In 1971, Chevrolet built eight ZR1 Corvettes, but only one of those was a convertible and the current owner of that convertible ZR1 in Marlboro, New Jersey has listed it for sale on Hemmings.
The ZR1 option package included the LT1 engine putting out 330 hp and 360 lb-ft of torque, an upgraded suspension, power brakes and the M-22 four-speed manual transmission.
This particular ZR1 is Steel Cities Gray with Black leather interior and has only 16,423 miles on the odometer. The current owner claims that it's completely original and unrestored, and has been fully documented with the tank sticker, validated by the NCRS, dealer order, owner history, CMD letter & Shipping Data.
Sold new by Mancuso Chevrolet of Skokie, IL, the ZR1 was owned by Gary Konner of Malcolm Konner Chevrolet.
