Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays, Grand Sports and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top individual Corvette seller.
In this week’s Delivery Dispatch, Mike pays his respects to a long-time customer who recently passed away. RIP Frank Class! Mike shares some of his recent Corvette deliveries including a new Grand Sport Coupe that went to a Maserati owner. This week, the last delivery of 2018 Corvettes reach Criswell Chevrolet and that’s all there will be until November. Mike has well over 100+ Corvettes in stock so if you want to be driving a new Corvette this summer, give him a call. As always, enjoy this week’s selection of throwbacks, barn finds and vintage Corvette photos.
Check out even more photos and videos of his deliveries on his facebook page, CorvetteFurman.
~Over the past 40 years I have come across many repeat customers and some stick out in my mind more then others. Last month I received notice from a Corvette Enthusiast in PA that Frank Class of Harrisburg, PA had passed away after a short bout with Cancer. I first met Frank late Feb 2013…why do I remember you ask? Because Frank was 75 at the time and had owned 40+Corvettes and still had his 1957 Corvette, his first. He stated to me he wanted to buy his last Corvette for his 75th Birthday. Well as it turned out…March 2014, March 2015 and March 2016 he bought his "next" last Corvette from me until finally in late October 2016 he actually wanted to place a factory order for his "last"Corvette. Dec 6th 2016 he took delivery of a 2017 Corvette Grand Sport cpe in Sterling Blue with Gray two tone interior. He couldnt make the 100 mile drive down to Criswell the last few times and we did the deal over the phone as I would give him a sight unseen trade value and then fed ex him the paperwork. He would send a couple of guys down to do the exchange. Frank was born with the correct last name as he was all Class in my book. This past week his daughter called me and I gave her guidance on liquidating his "17" vehicles that he owns…including his 1957 Corvette that he was so proud of and his real last Corvette, the Factory ordered Grand Sport that he was so apologetic for getting an Auto trans as all the others were manual shift. He said at 80 years of age he should consider something easier for him. Well Frank you will be missed and I want you to know I appreciated knowing you and talking Cars with you. Frank loved reading my weekly delivery posts so I would email them to him every Sunday morning. Franks favorite night was Saturday night so here I am on my birthday night spending a few hours putting this post together in his memory. Here’s to Frank!
~I will be at Corvettes at Carlisle Wednesday the 23rd thru Saturday the 26th. Stop by the Ron Fellows Spring Mountain Tent or the Callaway Tent and say hello.
~Jerry E. of Fairfax Station, Virginia was referred to me by the body shop Mgr as he was getting some work done on his Maserati. The other day we narrowed it down to this Yellow 2017 Grand Sport Cpe and after 1 quick test drive he was Sold. He and his son Will drove up today and took delivery of his 2nd Corvette that he has ever owned, the last one being a Torch Red 2004 Z06 Cpe. Jerry’s new Corvette GS has Auto trans, Heritage Pkg, full length racing stripe, CF badge Pkg, CF Instrument panel, yellow calipers, ultra cool machine faced wheels, Nav/PDR and much more. I know his son Will listened intently and he plans on keeping his Father in the know with the GO!
