Since the COPO article on the the CRG site, I have heard from a few people wondering why the Queen City ZL1 wasn't listed. Not listed because there is no hard evidence they had one. Queen City was less than 10 miles from the Norwood plant. The returned cars sat there for months yet they were not on the re-distribution list for returned cars. Possible they could have acquired one later on via dealer trade, but odd they never advertised it anywhere.

Always open to new ZL1 history.

The original owner of the l89 said there was a zl1 on the lot when his mother bought him the camaro...he had his choice and chose the l89, he said it was due to color and he didnt want to make his mother spend that much more, not too many 17 yr old kids would have done that . It was Jan 70 so maybe it was another dealers car,no idea. But they had one . My recollection it was green or white. I didnt pay much attention to that detail. It could have been a non original car w a dealer zl1 I suppose as well..I'll try and see if time healed his pain of selling the car and will ask him if he answers the phone .

i can assure any doubters chucks L-89 is 1000% real. Queen city sold at least 2 L- 89 camaros As for the queen city ZL-1 i can assure everyone one it was on the showroom for at least 6 months . Verified by my interviews with living queen city employees. Thats the most info i will let out on the ZL-1.

I mean L89 cowl is the only other top end like the zl1, not to mean just this particular l89 cowl car
