    Default How many Z07 owners do we have here?

    OK, after reading/helping JimiJam with his investigative search, and finding out he is also a Z07 owner. I'm just wondering, How many others here at CAC have the Z07 package on their cars?

    A little rundown here. The Z07 package is the "Special Performance Handling" option, available on coupes only between 1991 and 1995. It featured special high rate springs, the FX3 adjustable shocks, larger front and rear sway bars (30mm and 24mm respectively), J55 heavy duty brakes (this was an upgrade for 91-94 model years and became standard on all the 95 models), performance axle ratio, sport seats, 9.5 wheels at all four corners and 275/40 tires (again this was only different for the 93-95 model years as those were the standard size for the 91-92 Corvette). I don't have my numbers in front of me right now, but production was less than 1000 in each of those years (IIRC), 883 for the 1994 model year.

    Mine is a white/red A4 which I think is kind of rare as most of the Z07's I have run across are 6 speeds. I have heard that after 91 that Z07s were about 1/2 and 1/2 A4 to M6, but the ones I have run across don't support that info. I know that Z07coupe in Lenexa, KS has a 92 A4 (beautiful car, Paul). Supposedly 1991 Z07s were all M6 but that has been proven wrong as there are at least 2 verified Z07 A4 1991 cars. I am just the second owner and have about 118K miles on the clock. (like JimiJam I didn't know that I bought a Z07 until after I got it home (a little quicker than Jimi figured it out though, just a few days later, not a year or more )

    OK so those of you who have a Z07 check in here. Lets see if we can root out some more of these somewhat rare cars. And give some pertinent info about your car.

    Hello toms94! Glad you decided to start this thread. As you and others know already I have a Black 95 Z07, the guy I bought it from made sure I knew it was a Z07 he even had personalized tags that pointed it out! The dual power sport seats are also part of the package. When I bought it it had 62,447 miles, now has 64,300. Mine is a 6 speed and have read that the auto's are more rare/fewer. So far "she" has been nothing but a joy to own. Can't wait to hear from other Z07 owners.

    toms94,

    Some additional info.

    Car was purposely built by the original owner which was my neighbor for A/S SCCA racing. It was raced hard for sure of the 49K miles 20K + were on the track. As I'm told it is also one of a handful of Z07s with custom rate front and rear springs by GM. It does not have the typical rate Z07 springs. My neighbor who had intimate connections with GM racing knew of these springs and had them special ordered. Has all options except 40th Ann. package, ZR1, and no tire pressure sensors or two top option. Being all black it does not have the white leather seats either. Car has all documentation from original order sheet to window sticker along with with a host of other dealer paper work.
    One sad note is that the original LT1 was destroyed at Kentucky motor speedway in 2004. The good news is that the facility that replaced the engine was able to find a 1993 factory replacement long block. I have had to do alot of work to bring it back to original with a few upgrades. Borla exhaust to replace the striaght pipes, used '95 fenders instead of the '93s and found a set of factory NOS 1993 17x11 ZR1 wheels for the back otherwise all factory.

    tcxd40, you have the build sheet? If so, which springs does it show installed? Did they install the special springs at the factory or was that a dealer installed option? I would be interested in knowing.

    toms94,
    Factory build sheet pulled from the tank is in the file along with all the other paper work.

    From what Bob(original owner) had told me the springs were installed at Bowling Green. They were swapped out for the factory springs while on the assembly line. I believe that the codes on the build sheet reflect the factory spring rates for the Z07 package. I have had discussions with some of Bob's racing buddies and they have verified everything Bob has told me. I'll look to see what is in the Frt, RR spring boxes on the build sheet.

    I am another one who didn't know I had a Z07 until I got home. I was looking for a good clean yellow C4 with a 3.07 rear and FX3. Finding out it was a Z07 was a nice bonus. Mine is a 94 competition yellow Z07 with the A4. Going off percentages of options sold in 94 and guesstimates I have my car around one of five to eight yellow A4 Z07's in 94. Wish we had more exact numbers from GM. This car is fully documented and all original except for tires and battery. Just under 49K and I drive it like I stole it

    Not doing that great...I only have 7 in the database right now. I'm pretty sure that there are some more here at CAC.

    I agree with you on that.

    I'm sure there is alot of vette owners who don't even know what they are driving.

    What we need is for everyone to check the tag under the console cover and check for the Z07 code, which should be listed.
