The 1969 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is number four of 69 ZL1 models built in the original production run. The ZL1 package awarded Chevy’s Mustang competitor a 427 cubic inch V8 engine with 425 horsepower, and aluminum block and heads and power disc brakes.
The auction house states in the consignment document that this car was originally delivered to Hauser Chevrolet in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, decades ago and it also features a Turbo 400 automatic transmission. Additionally, the Camaro ZL1 sports its original Positraction rear end.
We don’t know how many miles are on this original piece of Chevrolet factory muscle, but the car looks minty fresh in many respects. The exterior is finished in Cortez Silver and a standard black interior is present inside. However, the car was completely restored under the close watch of Bill Glowacki, but we can’t find any additional information on the car’s backstory or what the “comprehensive” restoration job included.
But there’s no denying the car’s significance and Mecum doesn’t name “main attraction” cars for no reason. The 1969 Camaro ZL1 will head to the auction block in just a few days when Mecum Chicago opens on October 25. We should expect well over six figures for this car, as previous examples have sold for $300,000 and more.
