Default A rare 04 at a great price

I have no affiliation whatsoever to the owner, consignment nor do I benefit from posting this thread. Just thought Id post it up for all Z and MY/TR enthusiasts.

Yellow with red interior? It's only rare because very few ordered that combination which was available to EVERYONE. Some vehicles are rare for a reason.

  • the 662 Torch Red/Black interiors were split up between Black, MY, TR and Machine Silver

I've never seen a breakdown of Torch Red/Black interiors per the 4 different exterior colors but I'm sure the NCM or someone has to have it.

On a side note... it may be rare but probably not as desirable as the other three color combos due to the fact some call it the Ronald McDonald color scheme.

That's a very nice looking Z06 and very low mileage. But I have to wonder with the two tow hooks installed, how many of those miles were on a track?

Is that a great price? First thing gonna have to do is change those rims and paint calipers something instead of red.

That's nearly 70% price I paid for mine new in '04 and I've enjoyed 110K miles.Just sayin

Rare doesn't always mean desirable.

Well, thats a new color combo for me. Interesting because I've never seen one before. It wouldn't be my first choice though. Have a good one!

Needs yellow wagon wheels to complete the "look".

I know I am one of the rare few that think red is the worst interior color ever. Regardless of car.
