FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAST CHANCE TO WIN ONE OF THE LAST EIGHT OF THE LOST CORVETTES,
INCLUDING A RARE 1953 AND A 1956 FEATURED IN EPISODE OF “COMEDIANS IN CARS GETTING COFFEE” WITH JERRY SEINFELD

 

CHICAGO (Jan. 10, 2022) – A 1953 Corvette, one of only 300 made and worth several hundred thousand dollars, the 1956 Corvette featured in “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” with Jerry Seinfeld and Jimmy Fallon, and a 1969 Corvette, a replica of the ZL1, the rarest production Corvette ever made, are among the “Elite Eight” cars still available in The Lost Corvettes national sweepstakes benefiting disabled American veterans.

But if you want a chance to win one of these iconic Corvettes, you need to act quickly:  the deadline for entry is this coming Tuesday, January 11, at 3 AM Eastern time.  Tickets are only $3 each and are available at TheLostCorvettes.com.

Proceeds from the sweepstakes go to Stand for the Troops, a national non-profit organization that offers veterans who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury and other “invisible wounds of war” safe, effective medical treatments, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Low-level Light Therapy, Neurofeedback, and other treatments to help them get their lives back.

The Lost Corvettes, which are also known as the Peter Max Collection, are a collection of 36 classic Corvettes – one each from 1953, the year the iconic muscle car was introduced by Chevrolet, to 1989 – that comprise the sweepstakes. All 36 of the cars were once owned by the legendary pop artist Peter Max.  He was going to use them as canvases for one-of-a-kind pieces of art.  But he let them fail into disrepair in a series of New York City parking garages for more than 25 years.  A group of New York businessmen and philanthropists formed a group called the Corvette Heroes and bought the cars a few years ago.  They spent the time since bringing them back to their former glory and giving them away through the sweepstakes.  Twenty-eight of the cars have been awarded since the sweepstakes was launched.

The “Elite Eight” Corvettes still available are: 
1953, number 191 of the only 300 that were produced that year;
1956, the exact car used in the episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” that was hosted by Jerry Seinfeld and featured Jimmy Fallon;
1966, with the beautiful Nassau blue color and white interior;
1967, a replica of one of the most famous racecars on the East Coast, the K-Motion Corvette;
1969, a replica of the rarest production Corvette ever made, the ZL1;
1976, a black and white Corvette that is from the last year of the C3 Generation String Rays;
1981, the last year the Corvettes were produced at the company’s St. Louis factory;
1985, one of the cars from the first year the L98 engine was used in the C4 Corvette.
