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
Even though the horsepower wars have escalated and even the base Corvettes are packing 500 horsepower these days, theres something special about this 1994 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1. Those three little figures on a small badge mean so much to Corvette fans, and no matter how much horsepower the latest LS-series engines make, theyll never howl like the mighty LT5. Yeah, Ill admit it, we love the ZR-1 (note the hyphen). They seem to have bottomed-out on the value curve and are seeing some quickly ascending appreciation now that theyre suitably vintage for collectors. The plain-Jane looks that made them hard to explain to the neighbors when they were new also make them the ultimate sleeper today, although in Torch Red (the most popular shade for a ZR-1 in 94), youre getting attention whether you like it or not. This one shows just 37,323 original miles on the clock and it shows everywhere you look. The chin is not scuffed, the rockers havent been blasted by the fat tires, and its extremely clean everywhere you look. Yes, there are some signs of age that are simply inevitable after driving it 37k miles, but we wouldnt change a thing. For a car that was treated as something special by its enthusiastic owners, this one has led a very sheltered life and it shows. It wears the ultra-clean final iteration C4 nose, simple fender gills, and, of course, the high-mounted CHMSL that was the only reliable way to identify a ZR-1 from a distance. The Light Beige leather interior is exactly right for the bright red Vette. Yeah, its subtle, but its a Corvette after all, and subtlety is a virtue in the ZR-1s case. The good news is that its in spectacular condition, with seats that have hardly been used and carpets that look pretty darned good. Master the peculiar C4 entry procedure and youll settle into some of the most comfortable buckets to ever come out of Bowling Green. The combination digital/analog instrument panel works as well for the LT5 as it does for the LT1, although youll note that the redline is a bit higher thanks to the deep-breathing 32-valve V8. Everything was standard and everything works in this low-mile hammer, including the infamous valet key that kills horsepower. The 6-speed manual is the only way to go in a fast little red Vette, and even with that power stick beckoning the driver to hammer down on it with reckless abandon, the owner managed to leave nary a trace of treating this Corvette with nothing but white-glove respect. Chevys LT5 was designed by Lotus and built by the aluminum experts at Mercury Marine, but theres no denying that it was a winner. Despite the apparent complexity, these are bulletproof engines that dont mind full-throttle blasts to redline, and thanks to the dual-stage intake and 4-valve heads, it never seems to run out of breath. Its also happy to lug around town without complaining. But when you crack that throttle and run it through the gears, the shriek of all that metal flying around is simply bone-chilling. The 6-speed ZF gearbox appreciates a firm hand, and the suspension does a fine job of channeling the power effectively. The undercarriage is spotless and unmodified, right down to the factory exhaust, so if youre looking for investment-grade, this is probably it. Clean 5-spoke wheels look fantastic and wear Goodyear Eagle F1 performance radials. If you dont get the ZR-1, we wont try to explain it to you. But if you know how cool these cars are, then you know this low-mileage example is an incredible opportunity. Call today!
