Corvette Delivery Dispatch with National Corvette Seller Mike Furman for Dec. 11th


Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingray, Grand Sports and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.

In this week’s Delivery Dispatch, Mike reminisces about some previous Corvettes that crossed his path over the years including a 1958 Corvette he appraised back in 1989. Mike offers up many new Corvette deliveries this week and his batch of throwbacks, barn find and other Corvettes total nearly 50 photos. As always, you can follow his deliveries on his facebook page, CorvetteFurman.

~As we inch closer to the Holidays I always get asked the question…"How are Corvette sales now that it’s cold and Winter is setting in?" My response has been the same for Decades…"I sell Nationwide and the Weather is pretty darn good in half the States." Now I’m not a fan of Winter because I like driving my own Corvette and playing Golf so this Season puts a crimp on me doing that but Spring will come soon enough and the Corvette orders will flow just as they have the past 39+ years I have been doing this job.

~You can tell I have been involved with Corvettes for a long time when this week I came across this picture from 1989! It’s me appraising a 1958 Corvette for a trade in on a new car!!…and then just about four years ago (2012) I went to a customers garage only two miles from Criswell and when they opened the garage it was this exact Corvette!! I said immediately that it originally was a Fuel injected 1958 Corvette. They asked how I knew so fast and I told them I had last seen this Corvette in 1989! Small world.

~and then I came across from 1979 a picture of me (in red) visiting a customer on a random Sunday at his Gas Station with his 1969 Corvette that I sold him…

~ A Forum Member from California had seen a picture of Bruce Springsteen that I had posted and I told him about a group of brothers from Pearl River, NY (and I grew up the neighboring town of Montvale, NJ) that were very good friends with Bruce. So he mailed me Bruce’s new book this past week and I thumb thru the book and there in living color is a picture of Bruce and the Three Delia brothers! I was pleasantly surprised. They were all great guys and have thought of them often. My brother was really close with them. The memories definitely flooded back as I have a ton of Bruce stories from the 70’s and 80’s.

~Pics from Bruce’s book….Bruce used to store that Corvette of his at the Delia’s GoodYear Tire store in Montvale, NJ.

~Frank C. From Harrisburg, PA reached out to me in 2012 to buy what he stated as his "last" Corvette…well he bought a 2013 then two 2014’s, a 2016 and 6 weeks ago he factory ordered his 5th Corvette from me. Yesterday he sent two drivers down the 100 miles to trade in his ’16 on his new ’17 Corvette Grand Sport Cpe in Sterling Blue with Two tone Gray/Black interior, 2LT Pkg, Heritage Pkg with gray fender stripes and gray full length stripe, red calipers, chrome wheels and Auto trans. Frank is now 80 years young and I await his next Corvette order!! I called him and he is beyond thrilled with his Factory ordered GS! Frank estimates this is his 20th Corvette that he has owned, and he still has a 57 Corvette that he drives most of the Summer!

~Chris R. of Melville, NY had his Collectors Edition shipped from Criswell to his home in Long Island so we have never met but he responded in a two part GM Survey the following letter and I thought I would share his kind words.

"By far the best car buying experience that I’ve ever had. Mike Furman is the best! He’s a true professional who followed through on his promise to make me satisfied. He was responsive to my every question and in a timely fashion and he was able to get me my dream car ahead of any competitor. Criswell and Mike Furman are the only names you need when buying a Corvette. They make it happen!" "As previously stated, Mike Furman gave me a level of comfort from my first conversation with him. He truly delivered on his promise, getting me my dream car and making this the easiest car buying experience that I’ve ever had. It’s hard to believe it was all done via email, phone and FedEx. Criswell has a gem in Mike and I’d be happy to work with and recommend him again. It should also be noted that his Business Office did a great job executing the paperwork expeditiously and allowed for the delivery to happen sooner than expected. Again, this was truly a great experience all around so much so that I want to make the 5 hour drive to meet and thank they guys personally." – Chris R. Melville, Long Island NY
