This 1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 shows just under 32k miles and is finished in Bright Red over red leather. Power is from a 5.7L quad-cam V8 paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The car was acquired by the seller from its previous owner in Louisiana through a BaT auction June 2017, and subsequent service included the installation of new Goodyear tires as well as a vacuum leak repair and ignition coil replacement. Now located in southern California, this C4 ZR-1 is sold with two tops, service records, a new cover, spares, a clean Carfax report, and a clear California title in the seller’s name.
The condition of the Bright Red paint is shown in several close-up photos below, and a handful of chips and other small imperfections are described by the seller. A small amount of delamination is reportedly present on the upper edge of the windshield.
The factory 17″ sawblade wheels measure 9.5” wide up front and 11” in the rear, all wearing new Goodyear tires mounted in August 2017. A removable glass targa panel is included in the sale along with a body-color version.
The red leather interior was fitted with an NOS lower right seat cover under prior ownership, and the seating surfaces and carpets are detailed up close in the gallery. Several scratches are present on the plastic rear cover of the driver seat. The air conditioning system retains R12 refrigerant and was said to work well by the prior owner.
Instrumentation includes a digital speedometer and analog tach with a 7,000 rpm redline. Approximately 31,600 miles are shown on the digital odometer, 500 of which have been added by the seller over the past year. The Bose audio system is in need of an overhaul according to the previous owner and the seller.
Designed by Lotus and built by Mercury Marine, the quad-cam 5.7L LT5 V8 was factory rated at 375 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF 6-speed manual gearbox. An oil change was completed in October 2017, while a vacuum leak repair and ignition coil replacement were performed in May 2018.
Maintenance during previous ownership consisted mostly of fluid changes, though all 16 fuel injectors were replaced in 2017 as a precautionary measure. Modifications are reportedly limited to an aftermarket ECM chip and spark plug wires.
The Carfax report dates from the prior sale and shows no accidents or other damage through spring 2015. The car was reportedly stored in Covington, Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina and is said to have remained unaffected by the ensuing floods. A California emissions test was passed in July 2017 per the seller.
Documentation consists of a window sticker showing a $61k MSRP, a laminated build sheet, and service receipts. Also included are factory books and manuals as well as a spares package with the original Goodyear Gatorback tires and other removed parts. A new cotton car cover and battery charger will also be provided.
