1969 Double COPO Camaro
The 1969 Camaro 427 COPOs are famous for their raw power at 425 horsepower and very low production numbers. They were specifically made to get around the limitations on performance cars that General Motors had imposed on Chevrolet. The COPO cost an additional $4160, and very few knew enough to order them, which kept production numbers under 100. It wasn’t until years later that it became public knowledge that there was an easy way around the corporate bureaucracy: a special fleet order procedure (know internally as the Central Office Production Order) normally used for special equipment on commercial vehicles like trucks or police cars. This Camaro is a double COPO because the front and rear sway bars needed to be upgraded to handle the power and the spoiler was added for aerodynamics.
