Default Top 10 volume Corvette dealers?

Dealers used to get allocation for Corvettes based on how many Corvettes they sold the previous year. Then Z06 allocation was based on how many regular Corvettes were sold. I seem to remember GM changing that allocation rule to total number of any cars sold not just Corvettes? That was just before GM went bust. Is that still the case?

Anyone know who the top 10 volume Corvette dealers in the Country are? How many Corvettes do they sell a year?

Safe to say these are high volume dealers right?

Many on your list are no longer in business as Chevrolet Franchises - part of the GM Wind down...

Bill Stasek is the #1 Corvette dealer in Illinois and a top 10 dealer, Nationwide. They are also a Forum Sponsor. It should also be noted, they are a TOP Callaway Dealer w/ an excellent reputation is sales AND Service after the sale...

Here is their website - ask for Bob Foley, Bob Clegg, or Scott Wiscomb

Cauley is no longer a Chevy dealer. They are now Cauley Performance. They still have the Ferrari dealership next door and in the former Chevy store they sell all brands of performance cars. They have an '11 Trans Am( built from Camaro ) in their showroom also.

A few years ago, Kerbeck said they were #1 and sold 900 cars a year.

I think McMulkin in NH is chasing Kerbeck and may even be in the #2 slot with sights set on being #1.

Hi Rick,

It has been a while since our last Vette.

Good memory. We bought 2 from EVS. We bought a '07 just before you got to EVS and a '08 when you got there.

So who are the other top dealers today?

How long have you been at Ganley? Doing well I hope!

Has anyone ordered one lately? I would think, with low sales, the allocation system would be temporarily suspended. GM should build one for anybody with a deposit check.

These are #s i have heard

Kerbeck sold ~ 500-600+ units
MacMulkin ~300 units

Anything over 50-75 is huge for any one dealer

When I picked up my GS @ Stingray Chevrolet in Plant City Florida they said they were in the top 10 in Corvette sales, real laid back place, sales guys uniform was shorts and a Stingray polo pull over, they had around 80 vettes in stock. Located between Tampa and Orlando in the middle of strawberry country!

MacMulkin is hot on the Kerbeck heels for #1
Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg, Md would also be in the top 10.
Buds, Fitchner, and Boardwalk are others that come to mind that may be in the top. All are forum dealers.

Even though they are not a forum dealer I think Stingray Chevrolet in Florida is in the top 10.

I would think that info as to which dealerships have sold the most new Corvettes in lets say calender year 2011 would be available some place .. Centainly GM knows

As for Hendrick Corvette is concerned .. Here is what there website says:


"If you are looking for a new or pre-owned Chevrolet Corvette, you have come to the right place for all Corvette USA models! Rick Hendrick Corvette has the largest selection of USA Corvettes in the Atlanta area, and is currently the largest USA Corvette dealer".

The Kerbeck website also states that they are the "#1 World's Largest Corvette Dealer"

Who to believe?

Don't matter to me either ... I was just responding to the OPs question ... I guess it matters to him.


BTW ... Purchased my 2011 GS from MacMulkin too (in June 2011)
