A Trio of Low Mile ‘King Of The Hill’ Corvette ZR1s Head To Auction

This 1995 is the rarest of the ZR1’s to cross the block at Mecum. Clocking 10,814 miles on the odometer, along with being one of 13 cars built in Bright Aqua Metallic, should set this Corvette up to bring a respectable number.

Way back in 1970, the ZR1 name entered the Corvette lexicon and was destined to be a major part of Bow Tie history. Twenty years later, the ZR1 name re-emerged as the infamous “King of the Hill” Corvette and included a Lotus-designed, Mercury Marine-built 350 hp DOHC LT5 engine, a wider body and loads of other performance goodies.

The Red 1990, despite being the oldest ZR1 of the group, has the least amount of miles, believed to display an accurate 7,325 miles.

Three ZR1s are headed to Mecum’s auction at the Portland Expo Center on June 17-18, and are a time warp back to the early ’90s.

These are prime examples of the 6,939 ZR1s that rolled out of Bowling Green Assembly over it’s six-year model run and with so many expertly maintained examples, the auction should be a true test of the actual market value of a top tier C4. Some dealers back in the early ’90s managed to mark up the MSRP, causing the sales price to soar above $100,000. Ouch!

White and red ZR1 is ready for new owner.

All 3 ‘Vettes have the sought after original Mulroneys, ridiculously low miles, pristine interiors, and that awesome, wide body ZR1 look.

We all know that a stone stock C7 will easily out run one of these old “Corvettes From Hell,” but for anyone interested in a fine example and wondering what they’re worth, stay tuned to Corvette Online and we’ll keep you updated.
