Does anyone know of or have pictures of a 1990 Charcoal Metallic ZR-1 with gray or black interior for sale?

I don't believe that I've ever seen an early ZR1 in Charcoal Metallic. It would actually be great to see pictures of one in that color!! Seems as though the majority of the early ones I've seen are red or black. A couple dark red metallic cars here and there as well.

Yes, I realize it is a needle in the haystack question, but I'm just curious if there are any out there for sale. There weren't too many produced in that color.

Using 'Registry' information I'd think it much easier to just use VIN information to search typical sale sites. VIN information for you shouldn't be an issue! Surprised you didn't look there 1st

76 cars?

Yes, Iím aware there are only 76 cars. I just thought I might get a response this way as well. The other site is very helpful.

Not sure if you spotted either of these:

Red interior on this first one:

This one has been listed for quite some time and is exactly what you are looking to find:

37 miles ? Wow....Days listed -- 5 years.Lol...Car looks sharp in that color...

Has to be the lowest ZR-1 in miles out there I would imagine....When I bought mine in 14 there was a 90 this color for I think 20,000 dollars....Car was real nice...

I found a charcoal metallic / gray interior 1990 ZR-1 #334 in March of 2001 in Petaluma California with 60,000 one owner miles on it.

Sold it to a guy in Philly in 2003 and he sold it to a guy named Chip down in Georgia a few years later.

I didn't consider that color to be an accurate name for it because to me it looked brown.

It did look nice, however... I would have preferred the color had more of a dark gray look to it.

Wow, $52K for that one. I understand there were only 42 made with Charcoal exterior and light gray interior, not sure how many had a black interior. Manual climate control is also rare.

Makes me wonder if it is time to sell mine???

Wow 37 miles...Has to be one of the lowest miles on a sports car I have ever seen....All though look at the engine...Not very well protected for s car in storage as long as this one.....Least the owner could have done was regularly clean it and maybe condition the hoses and the rubber.....It looks like none of that was done....

You need to do that to any surface that will be stored for this long....

Considering your car has been recently judged through NCRS and the 61,XXX miles, what would you consider your car should sell for compared to that one?
