This first-year ZR-1 is one of the finest you'll find!


Without a doubt, Corvette Mike sells some of the finest and rarest Corvettes ever made, but the 1990 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 the dealership has listed on Bring A Trailer is one of the most impressive. With just under 450 original miles, this first-year ZR-1 is an absolute gem, and as C4 Corvette prices continue to rise, this could definitely become an investment-grade classic!

If, for some reason, a 450-mile, first-year ZR-1 isn't cool enough, this Corvette comes with a well-documented history. According to Corvette Mike, this car was originally purchased by 1950s child actor Johnny Crawford, and it even has Crawford's name engraved on the ZR-1's "pizza box" along with the VIN. The second owner was a California car collector, and Corvette Mike recently acquired this ZR-1 from the collector's family.

Of course, what really makes all C4 ZR-1s so special is the world-class performance capabilities. The heart of this beast is a Lotus-developed 5.7-liter LT5 V8 that was rated at 375 horsepower, which was far superior to the 245-horsepower rating of a base 1990 Corvette. A six-speed manual gearbox sends this power to the rear tires that are so wide that the ZR-1 received exclusive body to widen the rear haunches.
