Read about this 1969 Monaco Orange Factory ZL1, a rare breed indeed. Only two were produced with that identification, which consisted of a derivative of the all-new aluminum CanAm racing 427 block with L88 components and was delivered street-legal straight from Chevrolet.
In 1970, only a handful of people were aware of the rare aluminum 427 ZL1. You will want to learn about the history of this rare Corvette in the July 2022 issue of Vette Vues.
And for current Corvette history, you will want to check out the details of the 2023 C8 Corvette ZO6 Indy Pace Car. We have lots of great photos.
