1988-1992 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE: The Original Factory Racer

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

Most modified Camaros fit into the same general mold: crate motor, chrome, and wheels. You can easily build a clean, quick F-body that keeps its traditional look and adds modern conveniences. Or you can go absolutely crazy and build a race car for the street like this 1968 Camaro. With that blower sitting atop that motor, those giant tires, and an exhaust note that lets everyone know that hasnt seen you yet, know you have arrived, theres no point to subtle paint. Bright yellow with a correct black bumblebee stripe keeps the link to the past alive, and I like that the rear wheel arches havent been drastically modified to handle the massive meats out back. A ducktail spoiler reinforces the fact that this car is all about performance but the blacked-out rear panel is a cool custom touch that ties it together with the blacked-out grille quite nicely. With that much engine up front, a hood was pointless, but they did keep all the original trim and chrome, including the bumpers and 350 badges on the front fenders, which are still technically correct. If youre looking for a race car for the street, this is what it looks like inside. Twin race buckets with 5-point harnesses strap you in like youre aboard a Saturn V rocket, and theres a 10-point cage surrounding you. The original dash is in there somewhere, now augmented with Auto Meter instruments and a tach with shift light on the column. A B&M shifter sits on the tunnel right where its easy to grab, along with the switch panel for the accessories and the Deadenbear delay box. But its not all sharp edges and growling horsepower, because theres a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash. The back seat is gone, replaced by beautifully fabricated aluminum tubs for the rear tires, and what space remains in the trunk is filled with fuel cell and battery. The key to performance is power-to-weight ratio, and the 383 cubic inch small block delivers in a very big way. Topped by a Weiand blower forcing boost into the stout engine, it cackles, barks and idles like a full-race piece. Inside theres an Eagle forged rotating assembly with 10:1 JE pistons and a massive Comp Cams camshaft, all fed by a set of Dart heads and a pair of Barry Grant blower carbs. A MSD crank-trigger ignition system is reliable under fire, and cooling chores are handled by a BeCool radiator. A Phoenix-built TH400 3-speed automatic with a 3800 RPM stall converter drives a narrowed Chris Alston 9-inch Ford rear with 4.11 gears on a Strange third member. In fact, Chris Alston Fabrication supplied the entire back half of the car, including the ladder bars with coilovers, so it hooks hard. Wilwood disc brakes at all four corners are for speed management at the big end and live behind classic Weld Pro-Star wheel with 165R15 radials up front and 18.5x31x15 Mickey Thompson Sportsman meats out back. Scary fast and built right, this is the kind of car thats content to idle through the parking lot just as long as it gets a few moments off the leash now and then. The only question is, are you man enough to handle it? Call today!
