14. 1969 ZL1
The 60s were a trying time for GM as the company went off in various new directions. The ZL1 was a limited edition Corvette known for its powerful engine and lightweight body. The car which bored the Stingray distinction was a far cry from the Corvettes before it. The cultivated body and the rally rims were just a small indication of what was in store. Everything about the Stingray ZL1 was unique, and it offered a wonderful blend of performance and styling to make it show up on every Corvette owner’s wish list.
The ZL1 Stingray is very rare, and if you find one you’re going to pay a pretty penny. This car was made at a time when GM had no competition clause in full effect. As such, the ZL1 was produced in very limited numbers and is by far one of the rarest C3 Corvette models around.
