Super uber-rare ZL1.

A great piece of history!

I always wondered how these supercars ended up with the crapo wheels and hubcaps, but I'm sure they were meant to be replaced with racing wheels at the time...

i totally hear u ...but i guess for some people they really want the bragging rights or maybe it has some sentimental value....but considering the time period that car has some serious HP i think thats a very very impresive peice of machinery

I think we need ot understand that a car like this goes beyond juist a car... it's an investment first and foremost, but also a unique piece of history...

MOney invested in rare classic cars over the last 10 years have given some of the greatest returns of any investment over that time frame.

I agree it is more of a time capsule of motorsport really, it was the first of so many things for chevrolet. In the eyes of a car buff and automotive historian, there is no finer example of Muscle Car than the ZL-1.

The price, I suppose its worth what people are willing to pay for it. Not having looked or in the market for something like this, I wouldn't have guessed anywhere near 850k as a going rate. Then again I'm no Barrett Jackson.

Well that car is one of 7 ever made. Two of them had automatics, and the other five were manuals.


Whats shocking to me is that this car is 20 minutes drive from our shop.

If I remember right, the last time a 1969 Corvette ZL-1 sold, it sold for $3 million.... I think this was 10 years ago or so.

It is one of TWO built, and, I believe the only one known to still exist. (Imagine finding the other in a barn somewhere! :eek: )
