a thorough wash and detailing helped restore the sports car to its near-original glory, writes Motor1.

It sat for 30 years, collecting dust and animal droppings. Of those, he spent 20 years in a shed, and another 10 in a warehouse. However, unlike some forgotten vehicles, this car was well taken care of before being sent into storage.

Although it is dirty, including the interior, the seats are shiny and have no tears or holes. No major external damage either.

It looks dirty, but that's not alarming, even though there's tons of mouse poop everywhere. Under the seats, in the engine compartment, on the engine and in the trunk. Mice have also made makeshift homes by stuffing rubbish into the crevices, and the car is covered in dirty animal prints, from rats to raccoons.

The seats are dirty, but after cleaning they look like new, and the inserts have turned from dirty gray to black. The carpet was a challenge due to its foam backing and thick fibers that picked up tons of debris, but the pieces look pristine when returned back to Chevrolet.

The odometer shows only 11,282 miles, and the 1987 sticker says that it clocked 10,985 miles, about two years before the owner parked it for good, and its condition reflects that. The seats look new, the paint still shines with love, and the interior looks like a pleasant place to spend a Saturday afternoon – after a thorough disinfection.
