Sorry Dango,In 1969 the L72 and ZL1 engines were installed from the factory under the COPO program. There were approx. 800-1000 of the L72 Camaro's produced,and 69 with the ZL1 engines.

In 1968,Don Yenko and other dealers were ordering SS 396 Camaro's and installing the 427's into the cars,but when GM found out that those cars couldn't drag race in the factory classes,they began the COPO program in 1969.

The 1991/92 GMC Syclone & Typhoon AWD 4.3 liter Turbo's were really fast for their time period. Very few factory cars could run with them.

the COPO program was one of those unadvertised options, that even some salesmen didn't even know about.

But they were still factory installed engines, and more than 50 cars were produced with them.

yes, they were factory produced vehicles, without a doubt.

the exact number is still in question as to how many were produced. some sources state about 1000, and some sources say less than 500 were made.

then factor in the ZL-1 427, (the all aluminum big block as an option of over $4700!) of which they think about 69 of those were factory produced. and at the same time, the ZL-1 was available from the Chevy parts desk as a replacement engine. but at over $4700, not a lot of the engines were sold either.

the ZL-1 was essentially the L-88 except with an aluminum block and heads. one source says 69 Camaro,s and 2 Corvette's left the factory with the ZL-1 engines. how many were sold over the Chevy parts counters, well?
