1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1
This car is the first ZR-1 built by Larry Shinoda- Jim Williams Designs/ Car Company. It was the ZR-1 used on the promotional tours to promote the body kit designed
I am the fourth owner of the car. This car was originally owner by Jim Williams. It appeared at many special events as well in the magazines. I purchased the car with about 15,000 miles. This car is something special, the LT5 loves to “run” and is extremely strong. It ran several Silver State Classic races before I retired it. I have all the magazines articles and pictures of the car I could find.
The car was painted at GM Special projects using House of Kolors Paint. The car was original red and then painted with 50/50 mix of KBC11 Apple Red and KBC01 Brandywine painted with FBC07 Gamma Gold Base
The only problem with the car is the hood was dropped onto the doors and on each there is a chip as seen in the photo. The nose was repainted by the second owner.
The second owner also put 1994 seats in the car, I also have the original 1990 seats and they will go with the car. This car has been a blast to have, as it was my first Corvette.
Recent Work done includes: New tires. Last year I found a new original OEM clutch and flywheel and replaced the 3rd party parts that had been put in the car. I replaced the window and door seals, headliner on painted roof, new upholstery on both seats with recreated embroidery in the headrests. The Flowmaster exhaust was also replaced.
The car comes with two sets of wheels; the chrome “Saw Blades” on the 5 spoke ZR-1 style wheel. A painted roof and “tinted” roof, and custom cover will come with the car.
This car has lots of history and if you are looking for a piece of Corvette history this may be the car for you.
