The Model: By 1969, Camaro had already become a legend in the performance world. While Chevrolet had obviously put a bit of a dent in the sale of the rival Ford Mustang, there were other goals to be reached, like the fastest production car ever seen. For 1969, a very special package was offered to Camaro buyers with the need for speed. A real live 427 cubic inch V8 could be ordered for the Camaro, but not just anyone could walk into a Chevrolet dealership and buy on off the showroom floor. All orders for these cars had to be ordered through a fleet process or by a Corporate Office Production Order, “COPO” for short. The most popular of the Camaro “COPO” orders was package 9561, which included all the right elements. Combined with high-­impact colors, ultimate performance, little or no emissions equipment, these were as close to a factory drag car as could be.

The Car: Finding an authentic “COPO” is nearly impossible, and when found, their values usually dictate they are kept tucked away in a private collection or museum. Not so with this beauty for it can be taken out and enjoyed. Finished in Bolero Red, with black vinyl bucket seats, power comes from a built 1968 era L71 Corvette 427 block with aluminum intake, 4­-barrel carb and backed with period correct 4­speed transmission. Nothing was overlooked from the front chin spoiler to the ZL2 air­-induction hood, heavy duty suspension, steel wheels with hubcaps, it promises to deliver the thrill you seek, and the rumble of the engine through the headers exhaust system will draw plenty of attention. Since its build was completed about 10 years ago, this Camaro has been kept in climate controlled storage, and yes, on a few occasions it has been taken out for a chance to strut its stuff.
