1990 Corvette ZR191 Miles Since New!, Incredible, The Best!
This is an incredible opportunity to buy what is essentially a brand new 1990 Corvette ZR1 with 91 miles covered since new! And the factory had already put over 40 miles on it for testing! This is obviously a show piece for the finest collection. This hand built automobile was one of the fastest production cars ever made. This is the original American made Super Car. The original list price for it was $60,710, which is why we are pricing it at MSRP!!
This is a gorgeous color combination of Dark Red Metallic with Black Leather Adjustable Sport Bucket Seats. And literally, the car looks as new in every respect. Well, I guess with 91 miles it is new!
From a Road and Track article: “The ZR-1 looks like a Corvette. There’s that unmistakable shape but with a notable difference: The bodywork widens beginning at the leading edge of the doors and culminates in a tail that is 3 inches broader than the normal Vette’s—to accommodate the hefty P3I5/ 35ZR-17 Goodyear Eagle Gatorbacks made specifically for this car. The soft, polyurethane end cap is different too, convex rather than concave with square versus round tail lights and a small red
ZR-1 badge that graces the lower right corner.”
ZR1’s came loaded with performance options. This example had added the following features: air conditioning, Dual Removable Roof Panels, and the Bronze Removable Roof Panel.
The engine is the heart and soul of the ZR1. Road & Track added: “Unique to the ZR-1 (and for most of us, its raison d’etre), the LT5 engine is a lovely example of double-overhead-cam, four-valve-per- cylinder technology. Developed jointly with Lotus and built by Mercury Marine (the boat motor people), this 5.7-liter aluminum, 32-valve V8 has the same 4.40-inch bore center spacing (for standardization purposes) as the venerable Chevy small-block. To maintain this distance, the bore has been reduced from 4.00 to 3.90 inches, while the stroke has been increased from 3.48 to 3.66 inches.
Aluminum cylinder liners that are lighter than steel are Nikasil-coated, and the externally-ribbed block has a cast-aluminum oil sump and lower crankcase assembly whose integral four- and six-bolt cast-iron main bearing caps secure the forged steel crankshaft. Up top, the LT5’s four camshafts are driven by a roller chain (Gilmerbelts were considered, but discarded because they would have made the engine too wide to be bottom-loaded into the Corvette chassis on the Bowling Green assembly line) and actuate hydraulic lifters that eliminate valve lash adjustment. The four-valve combustion chambers feature centrally-located spark plugs (for reduced flame travel) and are designed to act in concert with dished aluminum pistons with an 11.0:1 compression ratio. To ensure that all of this very elaborate (and expensive)
machinery doesn’t self-destruct for lack of proper lubrication, the engine oiling system holds 12 quarts, 7 more than the pushrod V8.
This gorgeous ZR1 comes with lots of documentation, including a new sales brochure, promotional materials, laminated window sticker, and a laminated build sheet. Of course the owners manual and other items are also included. For more details, please call Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at email@example.com.
