The COPO (Central Office Production Order) legacy runs deep with Chevrolet, and in 2011, Chevrolet resurrected the nameplate for a new purpose-built NHRA drag racer. None of the cars were street legal and all of them sold to avid racers. Somehow, this particular example remains untouched and it’s for sale.
Streetside Classics listed this 2013 COPO Camaro with 0 miles on eBay. That’s right, it’s unwrapped and never even driven. The plastic even remains over the steering wheel. Even more intriguing, its one of 20 CRC (certified race chassis) cars and features the optional 427 cubic inch V8 engine.
As is the standard with all COPO Camaros, options are few, which means drivers, though we should say “racers,” won’t have a radio, air conditioning or rear seats at their disposal. The cars feature minimal sound deadening, and the exhaust system features headers open headers.
It’s an incredibly rare chance to own a coveted Camaro, though it can’t ever be legally registered. COPO Camaros don’t feature VINs. Still, it’s worthy of some private collection, or better yet, the drag strip.
