Just 69 of the “ultimate Camaros” were produced for the model year: 47 with four-speed manual transmissions and 22 with automatics. Performance was formidable. High Performance Cars magazine tested a ZL1 Camaro and recorded a 13.16 quarter-mile at 110.21-mph. “The ZL1 camshaft was definitely smooth enough to drive on the street, at least in warm weather, though the idle was quite rough. One sober note was the rich-jetted 850-cubic feet per minute Holley carb gave only 5 to 7 miles per gallon in normal street driving. But when you jump on that loud pedal, all is forgiven” One detriment, the magazine went on to point out, and the reason why most ZL1’s ended up in the possession of professional racers, was the price. The test ZL1 from Berger Chevrolet stickered out at a $7,800 price – or roughly twice the price of an L78-equipped SS 396 Coupe. The engine package alone cost $4,160. Reputedly, 50 cars went to dealer Fred Gibb and drag racer Dick Harrell of Kansas City with the other 19 going to various Chevrolet dealers throughout the United States.

High performance COPO cars pretty much went the way of the dinosaur in 1970 when GM dropped its 400-cid V-8 rule for 1970. This allowed Chevrolet to install the LS6 454-cid, 450-hp V-8 in its mid-size Chevelle as optional equipment. It was just a simple tick on the options list that any customer was able to order from their friendly Chevrolet dealer. And, with that COPO, Camaros were relegated to the history books.
