Corvette Plant is Safe

Corvette Plant is Safe

November 30, 2018 0 By Mike Vietro

You may have heard the news that GM is closing 5 plants, and that the global workforce of salaried and salaried contract workers will be cut by 15 percent, including a 25 percent cut in GM executives; an estimated cut of 14,000 jobs.

The good news is that the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky is not among the five plants set to cease production next year.

Like Ford announced a few months ago, GM is calling the closing of the five plants a “transformation”, and in its corporate announcement, said the company is going to focus on trucks, crossovers, SUVs and electric vehicles.

The GM plants to be closed are in Maryland and Ohio, as well as two in Michigan and one in Canada. Those plants produce sedans, as well as the Chevy Cruze compact and the Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid.

Featured Corvette of the Week

1958-silver-blue-fuelie-convertible-00051958 Silver Blue Big Brake Fuelie

This is a beautiful ’58 that dates way back to a So California origin. Verified by well known Corvette Racing Historian, Jim Gessner, and has been collector owned for most of its life.

This rare 58′ has some interesting and very rare options in its own right! Ordered with the top-tier 283/290hp fuel injected small block engine, 4-speed manual transmission, hard top (only) and power windows.But what really sets it apart from the rest is the ultra-rare RPO 684 Heavy Duty Brake and Suspension option. This gave you special front and rear springs and shocks, heavier front stabilizer bar, quicker steering adaptor, metallic brakes, finned brake drums, fresh air ducting to the rear brakes, and air deflectors, aka Elephant Ears for the front brakes..

The car has been meticulously restored and features reproduction Hilabrand pin drive wheels and aero headlight covers (the chrome bezels are included). Paperwork includes the Owner’s Kit, a binder with restoration receipts and photos of the restoration. To say this ’58 is striking is an understatement.
