The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

1995 CORVETTE ZR-1

The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.

Classic Car Overview

1957 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster DID YOU KNOW: In 1957, anyone seeking to purchase a Corvette could actually purchase a genuine racing version. When placing the order, consumers had the option of selecting the EN build code which would allow them to build a true Corvette race car. Chevy warned that the EN version was not for the street and actually refused to include heaters on cars equipped with the racing package. However, some researchers say that the EN code is unverified. Maybe one day an EN fuelie Vette will grace our halls and we can have solid verification! With a mere 4,000 miles on it since a major engine rebuild, steering box rebuild, front suspension rebuild, and a new wiring harness, as well as period correct two tone paint, this car is now all buttoned up, and everything on this car actually works. For the serious enthusiast a must look at, for the classic Corvette collector, a grab it before its gone, for the hobbyist a head turner, literally something in this car for everyone who is remotely interested in a classic Corvette. Exterior Restored exterior and then painted in original Onyx Black, and Inca Silver coved glory, there are very few faults to make a note of. Chrome is near perfect, badging is all there, and even the wheels are the correct steel with the polished faux knockoff caps and wide white rubber, which are brand new. This body has benefitted tremendously from being totally stripped, painted then re-assembled, its that good! Interior A brand new Venetian red interior covered in pristine vinyl, is the perfect complement to the exterior two tone. In the door panels are seen the power window switches which work but the passengers window needs some assistance going up. A working Wonderbar radio converted to AM/FM is neatly mounted within the dash. Vinyl within the doors and seat inserts had been embossed with a square 3D pattern and is surrounded by clean smooth bolsters. Dual eyebrow dash stretches from door to door and has excellent all working gauges. Carpeting is above excellent, and has leather stitching seamed edging and also in bright red. The beautiful headliner also has the embossed square pattern on it, and is fabulous to look at, almost giving you vertigo. Drivetrain A correct 283ci V8 which working with the dual Carter 4-barrel carburetors attached will pump out 270hp. A correct T10 4-speed manual transmission is attached to the back of this original mill, and it sends power to the back via a 3.55 geared rear. As one would expect with a restoration of this caliber, the engine is looking just great in the totally restored engine bay. Undercarriage Solid welds, straight X-frame steel, clean wheel wells, all working mechanicals, I cannot say enough as to the meticulous attention to detail that has been put into the restoration of this car. 4-wheel drum brakes are on all four corners. New rear springs, and a new front suspension has been added according to this consigner. One note is a small section of the X Frame has been notched and can be clearly seen in our photographs. Drive-Ability This is one of those cars you really want to drive but feel like you need to wrap yourself in plastic prior to entering...it is that good. We got in with our shoes off, and kick started this beauty which fired immediately. A great sound emanated from the exhaust, and we gently popped the clutch, and began out test drive. It drove great, shifted smoothly, steering was with ease, and handling was nicely..well..handled! A nice experience. Quality, Quality, Quality with a capitol Q on this restoration, which is correct, utilizes all original parts, and pays attention to every detail. A wonderful color combination, and one of the most pristine interiors Ive seen here at Classic Auto Mall, and we have lots of Vettes . A beautiful C-1 nimble warship living up to its name.
