The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

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

West Coast Classics are proud to present a great daily driving example of this mildly customized 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible with its seemingly original matching #s Big Block 427cid/390HP V8 LM code engine with an upgraded MSD ignition system, Edelbrock intake, electric cooling fans, in dash computer driven Holley Sniper EFI fuel injection, Magnaflow mufflers, matched to its original 4 speed Muncie manual transmission & its original Heavy Duty Posi-traction Big Block rear end and loaded with original factory options including air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, tilt/telescopic steering & Rally wheels with BF Goodrich radial TA tires! The car boasts its seemingly original matching #s 427/390HP LM code engine with date coded correct 3935439 casting # with VIN # stamped on the engine pad; 4 speed manual transmission with Muncie date coded correct 3925660 casing casting #. Positraction BB rear end for 4 spd 427 with HD sway bars & tapped differential yokes with bolt on caps.Factory options include:L36 427ci, 390hp engine $221.204 spd Muncie Manual Transmission $184.80Air Conditioning $428.70Positraction Axle $46.35Power Steering $105.35Power Brakes $46.35Tilt/Telescopic Steering Column $84.30Hidden Headlights, roll up and work perfect.Very straight body and door to birdcage fitment.One repaint from original Le Mans Blue to Dark Brown colorInterior is standard Black color from original Bright Blue .All mechanics are excellent.In 1966, the 427 cubic inch was introduced in the Corvette and all 427 engine cars received special hoods. The high performance solid lifter 427 was initially listed at 450HP but for reasons unclear the rating, not the actual output, was reduced to 425HP shortly after introduction. It is also of note that some 390HP engines were rated at 400HP. Backup lights became standard and were incorporated into the existing rear inboard taillight housings.For 1968, both the Corvette body and interior were completely redesigned. As before, the car was available in either coupe or convertible models, but the coupe was fitted with a near-vertical removable rear window and removable roof T-Top roof panels. Included with coupes were hold down straps and a pair of vinyl bags to store the roof panels and the headlamps moved into position via a vacuum operated system rather than electrically as on the previous generation, and new hide-away windshield wipers utilized a vacuum door. The door handles were flush with the top of the doors with a separate release button. Front fenders had functional engine cooling vents. It would prove to be the long lived successor to the second generation (1963-67) years and was often referred to by enthusiasts as the Shark with no initial model designation at first, but which later became known as the Stingray from 1969 onwards. The somewhat freer breathing early engines of 1968-70 are the most collectible and desirable today with the Big Blocks obviously proving eminently desirable.This particular example has no signs of any accidents and is the beneficiary of a very presentable repaint in Dark Brown Metallic and looks extremely striking with a later 1970s Black Corvette seats interior and with the cars original seats, although in good condition but needing reupholstering, also to be included in the sale. The car must be driven to be truly appreciated - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that with the modern upgrade of computer driven fuel injection etc will give any modern day sports car a run for its money! The 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always remains cool!This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and never abused example of the second year of the third generation Corvette, a mildly customized 1969 Chevrolet Corvette 427/390HP Big Block Convertible with PS, PB, Positract BB rear end & 4 speed Muncie manual transmission!
