The first Corvette ever produced was a Polo White convertible with a red interior, which left the production line on June 30th, 1953. When Chevrolet reached one million units produced for the iconic Corvette back in 1992, the automaker decided to give a nod to the first-ever Corvette and make the millionth car a white-over-red C4 Corvette similar to the original. It did the same thing when it built the 1.5 millionth Corvette back in 2009, producing a white-over-red C6 Corvette to mark the milestone.
The Corvette Museum’s 1.75 millionth Corvette also follows this theme. The car, which is a 3LT trim, will come finished in Arctic White and will feature an Adrenaline Red leather interior. The car in question is also very well equipped, coming with the range-topping 3LT trim and featuring the Z51 performance package, 5-spoke ‘Trident’ machine face wheels, the optional engine appearance package and the available front axle lift system. It also has Bright Red brake calipers and Carbon Flash painted mirror caps.
The National Corvette Museum says the Corvette will be raffled off on Friday, September 4 at 3 pm CT as part of the its 26th Anniversary Celebration event. Tickets will cost $200 each and only 1,500 tickets will be sold. Tickets “can be acquired via a secure, barcoded mail order form available online at raffle.corvettemuseum.org,” it also said, but we imagine they will also be available for purchase at the celebration event – so long as there are still any left to sell.
“The Museum has been raffling Corvettes for over 20 years, welcoming new enthusiasts to the family in the process,” NCM CEO Sean Preston said in a statement. “We are appreciative of those who support our raffle program through ticket purchases as it is one of the primary fundraisers for the Museum.”
