With all the hype surrounding Corvette Stingray C7 No. 0001 selling for an amazing $1.1 million, it’s easy to overlook another commemorative sale by Chevrolet. Of course, we’re talking about none other than COPO Camaro No. 69 — the only convertible COPO Camaro that will be available for sale.
Selling for a cool $400,000, we’re sure this race-ready beauty will be spending the rest of its years in a polished garage somewhere, rather than running free on the drag strip. Meanwhile, its twin, No. 68, will be kept by General Motors for display at the Heritage Center.
At the heart of this Inferno Orange monster lies a 5.3L V8 with a 4.0L supercharger, which was hand built by Jim Campbell, Vice President of Chevrolet Performance, at the Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan; it sends the power through the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission.
One hundred percent of the winning bid for #69 will be donated to the American Heart Association.
