Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

When Chevrolet introduced the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 to the world at the Geneva Motor Show, a new chapter of Corvette performance was written. Nicknamed “King of the Hill”, the new supercar Corvette featured an aluminum dual overhead cam engine capable of 375 horsepower and could rip a 0-60 mph time in the 4s – pretty fast in those days. The auto media loved the new Corvette and it was featured on just about every car magazine cover in its day.

Buyer reaction to the C4 Corvette ZR-1 was also red-hot despite the nearly $30,000 upcharge over the base Corvette for the ZR-1 package. Like the 1978 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car, intense speculation about the future collectibilty of the ZR-1 also drove many buyers to pluck down the $60,000 for the Corvette only to store it away for a future sale.

It was in those days that he started riding his bike to a nearby town to watch drag races each Sunday, and wouldn’t you know, the car that caught his eye the most even then was a 1961 silver Corvette.

General Motors to Restore the 1992 'One Millionth' Corvette Rescued from Sinkhole

When Humpty Dumpty took his big tumble a few years back, all the King’s horses and all the King’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again. Well, the King obviously didn’t choose the right people for the job—he should have contacted the talented craft workers of the Design Fabrication Operation at General Motors’ Global Design Center in Warren, Mich.

You see, in addition to their normal duties fabricating and assembling many of GM’s top design study vehicles and futuristic show cars, they have undertaken a task akin to putting Humpty back together—restoring to its previous glory, the 1 Millionth Corvette convertible that was heavily damaged when it was swallowed by the National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole back in February.
