Base Corvette Sport Coupe (1YY07)

  • The base price of the 1991 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe without any optional equipment.
  • A 350 cubic inch, 245/250 horsepower engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, removable body-color roof panel, and cloth seats were included in the base price.
  • All 1991 Corvettes had restyled rear exteriors were similar in appearance to the 1991 ZR-1 Corvette because both had convex rear fascias with four rectangular tail lamps. All models also featured a new front end design with wrap around parking-cornering-fog lamps, new side panel louvers, and wider bodyside moldings in body color.
  • Base wheels were the same size as the 1990 Corvette (17×9.5) but were a new design.

Base Corvette Convertible (1YY67)

  • The base price of the 1991 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible without optional equipment.
  • All 1991 Corvettes had restyled rear exteriors were similar in appearance to the 1991 ZR-1 Corvette because both had convex rear fascias with four rectangular tail lamps. All models also featured a new front end design with wrap around parking-cornering-fog lamps, new side panel louvers, and wider bodyside moldings in body color.
  • Base wheels were the same size as the 1990 Corvette (17×9.5) but were a new design.

Callaway Twin Turbo (not GM installed) (B2K)

  • Addition of Callaway Twin Turbos to the existing L98 engine.
  • The Callaway Twin-Turbo option ended with the 1991 model year. Callaway built the 500th twin-turbo on September 26, 1991 and subsequent builds were specially badged and optioned (for an $600.00) as “Callaway 500.”
  • This option generated a specific equipment build with standard engines at the Corvette assembly plant. The cars were then drop-shipped to Callaway’s Connecticut shop for installation of Callaway-modified twin-turbo engines.
  • This is not a factory installed option. The Callaway Corvette could be ordered through participating Chevrolet dealers. Fully assembled Corvettes were then shipped from the Bowling Green Corvette plant to Callaway Engineering in Old Lyme, Connecticut, where it received engine (and other) modifications.
    Full Chevrolet warranty applied except for powertrain which was covered by Callaway for twelve months or 12,000 miles.

Dual Removable Roof Panels (coupe) (C2L)

  • This option was included as part of the ZR1 package.

Performance Axle Ratio (G92)

  • Optional performance axle ratio of 3.07:1 or 3.33:1.
  • Was only offered when the Corvette was ordered with an automatic transmission.
  • The actual “Performance Axle Ratio” varied from year to year. The G92 Option was available when ordering either the Corvette or the Camaro throughout the 1980’s and early ’90’s.

Engine Oil Cooler (KC4)

  • Internal cooler used to cool internal components of the automobile’s internal combustion engine.

6-Speed Manual Transmission (MN6)

  • An optional, no-cost, 6-speed manual transmission.
  • The six-speed manual transmission was designed jointly by ZF (Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen) and Chevrolet and was initially built by ZF in Germany.
  • A computer-aided gear selection feature bypassed second and third gears (and locked out fifth and sixth) for improved fuel economy when a series of low performance criteria were met.

California Emission Requirements (NN5)

  • Revised emission/exhaust components to meet California Emission standards

Low Tire Pressure Warning Indicator (UJ6)

  • Low tire/air pressure monitoring and warning system.
  • Sensors strapped to each side of the inside of each wheel sent a radio signal to a instrument-panel receiver if pressure in any tire dropped below a preset limit.
  • This option was included as part of the ZR1 package.

Stereo System, Delco-Bose (UU8)

  • 200 watt Delco Bose AM/FM stereo radio with cassette.
  • A power delay feature was added to all models which permitted the stereo system and power windows to operate after the ignition was switched to “off” or “lock”. Power was cut after the driver’s door was opened or after 15 minutes, whichever came first.
  • The AM band for radios was expanded to receive more frequencies.

Stereo System with CD, Delco-Bose (U1F)

  • 200 watt Delco Bose AM/FM stereo radio with compact disc player.
  • This option was included as part of the ZR1 package.
  • To discourage theft, the CD player required an electronic security code input after battery disconnect.
  • A power delay feature was added to all models which permitted the stereo system and power windows to operate after the ignition was switched to “off” or “lock”. Power was cut after the driver’s door was opened or after 15 minutes, whichever came first.

Luggage Rack (convertible) (V56)

  • Optional luggage rack that was mounted to the rear decklid of the Corvette convertible.

Adjustable Suspension Package (coupe) (Z07)

  • Heavy Duty Suspension with Ride Control Selection.
  • New for 1991, the Z07 option effectively combined the previous Z51 performance handling package with FX3 selective ride/handling, but with minor differences. The new Z07 option used all heavy-duty suspension parts so the ride adjusted from firm to very firm.
  • Option Z07 included options KC4 (Engine Oil Cooler), FX3 (Selective Ride and Handling), heavy-duty springs, shocks, stabilizers and bushings, and heavy-duty brakes. Manual transmissions were specified, but build records report that 169 Corvettes that were equipped with the Z07 option were automatics.
  • Intended for aggressive driving or competition, the Z07 option was limited to coupes.

Special Performance Package (coupe) (ZR1)

  • Extensive performance upgrades to the base model Corvette.
    The ZR1 option included unique bodywork (doors, rear quarters, rocker panels, rear fascia, and rear upper panel.
  • ZR1 optioned Corvettes were fitted with special Goodyear Z-rated P315/35ZR17 tires that were mated to 11-inch wide rear rims.
  • The ZR1 option included a number of other RPO’s (normally listed separately) including: Power Passenger Seats (AC1), Power Driver Seats (AC3), Sports Seats, Leather (AQ9), Selective Ride and Handling, electronic ( FX3), Stereo System with CD, Delco Bose (U1F), and Low Tire Pressure Warning Indicators (UJ6) and a specially laminated “solar” windshield were included. Additionally, the six-speed manual transmission (MN6) was required.
  • The ZR1 was also fitted with a special LT5 engine (that was unique and limited to the ZR1 coupe.) The LT5 engine was designed with the same V-8 configuration and 4.4 inch bore spacing as the standard L98 engine, but was otherwise an all new Chevrolet/Lotus design with four overhead camshafts and 32 valves..
  • Despite extensive use of aluminum, the complexity of the LT5 engine caused it to weigh just under 40 pounds more than the base model iron-block engine.
  • The ZR-1 “valet” power access system continued, but was revised to default to normal power on each ignition cycle. The full power light was relocated next to the valet key.
  • Despite its similar appearance to the 1991 L98 Corvette, the ZR-1 still received unique doors and rear body panels to accept the 11-inch wide rear wheels. The high mount center stop lamp for the 1991 ZR-1s continued to be roof mounted.
  • The LT5 Engine produced 375 horsepower but still managed to avoid the EPA’s gas guzzler tax.
  • The LT5 Engines were assembled by Mercury Marine in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and were then shipped to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green Kentucky for ZR1 Corvette assembly.
  • Chevrolet service departments returned LT5 engines to Mercury Marine for certain repairs. Customers were given the choice of a replacement engine or return of their original engine, if repairable.
  • RPO K05 (Engine Block Heater) was not available when the ZR1 option was ordered.
  • The ZR1 option was only available in the coupe bodystyle.

Notes:

  • RPO K05 Engine Block Heater was available with base engines and was intended for Canada export only.
  • In 1991, 334 Engine Block Heaters were sold at $20.00 per car.
  • Mufflers were revised for the 1991 Corvette to feature larger section sizes and better control tuning of exhaust note. The mufflers had lower back pressure for improved performance, but power ratings were not changed.
  • While the 1991 ZR-1 Corvette continued to have a high mounted third stop light at the top of the rear window, the L98 Corvette coupe and convertible included a third taillight mounted in the rear fascia.
  • The World Challenge race series continued in 1991, but Bowling Green did not build specific Corvettes for the series. All race modifications were the responsibility of the car’s owner.
  • Finned power steering coolers were included with all 1991 models.
  • A power wire for cellular phones or other 12 volt devices was added.
  • A sensor utilizing an oil pan float was added to all models. The words “low oil” appeared in the driver information center for a low oil condition.
