I'm not familiar with the C3 ZR1. I tried a search, but it didn't produce any information. What year/years were they?

I believe it was a high performance small block engine option only 1970-72. A not often chosen option (I would suspect) because the then big block engine offered more power. So the ZR1 wasn’t the “King” in that gen. But the super small production numbers of it now make it quite valuable. https://www.google.com/search?source...j0._RM0dOHtKtQ

. Your VIN’s last 4 digits is your production number. but there were also a relatively small number of early GM owned cars used for development. Link is Registry. https://www.corvetteactioncenter.com...rvette-zr1.php

Where are you at in the process? Do you have the car, or a TPW?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the original ZR1 package for for handling? Another reason it was so low in numbers was it was a package tacked onto the LT-1 which in itself was a rare package.
