**** , I think I hit some magic button and sent my post before it was finished...here goes again.
GM did produce 427's in 69 under the cOPO program. These were plain jane looking cars, with no badges or stripes, and dog dish hub caps. There were Double COPOs whick included 15" ralley wheels.
These cars had cowl hoods and spoilers, but the rest of the backage was all "go fast stuff" 427/425, M21 or TH400 tranny, and special 4.10 rear.
Yenko was the most famous dealer to purchese these cars, and add stripes badges, wheels, etc.
Yenko 427 badges are being reporduced, and go on the cowl hood and tail pan. I don't think 427 badges are made for the front of the fender, but you can get some for the back of the fender below the "camaro" badge.These were originally for the 67 Yenko. You can also get 427SS badges for the center of the grill and (i think) the tail pan.
