The Owner Of This Corvette Has Been An Avid Corvette Enthusiast For
Better Than Five Decades. With Many Frame Off Restorations
Performed In Past And Winning Bloomington Gold, He Decided To Build
This Amazing ONE OF ZR1 Corvette. Always Admiring The Corvettes Of
The 56-62 Era, The SR2's, Sebring Race Cars, The Motorama Dream
Cars And One-Of Specials That Were Built By The Factory At That
Time, He Decided To Design A Corvette To Fit A Theme That Would
Incorporate The Features Of Those Vehicles. Wanting To Do Something
That Was Not Being Done At That Time, He Commissioned A Designer To
Build A Round Tube Chassis Using The Latest Corvette Suspension Of
The Day And Called It An SRIII. This Is Serial #1. After This
Built, Many Corvette Custom Builders Decided To Purchase About 50

Dual Overhead Cam, All Aluminum) Factory Rated At 375 HP And Paired

Needed To Install This Engine And Included A Custom Air Inlet To
Provide A Transition From The Twin Air Ducts That Bring Cool Air In
Through K&N Filters, Mounted To The Grill Area, To The Engine.

Be-Cool To Work Specifically With The Unique Demands Of This
Engine. A Stainless Steel Gas Tank Was Fabricated By Rock Valley
And Incorporates A High Volume Electric Fuel Pump Specific To The
Demands Of The Engine.

And It Was Found That The Only Brake Booster And Master Cylinder
Combination That Would Provide Proper Braking And Hood Clearance,
Coincidentally Was The Original ZR1 Booster.
Lingenfelter Performance Provided The Headers That Were Compatible
With The Engine And Overcame The Chassis Clearance Problems, With
The Added Bonus Of A Modest Increase In Power! The Rest Of The
Exhaust System Consists Of 2 �" Pipe And Chambered Mufflers. The
Entire System Was Jet-Coated To Keep It Looking Fresh.
The Dana 44 Posi Was Modified With An Optional 3.73:1 Gear.
Halibrand Kidney Bean Style Wheels In 16" Were Selected As They
Would Clear The C4 Brakes. Tire Size Selected Was P225/60ZR16 Front
And Rear As These Tires Would Give The Maximum Width Allowable

Prominent Features On The Body Are The Bright Polished Stainless
Steel Side Coves And Scoops Which Are Reminiscent Of The SR2. The
Grill Oval Is Painted Body Color. What Stands Out The Most Are The
7" Driving Lights Which Were Integrated Into The Grill; The Grill
Bar Was Also Set Back 2" Into The Opening.

Well With The Stripes And Interior.
