1995 Corvette ZR-1

Model Year Highlights:

  • For 1995, Copper Metallic and Black Rose Metallic were no longer available as colors, but Dark Purple Metallic was added. Side-gill panels were revised to distinguish 1995 models from 1994 models.
  • Recommended tire pressures were decreased from 35psi to 30psi (except for ZR-1s). RPO FX3 spring rates were lowered to improve ride quality.
  • Windshield wiper arms had revised contact angels and higher contact patches to reduce windshield chatter and lift.
  • Interior refinements included new french-stich seams for the seats, an automatic transmission fluid temperature readout, numerous unseen velcro straps to reduce squeeks and rattles, stronger radio mount to reduce CD skipping, and a new drip tube was incorporated into A-pillar weather stripping to reduce water intrusion.
  • Corvette paced the Indianapolis 500 race in 1995 and Chevrolet produced a special Dark Purple and White convertible pace car model. On January 3, 1995, Chevrolet announced to its dealers that 522 pace cars would be produced with 87 of these for Indy festival and public relationsh use and 20 for Canada and European export. The remaining 415 would go to each of the top 415 dealers. Actual final production was 527.
  • In late 1994, connecting rods were changed to a new powdered-metal design to improve strength and weight uniformity. Fuel injectors were revised to better cope with alcohol-blended fuels and to reduce fuel dripping after engine shut-down. Engine cooling fan was modified for more quiet operation.
  • The four-speed automatic clutch controls were improved for smoother shifting, and the torque converter made lighter and stronger. The 6-speed manual was redesigned by replacement of the reverse lockout with a high-detent design for easier operation.
