2012 COPO Camaro: GM's Baddest Factory Camaro Ever! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 6
It's the baddest factory Camaro ever! The 2012 COPO Camaro is a pure drag
racing car built to compete in NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock
classes, and in this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we go behind the scenes
within General Motors to learn about the car, watch some radical burnouts,
meet some of the people behind the COPO, see one of the engines on the Dyno, and visit the
Performance Build Center where the engines are assembled. At the time of
our visit, the only COPO was the very first one, known as the Proof of
Concept car, serial number 001. GM was not ready to release engine power
numbers, drag times, or vehicle weights, as class details are still being
worked out with the National Hot Rod Association.
COPO stands for Central Office Production Order, a process that was used in
the '60s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options.
Dealer Fred Gibb figured out how to use the system to get GM to assemble
cars that were never intended for production. He ordered 1969 Camaros that used a derivative of
GM's 427ci, all-aluminum ZL1 race engine, and bought enough of them to make
them legal to compete as production cars in NHRA and AHRA drag racing.
There were 69 ZL1 Camaros built in 1969, and
Chevrolet is building the same number for 2012.
The new COPO is a pure race car, not able to be licensed for the street,
and is available with three different engines: a 427 that's naturally
aspirated, a 327 with a 2.9L Whipple blower, and a 327 with a 4.0L Whipple
blower. Buyers have the option to own all three engines, all stamped with
the serial number of their car. The COPO is gutted of all the street
equipment, has a rollcage, and the original independent rear suspension has
been replaced with a Strange 9-inch rearend with 4.29 gears and a spool.
Other aftermarket parts include Strange struts and brakes, and ATI
Powerglide transmission, an Aeromotive fuel system, Bogart wheels with COPO
engraving, and Hoosier 30x9.00-15 radial slicks and skinny front drag

132961 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/76q69tb
If you're one of the growing number of enthusiasts who wants to actually
enjoy the performance, look, and value of the storied Yenko name, this '69
Camaro is your
opportunity to forgo the time, headache and six figure cost of building one
There's no question that the '69 Camaro is one of the best looking
muscle cars of all time. Throw in a slick coat of correct GM code 72 Hugger
Orange paint and an authentic race-inspired Yenko decal kit, and it becomes
one seriously lust-worthy piece of automotive art. Naturally, all this
car's top notch eye candy rides on a clean and arrow straight body which
presents solid, dent-free panels with better-than-new fit and super narrow
gaps. And its rugged two-stage urethane provides the kind of dynamic finish
and glossy shine that will emphasize the car's power and attitude for years
Lift this Camaro's
bright orange hood and you'll find a date correct iron block 427 which has
been restored to a highly accurate, showroom fresh appearance. At the top
of that block air flows from a correct open element air cleaner, which is
adorned with a new 427 cross-flag decal, into a coated Holley 4-barrel
carburetor and a modern aluminum Chevrolet intake manifold. At the sides of
that intake, spectacular finned aluminum valve covers hang multi-colored
Yenko emblems above fully restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those
valve covers, a rebuilt points distributor sends fire through correct
Packard TV R Suppression wires. Cooling is provided by a Yenko-spec
Harrison heavy duty radiator which sends water through reproduction GM
hoses and fresh tower clamps. And, since this Camaro came with factory equipped
power steering and power disc brakes, an appropriately tagged Delco Moraine
brake Booster hangs on the firewall
and a correct power steering pump is bolted to the left side of the engine
Although you could get a Yenko with a slushbox, the vast majority were
equipped with tough M21 Muncie 4-speeds. And this particular Camaro, which has been upgraded
with a virtually indestructible Borg Warner ST-10, spins a correct 12 bolt
Posi-traction rear end and tire shredding 3.90 gears via a correctly
detailed driveshaft. That rear end hangs on restored leaf springs and brand
new shocks which help give the car its crouching stance; and that
transmission rides just behind a restored double A-arm front suspension
which features fresh shocks, correct factory optioned power steering and
correct factory optioned power disc brakes. At the center of the car, a
thrill inducing soundtrack roars through a fresh Gardner Exhaust system which accurately duplicates the
car's original chambered pipes. And at the corners of the car, era correct
15 inch American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels wear a fresh set of E70-15
Goodyear Wide Tread GTs.
Inside this pristine Yenko tribute, it's 100% Camaro; and that's always a good
thing! Original GM code 713 Black Houndstooth upholstery features an OEM
feel that simply can't be duplicated by today's best restoration products.
An optional Z87 deluxe interior package, which includes unique stainless
trimmed door panels, wood grain dash applique and bright pedal trim, amps
up the visual appeal. And bold "YSC" headrest decals provide just the right
amount of detail to elevate an already impressive cockpit to a whole new
level. In front of the driver, a good looking black dash hangs beautifully
restored gauges, an electric clock and controls for the cars heater above
bright wood grain trim and a correct Delco AM radio. Below that dash, an
optional center console props a completely chrome Hurst short throw shifter
above great looking wood faced and chrome trimmed accent plates. And at the
sides of the seats, black deluxe door panels are decorated with excellent
looking stainless trim and correct white inlayed "Camaro" emblems. Connecting the
driver to the road is a fully restored factory steering wheel which spins a
blue bowtie and great looking wood applique around a factory tilt steering
If a Super Sport is just too ordinary and you really dig the magical appeal
of that storied 4, 2, and 7 number combination, this high quality Yenko is
just what you need! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

1969 COPO CAMARO ZL-1!!! THE REAL DEAL!!! FOR SALE TODAY!!! #48/69
This very rare and desirable ZL1 Camaro has had the same owner for
the last 31 years. It is 1 of only 69 produced COPO ZL1 aluminum block 427
delivered to Fred Gibb Chevrolet of LaHarpe, Illinois.
The previous owner purchased the Camaro as a shell in 1982 at an
auction in Georgia.
The Camaro then sat
among his many other cars including 18 other 1969 Camaros for years before they
discovered about 7 or 8 years ago via the VIN that it was a ZL1 Gibbs Camaro.
Many collectors and experts searched for this "missing" Gibbs car and
couldn't find it because due to a typo back then the 9 was typed in as a 1
so all title searches failed to turn up the car.
Thousands if not tens of thousands of titles were typed in wrong upon
ownership changes by state/provincial employees who didn't care (it's just
a job) or double checked everything they typed in and with no computers it
just went into a file. This error has now been corrected at the Ministry of
Transportation and has a clear Ontario ownership with the corrected VIN.
Photos were taken of the hidden VIN's on the cowl and a bare metal one
behind the heater box along with the dash VIN.
Finished in its correct Lemans Blue with a black interior this ZL1 is now
an outstanding rotisserie restored example with an aluminum 3946053 GM
issue 427 ZL1 engine, M21 4 speed transmission, chambered Exhaust and a reproduction trim tag.
In 1969, Fred Gibb Chevrolet ordered 50 ZL1 Camaros. The first two ZL1 Camaros arrived at Gibb's
dealership on a snowy evening in the last days of December 1968. The window
sticker price was over $7,200. Needless to say, not many Camaro enthusiasts were eager to
step up and pay a price that was almost twice the cost of the COPO 9561
cast iron 427. Due to this "sticker shock", negotiations transpired between
Fred Gibb and the Chevrolet factory managers. It was agreed that Gibb could
return most of the cars. It was the first time in history that the factory
took back cars from a dealership. The unsold cars were re-invoiced at the
factory and redistributed to other high-performance Chevrolet dealerships.
In addition to the original 50 ZL1 Camaros shipped to Gibb
Chevrolet, an additional 19 ZL1's were ordered through the 1969 production
year by various other high-performance Chevrolet dealerships. This ended
the 1969 ZL1 Camaro
production run at a total of 69 cars. Fred Gibb Chevrolet did manage to
sell 13 of the original 50 that he ordered. This is the last of the "13"
cars Gibb ordered being car #48.
The rest of the cars went to other dealers in an attempt to sell them.
About 20 cars were prepped for NHRA Super Stock class, and others were sold
to private owners. Many dealers who ordered a ZL1 Camaro wound up removing the ZL1
engine and replacing it with a cast iron 396 or 427 in an effort to sell
the car. Interestingly, it took until 1972 for Fred Gibb to sell the last
1969 ZL1 Camaro sitting
on his lot. It sold with a $1,000 rebate from Chevrolet. Several cars are
still unaccounted for, but enthusiasts around the world are still searching
for this rare factory race car. Today, it is known that 50 cars still
exist. Many have been accounted for, and a few are back on the racing
circuit, showing today's generation what 1960s drag racing was all about.
Having ordered 50 of the 69 total ZL1 cars, Fred Gibb had few options for
colour and transmission. 4-speed and Automatic Transmissions were paired
with one of eight colours.
The engine and colour production is as follows:
Fathom Green: 13/69 -- 9 4-speed and 4 Automatic
Dusk Blue: 10/69-- 6 4-speed and 4 Automatic
Hugger Orange: 15/69-- 11 4-speed and 4 Automatic
Le Mans Blue: 12/69-- 7 4-speed and 5 Automatic (2 convertibles)
Cortez Silver: 12/69-- 8 4-speed and 4 Automatic
Dover White: 3/69 -- 3 4-speed
Daytona Yellow: 2/69 -- 2 4-speed
Garnet Red: 2/69 -- 2 4-speed
Only 12 Le Mans Blue Camaro ZL1's rolled off the
assembly line with just 7 containing the 427 4-speed motor.
