The 1969 Chevrolet Challenge: Camaro ZL1 vs. L88 Corvette

The soul of Chevrolet has been always divided between its two most famous and appreciated cars: Camaro and Corvette. In this video you can see a drag race in which two different models of the same year, the sweet 1969, are fighting to be the best Chevrolet of the late sixties.

On the left lane a classic white ZL1 Camaro, with its all aluminium engine and a compression ratio of 12:1. The power of this incredible engine was about 430 hp and it was a 427 V8 with a volume of 7.0 Litres, originally built for the Chaparral. This car, with the acronym COPO (Central Office Production Orders) and numbered 9561 was created appositely to compete in the drag races and for this reason it was produced in only 69 examples, the minimum to get the license for the NHRA Super Stock.

In the right lane there is a grey Corvette C3 L88 427 Big Block, with his 7.0 Litres V8 engine with a power of 430 hp. The compression ratio of this Corvette is 12.5 to 1. Chevrolet produced only 116 L88 427 in the 1969.

The drag race was held in the Mid Michigan Motorplex in front of a big crowd that was anxious to see which car will win but, must of all, how many time the two cars will take to drive the quarter mile.
