I saw the AC dash on the Black Copo and therefore assume it is a Clone. This could be like the Burnished Brown COPO that was on Ebay a couple months ago that a Member of this board bought and I assume sold. When Reggie sold the Burnished Brown car a couple years ago it was sold as a Clone for about 22000.00. Later somebody else tries to pass it off as a real car but they keep refering to Reggie . Maybe Reggie sold this one as a Clone also.

They did say it was no's matching , and they did say its a former Reggie Jackson car so you know its the real thing. Yes I did catch the air dash, I have the whole thing on tape.

Well you have to remember that the people who buy a car at Barret-Jackson only want the best and rarest cars. They don't care about a street machine type Camaro. It's like going to an Italian restaurant and ordering a taco.

Nothing against Reggie, but why do people think that a car is original and documented just because Reggie owned it? He's in it to make money so he's going to do everything he can to make a car look correct and documented.

Jeff H, I know what you are saying, but when the auction commentators actually state "numbers matching" you takethem at their word. Anyways I guess i missed the probability that it was a Clone, there had to be comprling reasons why it fetched 45000 as compared to 73000 for the Hugger Orange one

WHile this should be true- I wouldn't do it. I have been to a few auctions, and there are PLENTY of opportunities for a pre bid walk around. It's much better to preview it as an educated buyer than take someones word for it. ESPECIALLY for that kind of money- Reggie or not!

"Well you have to remember that the people who buy a car at Barret-Jackson only want the best and rarest cars."

That is true, but if it was the ONLY reason cars sold at Barret Jackson, that Yellow 68 would never have even been picked by the auctioneers to be there. There was alot of cars not seen on Speedvision. THat car sold for what it and cars like it is worth in the real world- not make believe.

45-large for a "Copo" with a/c vents, what a joke.....If its a clone, then take the a/c vents out!......If it's not a "correct" clone, then don't call it a Copo. A clone obviously isn't numbers matching, but should be correct otherwise.....

Ok guys here we go. I am the guy who bought the LS6 Chevelle convertible, the Berger Z28, the ZL1, the 67 pace car convertible, the LS6 hardtop. These cars are restored to a perfect condition. How can you put a price on that. They are basically works of art. The LS6 Convertible sold for $130,000.00 in 1989 unrestored. Now it has probably been over restored. I have been buying and selling cars for several years and turned my passion in to an internet company www.worldwidemusclecars.com I buy and sell these cars to support my addiction to this hobby. As far as putting these vehicles in a garage and never driving them is a great misconception. I employ several guys who are as pationate about these cars as I am. We take a truck load to several events every month....Super Chevy, Fun Ford, MCA grandnational events, SAAC so that everyone can enjoy these cars. We drive these cars every month to the local car club meetings. Before I started this internet company I worked in the service department of a Chevrolet Dealership making approximately $75,000. a year on average, because of the high demand of these cars my collection has grown to over 65 cars and I get to enjoy these cars everyday. Is this a great country or what?

That's good to hear. I'm worried that by time my 69 Z28 JL8 car is finished, it will be worth too much for me to drive and enjoy. I'm putting every penny I earn into this car so I can't afford to have it lose value. I hope you enjoy the cars.

Congratulations Jeremiah on your purchases. Glad to hear you actually enjoy them. And Jeff H....drive it like you stole it! I race all four of my COPO's at the track and hard. All them have been in the 12's and are restored. That's why they built them!!! You can check my stuff out in MCR in the Pure Stock Drags coverage or on the Dealer Built Racecars show on American Musclecar.
