IN 1969 the ZL-1 was offered to mr ys-702. Either gabbard or ryan referred to the camaro as the ALL ALUMINUM JOB. Multiple gm employees tried to use their 25% discount to try to buy it . Nothing doing with that

I have to say, I have seen some L89s with non cowl hoods, this is a first for me to see one on an L89. Always thought that was odd, you pay up for better heads, yet don't get the hood that forces the air down its throat. Maybe all these L89s came out before the hood was offered. Super cool car, great blue color + black interior + M22.

The ZL2 hood was part of the COPO 9560 & 9561 and mandatory option on Pace cars, but an option on Z28 & SS.

BTW the ZL2 hood is lighter than the SS hood.

The ZL2 hood first became available "after Dec 68"

http://www.camaros.org/pdf/options.pdf

The L89 option first became available Dec. 1967 (1968 model year) so between September 1968 and December 1968 any L89 Camaros would have a flat hood as the ZL2 option was not yet available.

SS Hood

I do not agree
I have seen the ZL2 Hood on the 12B -68 1969 Z/28 and they have old pictures of the car from the early 70's with the ZL2 Hood.
The hole for the ZL2 Wires can be located elsewhere on the Firewall and not just at the Fuse Block
But those are my opinions

The earliest known documented 1969 Camaros built with ZL2 are a Van Nuys Z/28 final-assembled December 27, 1968, and ZL-1 #1 final-assembled at Norwood December 30, 1968.
