When it comes to Camaro versus Mustang, we’re currently seeing the most exciting and diversified pound-for-pound war between the two American darling cars in nearly 50 years. For every one of Ford’s Mustang variants; the V6, GT, Boss 302, GT500 and Jet, there’s the Camaro V6, SS, 1LE, ZL1 and now, the COPO.
With plans to only produce exactly 69 of them, the purpose-built Chevrolet COPO Camaro drag racers will take the fight to the Blue Oval on the drag strip front. And the first finished examples of them have been loaded onto a Reliable Carrier and are on their way to their new owners.
These examples are numbers 3,5,7 and 9. Each of them have been chassis certified by the NHRA, and are 100% eligible for sanctioned competition. The video below features one being loaded into the carrier, where we’re teased by listening to its healthy idle.
