Win Both Corvettes Plus $50,000 for the taxes!
Back for its 11th year is America’s favorite Corvette giveaway contest – the 2018 Corvette Dream Giveaway!
Over the years we’ve seen some great pairings of new Corvettes with a classic Corvette that served as the grand prizes. At first glance, the 2018 Corvette Dream Giveaway looks to follow the same formula, however, the folks at the Dream Giveaway Garage wanted to mix things up a bit from previous giveaways. That’s why this year’s Corvette prizes are all about drivability.
1965 Corvette Sting Ray Restomod
Let’s start with the classic Corvette. This is no ordinary Sting Ray. This is a 1965 Corvette restomod that has been upgraded with many modern performance features and amenities. You can see the difference just in the stance of the Sting Ray. Wider tires, bigger brakes, and a modern suspension make this car a thrill to drive.
Power is generated from Chevy’s LS3 small-block which will be enhanced by Lingenfelter Performance with a heads and cam package plus a custom tune that will make 550 horsepower. The engine is coupled to a Tremec 5-speed transmission so you’ll be able to drive the restomod ’65 Sting Ray just about anywhere.
The 1965 Corvette exterior is painted in Arctic White with a Red Stinger hood while on the inside is the very desirable red leather interior. Other amenities include air-conditioning, power steering, and power brakes. The classic side pipe exhaust provides a soundtrack that is unmatched in our opinion.
The Restomod craze is one of the fastest growing segments of the classic car hobby with many restomods selling higher than their all-original counterparts. The Corvette Dream Giveaway is your chance to own a classic ’65 restomod Sting Ray. And that’s just the first Corvette in this two-car prize pack.
2018 Corvette Grand Sport
Chevrolet’s Grand Sport Corvette model occupies the “sweet spot” between the Corvette Stingray and the Z06 and again that plays into the “driveability” index of this years prize package. Whereas the Z06 can sometimes feel like too much car (and especially the Lingenfelter-enhanced 800-hp versions that have been featured in previous giveaways), the naturally-aspirated Corvette Grand Sport feels perfectly dialed in and is well-suited as a Corvette you can drive anywhere.
Lingenfelter will once again apply their tradecraft to the Grand Sport with ported heads, an ultra-performance cam and a custom tune that will coax 600 horsepower from the LT1.
Standard features on the Grand Sport include the performance suspension, magnetic ride control, slotted brake rotors, electronic limited-slip, rear differential cooler, a dry-sump oil system and the performance exhaust.
The Corvette Grand Sport also comes with the performance and luxury options including the 3LT Preferred Equipment Group, the Grand Sport’s aluminum wheels, and an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. Lingenfelter has added their own custom Grand Sport fender emblems, custom black and red hood callouts, plus a blacked-out roof panel and body-colored A-pillars.
On the inside, the Grand Sport shows off the Adrenaline Red leather interior with NAPA leather seat inserts, sueded microfiber-wrapped upper-trim package, and custom leather-wrapped panel, doors, and console.
Lightweight carbon fiber is used everywhere from the aerodynamic front splitter, side rockers and rear fascia that includes integrated diffusers. The rear vent intakes were replaced with carbon fiber versions as was the rear wicker-bill spoiler.

Last week we had the exclusive opportunity to drive both of these great Corvettes. The 1965 Corvette restomod was very fun to drive. The soundtrack from the side-exhaust is simply fantastic. The drivability of the car is very easy – you can put the key in, turn on, and go! The Tremec five-speed makes highway driving a breeze while the modern coil-over suspension gives the car the feeling like its gliding over the road.
And for the Grand Sport, we’ve already proclaimed publically that this is the Corvette for us. The top-level 3LT trim package makes this a luxurious “gentleman’s” sportscar with its 8-speed automatic transmission and all the cool technology like the Performance Data Recorder. This modern C7 Corvette shows off very nicely in its Arctic White exterior with custom accents, and it offers a great contrast with all the carbon fiber on the car.
