The year 2023 will mark the 70th anniversary of the Corvette, one of the most iconic cars of all time and the longest-running nameplate of any car you can still buy today. Throughout those 70 years, the Corvette has gone through eight model generations, each time setting a new bar for style, performance, and technology.
To celebrate, Chevrolet is launching the 2023 Corvette Stingray and Z06 models with a special 70th Anniversary Edition package featuring unique exterior colors, optional stripes, and exclusive wheels with commemorative center caps.
The Corvette 70th Anniversary Edition will also have a beautiful two-tone interior in ceramic leather with either GT2 or Competition Sport seats. They’ll have red stitching, red seat belts, and a steering wheel and seat inserts in sueded microfiber for extra comfort and style.
“Passion for Corvette runs deep at Chevrolet and this anniversary is extra special because of the excitement and sales success we’ve achieved with the eighth generation of America’s iconic sportscar,” said Steve Majoros, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “Even after 70 years, Corvette still makes hearts race and kids dream of the open road.”
Other cool features will include red brake calipers, a custom luggage set with red stitching and exclusive 70th Anniversary Edition logos on the exterior, interior, and custom luggage set. The car will be limited, so make sure to call Vann Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida, to reserve yours before they’re all snatched up!

When it comes to helping veterans, General Motors is serious. Earlier this year, Chevrolet sold two Corvettes at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Combined, the two Corvettes fetched $2.325 million that will be donated to veterans organizations. Here at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet, we are proud to see Chevrolet doing so much to support our veterans.
The first model was a Corvette Carbon 65 Edition signed by President George W. Bush. This model was bought by John Staluppi, owner for Atlantic Automotive Group. He bought this unique model for $1.4 million. This money will be donated to Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative, which assists post-9/11 veterans and their families transition back to civilian life.
Next up on the auction block was a Corvette ZR1. This first production model was purchased by Rick Hendrick, chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, for $925,000. The proceeds from this sale will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This organization supports wounded veterans.
“GM and Chevrolet are proud to honor and support the brave men and women of our armed forces,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. sales and service. “Thanks to the generosity of two of our dealers, John Staluppi and Rick Hendrick, we will be able to offer additional support to some of our most severely wounded veterans.”
We applaud Chevy’s presence at this event. If you’d like to test drive a Corvette for yourself, simply visit us at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet.
