1972 Corvette ZR1 – The Rarest of all Small-Block Chevys

Most Corvette enthusiasts are familiar with the legendary L88 package which was essentially a collection of limited edition racing parts installed on the L71 427/435 hp engine. I would also say that most are not that familiar with the 1970-72 ZR1 package which essentially did the same with the LT-1 350 ci small block. Much rarer than the 216 L88s made the three years prior, only 53 ZR1 Corvettes were produced during the three year span making them the rarest of all Chevy small blocks. So its a pretty big deal when one shows up for sale like this 1972 Corvette ZR1 which was recently listed for sale on eBay.

GM's Corvette Studio Artwork Become Framed Objects of Desire

As an automotive buff and especially as a Corvette enthusiast, I love to look at the drawings made by members of the GM design studio as they sketched out new designs and ideas for America’s sports car. Before you could buy a Corvette, GM’s studio artists first had to sketch it. And now thanks to Route 427’s “Art in Motion”, you can own some of the most iconic automotive artwork ever produced during the heyday of automotive design.

Is the World Ready for General Lee Corvette ZR1?

This Corvette ZR1 has been wrapped in the Dukes of Hazzard’s General Lee livery in anticipation for the GoldRush Rally that is being held over June 8-13, 2010. A General Lee themed Corvette is certainly over the top, however, that orange against the black wheels, headlights and carbon fiber splitter and rockers is stunning and I’m starting to question if this shade is better than the 2011 Corvette’s Inferno Orange.

Jeff Gordon Drives a Corvette ZR1 around the Monticello Motor Club

The Monticello Motor Club is a new private race resort facility built on 650 acres in Monticello, New York – just 90 minutes outside of New York City.
