132320 / 1969 Chevy Camaro ZL1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6t64xop It's hard to know where to start with a car of this caliber, so perhaps it's best to get the big stuff out of the way first: this nearly flawless 1969 Camaro carries a correct, authentic, original ZL1 aluminum 427 engine: #62 out of 69 built, to be exact. With only three of the 69 original ZL1 Camaros built still carrying their matching-numbers powertrains, they are exceedingly rare today and are perhaps the Holy Grail of muscle cars. This one is a mirror image of ZL1 #62, the only red-on-red ZL1 produced, and has been restored to exceptional, highly-accurate standards and is already a national prize winning piece. So you may be thinking that it's just a tribute with a correct ZL1 engine, but I think that does a disservice to this car. The engine installed in this car is a real 1969 Camaro ZL1 that has been authenticated by Jerry MacNeish as the real deal. What defines a "real" ZL1, the engine or the body? No, this one isn't a 100% matching numbers ZL1, but it's not simply a clone, either. When this ZL1 Camaro engine was discovered, it was a no-brainer to build an exact replica of the car around it. And with that, we're at the crux of this car's existence: does the body or the engine make it a real ZL1? Would a real ZL1 body shell with a replacement iron 427 still be a ZL1 Camaro? As a duplicate of #62, it is correct Garnet Red, and the finish is gorgeous. It's obvious that no corners were cut and that someone spent the long dollar to make this car show-quality in every way. Panel gaps are exact, alignment is near perfect, and the finish has been color sanded and buffed beyond any factory efforts in 1969. All COPOs received the cowl induction hood and most got the ducktail spoiler as well, since they all started off as SS396 cars. Chrome and trim is concours quality, the glass is all new and date code correct, and all the stainless has been polished. The COPOs, ZL1s included, received no special badges beyond the simple Camaro on the fenders, making them perhaps the ultimate factory-built sleepers. The engine under the hood is unquestionably a correct all-aluminum ZL1 V8, thanks to a verification by noted Camaro expert Jerry MacNeish. The ZL1 was similar to the mighty L88, which featured aluminum heads and an iron block, and both engines shared the same 430 horsepower rating from the factory. However, the aluminum block, which was developed for Can-Am racing, was a first for a Chevy production engine, and a fully assembled ZL1 weighed around 500 pounds—about as much as a small block 327. The truth of the matter is that the ZL1 actually made more than 500 horsepower in street trim, and with littler more than a pair of slicks, these were legitimate 11-second cars. Best of all, they were street legal with a warranty! The engine bay is beautifully detailed and correct in every way. At first glance, it looks just like any L88 COPO, but then you notice the block isn't Chevy Orange. Detailing is exemplary, with correct stamps, markings, and decals throughout. And, of course, the easy stuff like the hoses, clamps, and wiring harness are accurate reproduction pieces. You'll also find that this car still carries a fully functional AIR injection smog pump—good luck finding one of those today. Although you could get a ZL1 with an automatic, a majority, including #62, were equipped with a rugged Muncie 4-speed manual and the strongest rear end GM made—the legendary 12-bolt, which was stuffed with 4.10 gears and a Posi. Chambered Exhaust was standard, and while it was aggressive, it was also light. Front disc brakes and a heavy-duty F41 suspension were standard equipment with the ZL1. It rides on COPO-spec 14-inch steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps and a set of G70-14 Goodyear Polyglas tires. The bright red interior is also correct and is in outstanding condition. As I mentioned, there are a few extra options, including a console with auxiliary gauges, which looks appropriate between the restored red buckets. A standard steering wheel was what you got when you ordered a COPO, and this one is in fine condition. Every component in the dash, including the gauges, ventilation controls, and AM radio has been rebuilt and remains fully functional. The trunk features a new mat and matching spare on a steel wheel. I leave it to you to decide what this car really is. It has already won awards at the highest levels, including a gold award from Super Chevy and an AACA National First Prize, so there's no question that it's accurately restored. The foremost expert in the field has verified the engine, and it exactly duplicates an original ZL1 Camaro's specifications in every way. So you can choose to look at it as a nicely done tribute car with a $100,000 engine, or as a rebuilt ZL1 with a $500,000 discount. Either way, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a ZL1 you can actually drive and enjoy. Call now!

2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - Phase Two - Refining Launch Control





2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Walk Around with GM's Performance Design Director
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/Camaro/2012/zl1-coupe/ Tom Peters who is the Director for Performance Vehicles at GM was gracious enough to give Autobytel a thorough performance walk around describing the design and performance details on the new 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 coupe. First of all you will note the larger opening in the bumper for increased cooling capacity. The front splitter is the same height as the one found on the Corvette ZR-1. All the details on the front of the Camaro ZL1 were developed and tested in the wind tunnel. The air in the front is not only diverted to cool the radiator but also the front brakes. The hood vent is functional and directs air out the top which aids in preventing lift and creating down force which is important for high speed stability. The hood vents adds a unique character to the front of the car. It also communicates a very serious performance oriented message in a beautifully integrated way. Along the side of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 you will notice the rocker panels which are called rocker splitters. These side panels help contribute by adding down force and reducing lift. On thing you should notice is that the fenders bulge in order to fit larger width tires. The front tires measure 285 in width with the rear tires measuring 305 in the rear. This provides a huge contact patch for the 580 horsepower the engine creates. Behind the light weight rims are huge Brembo brakes. At the rear of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 you will notice the rear spoiler. This wing has been modified and optimized to even out the amount of rear down force on the front of the vehicle. The rear diffuser also adds a bit of down force and helps move any trapped air out from under the ZL1. Another neat detail on the Camaro ZL1 are the twin dual Exhaust pipes. Learned through the development of the Corvette ZR-1; the Exhaust has a value to optimize backpressure during normal operation. But during wide-open throttle they open up to increase performance and give the car a menacing growl which adds to the overall character of the vehicle. On the inside of the car there are many performance details too! The steering wheel is based on a racing configuration and features a flat bottom. The wheel is wrapped in ultra-luxurious Alcantara Leather. The seats also feature Alcantara inserts as well as the shift knob. There was an incredible amount of attention and time paid to the ergonomics of the shift knob and steering wheel. The heads-up display and G-Force meter give the driver the performance information he needs. The 200 MPH speedometer reminds the driver that the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is one very serious performance sports car. The ZL1 is an outstanding car that exudes confidence both on and off the track. The performance capabilities of this car have been well integrated and the Camaro's beauty really shines through. All these performance upgrades all to the overall character of the Camaro ZL1. This vehicle is a great car to drive and experience.

2012 COPO Camaro: GM's Baddest Factory Camaro Ever! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 6
It's the baddest factory Camaro ever! The 2012 COPO Camaro is a pure drag racing car built to compete in NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes, and in this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we go behind the scenes within General Motors to learn about the car, watch some radical burnouts, meet some of the people behind the COPO, see one of the engines on the Dyno, and visit the Performance Build Center where the engines are assembled. At the time of our visit, the only COPO was the very first one, known as the Proof of Concept car, serial number 001. GM was not ready to release engine power numbers, drag times, or vehicle weights, as class details are still being worked out with the National Hot Rod Association. COPO stands for Central Office Production Order, a process that was used in the '60s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options. Dealer Fred Gibb figured out how to use the system to get GM to assemble cars that were never intended for production. He ordered 1969 Camaros that used a derivative of GM's 427ci, all-aluminum ZL1 race engine, and bought enough of them to make them legal to compete as production cars in NHRA and AHRA drag racing. There were 69 ZL1 Camaros built in 1969, and Chevrolet is building the same number for 2012. The new COPO is a pure race car, not able to be licensed for the street, and is available with three different engines: a 427 that's naturally aspirated, a 327 with a 2.9L Whipple blower, and a 327 with a 4.0L Whipple blower. Buyers have the option to own all three engines, all stamped with the serial number of their car. The COPO is gutted of all the street equipment, has a rollcage, and the original independent rear suspension has been replaced with a Strange 9-inch rearend with 4.29 gears and a spool. Other aftermarket parts include Strange struts and brakes, and ATI Powerglide transmission, an Aeromotive fuel system, Bogart wheels with COPO engraving, and Hoosier 30x9.00-15 radial slicks and skinny front drag tires.

2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 vs. Mark Stielow's Red Devil '69 Camaro - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 13
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, David Freiburger meets up with Pro Touring legend Mark Stielow to compare old and new Camaros head to head. Mark Stielow is a GM engineer with a long history of building vintage, street-worthy Camaros with amazing handling prowess. His latest is the Red Devil, a '69 model powered by a 427ci, supercharged LS9 that tops 750 hp and 800 lb-ft. It runs a six-speed trans and complete suspension from Detroit Speed, and has won a number of shootouts with similarly built Pro Touring cars. But can his modified muscle car outrun the technology of the Magnetic Ride suspension on the new, 580hp, 2012 Camaro ZL1? We head to GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan to find out.
