1971 Chevrolet Corvette ZR2 Convertible

Corvette aficionados take note: this Ontario Orange 1971 Stingray convertible is not only one of just 12 Corvettes built that year with the ZR2 Special Purpose LS6 Engine Package; it is one of only two convertibles and is in fact the very last of Corvette Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov’s factory-built extra-high-performance specials, an august group that includes the original 1963 Z06, the 1969 ZL1 aluminum block L88 and the ZR1 Special Purpose LT1. As the very last of the so-called Z-cars, it holds an exclusive position as one of the most historically significant cars in General Motors history. It will be offered at the Mecum Kissimmee Auctuion on Saturday, January 26th, 2013 at 4:00PM.
