1969 COPO Camaro

1969-COPO-Camaro

What a nice coincidence for muscle car sellers. Just when the values of high end muscle cars are going up some of the older Baby Boomers are starting to sell off their collections. If you buy a pedigree muscle car now it looks like a pretty good bet you are getting in on the low side of what prices on these cars will be in the near future. Case in point: just this week Classic Car Marketing out of Southern California listed a “real deal”¬†1969 COPO Camaro¬†for a client of theirs. Classic Car Marketing tells us that this car is in No. 1 restored condition.

This car has been SOLD.

Fully Restored and Fully Documented as per the owner. The COPO Camaro was what Chevrolet built to get a High Performance 427 Cubic Inch 425 Horsepower Big Block Mark IV engine into an assembly line factory Camaro. These COPO Camaros were limited production and did not show up in the official factory or showroom brochures. Most of us know of the 1969 COPO and Yenko Camaros, but the story is much more interesting. These COPO Camaros were Special High Performance Units. A COPO Camaro was a special ordered high performance unit with the L72 427 motor. This one was ordered with power disc brakes, a 4.10 positraction rear end with heat treated axle shafts, (to avoid breakage), a Z 28 front anti-sway bar and a heavy duty 4-core radiator. This one has the M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed transmission. The block had been replaced back in the ’70s, says the broker. They say it has a GM replacement block, casting code and date stamp are correct for the car.
