Chevy Dealers Must Train To Sell C8May 9, 2019
Dealers Must Buy Tools And Train To qualify To Sell The Corvette C8
Chevrolet wants to make sure the C8 buying experience is a great one, so they are going to make dealers jump through some hoops if they want to sell the C8 Corvette.
It has been some time since Chevrolet has had so much excitement around the introduction of a new car, and the only people more excited than the customers, are the Chevrolet dealers, eager for a piece of the action. But dealers looking to get the customers into their showroom’s for fun and profit will have to participate in one of two available programs.
The programs are called “Corvette Dealer” and “Signature Corvette Dealer.” A standard Corvette Dealer must invest $3,500 to send a sales representative to Spring Mountain Motorsports in Las Vegas for in-depth training, and $1,500 in specialty tools for the new car.
The Signature Corvette Dealer program requires the same items as the standard dealer and also have a Service Manager or Service Advisor be sent to Spring Mountain as well, and demands compliance with something GM calls the “Corvette Participation Agreement.” A Signature Corvette Dealer will get the added benefit of being showcased on Chevrolet’s website for prospective customers.
As an add on option to either program, Chevy is offering a C8 Mobile Tour. For $16,000 (for one day) or $25,000 (for two days), starting in December, GM will send a pair of new C8 Corvettes, and a factory-approved expert, to show the cars to prospective clients and assist in ordering new cars.

1967 Chevelle SS396
What Mike likes about this car:
“This breath taking 1967 Hardtop is one of collectors, and my, all-time favorites. This car is stunning in every respect. The color combo, options, fit and incredible paint luster will blow you away.
The frame off restoration is second to none. And with the docs, which are believed to be original, once this car is bought it will remain in captivity for a long time.
Don’t miss it, it will be sold.”
You are looking at an ultra-rare, documented and frame-off restored 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396/375hp L78 4-speed, finished in its original factory Tuxedo Black w/Red vinyl bucket seat interior!
Only 612 L78 packages were produced in 1967 making them a must have for any serious muscle car collector! Finding one of these jewels with documentation is extremely rare and is the key between investment quality and not!
Documented with the Dealer Sales Invoice, Dealer Order, PDI Sheet, Window Sticker, N.C.R.S. Shipping Data Report, and even a service receipt from back in ’67!
Trades maybe? Financing yes!!! Thrill rides no!!!
