STRONG 454, 4 SPEED, PS, PB, FRONT DISCS, GREAT PAINT, SUPER STRAIGHT AND CLEAN!
The COPO Camaro is a true legend where back channels for the largest V8 around to be placed into a Camaro that completely stripped of anything that didn't help it go faster. What resulted is arguably the fastest, nastiest, and most treasured muscle car of them all. But of you can't make the six-figure investment or get nervous driving a car worth more than a house, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO tribute it a great way to feel the rush of the best all-out Chevy muscle machine.
Code 72 Hugger Orange is this car's original color, and it has been restored to the standards that would make a half-million dollar COPO blush. The paint is about a mile deep, and the sheetmetal lines up so well that you can watch the light move from panel to panel without distortion. Modern paints give this iconic orange a depth and vividness that it never had in '69, and the plain-Jane COPO look works especially well with the sizzling hue. No SS badges, no RS headlights, just a base Camaro coupe right down to the painted steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps. These were cars that let its special motor do all its talking, and that's kind of substance is something we all love to see. Even the cowl induction hood is doing its part to feed the beast within. The front chin spoiler, D80 rear spoiler and mirror-like chrome bumpers are pieces that you don't necessarily need for speed, but on a well-sorted coupe like this, they sure do make going fast look good.
The interior has the same nicely restored and down-to-business focus. The bucket seats look and feel fresh, and the same goes for the headliner, door panel, and dash pad. This sea of black is broken up by your two new favorite toys – the three spoke sports steering wheel and Hurst performance shifter. Everything is finished to an extremely high level, but your only real concession is a defrost/heater. That's how a true COPO is supposed to be. It even correctly saves weight as a radio delete model. But that doesn't worry you if this is your kind of car, because you already know the best soundtrack will be coming from the dual exhaust.
The COPO's calling card was the thundering L72 427, but this big block is actually the even larger 454 cubic-inch V8. The presentation is amazing with the correct air cleaner to mate with the cowl hood, shiny valve covers, Chevy orange block, and tidy wires & hoses. But beyond just looking great this monster motor has performance components such as a Holley dual-feed four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise performance intake, and long tube headers. It thunders to life with the kind of authority that makes lesser cars quiver. But for those who didn't already know not to mess with you, there is the exceptional control of a four-speed manual transmission that feeds a stout 12-bolt Positraction rear end. Plus, no matter if you're blasting down the boulevard or just cruising the cruise-in, great driving features like power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTS tires are always welcomed.
With only 14,371 miles on the whole build, and careful maintenance (have you seen all the reproduced factory markings or how clean the undercarriage is?!) you are looking at the perfect gateway to sampling a legend. Call today!!!
