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. Side note: this car sold for $369K.
