[VIDEO] Ressler Talks About Million Dollar Corvette ZR1 Delivery

Dave Ressler at the Corvette Assembly Plant

Dave Ressler, Chevrolet Dealer and the world’s first 2009 ZR1 owner talks about his new Corvette and his now-famous $1 million dollar donation to the United Way of Southeast Michigan. GMNext takes us inside the Corvette assembly plant where we see the LeMans Blue #0001 Corvette ZR1 roll off the assembly line, performance tested and then moved to a special display with one of Dave’s other Corvettes, 1953’s #003.

Ressler calls his ZR1 a “Corvette Z06 on Steroids” and that “it’s just that much of a better car”. Dave has been selling Chevys for thirty years and isn’t just towing the company line. It’s great to see that puts his own money into a car he believes in.

  1. I read the article in “Automobile” magazine on Peter Brock about how he sketched the drawings that would become the 63 corvette. The reference to the renderings caught my interest. I actually have two original renderings one dated 10-20-1957 using blue pencil a second dated 10-18-57 drawn in red pencil. one represents the 50’s model the second the 67 model. Any idea’s who I could contact to learn more about these drawings.

  2. The Ralph Braun Foundation will be selling the “bookend” Corvettes, the last one produced at the St. Louis plant and the first one produced at the Bowling Green plant at the Barrett-Jackson auction at Mandalay Bay in Vegas on September 24, 2010, with the proceeds going to the foundation for the purchase of equipment for disadvantage disabled children. They will sell on Fridat night, prime time (LIVE SPEED TV)
    Lot 373 – VIN 00001 (14 miles )
    Lot 373.1 VIN 31611 (4 miles)

    Both are 100% as they came off the line, still in wrappers! Both have not been shown to the public since 1982 and they have been maintained in perfect condition. Need to see to believe!
