With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.

1969 ZL1 CAMARO

The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.

Classic Car Overview

When the Camaro debuted, a General Motors corporate edict prevented it from carrying a V8 engine larger than 400 cubic inches.  This put the Camaro at a disadvantage to the Ford Mustang, Plymouth Barracuda and the Dodge Dart since neither Ford nor Plymouth/Dodge had such a limit.  Dealership owner and racer Don Yenko knew there was a market for a more powerful Camaro and found ways around the GM limit.  The Yenko Super Camaro was a modified Chevrolet Camaro prepared by Yenko Chevrolet with the originally equipped 396 engines swapped for a thundering 427 cubic inch block.  Topped with an aluminum intake manifold and Holley carburetor the Yenko Camaro was rumored to have over an astounding 450 horsepower.  To stand apart from the rest of the pack the Yenko Camaro sported a twin-snorkel fiberglass hood and Pontiac Rallye II steel wheels with special Yenko center caps.  Front and rear spoilers, Yenko emblems and Super Sport striping complete the all-business look.  This Yenko tribute Camaro had a frame-off professional rotisserie restoration just completed this year and is in impeccable condition.  The super straight body is covered in Corvette Bronze paint and is unbelievably shiny.  Further enhancing the great looks of this immaculate Camaro is the Rally Sport hideaway headlight system.  All new chrome trim, weather stripping and glass complement the flawless exterior.  The interior is all new with a Yenko specific 140-mph speedometer and perfect black upholstery adorning the bucket seats and the rest of the cabin.  By anyone’s estimation, a 1968 Yenko Super Camaro is a rare car.  Roughly 64 were built by Yenko Chevrolet and it’s believed that less than a third survive today.  Recently an original Yenko Camaro crossed an auction block selling for $600,000 to become the most expensive Yenko Camaro ever sold at auction.  Here is your opportunity to own one of the most sought-after Camaros ever produced at a fraction of the cost of an original!
