Tornado-Damaged C8 Corvettes Are Being Parted Out on eBay


Tornado-Damaged C8 Corvettes Are Being Parted Out on eBay

It was back on December 11th that a twister ripped through south-central Kentucky harming properties and organizations alike. The Corvette Assembly Plant was ruined as well with the roof catching hearth although also allowing for h2o to fall on the however-to-be-accomplished 2022 model year Corvettes on the assembly line. Luckily for us no staff were being hurt in the tornado strike but up to 122 C8 Corvettes would be scrapped.&#13

We previously shared drone footage a couple weeks immediately after the twister that showed the ruined Corvettes in a fenced great deal guiding the assembly plant. In one of all those films, you could see all all those Corvettes ended up wearing an “X” which was spray-painted on the windshield to designate the automobile for destruction. And last but not least, at the stop of January, a Fb user shared images of three of these Corvettes on the back of a trailer headed to an unfamiliar spot.&#13

Now, thanks to CorvetteBlogger reader Doug H., we now know that these Corvettes are remaining parted out on eBay. Doug sent us the connection to a single these auction for a set of open spoke black aluminum wheels. Within just the established of shots it showed a motor vehicle lacking overall body panels and on the windshield was a large X. That listing finished with the vendor taking a “Best Offer” sum. Looking more via the eBay retailer, we arrived throughout a complete boatload of 2022 Corvette sections which include this “Convertible Ability Folding Roof” that is provided for $2,999.99. People photos also clearly show a Torch Purple Corvette with an X on the windshield.&#13

Another eBay listing is for a “pre-owned” 2022 Steering wheel which was taken off a Hypersonic Grey car and a picture was taken of the odometer demonstrating “0 Miles” proving that these cars hardly ever still left the plant under their very own ability.&#13

The C8 Corvette Pieces are staying made available by Stricker Car Areas in Batavia, OH. We never know if they were being acquiring all of the 120+ tornado-destroyed autos or if they gained just a part, but there is now one more resource for proprietors and mend shops who want a substitution section for an incident not covered under guarantee. Some C8 Corvette Sections have been particularly tricky to come throughout which has brought about some homeowners to be without the use of their vehicles for weeks and even months. So that is a little something to consider…&#13

The international hazard industry site known as The Insurance company estimated the total affect of the Assembly Plant’s hurt from the tornado to be upwards of $225 million which includes $175 million for actual physical destruction to assets, machines, and automobiles, and an additional $50 million to include small business interruption losses that transpired when the plant was shut down for repairs.&#13
