    Default Amid Bankruptcy Planning - 1.5 Millionth Corvette Built

    Apparently while GM was preparing for bankruptcy, the 1,500,000th Corvette rolled off the assembly line in Bowling Green on Thursday, May 28th. At this time, the only details I have is that it is a white convertible - and received no fanfare what-so-ever.

    With any luck, we'll see GM rise up from the ashes to build another 1.5 million Corvettes in the future. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Got to view the 92 while on display at the museum many moons ago. Maybe it is still there ?

    It is still there. It was donated to the museum before the museum was finished in '94. Let's hope for another 1.5 million.

    I was lucky enough to see this car being built during my buyers tour a week ago. It was somewhat of a 'secret' when I saw it.

    Default Chevrolet builds 1,500,000th Corvette

    FOR RELEASE: 2009-06-10

    Chevrolet builds 1,500,000th Corvette


    Pricing also announced for the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport


    DETROIT - At the June meeting of the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association, Karen Rafferty, Chevrolet Product Marketing Director, today announced the recent production of the 1,500,000th Corvette at GM Bowling Green Assembly.

    "The 1.5 millionth Corvette is a great example of how Chevy is America's Brand," Rafferty said. "For nearly 60 years we have built America's Sports Car and this milestone is a solid proof point."

    The 1.5 millionth Corvette, built on May 28, is a white convertible 3LT with red interior and black top (similar to the first, 500,000th and 1 millionth Corvettes built in 1953, 1977 and 1992 respectively). The first Corvette rolled off the assembly line on June 30, 1953.

    Rafferty also announced pricing of the all-new 2010 Corvette Grand Sport. Pricing for the Grand Sport coupe is $55,720 and GS convertible is $59,530. Both prices include a $950 destination freight charge.

    "The Corvette Grand Sport achieves a 0 - 60 time in less than four seconds, pulls 1.0g on the skid pad and still boasts an impressive 26 highway mpg," Rafferty said. "These numbers are unmatched by any of Corvette's competitors."

    I think they should have left the stripes off to stay in tune with the other three.

    Any C2/3/4/or early C5 would be fine

    Wow this is great. I am ready for the next 44 years and 500,000 Corvettes!
    Rice maybe good for us Asians but only the Corvette is for all of us.

    And remember SAVE THE WAVE!

    The King has returned!
