Chevrolet needed the 1969 Camaro ZL1 more than buyers needed it. In order to qualify for NHRA stock car rules, 50 examples of a particular vehicle with proper features needed to be produced for the public.
The result was only 69 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1s built as a one model year option. And one has surfaced on eBay for sale.
20 1969 Camaro ZL1s went into organized drag racing, where they consistently laid down 10-second times, and set several Super Stock world records. This particular ZL1 is number 53 of 69, and one of four ordered in factory Dover White. Amping the rarity factor further is the fact it was equipped with the M22 Rockcrusher four-speed manual transmission, the only Dover White example in existence.
The vehicle has been maintained and cared for over its entire life and, pairing that with its enormous exclusivity factor, the price is pretty. Pretty high, that is. This 1969 Camaro ZL1 is commanding $499,500 on eBay.
Pull out your check books, because this seems worth every single penny.
