With the production of the 2024 model year Corvette Stingray underway at General Motor’s Bowling Green Assembly, the National Corvette Museum delivered Stingray Convertible VIN #001 on Friday, September 29 to Jeff and Missy Garner. Delivered with the R8C option code and full VIP National Corvette Museum delivery experience, the Garner’s factory-fresh Artic White Stingray Convertible received a thundering boom of applause as it excited the Museum’s Corvette Boulevard, marking not only the historic VIN but also the start of 2024 model year deliveries at the Museum.

The story and car are even more special for the Garners, who previously owned a 2019 Watkins Glen Grey Corvette Grand Sport which was damaged by a storm in their nearby home of Smiths Grove, Kentucky. The Corvette was insured by NCM Insurance, the leading provider of client-focused collector car insurance, catering to the needs of automotive enthusiasts and collectors across the country. With NCM insurance at their side, the expedited claim process and customer service made the timing to take delivery of VIN #001 easier and more efficient.

“The new Corvette is an amazing car, and I’m most excited to get out and enjoy a drive,” explained owner Jeff Garner. “Our 2019 was a special car as that was a gift from my wife Missy, but to have a VIN #001 car, and take delivery at the Museum, makes this my dream Corvette.”

While the Garner’s VIN #001 is a unique car, the R8C delivery is an adventure like no other and a memorable addition to your new Corvette purchase. Thousands of enthusiasts take delivery of their new Corvette at the National Corvette Museum each year. Available through any Chevrolet Dealer, when specified during ordering, R8C customers are welcomed with signs and a guided VIP tour of the Museum where their car is displayed on Corvette Boulevard, followed by an orientation and presentation of their new vehicle. Customers also receive a one-year individual membership to the National Corvette Museum, a unique gold decal on the inside of the driver’s door jamb, and a commemorative wall plaque with the customer’s name, date of delivery, and VIN.
