Actually 13.

Of them, only #65 has an Ohio connection. Ordered and sold by Lavery Chev, Alliance OH.

Two of the 10 FG Gibb cars, #36 [4-speed] and #45 [auto] are among the group that did not have a dealer re-assignment. Cars unsold as of May '69 were returned to Norwood and eventually re-invoiced to other dealers. It has been long presumed that Gibb returned 37 cars. If one of these two was returned, then that story changes.

It has been stated that QC had the ZL1 for at least 6 months. A Gibb ZL1 would have had a dealer invoice of around $5800, far more than any other Camaro in their inventory. They would have had significant interest in moving it and would have run newspaper ads for it ala Huebner. To date, no QC ad for a ZL1 Camaro has turned up.

There were typos in those ads for sure, and that dealer added options on cars maybe the 427 w wire wheel covers wasn't a iron motor 427 which everyone assumes because it doesn't say zl1 in the ad .

Default Off the transport....

....break in the engine, changed out the tires then it snowed. They yank the L89 for a 427! Oh my. BWAG tells me it laid on the parts room floor for months and parts were scavenged as needed. He said the alum. heads were problematic...

Let's find those ads and add QC to the history of the ZL1 Camaro.

I knew a guy that had a ZL1 that ran at Edgewater but I can't remember his name off hand. I think he traded it for another 69..It probably came from OC.

We trolled for ZL1 ads a few years back in the Old Newspaper Ads thread, some on this linked page also others before/after...
https://www.yenko.net/forum/showthre...135780&page=32

The Degnan ZL1 was a new one then which was Bob Litchko's Schmidt's Beer sponsored car but VIN still unknown as this thread...
