1969 Chevrolet Camaro 425 V-8 HP engine


Description


L72 427/425 V-8 HP engine
Aluminum intake manifold
Holley 4-barrel carburetor
M22 4-speed transmission
ZL2 ducted hood
Harrison HD 4 core radiator
High Performance 12 bolt rear axle
4.10 Positraction
5-leaf rear springs
Heat treated ring and pinion
Power brakes with front discs
Cortez Silver with Black interior
Front and rear spoilers
That would mean that the L78 396/375 HP or aluminum-headed L89 were the most powerful engines that could normally be ordered. Potent engines to be sure, but if there are more powerful alternatives, enthusiasts and racers will want them. The engine in question was in fact the L72 427/425 HP version, which was available in the full-size Chevrolets and in Corvettes. So Don Yenko and other dealers looking for more performance found a loophole in the system. By ordering 1969 Camaros through the fleet ordering system, known as the Central Office Production Order, they were able to specify otherwise unavailable options if the cars were ordered in large quantities. Municipalities and companies would order more boring fleet cars and trucks with options specialized for their purpose. Yenko did the same thing, ordering 427s in Camaros, along with a host of high-performance upgrades. While the spirit of the rules were clearly violated, this subterfuge proved to be effective. In addition to the L72 427/425
