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

A 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in its cool two-tone silver anniversary colors, T-tops, A/C, four-speed, and a numbers-matching L82 heart. So yes, this already has everything you want in a 78, and thats before you even notice the affordable price. The fastback roofline was new for 78. It not only improved aerodynamics but increased cargo capacity, and in the process, these special editions launched a new era for the third-generation coupes. The two-tone silver on the 25th Anniversary Corvette is still one of the most handsome combinations to come out of the 1970s. It goes far beyond just coordinating two handsome colors. It adds delicate pinstriping in all the right places, including extra ones to highlight the C3s curvy styling along the power bulge in the hood and the Coke bottle fenders. It looks like a custom paintjob, which is why it has remained one of the most sophisticated themes ever applied by General Motors. And yes, we even suspect this to be factory original! This even has nice details, like the correct 25th anniversary badging and optional polished aluminum wheels. So its a highly-correct survivor-style presentation. The Oyster leather interior has a nice clean look against the silver exterior. This bright interior trim is repeated on the door panels, center console, carpets, and even the steering wheel is wrapped in the same white leather. You have nice features, like the factory AM/FM stereo with 8-track and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Plus, the T-tops love to put the wind in your hair, and the recently serviced R134a air conditioning makes sure its always cool. If this sounds like an awesome driver, then we know youll love the C3s full gauge package. And that shifter is just calling out for your right hand. The engine is the optional L82 350 cubic-inch V8. This higher compression motor was a must-have for the performance fans in 1978 because it offered 17% more horsepower than the standard Corvette V8. But this one goes even further with an upgrade to Hooker headers that means a much deeper sound out of the dual exhaust and an extra dose of power over the other L82 Anniversary Edition cars out there. In fact, just in town driving is fun as you develop a sold hit of power low in the rev range that gets your heart racing and the dual exhaust growling. Plus, while most came with automatic transmissions, this one gives you the most out of the V8 with the control of a four-speed manual. Add in power steering, the fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, and youll understand that this Corvette is for drivers. The way this looks tells that they wanted to preserve something special, and the way this one fires up and drives affirms its careful life. The sale even comes with title documentation, owners manual, and car cover. So you know this is a terrific classic offered for a gone-tomorrow price. Call today!!!
