On Thursday, November 15th at approximately 3:10 pm, the final C7 Corvettes were completed at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green. Chevrolet celebrated the moment by tweeting out a photo of the last C7 Corvette produced – a Black 2019 Corvette Z06 – that was sold at auction for charity earlier in the summer.
Automobile collector Dan Snyder placed the winning $2.7 million bid for the Black 2019 Z06 Coupe at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction in Connecticut on June 28. Proceeds from the sale went to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Snyder is the CEO of digital media company inLighten and founder of Dan Snyder Motorsports, and his collection spans nearly 100 vehicles which also includes the very last Viper produced.
To commemorate the moment, Chevrolet tweeted this pic of the final C7 Corvette as it was completed on the assembly line in Bowling Green, KY:
Some endings are bittersweet. The last #Corvette C7 – the end of an era – rolled off the line today. It was previously auctioned for $2.7 million with proceeds going to building smart homes for veterans. pic.twitter.com/3NU7gWWbc6— Chevrolet (@chevrolet) November 15, 2019
The second to last Corvette has also found a special home according to the National Corvette Museum. That car, a 2019 Stingray Coupe in Arctic White will have a permanent home at the NCM Collection thanks to the generous donation by NCM Lifetime member Ivan Schrodt. Schrodt, who previously donated five Corvettes from his collection to the National Corvette Museum, purchased the car and will take delivery on the November 20th at the NCM. Ivan will then hand over the keys to the White Stingray Coupe in a ceremony on Corvette Boulevard where it will take its place among the other historic Corvettes in the National Corvette Museum’s collection.
