Pro COPO

Here are some before & after pix of my Camaro. It was 1 of 30 sold at Scuncio Chevrolet and raced from 1969 to 2009. Not really sure I can label it as a Pro Street, Day 2 or ex drag Camaro.
I wanted it to appear close to an original COPO, but retain it's racing heritage look too. Still a work in progress

Re: Pro COPO

Excellent craftsmanship and very . I really like the widened steel COPO wheels . A '69 vintage Georgia license plate would look on that bad machine !!!!!

Kind Regards,

Thanks guys. It's the same car...originally Rallye Green as in the 1st pic...painted black around 1990 and raced that way til 2009 (previous owner had it goin' 9.3 @ 145 in the 1/4)
I bought it rolling & painted it back original, added a 1969 427 with the correct 840 heads, intake & carb. I did not want to change out the narrowed Dana 60 with 4:10's (also have a bad left knee &foot) so I added a 700R...originally a 4 speed, no radio Supercar

Very nice. I agree with 1969prostreet, the wheels look great.

Re: Pro COPO

Had a shifting problem so I took it back to the Mad Dog trans shop where a pressure valve & govenor was replaced. Probably my fault for using the old trans cooler which may have had some trash in it, clogging the valve. Anyway, they made it a top priority and had me out and all adjusted in a couple hrs.
Drove it on the hwy for 30 miles where the temp spiked a few times, then cooled out around 200. I guessing there's a air bubble to work out or I'll need to try a new thermostat.
Overall, it was a good ride home

Hey I work on Mad Dog, but it is a offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

Glad to see your car did OK. Looks good also.

Re: Pro COPO

Not sure how I missed this one. Very nice looking car, love the color and the wheels/tires. Good choice to keep the faties in the back. It was still nice when it was black as well, really hard to mess up a Camaro.
