How to Order

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 each year. National Corvette Museum Delivery is referred to as OPTION "R8C" and is available through Ross Downing Chevrolet when you order your new C7 Corvette through us. It 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.

When ordering, please mention that you would like the Museum Delivery option. You can also specify this in the Delivery Method section of our online Order a Corvette page.

Production Week
After a target production week has been established, the National Corvette Museum will contact us here at Ross Downing Chevrolet and/or you, the customer, and offer a reasonable time frame in which you can choose a date for delivery. This contact will normally occur approximately two weeks prior to the target production week allowing ample time for you to make travel arrangements. The Museum will confirm the date, agreed upon by you, in writing and will handle all further communications.

Program Cost

The Museum Delivery option is available through Ross Downing Chevrolet at a cost of $990.
The program cost includes a tour of the Bowling Green assembly plant where you'll get to see where each 7th-generation Chevy Corvette is built and how the whole process works.
