I just got my letter from Betty J Hardison, Library & Archives Coordinator at the National Corvette Museum. I am pleased to announce that my 2017 Z06 is "1 of 1". Yup, I've got the only one like mine in the whole wide world. I am quite insufferably pleased with myself.:surprise:

I would think if you have a car with 2 or 3 low production options, the chances of your car being 1 of 1 go up pretty quickly.
For example if you have three options that 250 cars or less received, option #1 makes you one of only 250. Even if 50% of the cars had options #2 and #3 that already puts you at 1 of only 63.

So was there any one thing that made it a one of one or was it a combination of of things? Congrats.
I think it was a combination. First off, the color. Of over 38,700 corvettes produced in 2017, only about 981 were Sterling Blue Metallic. Then only about 20% of the total production were manual transmissions. I didn't know how many of the 981 sterling blue corvettes were manual transmissions but if only 20% of the 981 were manuals now we are down to about 195 sterling blue manual transmissions. Then how many of the 195 or so were Z06's. I didn't know so I thought I'd find out. My other options were 3LZ premium equipment group, Z07 package, carbon fiber visible package, ZO6 chrome aluminum wheels, two toned seats and sueded microfiber seat inserts, sueded microfiber wrapped steering wheel and battery protection package with an MSRP of $104,565. Turns out mine is the only one like that.
If you search the forum with the words "Sterling Blue Metallic" back in April of 2017 I posted a couple of pictures at the dealership when I took delivery. One final trivia: My car was born on February 14, 2017. A Valentine's Day special 1 of 1.

Congrats on having a 1 of 1 Z!! That is awesome and should be a great selling point if you ever decide to get rid of her!

I can’t remember. Seriously, it has been in the garage on battery maintainer since November. It snowed here again last night-another couple of inches. I’m wanting to get it back on the road. I put about 5,200 miles on it before I had to put it away for the winter which seems to never end. The C7 is better than the C6 which was better than the C5. It really is a wonderful car. I’m glad I pulled the pin and did the deal even if I had to bleed the IRA to purchase a non income producing depreciating asset. However, I am also now a non income producing depreciating asset so I think it is a wonderful match. If you are at all thinking about it, just do it.
