Buyers can order a new Corvette at any dealership, selecting GM option code R8C which denotes the car is to be delivered to the National Corvette Museum. New Corvettes arrive by truck from the GM Plant across the street and are prepped and detailed for their new owner. Once a car has been inspected, it is placed on Corvette Boulevard within the Corvette Nursery awaiting the arrival of its new “parents.” Each “crib” is broadcast live on our web cams so that proud family members and friends may watch the delivery of the new “baby”!
