Default Degnan Chevrolet Philadelphia PA - ZL1

'
Anyone know anything of the ZL1 advertised by Degnan Chevrolet Philadelphia PA as Sept. '70 ad below?
Since posting the ad in the old newspaper thread, I found a few pics also cars from Degnan Chevy on the interweb but nothing ZL1 related?
Whether sold by Degnan or dealer traded, does anyone know anything of this situation and/or which car the advertised ZL1 maybe was?

Likely suspects are ex-Gibb cars re-distributed to dealers in PA. Heading the list would be the two cars Penske Chev ended up with. Not known if they were the selling dealer.

#17 N609462 Cortez Silver…still exists
#44 N618396 Fathom Green…unknown

Ammon R. Smith had two; definitely sold one.

#20 N609599 Cortez Silver… unknown, last reg was in the Pacific NW

Sutliff Chev

#35 N612763 Fathom Green…still exists

Two were sent to MD

#34 N610899 Fathom Green…still exists, for sale
#40 N615198 Fathom Green…still exists

Still leaves 5 Gibb cars with unknown re-distribution.

Thanks for chiming in William also listing likely suspects!
Has the possibility Degnan Chev delivered any ZL1's ever come up before?

Nope, never heard of them. But there were other dealers. Jon Mello sent me an ad from the May 17, 1969 Competition Press. It was for Fairway Chev-Buick in Reedsport OR. The ad was for both COPOs and stated they were &quot;Taking orders for June delivery.&quot;

Never heard of them either; not known if they had any of the cars.
