Astronaut’s grandson partners on project to restore rare Apollo 15 ‘AstroVette’

A rare customized Corvette is set to receive a full restoration, 51 years after its one-time owner launched with the first car to be driven on the moon.

Project AstroVette Endeavour (opens in new tab) aims to return a classic white coupe to its fresh-off-the-factory-lot 1971 condition, when it was it was one of three matching Corvettes leased to NASA’s Apollo 15 crew. The restoration is a joint effort between Will Penczak, grandson of command module pilot Al Worden, and Luna Replicas, the space collectibles company licensed to reproduce the late astronaut’s flight jacket.
