Default Is this a zr1?








The guy who's selling this is asking 6500. It has 150,000 miles on it should I go for it?

Nope thats a rough shape regular vette. Maybe worth 4k in that shape if its mechanically sound, but on a trailer doesnt look like that, probably a 2-2500 car depending where ya live

Definitely not a ZR1. It looks like it has seen better days and is needing a lot of work. I would think $3000 to $4000 at the most and even then you could easily put that much into it. Has the motor or transmission been rebuilt if not you could easily put another 3 or 4k into it.
Not sure where you are but $6500 buys a real nice, reasonable mileage car in excellent condition here in the Pacific Northwest.

The owner claims it's a zr1 but it's not. Here's more pictures for it and I live in California the owner is firm on 6500

Wow! It gets even worse with the new pictures. Strange exhaust and that rubber antenna. Run as fast as you can from this one. There are plenty of much better C4s in your area on Craigslist. Do not be in a hurry and shop around. Hell even a local dealer probably has a better car for less money.

just based on that VIN: 1G1YY23P3N5104226
YY = regular vette (YZ = ZR1)
P = LT1 (J = LT5)

tell the guy you'll pay $6500, if it comes with a $4500 cash back offer

Haha right. But I hope the seller made an honest mistake when listing it. But I doubt it.

The guy who's selling this is asking 6500.
Is this in one of those states where recreational marijuana is legal?

We even have billboards advertising "Weed Delivery" services.. Crazy. When I was growing up, you would go to jail.

A 1991 ZR1 would have an 8 in it s VIN. It would be the 12th digit. This VIN has a 1 as the 12th digit. According to the VIN it is not a ZR1.

As has been noted: no Mercury 32 valve engine, no wide butt, wrong vin digits to start. I'm not an authority, but I don't think any C4 ZR1s came with automatics. If the seller claims it's a ZR1, ask him what he's basing that claim on. Go online and look up a ZR1 and you'll see the differences immediately. Better yet, ask the seller if he'd like to bet $1000 on that being a ZR1 as delivered by GM. After you win, you'll have some scratch to put towards a decent condition car.

Itís possible someone swapped the 375 hp LT5 for a 300hp LT1




its possible someone swapped the standard 6 speed manual for a 4 speed automatic


itís possible someone swapped the Sport seats for base and took out the standard FX3 ride control and ďfull power keyĒ

itís possible someone changed the ZR1ís Wide rear bumper for the base car narrower one and didnít swap back the ďZR-1Ē badge

itís possible someone swapped the ZRís 8k rpm cluster for the LT1ís 6k

its possible someone swapped the ZR1ís 315 rear tires and 92 sawblade wheels for 1990 base wheels and tires

Its possible the third brake light was removed

its possible someone swapped a ZR1 vin with an LT1 cars vin




but HIGHLY unlikely

If it was a ZR1, they wouldnt be asking $6500 unless it needed an engine.

4k! More like 1500.00. It'd take 9k to make that a 6k dollar car....ain't even worth messing with.

and the sad part is... that some poor sob will get sucked in by this seller and be stuck with a steamy pile only to be directed to this site and have his bubble busted like a h-bomb.
