BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — The National Corvette Museum plans to raffle off an arctic white coupe with a red interior at its 26th anniversary celebration next month.

It will be the 1.75 millionth Corvette produced and will be documented and certified by General Motors Co., Sean Preston, president and chief executive of the museum, told the Daily News. The vehicle will look exactly like the first Corvette built in 1953 at the GM plant in Bowling Green, he said.

The museum reopened in June after being closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
