Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvettes to his customers who come from all across the country to work with the nation’s top individual Corvette seller.
After a long-deserved vacation (I’m talking about me!), we are back to bring you the latest installment of our delivery dispatch featuring new Corvettes delivered by the nation’s top Corvette seller, Mike Furman. We love seeing the happy faces of new owners as they have their Corvettes delivered and we also enjoy checking out the different build specs on each and every one. Mike can deliver new Corvettes locally, at the NCM, or across the country via courtesy deliveries and direct-to-driveway shipping and he has it down pat, so don’t let a bit of distance keep you from ordering your dream ride. Mike also shares a nice selection of both personal throwbacks as well as these vintage pics from back in the day. Like what you see? Let us know in the comments below!

~Tomorrow will be the start of my 44th year selling Corvettes. One of the best parts is that I’m a Corvette enthusiast (have owned 22 Corvettes myself) first and foremost so handing keys over to the new Corvette owner is pure FUN each and every time.

Purchasing a Corvette over the last 2 years has been tricky, but Mike made it the best experience it could be. I can’t imagine dealing with anyone else. Also, I have a few custom items that I wanted done for delivery. Dina and here team in the Corvette Service Dept. stepped up and nailed each one of them. Her dedication to the customer and making sure I knew how the process worked made sure I was informed and no surprises were handed to me. Such a great team at Criswell. A+ players across the board.”

“Here are the photos of the delivery yesterday of our 14th Corvette.
You are sooo correct….. its worth the wait. TC Chevrolet in Ashland OR did a great job.
Now we will be installing XPEL, MRR Wheels, Splitter and Ground effects painted body color.
Will send a photo when all are completed, probably in Sept.
We both thank you for a job well done. Also you are delivering a Blue one to Jon Dunn who is also in the Rogue Valley Corvette Club here in Oregon.
We plan to take some photos of all the C8s you delivered for our club web page this fall. John Warren White, Jon Dunn Blue and my Red one for a Red, White, and Blue patriotic shoot.
Lastly are you planning one of your Ron Fellows events for next Spring?
If so I think Cheri and I would want to come along with the Dunns.
