The 1995 Chevrolet Corvette

1995 Pace Car Convertible Corvette

1995 Pace Car

1995 was the last year for the ZR-1, a total of 6939 ZR-1's were built over it's six year production run. The convertible was chosen as the pace car for the Indy 500 and a total of 527 Dark Purple Metallic over Arctic White replicas were built. New "gills" on the front fender distinguished the 1995 from other C4s. Windshield wipers were updated to reduce chatter and lift at high speed. The automatic transmissions was redesigned to improve shifting and the torque converter is both lighter and stronger. The manual transmission reverse lockout was improved to allow easier operation. The previously optional larger brake package is standard and included the latest anti-lock brake and traction control systems. Dark Purple Metallic was added as a color option. Many small changes were made to decrease rattles and water leaks including the addition of velcro straps and a water channel in the A-Pillar. In the 1995 Vette, leather is again standard and no cloth seats were available.
