Now in its eighth generation, the Chevrolet Corvette has been in production for nearly seven decades, first rolling off the line in 1953. Over the years, an incredible 1.75 million units of the iconic sports car have been produced, and now, the 1.75 millionth Corvette has been raffled off by the National Corvette Museum.
Raffled as part of the National Corvette Museum’s ongoing fund-raising efforts, the drawing for the 1.75 millionth Chevrolet Corvette was held September 4th, 2020, with Don Creekmore from Wichita, Kansas, taking home the prize. The drawing and winner announcement was streamed live on social media.
We’re raffling off the 1.75 Millionth Corvette! This Corvette is an Arctic White Corvette Coupe and the raffle was limited to 1,500 tickets at $200 each! Good luck!

The vehicle in question is a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Coupe finished in Arctic White paint with an Adrenaline Red interior. The 1.75 millionth Corvette is equipped with the popular Z51 Performance Package, the range-topping 3LT trim level, front lift adjustable ride height with memory feature, 5-trident spoke machined-face sterling silver aluminum wheels, and the engine appearance package.
The 1.75 millionth Corvette’s color scheme is a nod to the other production model milestones from the nameplate’s history, including the one millionth Corvette from the 1992 model year, and the 1.5 millionth Corvette from the 2009 model year, both of which came with a white exterior and red interior. The color scheme is also a nod to the very-first Chevrolet Corvette ever produced, which came with a Polo White exterior and red interior.
Future raffles held by the National Corvette Museum include a BYO (“build your own”) 2021 Coupe model, with drawing slated for September 24th and tickets priced at $250, and a 2021 Coupe model finished in Silver Flare, with drawing slated for October 15th and tickets priced at $100.
The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, right down the road from the GM Bowling Green production facility, the exclusive producer of the Chevrolet Corvette.
