Re: Copo?

Hold back valve may imply that the car had disc brakes. Not a guarantee it had disc brakes but a indication it had them.

Re: Copo?

As an owner of several copo cars the hunt is always the greatest part but then trying to acquire the information to prove your thought that the find is a real COPO is the most difficult task. NCRS does not prove it is a copo. Definitely not the HH car and I would not even consider the one they guy is selling in NJ! I believe it is a COPO off what tell tale signs I see. Automatic as well. 10/10 is rare I have 2 of them.

Re: Copo?

Let me play devils advocate. Without a least a verified inspection of the car, original owner photos, some kind of original paperwork etc the car will be considered a COPO "clone" which will only bring about a 3rd of what the car would be worth as a verified COPO. The car looks like it needs tons of metal work. If it does get verified you would want to us as much GM sheet metal as humanly possible which is probably around $12 to 15k to purchase. Then there's the special parts like the BE rear end which is about 12k. For a un-documented car you can see how upside down you get really fast. I hope this works out in your favor. You don't see a whole lot of black COPO cars.

Re: Copo?

I stay out of the #s and such as I'm just not into it.

I will offer however my thoughts on this.

Sounds like you may have done the research to prove it to yourself.

The catch is do you have indisputable proof to prove it to somebody else? Are you maybe seeing what you want to see?

I would not be comfortable, if I was a potential buyer down the road, without a 3rd party certification from an accepted expert in the field.

Best of luck. Would be cool for sure.
