We are thrilled to offer the Museum Delivery program to new Corvette Owners. It is an adventure like no other and a memorable addition to your new Corvette purchase. Hundreds of enthusiasts take delivery of their new Corvette at the Museum each year. Let our team be part of your new Corvette purchase!

How It All Starts: National Corvette Museum Delivery, OPTION CODE R8C, is available through any Chevrolet Dealer and provides new Corvette owners an incredible delivery experience at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. A $1,495 option, R8C must be specified at the time the order is finalized, and a special Ship Code of “184590” must also be used to identify your Corvette for Museum Delivery.

The Communications: The National Corvette Museum will contact the customer and offer a reasonable time frame in which the customer can choose a date for delivery. The first available date for delivery is approximately two (2) weeks from the offline date of the car. Once the car is built and its release from GM is confirmed a representative from the NCM Delivery Department will contact the customer to schedule their delivery date. The Museum will confirm the date, agreed upon by the customer, through email 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.

The Paperwork: Customers must arrive at the NCM with the following items before a delivery can take place:

  • A License Plate or Temporary Tag
  • Proof of Ownership (Bill of sale, etc.)
  • Proof of Insurance
  • Valid Operator’s License
  • Dealer Acknowledgement Form (download, print, fill out and return to the Museum via fax, email or mail)

The Delivery: The customer arrives at the NCM with up to three additional guests of age 13 and up, total (4) and is welcomed with signs commemorating the event. A personal, special VIP guided tour of the NCM is conducted where they will see their Corvette on display. Next, a member of the NCM Delivery Team provides a quality orientation followed by a thorough delivery presentation of their new vehicle. A unique gold decal is placed on the inside of the drivers’ door jamb to signify the importance of this memorable occasion. Customers also receive a personalized interior dash plaque, personalized wall plaque and an individual photograph in front of the Museum—weather permitting. Please note, we are currently experiencing a delay in uploading and sharing Museum delivery photos to Facebook. Updates will be made shortly, and thank you for your patience. Additionally, customers have the opportunity to purchase exclusive merchandise showcasing the “R8C Museum Delivery” logo, bricks in a special commemorative section, and build sheets/window stickers if available, during the program presentation. Deliveries can also be viewed world-wide via our live webcams.

Plant Tours: Museum Delivery customers may also have the opportunity to visit the Bowling Green Assembly Plant where their car was built. However, due to the plant’s production schedule, there could be select dates that are not available.

The National Corvette Museum proudly uses Adam’s Polishes products on all R8C Museum Delivery Corvettes.  Adam’s Polishes is the official car care product of PDI (pre-delivery inspection).  The full line of Adam’s Polishes products is available for purchase from the Corvette Store in-person or online.

The customer is presented with an individual one year NCM membership. Memberships which come with our R8C Museum Delivery program are upgradeable.

R8C customers have the opportunity to get on track in OUR Corvettes at the NCM Motorsports Park by purchasing touring laps at a discounted rate.  Laps are not available during private events, or while the track is in use by an event. Track availability is also dependent on weather. You can contact MSP 270-777-4509to inquire about lap availability on delivery day.
