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
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
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!
1969 Camaro ZL1 on Dyno
~~~Please Read Description~~~
I UPLOADED THIS FOR MY DAD, I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE CAR. SORRY.
Engine ZL1 427 all aluminum, pro top line head, comp cam, 1000 cfm holley,
5 speed tremec, 411 gear.
TWO PULLS: 1st pull inconclusive. Tires spun on rollers. 2nd pull,
tightened ties some more. Pull was better, but tires still spun (that's
the blue smoke)
I guess stock poly glass doesn't work with all this power. Will try again
with slicks on.

Test Driving 1967 Chevrolet Camaro 502 Big-Block Restomod - Fast Lane Classic Cars
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought you'd like a look at this awesome 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. This beast is powered by
a ZZ502 Big-block crate engine, that's pushing out 502 HP and 567 LbFt of
Torque. All that power is being funneled through a Centerforce clutch, to
a Borg Warner T10 four-speed, and then back to a 12 bolt rear with 3.55
gears. This car has all the performance you need and then some. It's also a
beautifully restored car, from the ultra slick black exterior with SS trim,
to the completely restored houndstooth interior. It's also equipped with
front disc brakes, Eagle Alloy wheels, and BF Goodrich ZR speed rated
tires. This car goes, turns, and stops amazingly well. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for taking a look!
