Cue the music and the dancing girls because we got great news from Chevrolet regarding the C7 Corvette. The automaker has confirmed that shipping the new 2014 Corvette Stingrays to dealers begins today.
According the GM, the Bowling Green Assembly Plant has produced approximately 1,000 new Corvette Stingrays for customers with most of the C7 Coupes scheduled for delivery to dealers over the next few weeks.
As the Corvette Stingrays have accumulated behind the plant, GM has been working to expedite delivery which may cause vehicles to be shipped out of build sequence. “The new Corvette Stingray Coupes will be shipped to dealers as efficiently as possible,” says Monte Doran of Chevrolet Communications.
That means that someone with a VIN sequence of 800 might get their Corvette before the guy that has a VIN of 300. This is a normal part of any new vehicle launch and the process will equalize after a few weeks.
“It’s an amazing sight to see the transporters filled with Stingrays heading to customers in all corners of the country,” said Dave Tatman, plant manager of General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly plant. “The pride at Bowling Green is overwhelming and it shows in the tremendous quality and attention to detail going into each one of these new Corvettes.”
Doran tells us that the Corvette Stingrays are being shipped both by car transport and by rail depending on the destination and all new Corvettes will be shipped wearing a white protective cover as well.
CorvetteBlogger will be talking with Chevrolet’s John Fitzpatrick on Friday about the shipping process. If you have any questions regarding the ordering and shipping of a new Corvette Stingray, please let us know.
