It boggles our mind that stuff like this just keeps bubbling up from the ground. You are looking at a load of amazing parts that have seemingly never been used in any way shape or form and are waiting for a new owner to get them all together. The parts? Oh, they’re good. How about a factory ZL1 aluminum block that someone bought over the counter at a dealer and never used. The correct intake manifold, a set of aluminum heads from 1970 that have never been assembled or run, the right connecting rods, and even the correct high compression pistons to make this whole program work. The price for all this stuff is $50,000 and we’ll just got ahead and let you find all of those parts and then price them out. Do that before you freak over the price.
Who would want this stuff? Someone with a ZL1 Camaro that does not have the right engine in it or does not have an engine in it at all. The block has not been stamped outside of the area down by the oil filter boss. That stamping apparently denotes this as a replacement block. We’re wondering who bought this stuff and what their plan was with it. Did they want to build a clone ZL1? As these parts were off the charts hardcore for their era, maybe the person was going to go racing with this stuff. It’s all speculation but we do know that none of it was ever used to so much idle a car onto a trailer or around a parking lot.
How much more of this stuff is out there? We keep hearing about how few blocks and heads and etc that these companies made back in the day when it comes to exotica like this and yet they continue to show up and command top dollar. Pretty astounding if you ask us.
