1991 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 Additional Info:

This ZR-1 had an automatic transmission installed after purchase which webelieveto be a modified 700R4. The car was originally built for Boyd Jenkins of Shrevesport, LA. Mr Jenkins sustained a spinal cord injury while on active duty in Berlin in 1954, necessitating the need for removing theoriginal6 speed manual transmission (which we do NOT have). He was active as a life-member of the Shreveport chapters of both the MOPAR Magic and RRC Corvette clubs and competitively drove hi-performance cars with hand controls.This ZR-1 has a modified 350 with NOS and a claimed 0-60 of under 4 seconds. It has a roll bar and 4 point harness. The wheels are custom from Boyd Coddington. The paperwork that was lost in 2007 had listed themodifications made to the car as:all induction components plus intake and exhaust ports Extrude Honed by Arizona Speed & Marine and port matched to Morrison Brothers stainless steel headers into a Borla exhaust system. A performance chip was installed. The custom 700R4 automatic transmission by Art Carr, has both auxiliary cooler and filter, working through a 3.54:1 differential and custom half shafts.There are only 27,000 original miles on the odometer!

The car is said to have a drag racing history but all performance related records were lost when the car went (unsold) to Mecum in 2007. You will have hours of enjoyment going through the Shrevesport Times archives recreating the cars storied past. An article in the Jan/Feb 1996 ZR-1 Registry Newsletter said “… The original cams are retained, and from the deck down, the LT5 remains untouched. Shown as their feature car for the 92 SEMA show in Las Vegas, a custom 160hp nitrous system was designed and installed by NOS at their Cyprus CA headquarters. Race prepping by Custom Corvettes of Perris, CA included a six point leather covered roll cage and a four point quick release harness..... The first pass at Carlsbad with the modified 700R4 yielded an 11.05@124.30. The second pass was good for an 11.01@126.88. Over the weeks... produced progressively quicker times, until finally, a best of 10.43@133 was clocked at Carlsbad, on the bottle, slicks aired to 11lbs and open exhaust.”

Jenkins drove the car to “Thunder in Stillwater, LT5 Homecoming” at the Mercury Marine factory in Oklahoma and it can be seen in photos from this historic event. The car is street legal and has been called a ‘sleeper’.

The original Monroney sticker and ZR-1 book (pizza box) is included. We believe we are the third owner after Boyd and his son (who removed the hand controls).

Bills Auto Sales was an eBay seller (477 teal star rating) and a licensed VA dealership selling classic and vintage cars in Culpeper. When the business closed five years ago, Bill's favorite cars were put into storage buildings on the farm. Now Harness Grove is selling the few remaining cars in the collection.

A recent inspection by a third party mechanic recommended that the buyerinstallnew tires and wiper blades before driving the car on the road.
