Classic Car- Chevrolet Z-16
In 1965, the muscle car market was beginning to heat-up and Chevrolet needed to prove that they still had what was needed to compete. So Chevrolet unleashed a limited edition 396, known as the Chevrolet Z-16 package.
Chevrolet released the Z-16’s to give the public a preview of what was to come the following year.
The 201 examples that were produced featured 375 horsepower, highly-modified suspension and power-assisted steering, and anti-roll bars in the front and rear. The gear ratio on the Muncie 4-speed transmission was raised from 3.31 to 4.56. The 283 and 327 cubic-inch engines were still available. The base engine still produced 195 horsepower while the top of the line Z79 327 was now producing 350 horsepower.”
