The Fire-breathing 425 HP 1969 Camaro
In 1969 Chevrolet marketing exec Vince Piggins utilized the company’s Central Office Production Order (COPO) program to produce a fleet of Camaros specially engineered for drag racing. A bargain at $489.75, the COPO 9561 package included the L72 427/425 HP V-8 engine, special ducted hood, dual exhaust system, increased cooling capacity, heavy-duty suspension, power front disc brakes and a special 4.10:1 Positraction third member with heat-treated ring and pinion. This is a very rare 1969 Camaro COPO 9561 Coupe. Unlike the standard COPO, this one was ordered with the Rally Sport package, Muncie M22 4-speed manual transmission, center console with Special Instrumentation, front and rear spoilers, power steering and AM/FM radio with rear seat speaker.
Perhaps more significantly, this is a 15,000 original mile, unrestored original. The owner even has all the original documentation with the original Protect-O-Plate, broadcast sheet, dealer invoice, new vehicle warranty and W.U. telegrams from Chevrolet chronicling the order and delivery status of this rare machine. Lucky for you, this one can be had if the price is right. If you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.
