History

A Central Office Production Order was offered to Chevrolet dealers who needed custom - spec vehicles for commercial buyers. Typically, COPO Orders originate from fleet sales to law enforcement or logistics companies that require specific equipment across a number of different cars or trucks. They weren't offered to retail customers, and you wouldn't find these options on any of the standard paperwork used to order cars from mothership. Piggins had a history of getting away with big block murder at GM throughout the decade by couching his Orders for larger engines and high performance equipment with terminology like off - highway or describing components as heavy duty. Estes had helped create GTO for Pontiac by making its big V8 options package rather than trim level on mid - size Tempest coupe. Yenko had been using COPO to order Camaro - specific gear for his transplant cars, while Gibbs had dipped toe into racing the year before by way of 50 COPO - source, automatic - equipped Nova SS coupes aimed at specific NHRA drug racing class. Well - verse in smoke and mirrors required to make wheels turn at recalcitrant General Motors, four men would each have part in creating two unique COPO Orders. Gibbs COPO 9560 makes use of 430 horsepower, aluminum block 427 and features upgraded rear axle and cooling, air grabbing hood, and disc brakes up front. It was dubbed ZL1. Yenko's COPO 9561 includes an iron block version of 427 that is good for between 425 and 425 horsepower, paired with a unique front suspension setup.

Chevy COPO Camaro Historyl

Over the years, COPO has become synonymous with Chevy monster - displacement Camaros. It is a term that is still used today by Chevrolet for purpose - built drug racing Camaros, which are released year after year, just 69 units at a time. But what does COPO really mean? Acronym for Central Office Production Order, COPO was method used by dealers to know who could use it to order options, or combination of options, that were specifically listed on order forms. The most famous use was when dealers used the COPO system to circumvent the GM 400 - cu - in limit on anything that wasnt full - size car or Corvette. If you know what dealers to go to and who to talk to, you could have use COPO system to order factory instal 427 in 1969 Camaro or Chevelle. In 1969, about 1000 Camaros left the factory with a Chevy L72 427 that was rat at 425 hp. Since then, performance of these cars has developed into the stuff of legendand their values reflect it. Pristine, well - documented car will fetch upwards of 200 000. Maybe 30 000 in 1989 doesnt sound all that bad, right? Well, back then it was still just an expensive used car with automatic transmission. In the late 80s, gasoline was not what it used to be and high - compression 427 required leaded gasoline, so even just filling it up would have been a hassle. That say, rarity and desirability of these cars has since more than made up for that annoyance. While time to cash out on a high - end muscle car like this would have been a few years ago, 4. 3% rate of return since then still makes this a solid investment, and if you could find the right fuel to feed this monster, it would be an even better investment in tire - burning fun.
