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

Original motor had been replaced with a bored out 350 1984 Corvette motor (383 stroker). The motor was rebuilt in 2002 with all new values, cam shaft, rockers, manifold, headers, fuel pump, water, etc.. The original engine boring and build was completed by the Performance Clinic in Beavercreek, Ohio. During the restoration in 2006, the motor was fully removed and all seals, value covers, and alternator were replaced. Shortly after the motor was dyno’d and installed a new carb to improve performance. All receipts for work and detailed part listing is available.
During restoration the body was taken down to the frame. Both front fenders were replaced entirely along with the rear deck. Left quarter panel had to be reskinned and both rocker panels were also replaced. All other body parts were in good shape with minimal rust and no bondo. Body is straight and not a single wave. There is a dent in the driver side rear wheel well from where I took a corner and divot too fast and the wheel hit the body.
