LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro
The legendary COPO Camaro’s produced in 1969 are among the most sought-after Camaros ever factory built. Unlike many performance cars of the time, these Camaros carried absolutely no external identification starting the engine size or horsepower. With their incredible performance from the L72 427 and the rarity of not even being an advertised option, they have an incredible following.
The Central Office Production Order (COPO) process was a method for dealers or GM itself to request the manufacture of vehicles configured differently than the previously planned models for that model year. As GM had a corporate policy that limited F body and X body cars to 400 cubic inch engines, special dealers used the COPO process to get around this policy and install the best GM high performance engines into their favorite platforms.
This 1969 COPO Camaro was sold new at Maxton Chevrolet in Columbus, Ohio to its original owner Joseph Patrick. Mr. Patrick factory ordered his new COPO in the highly desirable code 10 Tuxedo Black paint with a red pinstripe and black interior which make this COPO an extremely rare and highly collectible example. Open the hood and you will find the L72 427/425hp COPO engine backed by Muncie M22 Rockcrusher 4 speed sending power to the factory 4.56 12-bolt differential. This COPO came optioned with Am radio, door edge guards, power disc brakes, cowl induction hood and Rallye wheels with white stripe biasply tires. It also comes with a second set of painted steel wheels with polyglass tires.
Having received a complete no-expense spared exacting rotisserie restoration, the entire car has been gone over and restored from front to back and top to bottom. Many original and NOS components were used throughout the restoration to ensure the highest level of correctness. Once completed this COPO was shown at the American Camaro Association in the Legends Certification judging system. It achieved level 3 and received “Top Flight” certification and the car surpassed their highest level of judging. This COPO is truly for the collector who appreciates the highest level of restoration quality.
This car comes documented with Camaro Nationals Legends judging sheets, ownership history, affidavit from the original owner, period photographs and more. This COPO Camaro is truly an exceptionally restored example that would be the highlight of any collection. Rarely do cars come up for sale that have been restored to this level of quality, in this highly sought after color combination with these options.
