1970 Corvette ZR1 thru the gears
A quick blast thru the gears with an all-original 1970 ZR1. The ZR1 was
Zora Duntov's last high-compression Corvette designed specifically for SCCA
class B racing. The ZR1 Special Purpose Engine Package consisted of the
350/370hp LT1 solid lifter engine stuffed into an L88 prepped chassis which
includes: M22 HD 4spd, F41 springs, shocks & spindle struts, HD Aluminum
Radiator, Lightweight flywheel/clutch combo, J50/J56 Dual pin front brake
calipers, HD Posi-Traction (4.56:1 in this case), as well as high-torque
starter. ZR1's could not be ordered with a radio, or power accessories.
Deluxe interior and tilt/tele column were the only "options" permitted. The
ZR1 was the last production Chevrolet to be sold with the warning: "Not
recommended for normal driving situations."
