There’s no higher calling than taking care of our veterans after they’ve left the service and now Chevrolet is teaming up with a former President George W. Bush with just that goal in mind.
Chevrolet will be returning to Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale sale in January with a special 2018 Corvette Z06 Carbon 65 Edition Coupe that will be sold with the proceeds going to the George W. Bush Presidental Center. This auction will benefit the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative which seeks to help post-9/11 veterans and their families to make successful transitions back to civilian life.
Here is GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra and President George W. Bush talking about support for veterans, the Carbon 65 Edition and the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative:
GM currently employs more than 6,000 veterans and counts another 50,000 GM retirees who are veterans as well. GM support for veterans goes back decades and today that support ranges from employment initiatives to housing programs, and vehicle discounts.
The Ceramic Matrix Gray 2018 Carbon 65 Edition is a limited-production anniversary edition celebrating Corvette’s 65 years. The package is offered on the Grand Sport and Z06 with a total of 650 cars produced. The package is priced at $15,000 and requires a 3LT Grand Sport or 3LZ Z06. Chevrolet is offering the special edition Corvette in both Coupe and Convertible models.
The VIN 001 Carbon 65 Edition Z06 Coupe signed by President George W. Bush will be offered for sale on Saturday, January 20th a 7:30 ET at Barrett-Jackson.com. For more details about the Barrett-Jackson auction and how to bid on this special Corvette.
