We are extremely proud and pleased to continue the opportunity of providing customers the unique option of the NCM Delivery Program. Approximately fifteen enthusiasts take delivery of their new Corvette each week … Join Team NCM members as we conduct an adventure second to none!
How It All Starts: NCM Delivery is referred to as OPTION "R8C" and is available through any Chevrolet Dealer at a minimal cost of $490. 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.
The Communications: After a TARGET PRODUCTION WEEK has been established, the National Corvette Museum will contact the selling dealer and/or the customer and offer a reasonable timeframe in which the customer can choose a date for delivery. This contact will normally occur approximately one week prior to the TARGET PRODUCTION WEEK allowing ample time for the customer to make travel arrangements. The Museum will confirm the date, agreed upon by customer, in writing 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
The Delivery: The customer arrives at the NCM and is welcomed with signs commemorating the event. They are taken to the Corvette Assembly Plant (located across the street from the NCM) for their own NCM Delivery Team guided VIP tour (when available)..
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.
The customer is presented with an individual one year NCM membership.
Post Delivery: A laser engraved wooden plaque (with the customer's name, date of delivery and VIN) is ordered for the participant the day of delivery. The plaque will then be shipped directly to the customer.
Gary Cockriel manages this one of a kind program for the NCM. He will be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns using the special NCM Delivery Hotline of 1-800-205-4248 ext 124.
