CORVETTE HISTORY / ZR-2: In 1971 Chevrolet Corvette introduced to the racing world a new street legal racing machine. This racer dubbed the ZR-2. Production was limited to 1971. There were 12 cars built in 1971. ZR-2’s were specially equipped with all the heavy duty racing equipment that had been developed in the L-88 corvettes of 1967-68-69. The ZR-2 package could not be ordered with any creative comforts, in other words, air conditioning, power steering, radio, special trim item like PO1 wheel covers. The ZR-2 cars, as best we can determine, are the “RAREST BIG BLOCK LS6 CORVETTES EVER PRODUCED”. Introduced during the 1971 model year, the first ZR-2 was given no pre-production hype, no road tests in exotic locations, no “leaked” photographs, and no engineering details. “Nothing” The car was on its own and only because Chevrolet was not involved in racing. But the corporate back door was wide open, especially if the GM execs were not looking! Out of that back door came the ZR-2. Based on the L-88 chassis, the big-block-powered racer was something of an enigma. How could you sell such a car if no one knew about it? Well, with racers being what they were (and are), the information slowly leaked out and 12 fortunate owners tested the very first ZR-2’s (Zora’s Racer), that’s right, they were created, named and championed after the innovative “Zora Duntov”, corvettes leading engineer.
