Now that C8 Corvette production has officially begun, it is only a matter of time before customer cars start becoming the stars of their local cars and coffee. Along with that, you are bound to find yourself looking enviously at the first person you see wheeling this mid-engined iteration of America’s sports car. This might be because we already know that GM is cutting back on MY2020 C8 production numbers, but what if we told you that you could win a new C8 Corvette, along with a C1 on top of it?
This raffle has been offered up by the folks over at Dream Giveaway Garage and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, who routinely give away awesome cars in order to raise money for veteran’s and children’s charities. This time around, Dream Giveaway Garage has packaged these two little red Corvettes together, showing just how far the car has come since the first generation that started all the way back in 1953. The Torch Red C8 in question isn’t a cheap one either, featuring the 3LT Premium Equipment Package and the Z51 Performance Package, raising the would-be MSRP to more than $90,000.
As cool as the C8 Corvette is, it is the older car out of the bunch that really has our attention. This 1962 Corvette roadster has undergone a no-expense-spared restoration, finished in Salsa Red paint with a complimentary Flame Red leather interior. Take a close look and you’ll notice the ZR1-style hood with an engine-reveal insert, as well as the custom front grille fabricated from earlier 1957 and 1958 Corvettes.
This isn’t just a show car either, thanks to the 430 horsepower LS3 engine stuffed under the hood, mated to a 4L65-E automatic transmission. An Art Morrison chassis underpins the whole ordeal, complete with Wilwood brakes and upgraded wheels and tires.
If you were to win this pair of Corvettes, Dream Giveaway Garage will pay to fly you to Clearwater, Florida, to collect the keys, as well as hand you $45,000 to cover the taxes involved with the cars. For more information about how to enter, click here.
