The National Corvette Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit foundation located in Bowling Green, Kentucky – just up the street from the world’s only General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant. The Museum hosts a number of Corvette fundraising raffles each year as a means to generate revenue for the foundation.
Slated for raffle on Thursday, February 20, 2020 is a 2019 Blade Silver Corvette Grand Sport Convertible. But what’s special about the car is that it was the LAST seventh generation Grand Sport Convertible built. The car was built on August 30, 2019 – just before the start of a more than 40-day strike by GM Bowling Green Assembly. The final date of production of the C7 was November 14, 2019.
The car features a 6.2 liter V8 460 HP engine with 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. Other options include a power-folding black convertible top with remote control; magnetic selective ride control; multi-mode performance exhaust; Grand Sport black-painted aluminum wheels with red-painted calipers; 2LT equipment group with Adrenaline Red leather interior including head-up display, heated and ventilated seats, Bose 10-speaker audio system, universal home remote, and remote vehicle starter system; Carbon Flash painted ground effects package; performance data and video recorder with navigation; curb-view front cameras; Carbon Flash badge package; Carbon Flash hood stinger stripe; Carbon Flash painted outside mirrors; red seat belts; Chevrolet infotainment audio system; battery protection package; front license plate bracket.
The winner of the raffle will be afforded the opportunity to pickup the Corvette through the Museum Delivery program (option code ‘R8C’). The delivery program welcomes customers with signs and a VIP guided tour of the Museum where their car is displayed, followed by an orientation and presentation of their new vehicle.
Tickets for the raffle are $150 and is limited to 1,500 tickets – however the raffle will be held on February 20 regardless of number of tickets remaining unsold. Tickets can be purchased on-site at the Museum, located at I-65 Exit 28 in Bowling Green. Additionally, buyers can download a raffle ticket order form from raffle.corvettemuseum.org to purchase tickets via mail order.
