It’s hard to believe that 11 years have passed since the introduction of the 2007 Ron Fellows Edition Corvette Z06. The car remains one of our favorite Special Edition Corvettes and it serves as a tribute to one of our favorite Corvette Racing drivers of all time as well.
We hardly ever see them for sale, so when they do come up like this Ron Fellows Edition that is offered for sale on eBay, it’s definitely worth pointing out why this C6 makes a great collectible Corvette worth owning.
Fellows was a key member of the Corvette Racing team from the very beginning, helping test the C5-R and then capturing the first win by the team in 2000. He won the ALMS GTS Drivers Championships in 2002, 2003 and 2004 and also contributed to all six of Chevrolet ALMS GT1 Manufacturers Championships. Fellows was also voted the most popular ALMS driver by the fans for three years straight (2004-2006).
To honor the Canadian racer as he stepped down from being a full-time driver, Chevrolet introduced the 2007 Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Championship Corvette Z06 on February 1, 2007 at the Chicago Auto Show. With just 399 examples made, they were snapped up very fast by collectors and Corvette Racing fans who tend to buy any Corvette related to the race team.
The 2007 Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Championship Corvette Z06 was the first signature edition offered with Ron’s signature and the build number found on the lid inside the center console. This example that is offered for sale by Streetside Classics of Forth Worth, Texas is number 174.
In addition to the Ron Fellows signature, these cars were special for the fact that it was the first Z06 model since 2001 to be painted White. These Arctic White Z06 tributes featured matching white headlight buckets, chrome Z06 wheels and of course the Monterey Red hash marks showing off a motif of the Canadian Maple Leaf along with the years of Ron’s ALMS Championships.
Inside the cars featured a red-trimmed console, door panels and seats. A “tech-patterned” interior trim surrounded the center IP and each car also featured a Corvette windshield banner.
This Z06 offered for sale is in stock configuration and has just 43K miles on the odometer. Offered for a sales price of $39,995 or Best Offer, documentation includes the original window sticker, owners manual, and dealer invoice. The Ron Fellows Edition Certificate of Authenticity that went to the original owner is included as well.
