Every new mid-engine Corvette is already a milestone itself in the history of Chevy’s legendary sports car.
Now someone will have the opportunity to win an even more historic Corvette when the National Corvette Museum raffles off the 1.75 millionth Corvette ever produced.
This noteworthy Corvette is expected to roll off the assembly line in Bowling Green in August, and officials will be announcing the winner of the raffle on Friday, Sept. 4 at 3 p.m. (CT) as part of the Museum’s 26th Anniversary Celebration.
Of course, the first 300 Corvettes in 1953 were Polo White over red interior. Likewise, the 1.75 millionth will be in the same scheme, Arctic White over Adrenaline Red.
While the NCM still houses the one-millionth Corvette (a 1992) and the 1.5 millionth (a 2009), the 1.75 millionth will only call the Museum home briefly before being raffled off.
By the way, the ’92 and the ’09 both fell into the infamous sinkhole at the Museum back in 2014, with the ’92 being restored by GM but the ’09 too far gone to be repaired. You can see both of them at the NCM.
“We are appreciative of Chevrolet for aligning the production of one of our Corvette raffle cars so that it would become this milestone in production,” says Dr. Sean Preston, President and CEO of the National Corvette Museum. “It’s exciting that in just 11 years Bowling Green Assembly has produced 250,000 Corvettes. No other sports car can claim that kind of production volume or enthusiast following.”
The 1.75 millionth Corvette is fully equipped, including the Z51 performance package, 3LT equipment group, 5-trident spoke machined-face sterling silver aluminum wheels, engine appearance package, front lift adjustable height with memory and more.
The winner will receive his or her new Corvette via the Corvette Museum Delivery program, also referred to as option code R8C when ordering a new Corvette, which provides a red carpet V.I.P. experience for the winner and up to three accompanying guests.
“While you do not have to be a raffle winner to pick-up your Corvette from the Museum, we always look forward to celebrating with those who won their car from us,” Preston says. “The Museum has been raffling Corvettes for over 20 years, welcoming new enthusiasts to the family in the process. We are appreciative of those who support our raffle program through ticket purchases as it is one of the primary fundraisers for the Museum.”
Tickets for the raffle are $200 each, with sales limited to just 1,500. You can buy them to help raise funds for the 501c3 nonprofit foundation via a secure, barcoded mail order form available online at raffle.corvettemuseum.org.
