It is just four letters, but to Camaro enthusiasts they always mean a lot. This COPO 9561 is remarkable in many ways, built by the factory to extreme performance specifications with excellent history and a hi-level restoration. Beyond that this may be one of the most important examples to come up for sale recently. In 1969, this car was special ordered through Leighton Chevrolet in York, Maine. It is only one of a handful painted in Burgundy that year (2.5%), and was one of only two COPO cars delivered to this location. Known locally as “King Rat” this car came new with the L72 427 engine, complete with ZL2 hood, rare 4346 Holley 4-barrel carburetor and a cowl induction air cleaner. That option’s $489.75 cost increased by another $322.10 when the M22 Rock Crusher was added, and the $42.15 code-BE912G differential gave it a 4.56 Positraction rear gear! Most COPO Camaros were basic, built to go fast and little more, yet this car was also optioned with center console, AM radio, power disc brakes and Rally wheels, pushing the sticker price over $4,000. A late-year build, this car retains its original sheet metal with no rust repair needed, an intact trunk with one quarter panel replaced due to damage w/NOS panel. Its history is known from the purchase date in October 1969. Most recently, the acclaimed Supercar Workshop crew in Pennsylvania gave it a multi-year fully documented restoration to its as-delivered condition. Date coded down to the starter and featuring era-specific Goodyear white-stripe tires this car will need nothing. Incredibly documented with the original dealer order, dealer sales invoice and owner history, the sale will include that paperwork, as well as restoration photos, invoices and receipts reaching nearly the $200k mark.
