The very first episode of Muscle Car of the Week features the very first 1969 Camaro with option package ZL-1, complete with the original all-aluminum 427 V8 and an amazing history. This is the first of 69 ZL-1 Camaros ever built, and was delivered to Fred Gibb Chevrolet on New Year’s Eve in 1968. Gibb and his crew transformed the car into a drag race record setter, and drove the car in races all over the country. In this video, Charley Lillard takes us through the car and tells us the stories about the original car and its restoration. Today there are less than 40 original ZL-1 Camaros still in existence.
