All participants can enter by calling this toll free number: 866-946-2684 or by visiting http://www.winthevettes.com.
The legendary 1963 Split-Window Coupe was the first Corvette coupe ever produced and was the first car to be called a “Sting Ray.” This 300 hp highly sought after Corvette, which was produced for only one year, comes equipped with a 327 cubic inch power plant and was once considered to be one of the fastest cars on the road. This 1963 Split-Window Coupe comes finished in striking silver with a stunning red leather interior and was the recipient of the 1963 Car Life Award For Engineering Excellence. Some of the features included in this coupe are hidden headlamps, independent rear suspension and an iconic split rear window.
The heart stopping 2011 Hero Edition ZR1 has been custom designed to match the 63’. This 700 hp, high speed sports car, has been enhanced by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering to exceed speeds of over 200 mph and is easily one of the fastest production Corvettes of all time. Helping add to the uniqueness of this Corvette are its special emblems and carbon fiber components. Some of the other features included in the 2011 Hero Edition ZR1 are custom front bucket seats, dual exhaust pipes, side scoops and red rims.
This giveaway is sponsored by and benefits Kids Wish Network. One of Kids Wish Network’s fastest growing programs is the Hero Program. The Hero program works to improve the lives of boys and girls coping with traumatic life-changing events. The Corvette Dream Giveaway has helped fund the expansion of the Hero program which is now offered in pediatric facilities across the nation. Each month a child from each participating hospital is chosen and recognized with a special “Hero” gift package.
