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!


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

This is a real-deal, numbers-matching, first-year C4 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1. And when a survivor-grade, 375 hp coupe looks this distinctive, well then, you know this deal might not be around long enough for you to finish reading the details. The Corvette has always been Americas version of the European sports car, but the ZR-1 truly merged this attitude. It went to finishing school with the racing masters at Lotus in England, and you could instantly tell this was a special car. Back in 1990, the convex rear end and square-ish quad taillights were exclusive to the King of the Hill. Because this was the first year for the ultimate Corvette (it cost nearly double of the standard car) its collectability desire has been firmly established. Thats why this one has been treated with respect all its life. It has averaged 1,400 miles annually, and the distinct Polo Green still retains a bright gloss and shine. In fact, while all ZR-1s are rare, there were only 105 examples in this color during the inaugural year. In fact, the only non-standard piece we can identify is the set of polished later-C4 ZR-1 wheels. But we can understand how an aggressive machine like this deserves the upgraded alloys. The tan leather interior is the perfect complementing color to the deep green. You get to share this with the world just by taking out the targa roof (it has both the glass and color-matched tops.) But you can tell from its stellar condition that it didnt spend too much time out to showcase this attractive total package. The ZR-1 is meant to be a true drivers car, thats why the leather sports seats power adjust to your perfect position; the gauges are the perfect mix of analog and digital; and the shifter perfectly falls into your right hand. More than just the ultimate sports car, this is also a terrific luxury coddler. Thats because this classic comes loaded with feature like power windows, power locks, alarm system, cruise control, built-in radar detector, and provisions for air conditioning. Plus, the stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit with aux input for your iPod, so you can have modern music in this modern classic. A modern classic also means modern safety features like a driver airbag and anti-lock brakes. The LT5 engine still knows how to draw a crowd today. So when you lift whole front end to show off that unique and tidy setup, youll love being able to tell people its the numbers-matching motor. With the multi-valve setup developed by Lotus, and built by the sturdy masters at Mercury Marine, this was a unique motor the likes of which we might never see again. This 5.7-liter 32-valve V8 was rated at 375 hp, and it loves to pull hard through all six speeds. A supercar-level motor like this deserves the upgraded FX3 adjustable suspension that was part of the ZR-1 package. Plus, the powerful four-wheel disc brakes can halt the cars 175 mph capabilities. And the new Mickey Thompson Street Comp ZR tires are a great investment in properly capping off this handling package. This is a collector vehicle that has even just completed a recent comprehensive service. Plus, the original warranty card and owners manual come with the sale. So this is true rarity and Corvette royalty ready right now for you to enjoy. Call now!
