I have located a 69 Camaro that is described as a COPO clone. I have seen numerous other clones of this sort with a wide range of prices, but this one has a correct COPO engine with cast # 3963512 and pad stamp "MN", correct Tuxedo black paint code 10/10 and correct code #713 b&w houndstooth interior. It also is an X22 code car, so it was a big block car. It has a recent frame off restoration, power steering and brakes, black wheels and dog dish hubs,12 bolt posi rear end and TH400 automatic trans. I am having a difficult time establishing a value to this special muscle car. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Only my opinion, but I don't think would be worth much more than the parts that are in it. I don't think there will be much added collector value since the numbers aren't correct.

Is there a VIN stamped on the block? If so the car would be worth more to someone that enging could be replanted into the car it orginally came from.

Jeff is right. If you buy it, you might do a DMV search for the original car, you might get lucky (I know a guy in Ohio who successfully found and purchased a car and reunited it with his engine that way.) Failing that, go to Yenko.net, and post the VIN. Lots of high dollar COPOs with non-original motors. Your motor would be worth a lot to the owner of the car.

As for value, it's shocking how much good Yenko/COPO clones are bringing.

BTW MN code is for COPO 4 speed, MO is for TH400.
