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
This beautiful 68 Camaro has been owned by the current owner for the last 45 years. When he purchased the Z-28 it in 1975, the motor/transmission and original rear end were gone. The ambition to redo the car was there but the money and time were never there all at the right time and as the years went on he continued to store it until finally time, money and ambition all met at once.
