1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Gets Completely Gutted In Minutes

Sit back and watch this Vette go from complete car to bare body in no time flat in these two videos!

As we’re sure you’re well aware, tearing down a vehicle is no easy task. Although the owner of this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette could rewrite the book on that. It involves hours of ultra-laborious and sometimes a back-breaking task of dismantling bolts, hardware and major components all while probably consuming a couple cold ones from the cooler.

What seems like a couple nuts and bolts can quickly manifest itself into a pile of miscellaneous parts for which their original location is instantaneously forgotten. It’s the type of weekend project that doesn't ever stop until the vehicle is nothing more than a body and chassis albeit with the help from a couple buddies.

Moreover, that’s just the main components – the ones that are easily accessible. Let’s not even begin to think about the entire drivetrain or dust that’s created when the interior is tackled. If you’ve ever removed 30 plus year old threads from the interior, you’ll know pulling out the carpet and sound deadening material is an exercise in lung capacity.

Though Manuel Carrillo III from Corvette Forum said it best, “Only Superman, and maybe a few other comic book protagonists can tear down a vehicle in five minutes or less…” We couldn't agree more. If you’re looking for some motivation to get that project car in the garage gutted, we’ve got the videos just for you. We caught wind of this epic tear down video from Corvette Forum and we couldn't help but share our findings with you. Better yet, we’re treated with a full tear down of the Corvette in a matter of minutes rather than days.

At this point, we can only help this initial, part one and two videos are followed up by a sequel. This was awesome. As we're sure you have already watch the first part at the top, enjoy round two right here below.

CA isn't as great as you might think. All this wonderful rust free stuff is unaffordable to most, and so is any labor you can't do yourself.

Must be a California thing, try busting rusted bolts loose without snapping them off.

I've disassembled my 69 mustang from a running driving car to a hull sitting on jack stands with parts all around it in less than 8 hours with no assistance.
