Perhaps the most balanced engine for the 1969 model year was the L89 big-block, rated at 435 horsepower. Chevrolet started out with a four-bolt main, cast iron block, then engineers crafted a pair of high flow, lightweight, aluminum heads to top it off. Resting between the heads was an aluminum tri-power intake manifold with three Holley Model 2300 carburetors. While the L89 was rated at the same 435 horsepower as the iron-head L71, the L89 was known to produce slightly more power thanks to its larger exhaust valves (1.84 inches versus 1.72 inches). It also weighed about 75 pounds less, thus reducing unnecessary weight from the front end and helping handling characteristics. The option didn’t come cheap, it required an additional $832. A cast iron transistorized distributor was standard for all L71 and L89 engines. It has the radio block off plate and the 6500 redline tach, someone added an antenna after the car was repainted. It does have a 7 leaf rear spring and a rear sway bar. It does NOT have power steering or power brakes and I do NOT have the factory smog pump. It has a 5 blade clutch fan. All the gauges work fine. It has the correct 4 bolt mains 512 casting block with the correct 842 casting closed chamber aluminum heads.

The interior is like new. The paint job is nice, but NOT showroom quality. The underneath is nice with no rust.

Unfortunately, this is NOT a numbers matching block and I do NOT have the tank sticker. The car was originally purchased from Rosenthal Chevrolet in Virginia and the block was a factory replacement warranty block that was installed by Rosenthal Chevrolet.

There is a new fuel tank and unfortunately, the person that replaced it did not know the value of the sticker. If I did have it, I would be asking a whole lot more for the car. If you have any particular pictures you would like to see, just send me a message and I will get you whatever you need. I will be constantly adding more pictures soon. This is your opportunity to have an extremely rare car at a substantial discount. BTW, I bought a 2019 Z06.

For looking.
