1969 ZL-1 CAMARO

The COPO 9560 used an all-aluminum 427 cu in (7.0 L) big-block called the ZL-1 and was designed specifically for drag racing. The package was conceived by drag racer Dick Harrell, and ordered through Fred Gibb Chevrolet in La Harpe, IL, with the intention of entering NHRA Super Stock drag racing. Just 69 ZL-1 Camaros were produced, the engine alone cost over US$4,000 — nearly twice that of a base coupe with a V8. Though rated at 430 hp (321 kW) gross, the ZL-1 made 376 SAE Net HP in its "as installed" state. With Exhaust changes and some tuning, the horsepower jumped to over 500 hp. The ZL1 engines were hand assembled in a process that took 16 hours each, in a room that Corvette Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov described as "surgically clean". All ZL1 engines were manufactured at the Tonawanda Assembly Plant before being installed in Corvettes, Camaros, or sold over the counter to racers. This car came with a 5yr/50,000 bumper to bumper warranty.

134233 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/kl3k7fa Regardless if you're into blue chip investments or brutal street machines, the first whisper of "COPO" should get your attention. The subject of a frame up restoration, this 1969 Camaro COPE tribute not only nails the plain wrapper/huge motor aesthetic - it does so with a barrage of period correct parts that will leave most enthusiasts scratching their heads at whether or not the car is the real deal. While GM didn't offer "High Impact" colors in the Mopar sense, few colors have a higher impact than code 76 Daytona Yellow. According to the trim tag, the car wore this color when it left the Norwood, Ohio assembly line in November of 1968 and continues to display it proudly today. The angular '69 body lines look crisp, each panel is straight and overall fitment is significantly above average. Lift the hood of this Chevrolet to find a 427ci V8 dressed in full factory décor. The centerpiece is a cast iron GM block which wears fresh orange paint and a 3963512 casting number. Topped with factory heads, a Winters intake, a Holley four-barrel, and cast iron Exhaust manifolds, the engine looks and feels showroom new. From the GM hoses to the reproduction R59 battery, every detail is equally nice. Underneath the car, a Muncie four-speed offers full control of the big block. Power meets the pavement through a GM 12-bolt rear packed with 4.10 gears and a limited slip. From the tagged "HW" coil springs up front to the freshly painted leaf springs out back, the suspension remains in stock form, aided by manual steering and power assisted brakes with discs up front and drums in the rear. The chassis meets the road through Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around body-matched steel wheels. Most COPO buyers weren't interested in interior gadgetry so nearly all of the original cars left the factory with a standard code 711 black interior. This COPO tribute stays true that idea. Additions like a correct AC 140 mph speedometer and floor-mounted Stewart Warner tach add to the cars performance theme while rebuilt seats and all new soft pieces give the car a fresh new look. With a factory-dressed 427, a Muncie four-speed, and a color that makes no bones about what the car was built for, this Camaro is a great example of COPO tribute. From the paint daubs on the chassis to the Yenko-branded spoiler, no detail was too small to overlook, resulting in a show-ready Camaro ready to inspire grins and knowing nods everywhere it goes. Are you ready to rumble with one of the most brutal factory Camaros ever built? Here's your chance to do so guilt free!
