Barely Used 1995 C4 Corvette ZR-1 Seeks New Home: eBay Find3
The C4 Corvette is hardly a collector car in today’s market, but the same can’t be said about the wonderous C4 Corvette ZR-1. And we’ve spotted a mighty fine example for sale on eBay.
This particular 1995 Corvette ZR-1 houses only 2,467 miles on the odometer and the seller says everything remains in like-new condition. We can’t back up the claim ourselves, but according to the seller, this is also one of 45 Corvette ZR-1 models finished in white for the model year. Additionally, the second roof has never left the inside of the car and everything functions as intended from the factory.
We don’t know the car’s entire backstory, but the listing says the C4 Corvette ZR-1 has been stored in a climate-controlled garage with other vehicles for years. It’s unclear how long it’s been in there, but with 2,467 miles, we’d assume it’s spent most of its like parked.
The Corvette ZR-1 was the nameplate’s first real shot at taking on some of the world’s best sports cars. Each ZR-1 featured a dual-overhead cam 5.7-liter V8 engine producing 375 horsepower. It was enough power to scoot down the quarter-mile in just 12.7 seconds, which is mighty impressive for a car from this time.
C4 Corvette values, in general, have remained fairly low, but ZR-1 models have really begun appreciating in value in the past few years. Hagerty’s pricing tool shows a concours condition 1990 Corvette ZR-1 will fetch $46,000. Cars in slightly worse condition are still rather affordable at around $23,000, and later model years sell for even less.
The seller is asking $44,999 for this car, which seems reasonable if everything is in working order as claimed. We’re not in the investment business, but this car could be worth something more one day. And on the surface, it’s a time capsule begging to see more road time.

A few comments: ZR-1 Net registry is showing 41 cars in white for 1995, not 45?
The LT5 engine received several tweaks starting with the 1993 MY, as a result power increased to 405 HP.
Having 2 “Dunn” heads is a plus, rare to find a car with two. The vin # of this car ends with 439, which
would make it one of the last 10 ZR-1’s assembled. There were only 448 units produced in 93,94 and 95.
Listing doesn’t show or mention what is included? Documentation? ZR-1 “pizza” box? Owner history?
Nice car! I still love the C4 design and am looking to maybe pick up a nice one before prices climb, which they will.
If interested in a manual trans. car but don’t want to spend the $$ for a ZR-1, the ’96 LT4 is a great choice. I had one for about 12 yrs., wish I still had it. The LT4 makes good top end power vs LT1 of that era. LT1 “runs out of breath” about 4800-5000, the LT4 comes alive about then and screams all the way to 6300. All 1996 Corvettes with the ZF 6 speed manual, had the LT4.
