2020 C8 Corvette Dropped From Lift In Florida Is Now For Sale

The drop heard around the world has transformed this Chevy Corvette into a parts car

  • The 2020 Chevy Corvette that was dropped from a Florida dealership lift is now for sale

  • The C8 is listed as “run and drive”, but there’s part of the AC system in the trunk


Last month a Florida dealership dropped a brand-new Chevy Corvette C8 from a lift in the service area, and in the process made one client very unhappy.

If you recall correctly, the owner of the fallen Corvette, Jake Miller, learned about the “accident” over social media when dealership employees posted pictures of the C8 Chevy Corvette after it fell off the lift. As you can imagine, that just made matters worst. The poor guy only managed to put 3,418 miles on his new pride and joy before the Jacksonville, Florida dealership forgot about the C8 Corvette’s unique jacking points.

It appears the owner wasn’t able to salvage the car, or simply chose not too as the C8 Corvette is now for sale on Copart. The original value of the car was $64,995 according to CorvetteBlogger. There’s no price associated with the damaged Corvette, but the estimated value is set at $58,000. It will be available shortly for sale.

The listing for the car states that it is in “run and drive” condition, but we also see a picture of part of the air conditioning system located in the trunk. That certainly would disqualify the C8 from being drivable. Moreover, the listing states the damage as being “all over”.

On the other hand, the 6.2-litre V8 making 495 horsepower as well as the dual-clutch gearbox are still intact. The interior seems pretty clean as well.

The parts that can be salvaged seem extensive, and we can already see the possibilities. Maybe take that V8 and put it in a C3 or C4 Corvette. Or you can take the seats and install them in your C6 Z06. Granted, $58k is a lot for seats, but still. Or, someone will buy it and rebuild it, banking on the idea that C8 Corvettes are so rare, even salvaged units will increase in value.
