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

Pro Street fans, take note: this is how you build a vintage resto-mod that stands up to the test of time. There are so many hacked-up mid-year Corvettes out there with misguided attempts at modernization that this track-ready 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Pro Street roadster stands out simply by virtue of its insane curb appeal and attention to detail. Of course, the thundering 496 cubic inch big block with its protruding blower doesnt hurt, and its got the performance hardware to put all that extra horsepower to use without diminishing the fantastic original C2 look. A mid-year Corvette roadster is nothing overly unique or incredibly special, right? Sure, they have that timeless Stingray look that we all love, but theyve almost become so ubiquitous at car shows and on TV that they almost go unnoticed. And Im quite sure that unfortunate development was on the drawing boards when this beauty was being restored, because the builders did just about everything they could to ensure this Pro Street stands out from the crowd. They started with an Art Morrison 2x4 square tube custom chassis with steel floors and wheel tubs, and a full 10 point roll cage NHRA certified to 8.5 all powder coated in black. And painting it bright Torch Red certainly helps, giving it an elegantly vivid, attention-grabbing look that respects the Corvettes storied pedigree, while still highlighting all the cars exciting upgrades. The cowl hood is a custom big block Stinger piece that allows that huge motor and blower to stick out and breathe easy, theres a custom decklid out back that was fabricated to cover the oversized fuel cell and dual battery set-up, and the HUGE narrowed, lengthened, and tubbed rear end allows for those GIANT Mickey Thompson rubbers and Weld Racing rims to set the pouncing rake that make this Vette look like its going 100MPH while standing still. Bodywork was nicely done a few years back (theres only 5,212 miles on the build) and looks very good still today with only a few signs of use, with great shut lines and a modern urethane shine on that slick red finish. If wed have to guess, this was likely a very high-dollar paint job when it was applied, because it still looks so darn good today. The custom egg crate grille and rear chrome bumpers give the Corvette a classic sports car look and with the factory trim around the top and windows still in place, the brightwork sparkles against the high-impact bodywork. Theres absolutely nothing on the exterior that wasnt tweaked, upgraded, or polished to a high shine during the restoration, and its all holding up very well. And yes, thats an Art Morrison wheelie bar set-up out back, so this Lil Red Corvette is ready to stand-up and salute the crowd right off the line. The custom interior does a great job matching the exteriors performance flash, with choice upgrades throughout the cabin. The black-and-red leather upholstery is a great choice with the bright red bodywork, suggesting someone with excellent taste was picking the colors. All the soft parts are in excellent shape, including the Monaco buckets lined with bright red piping and equipped with Simpson 5-point harness seatbelts, plush black carpets, custom door panels, and the original dash pad, so it all looks uniform and everything matches nicely. A full array of AutoMeter gauges are straight ahead of the driver, and along with the custom center console and roll cage, it feels like the cockpit of a fighter jet inside. And quite frankly, once you rev up the motor and watch the RPMs rise on the tach, it sounds like one, too. This C2 is also equipped with a sporty LeCarra steering wheel atop a tilt column, a Cheetah shifter in the custom center console that manages the built automatic transmission below, along with a heavy-duty roll cage inside that stiffens the body and makes this Corvette racetrack ready. If youre trying to figure out what all the ruckus is about, youll quickly get the picture when you open the rear-lift hood and find a thundering 496 V8 big block that grunts out HUGE horsepower thanks to the giant Big Als Toybox supercharger kit perched up top. Finished in more polished aluminum bits than youll find at a Goodguys show, its a street-legal piece that was built to dominate at the track. Theres a pair of Holley 4-barrel carbs on top, Wisco 8.5:1 pistons inside, long-tube headers, and an HEI ignition in addition to all the stout goodies inside. All that horsepower is handled with ease thanks to an Art Carr performance built 4L80E 4-speed overdrive automatic transmission with a 3500 stall, manual valve body, and a Hurst line-lock set-up on the Cheetah shifter. The reinforced chassis and custom suspension carries a power rack-and-pinion steering setup, coilovers, and custom tubular A-arms up front, along with coilovers out back along with a back-halved tub and 4-link set-up that carries a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear end with Detroit locker 4.10 gears and Dutchman 38-spline axles inside, so nobody can accuse this of being a race-only piece. Wilwood power disc brakes with 12-inch rotors live at all four corners and the stainless Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds simply spectacular. Rolling stock consists of Weld Racing wheels with a classic big-and-little set-up that features 31x18x15 Mickey Thompson rears tires out back that set the aggressive stance. Brutally fast and supremely agile, this is the Corvette GM would have built with unlimited funds. With a huge big block motor, build transmission, and high-quality workmanship throughout, this is a car you can drive and show with pride. Call today!
