Military Vette

Take a Tour of the Vette

All 325 HP of Chevy Corvette

The Military Vette is a 1992 six speed Corvette convertible. It sports a ground effects package, an optional hardtop, and the Chevy 350 LT-1 engine under the hood.

The original exterior design was installed in the form of digital graphics in early 2007. In October of 2012, the Military Vette and her trailer underwent a complete overhaul and redesign. The new graphics include not only airbrushing and six coats of clear coat finish, but also the "Wall of Remembrance" of all of the troops who have perished in our war against terrorism. Now traveling America, she serves as a powerful reminder of the cost of freedom, and of our nation's godly heritage.
