The Communications: After a TARGET
PRODUCTION WEEK has been established, the National Corvette Museum
will contact the selling dealer and/or the customer and offer a
reasonable time frame in which the customer can choose a date for
delivery. This contact will normally occur approximately two weeks
prior to the TARGET PRODUCTION WEEK allowing ample time for the
customer to make travel arrangements. The Museum will confirm the
date, agreed upon by customer, in writing and will handle all further
communications. If at any time the selling dealer and/or customer
should have any questions regarding the delivery, they may contact
the Museum at 1-800-205-4248.

Prior to picking up his vehicle the retired General toured the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green, Ky., and talked to employees. This is the 10th Corvette General Cody has owned.
