Lot #3008 - The hot Corvette for 1988 was RPO Z01, the limited (2,050 built) 35th Anniversary Special Edition Package, available as a coupe only. Costing an additional $4,795 over the standard coupe’s $29,480 price tag, the Z01 was packed with extras. Sporting a predominantly white exterior – including wheels, body side moldings, door handles and revised Corvette emblem – the side badging signified Corvette’s 35th Anniversary. The body roof bow was painted black, giving the car a two-tone appearance. On the inside, the white theme continued with 35th Anniversary-embroidered white leather seats, white door panels and steering wheel, and a special console bade with engraved sequence number; in this case, #1989. The Z01 option consisted of white leather sport seats, power driver and passenger seats, a blue-tinted lift-off roof panel, electronic air conditioning, an illuminated driver visor mirror, Delco-Bose stereo, rear window and side window defroster, and the Sport Handling Package. The package also included a radiator boost fan, Delco-Bilstein shocks, an engine oil cooler, heavy-duty radiator, a faster overall steering ratio, and larger aluminum wheels with Goodyear Eagle tires. This Corvette is powered by a 5.7-liter engine with automatic transmission. This particular car was gifted to Craig Jackson and his mother Nellie Jackson on the auction block at the 2006 Scottsdale Auction by longtime Barrett-Jackson customer and Corvette enthusiast Dave Ressler, who passed away recently, and the sale of this vehicle will honor his memory. 100% of the hammer price of this special Corvette will benefit the American Heart Association, marking the start of Barrett-Jackson’s yearlong “Driven Hearts” charitable initiative for the AHA.
