1990 Chevrolet Corvette
This is a rare chance to own a piece of Corvette history! This car was built on November 8 1989 and was purchased on March 12 1990 by Corvette enthusiast Bob Gold from Forbes Chevrolet in Camp Hill PA. Bob sold it to Corvette legend Chip Miller (it was actually titled to Chip's wife Judy) on July 26 1994 with 11920 miles on the odometer and Chip drove it and kept it in his collection in Carlisle PA. Chip tragically passed away in March of 2004 from Amlyoidosis. The car had about 21000 miles on it when it was sold at the Spring 2006 Carlisle auction (the car is shown on the flyer for this auction) to a dealer from SC for $26200. This dealer subsequently offered the car at the Mecum auction in Carlisle in April 2006 with a reserve of $49000 and the Corvettes of Carlisle auction in August 2007 for a reserve of $30000. It did not sell at either auction and was subsequently stored at an airplane hanger in SC until I purchased it from an agent of the dealer in August 2010. The title signed over to me was still in the name of Judy Miller.
I am a lifelong Corvette enthusiast who has owned 24 Corvettes. I know the cars and am meticulous about caring for them. I have driven this car sparingly but regularly to keep it fresh. The car is not perfect but is an extremely nice survivor. Now is the time to buy as after years of languishing ZR-1 values are now rapidly appreciating as collectors realize how unique these cars are and as the supply of truly nice ZR-1's has dwindled.
I have a lot of documentation that goes with the car including build sheet invoice window sticker ZR-1 key chain auction recordsetc. Also this car can be seen in the background in 2 scenes of the movie "The Quest" when they are interviewing Chip in front of his collection. I do have both the painted and glass tops.
Reserve price has been reduced to less than appraised value. Selling due to purchase of a new house.
This car is available for in person payment and pickup only and is located in Greensboro NC.
