This car was delivered to Chalmers Chevrolet at 1149 North Elm Place in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and was sold on March 26, 1990. It came from the Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant with the following options: ZR1 Special Performance Package, dual removable roof panels, electronic air conditioning, blue removable roof panel. The ZR1 performance package included a 5.7L MPFI DOHC 32-valve V-8, special rear tires, aluminum wheels, specific rear fascia and taillights, performance handling package, specific body side panels, selective ride and handling package, leather adjustable sport seats, six-way driver and passenger power seats, low tire pressure warning, Delco-Bose Gold Series music system with CD and cassette player, solar glass.
Dressed in Bright Red, the car’s fiberglass body panels are in very good condition, with only minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The windows are clear and crack-free; the lights are in great shape, including the pop-up, revolving headlights. Car rides on Nitto P275/40ZR-17 tires in front and P315/35ZR-17 tires in back, surrounding factory styled aluminum wheels, 17×9.5 front and 17×11 in back. All body panels are straight, the engine bay is tidy and the battery looks new. The sheet-molded compound bumpers look as good as the rest of the car.
Inside, the saddle interior is in good condition for its age with its sport bucket seats and matching carpet. The instrument panel is intact with a four-spoke steering wheel, complete with driver’s side airbag. The door panels look good, as does the center console, with the gearshift that falls easily into your right hand. Rounding out the interior is a Pioneer CD RDS receiver. Car’s original Delco-Bose Gold audio system is boxed and in the cargo bay.
Major repairs done on this car include replacing the secondary fuel injectors in May 1997; replaced starter in July 1998; removed water from fuel tank and fuel lines, serviced fuel injectors, replaced fuel filter, replaced clutch assembly, ignition module, spark plugs, driver’s side catalytic converter and electronic control module in 2001; Lingenfelter refreshed the engine through Riverside Chevrolet in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2004; replaced instrument cluster after tachometer failed, replaced crank sensor, water pump and refilled coolant in 2007; replaced car’s carpet, door trim, seats and floor mats in 2015; and replaced the gearshift knob, clutch, all four tires, new battery and oil sending unit in 2016.
Thirty years ago, GM bought Group Lotus, the UK-based consulting, engineering and performance car builder. Corvette administrators approached Lotus with the idea of co-developing the World’s Fastest Production Car based on the C4 Corvette.
The new partners designed a new engine to replace the L98 V-8 found under the standard Corvette’s hood. Dubbed the LT5, it was an aluminum-block V-8 with identical bore centers to the L98 but with four overhead camshafts and 32 valves. The LT5 featured a unique air-management system to give a wider power band by closing half of the 16 intake runners and fuel injectors when the engine was at part-throttle. Upgraded steering and braking systems were also part of the package and Lotus helped Chevy choose the settings for the standard FX3 adjustable active ride control Chevrolet fitted to the car with its “Performance,” “Sport” and “Touring” settings.
GM quickly found that the LT5 required special assembly; neither its Bowling Green plant nor any of its other assembly facilities could handle the work, so it contracted with Mercury Marine Corporation in Stillwater, Oklahoma to assemble the engines and ship them to Bowling Green.
The key way to ID a ZR-1 was from the rear; it sported a wider tail section than standard ‘Vettes with a new, convex rear fascia that had four rectangular taillights and the car had 11”-wide rear wheels.
Documentation with this car includes original window sticker, copy of window stickers, pre-delivery inspection procedure sheet and mirror hangtag, odometer disclosure statement, copies of the vehicle invoice, copies of GM-to-dealer correspondence about the ZR-1, original Chevrolet Courtesy Key for lock-outs or other emergency uses, service and maintenance receipts totaling more than $16,000, a Corvette Authentics catalog, a Pioneer CD RDS Receiver Owner’s Manual, a Corvette Music System Sampler cassette of popular rock ‘n roll hits from the 1980s and miscellaneous state taxation and insurance forms.
Competition to this Corvette in 1990 included Dodge’s Viper, Ferrari’s 348, Porsche’s 911, Toyota’s Supra Turbo, Acura’s NSX and Nissan’s 300ZX Turbo and Aston Martin’s Virage.
