Hello all, I am not a Camaro owner yet but I would like to share a Camaro story I have just recently uncovered. I have been reading the the forums and
have noticed that it is believed that there were no 1969 Camaro 427/512 COPO's convertibles produced. I think I may have found one and I am in the process of checking it out. If there was such a beast produced, what should I be looking for to verify it's existence?
Any help would be greatly appreciated and if someone here would be interested
in purchasing this car (assuming it is the real deal) please let me know and to be fair would would it be worth to you? This could be the only one in existence.
I should also tell you that this car has been fully restored according to the owner and has no miles on it since the restoration. PM me if you want privacy.

Thanks, Cougla

You would need to post all the stamps on the engine, transmission and rear as well as trim and vin tags.

All the true factory ordered copo vins are known and documented as far as I know. Doesn't mean another lesser known local race dealer didn't create one from a stock ss big block on their lot but the factory and front office would have no record of it and the numbers wouldn't match.

I learned long ago to never say never, but I seriously doubt it is a factory built COPO. Brians assessment is more than likely what happened if it was bought new with a 427. If it is a dealer built car, I seriously doubt they stamped the correct numbers in the block and such. Plus is should be a CE block. Like mentioned, a ton of pictures of stamps/VIN/cowl tag/etc will be needed before anyone can make any calls about originality or value.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
