Car history:
2) 1972 Corvette LT-1 ZR-1, 1 of 20 made in 1972. Most Corvette enthusiasts are familiar with the legendary L88 package which was essentially a collection of limited edition racing parts installed on the L71 427/435 hp engine. I would also say that most are not that familiar with the 1970-72 ZR1 package which essentially did the same with the LT-1 350 ci small block. Much rarer than the 216 L88s made the three years prior, only 53 ZR1 Corvettes were produced during the three year span making them the rarest of all Chevy small blocks. So its a pretty big deal when one shows up for sale like this 1972 Corvette ZR1 which was recently listed for sale on eBay. Rumor has it the ZR1 RPO stood for Zora's Racer 1. There is no doubt that this special street racing package has Zora Arkus-Duntov's fingerprints all over it. As the successor to the L88 Corvette which ended production in 1969, the ZR1 package was built on top the L88 chassis utilizing the LT-1 small block. Like the L88s, the ZR1 package included the M22 Muncie Rockcrusher 4-speed heavy duty transmission, J56 heavy duty brakes, transistorized ignition, a special aluminum radiator and a special suspension that included heavy duty springs, shocks, brakes and stabilizer bars.
When the ZR1 was released in 1970, there was no fanfare, magazine comparisons or road tests like we see today. As the corporate ban on racing was still in effect, no promotion was given to a radio-delete street racer. But the back door was wide open, especially when Chevy's corporate brass were looking the other way. But word did get out to those in the know, and in 1970 25 of these special Corvettes were sold. Over the next two years, the $1,010 ZR1 package would see another 28 more examples make it out into the wild for a total production run of just 53 Corvettes.
We have all the documentation including the tank sticker, original warranty booklet with the protect-o-plate plus we have the original window sticker. This car is Bryar Blue with Black vinyl interior with only 29,980 miles. She is in immaculate condition. Color codes from the trim plate. built date is H17. $50,101 and running (RnM). June 12, 2015.
