    it is a very rare ZL-1. The engine is an all aluminum 427(factory!). They go for that much at Barret Jackson.

    I just noticed it didn't even make reserve at $850K :eek1:

    that is one badass Camaro, but I think I could find better uses for that $850K.

    Ain't no way a RESTORATION is worth that much . Add one piece that wasn't on the car when it came off the lot , even if its got the "correct" date code , and it isn't the original part .

    The damn investors ruined the car hobby . :(

    People can take these and shove them up their &(())*&%%^***& :mad:

    I would rather take a plain jane car , hop it up , and enjoy it .....by DRIVING it:wink1: .

    Hey , I am doing that with my 70 malibu :D

    ZL-1 is the all aluminum engine. I believe there were only 2 made. Don't quote me on that though.

    It don't surprise me about the price. In the July '05 (I think) issue of Hot Rod, there's an article of a guy who has a $2M Hemi Cuda and it is also rare, too. Turns out someone offered him $2M for it and he turned it down. The article shows other rare Mopar musclecars he has. :eek1:

    69 ZL-1 Camaros

    big block madness...

    I remember seeing a guy at tractor pulls in Vermont back in the 80's who ran an all aluminum ZL-1 motor he got from a 69 Camaro he bought brand new,but had crashed it in a drag race..I knew several people who follwed him from one pull to the next,hounding him to sell them that motor before he blew it up!--all he kept saying is "Its NOT for sale"!!...a few guys offered over 10 grand for it,but he still refused to sell.. :eek1:

    I heard about 60 1969 Camaro's were produced with ZL-1's..not too many left today I'd wager...I dont know what was so special about them,other than their rarity.. :confused: :crazy: --nothing any other all aluminum motor could match or beat,like a Rodeck,Merlin,etc..

    If I had ANY car,like my 69 GTO,and someone offered me 2 million for it,I'd gladly sell it!..its only a freaking car for crissakes!- :screwy: -I'd buy a nice house in a warm state,buy a similar looking car ,like a Lemans the same year,(for MUCH less money that a goat)-DRIVE it,enjoy life,and NEVER work another day in my life! :bow: :crazy: ...

    i will make you all sick. i have a person in my town with a camaro ZL-1 and it is not a normal one. it is a baldwin motions car. from what i have been told it is more rare than a yanko done up car. he fires it up every year or so and runs it around the block. :p:

    If the car's real, he can ask ( and probably get ) whatever he wants for it.

    I think the investors did a great thing for the hobby.. because of their willingness to plunk down obscene money, a whole aftermarket industry was created to help rebuild these things.. it made rebuilding my 69 a whole lot cheaper and easier, not to mention create jobs for thousands of people.

    capitalism at it's finest.

    Well, the fact that the aluminum motors came from the factory was pretty special. that's what gave the aftermarket the incentive to make their own, and of course, improve things.

    Yenko was a dealership that modified the cars. Just like Calloway would modify corvettes.
