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.
You normally see Mike’s posts on Sunday Mornings, but a well-needed family vacation pre-empted new posts over the weekend and into Monday.
Mike has some great stuff in this week’s post so I wanted to get it out as soon as I could. Check out the shipment of Sebring Orange Corvettes that were received from the plant. Mike discusses the new Sebring Orange and we see several deliveries to new customers. Other Corvette deliveries are featured as well as a huge collection of throwbacks and vintage photos.
Make sure to visit his facebook page for even more photos and videos of his new Corvette deliveries: CorvetteFurman.
~The first truckload of Sebring Orange Tint coat has certainly created a stir in the Corvette world. I sent out a mass email to my Corvette customers and those that live in close proximity to Criswell came for a first-hand look. Yesterday(Saturday) I wrote 8 Factory orders and delivered 4 others…of the 8 Corvette orders, 5 are Sebring Orange. I also spoke with 3-4 customers on the phone that will be ordering and 2 of those will be ordered in Sebring Orange as well. Now clearly it’s a brand new color and enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for a new Orange to choose from so I am sure it will still be a 5+/-%. Which means 5% or less of the total Corvette production will be painted Sebring Orange. In comparison Black, Torch Red and White are all in the 16-18% range of total production. Speaking of new colors…expect Watkins Glen Gray to be replaced by a new Gray in May….and a new Blue sometime in the Fall to be released.
*2019 Corvette production began last week…I sell and deliver Nationwide…next week I have 5 new Corvettes being drop shipped to California, Utah, Florida, Oregon and Ohio along with a few Museum deliveries being scheduled. Call my desk direct line 301-212-4420 or email [email protected] and I will show you how seamless I can make the whole process.
~2019 ZR1’s spotted in the Michigan snow…GM execs testing in real-world situation. Retail production ZR1’s begin in March and most likely be released in April. This will be a slow rollout much like watching Molasses pour.
~Clay (Foosh) and his wife Lee Anne of Lothian, MD came by Thursday and for them…Orange is the new Black. Clay and I have known each other in the Corvette Forums of the World for at least a dozen years. Couple months ago Clay placed his factory order for a 2018 Z51 Convt in Sebring Orange and I gave him a sight unseen value on his 2014 Corvette Convt. Confirmed by GM…Only two Sebring Orange Z51 convt’s were produced for the 2018 model year and this is the only 7 Spd manual!Clay factory ordered a Z51 Convt with 7 Spd manual trans, magnetic ride control, Black wheels and 2LT Pkg!
In Clay’s own words from his forum post…"With all the new car delivery excitement, I am remiss in stating what is I’m sure obvious to many here, but maybe not to many others. Ordering, buying, and taking delivery of a car from Mike Furman is a fantastic experience. Not only does he know the product to an extraordinary degree, he makes it fun. I’ve purchased probably 60 vehicles over the years, and this was the most fun ever. My wife even had a blast, although I think she now has a crush on Mr. Furman. I knew something was up when she had taken one of the Furman posters that was in the trunk, and put it up on the garage refrigerator." Clay "Foosh"
