Harry's Thoughts

THE ESSENTIALS

Here is a beautiful example of an adult owned, lightly driven and pampered Corvette ZO6. With only 13,000 original miles, 1 owner, and a clean CARFAX, this Corvette is in goregeous condition. That, combined with the Z06 package which brings a 7.0L V-8 and a 6-speed manual transmission, makes this car an absolute blast to drive and an outstanding value. We challenge you to find a better performance car for the money!

The C6 Corvette (6th generation) and new Z06 arrived as a 2006 model in the third quarter of 2005. It has a 7.0 L version of the small block engine codenamed LS7. At 427.6 cubic inches, the Z06 was the largest small block ever offered from General Motors. Because of the Corvette’s former use of 427 cubic-inch big blocks in the late-1960s and early 1970s, the LS7’s size was rounded down to 427 cubic inches. Official output was 505 bhp (377 kW) and has a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 198 mph (319 km/h). Another first for a Corvette, the Z06 featured a full aluminum chasis. The frame mirrored the C5/6 architecture but substituting aluminum hydroformed rails and aluminum extrustions and castings fore and aft. This dropped weight of the chassis from 419 to 287 pounds while improving its stiffness.

For 2008, the Corvette received a mild freshening. The 6-speed manual transmission has improved shift linkage while the interior was slightly updated and a new 3LT interior package. The wheels were also updated to a new five-spoke design.

This Machine Silver Metallic on black leather ZO6 is subtle, understated, albeit a very attractive color combination. The paint and body work are all original and excellent. We did not notice any scratches or dents in the paint. However, the front plastic splitter below the bumper is cracked (see photo). We love the addition of the 427 badging on the hood and the ZO6 insignia on the underside hood insulation. We love the chromed five spoke wheel which pop against the red calipers and silver paint.

The interior of this ZO6 is equally nice and free of virtually any blemishes. The leather is soft and does not have any cracks or warped bolstering. All interior bits are still held together solid, and the car does not shake or rattle over bumps. All accessories and features work as the should.

Mechanically, this vehicle is also in great condition. It is mostly stock with the exception of a cold air intake (professionally installed by GM aftermarket) and a Wild & Mild Remote Exhaust Control. The air intake is said to add an additional 20-30 hp. All fluids have been flushed and recently serviced, though an oil change should be performed in about 3,000 miles. This Corvette also has new brakes, rotors, and newer battery.

All service records and receipts are available.

It’s rare to find a Z06 that has been babied all its life. This car has never been raced, driven hard, or seen a race track. Considering the condition, the history, and performance numbers, this Z06 is an excellent value for any car enthusiast.

This vehicle is available for inspection at our Phoenix Showroom. For more information, contact Daniel at +1.917.890.4230 or at daniel@classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The Chevy Corvette has been in production for over 60 years and eight design generations have been created. Executives decided on the name “Corvette” by comparing it to the small maneuverable warship. This vehicle is also widely known as “America’s Sports Car” and is one of the most popular vehicles in history. This vehicle has always been offered in either a 2-door coupé or convertible. Over the years, different engines have been used ranging from 5.7-liter LT1 V8’s to 6.2-litre LT5 supercharged V8’s. Today, the standard Chevy Corvette uses a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 that gives the car 495 horsepower and a 0 to 60 acceleration of just 2.8 seconds. Notable variants of the base Chevy Corvette have been produced over the years, such as the Stingray and Z06. In the early 1970s, GM president Ed Cole was convinced to provide three NASA astronauts with new Corvettes, and this led to a long-standing unofficial tie between the companies. The Chevy Corvette is still one of the highest-performing vehicles in production and is a dream car for many!
