make / manufacturer: Chevrolet
model name / number: Camaro
The word "legendary" is often overused these days, but no other word is as accurate when discussing a 1969 Chevrolet ZL1 Camaro. Created due to the success of Jim Hall's Chaparral/Chevrolet aluminum blocks in the Can Am racing series, the ZL1 was suggested by Chevy dealer Fred Gibb as a ringer for the upcoming Pro Stock class in NHRA drag racing. Although prohibitively expensive, the ZL1 (COPO 9560) became an instant legend and remains so to this day. This extraordinary 1969 Camaro is a worthy and thunderous tribute to these iconic beasts. Lurking beneath the correct steel ZL2 cold air induction hood is one of only 427 GMPP Anniversary Edition 427 all-aluminum engines produced. Manufactured on the same tooling as the originals (!), these firebreathers are stuffed with goodies including a forged steel crank and rods, forged aluminum pistons, a BIG hydraulic roller cam, and aluminum heads sporting enormous 2.19/1.88 intake/exhaust valves. Additional features include power steering, power 4-wheel disc brakes, air conditioning, a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, tilt steering, and fresh B.F.G. T/A Radial tires (235/60R15 F, 245/60R15 R) wrapped around black rally wheels with chrome caps for a beautifully sinister appearance.
