Copo Camaro Convertible Coming Up For Auction



For 2012, Chevrolet made 69 Copo Camaro. Two of these drag-sters are extra special because they are convertibles. One is in the General Motors Museum but the other, number 69 in fact is to be auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson in January.

Hiding under than Inferno Orange Metallic hood is a 327 engine teamed with a 4.0 Liter supercharger. Since this is a drag-racer the gearbox is a very stout, Turbo 400, three-speed automatic. The NHRA certifies this cars output at 550 HP.

The convertible roof is completely functional but has to be up when racing, due to governing laws. This is only one of 20 vehicles with this drivetrain and it is the only one painted this unique colour.

Handmade in Oshawa, Canada, these cars can be replicated through the GM parts catalogue.

When this car goes in the block in January, it will be for charity, with profits going to the American Heart Association. "Chevrolet is proud to once again partner with the American Heart Association at Barrett-Jackson for the sale of this COPO Camaro convertible. It will make a great race car or collector vehicle for a lucky bidder, who will be buying a piece of history.", said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.

For 2013, 69 more COPO Camaros will be built but more than 3,000 were requested. The numbers for the 2012 cars break down as

67 were coupes and two were convertibles
43 cars were equipped with the 427 naturally aspirated engine including the original proof of concept show car that debuted at the 2011 SEMA Show
20 cars were equipped with the 327 / 4.0L-supercharged engine
6 cars were equipped with the 327 / 2.9L-supercharged engine
8 customers ordered the collector's package, which included all three engines number-matched to their car
32 cars were painted Summit White including the original show car
20 cars were painted Black
12 cars were painted Victory Red
2 cars were painted Ashen Grey Metallic
2 cars were painted Silver Ice Metallic
1 car was painted Inferno Orange Metallic
12 cars were ordered without COPO graphics.

Is there a law that one cannot race with the roof opened? Really?
