Chevrolet knocked it out of the ballpark with the reveal of the mid-engine Corvette, receiving strong praise from the automotive press who bestowed a number of awards on the car including the Motor Trend Car of the Year and the North American Car of the Year. Corvette buyers snapped up every single allocation for 2020 and then some as you know the story of how the COVID-19 shutdowns created even more demand as some buyers found their orders pushed back to 2021.
The gurus at the Corvette Dream Giveaway know how to option a Corvette and they don’t cheap out when doing it. This 2020 Corvette is VIN #279 is offered in 3LT trim with the Z51 Performance Package, Magnetic Ride Control, Visible Carbon Fiber Dual Roof Package, Black Trident Wheels, and the rare 5VM Aero Package and Carbon Flash High Wing.
Behind the driver sits the award-winning LT2 V8 engine that is topped with the optional engine appearance package. A dual-clutch 8-speed automatic transmission provides lightning-quick shifts as the 495-hp sportscar is the quickest base model ever with a performance rating of 2.9 seconds 0-60 mph and a quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds at 121 mph!
For those days when you want that classic loud exhaust note while the wind whips your hair, the 1962 restomod is the perfect boulevard cruiser. Under the hood is a Chevy LS3 V8 topped with a Holley Sniper EFI in polished stainless steel. The engine is coupled to an electronic four-speed transmission with power transferred through the Art Morrison chassis with a coil-over suspension to a 9-inch Ford rear-end with the exhaust exiting from a Magnaflow dual exhaust, all of which is meticulously detailed.
When you sit behind the wheel, you will see that no expense was spared during this restomod build. A gorgeous dipped Italian red leather wraps its occupants with its warm and comfortable embrace. White-faced gauges offer a modern take on the classic dash layout and we love the use of stainless steel throughout the cabin while the period-correct knobs provide a link to the car’s stock appearance. The retro-styled gear shifter looks right at home in the car as does the modern style D-shaped steering wheel that has the added benefit of helping the driver to easily enter and exit the vehicle.
The curb appeal of this custom 1962 Corvette roadster really sets it apart from other restomods. We particularly like the use of the dual modern-day LED headlights combined with a classic C1 grille with chrome teeth. Another is the chrome American Racing wheels that pay homage to Corvette wheels of the past with a design featuring elements of the rally wheel and hubcap spinners. Nothing says America like the Corvette and so the builder included custom C6 logos with American Flags which adorn the front of the car.
Sponsored by our friends at Corvette Central, the 2020 Corvette Dream Giveaway is a tax-deductible fundraiser with proceeds going to a number of well-known charities across the USA with the main beneficiary being the New Beginning Children’s Homes, a 501(c)(3) organization which provides family-focused living accommodations for abused, neglected or orphaned children.

Over the last four years, we have met the winners of the Corvette Dream Giveaway at the annual awards ceremony. The cars are real, the check for $45,000 is real and the smiles from the winners as they take both sets of keys are real. We would love to see you in Clearwater, Florida in 2021 as you take home these two great Corvettes along with a check for $45,000 to pay the taxes.
