1969 Chevy Camaro ZL1

Here is an example of a relatively unknown classic car for many. Its name draws question marks of all kinds-and for good reason. With only 69 copies produced, the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a rare gem indeed. Some featured a 427 cid V-8 engine, while others began with a 396 cid 375 bhp engine. As the first of it kind, this Chevy engine had an aluminum block. The 427 cid, a speed demon in its own right, boasted over 500 bhp, and according to the Auto Editors of Consumer Guide, it was the most “powerful engine Chevrolet ever offered to the public.”
