If you’re seeking a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ZL-1 convertible, this is it. You won’t be able to find another factory-built one. It’s also one of only two 1969 ZL-1 Corvettes produced.

Chevrolet didn’t intend to sell the car to the public–it was developed as an “FIA/NHRA homologation experiment.” Nevertheless, it was sold to a retail customer in 1968.

The Corvette has the factory-correct, date-coded ZL-1 427-cubic-inch V8. It’s a lightweight version of the L88 power plant. According to the seller, it has “an all-aluminum block, stouter connecting rods, a redesigned crankshaft, pistons, larger exhaust valves, a high-lift camshaft, and an upgraded ‘open chamber’ aluminum cylinder-head design with four additional head bolts.”

However, the Vette did lack a few things, such as a “radio, heater, air conditioning, power windows, and power steering. Even the fan shroud was omitted because it interrupted airflow.” But, who cares? This is a one-of-a-kind car, with a wealth of documents reinforcing its place among the most storied Corvettes of all time.

Find this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ZL-1 for bid from RM Sotheby’s, with an expected winning bid of $2,600,000-$3,000,000.
