COPO CAMARO 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION UP FOR GRABS

Truly A Collector’s Muscle Car

COPO Camaro

In 2019, Chevrolet announced a special COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition at the SEMA show that year. The package came exclusively with a Blue Metallic exterior, meant to pay homage to the original Laguna Blue offered in 1969. Under the hood, a 50th Anniversary Engine Appearance Package was meant to ape the looks of vintage Chevy performance engines, with an orange engine block, chrome valve covers and a black high-rise intake manifold.

Just like every year since the COPO Camaro program was resurrected back in 2012, only 69 examples are built. And of course not all of them came with the 50th Anniversary package in 2019, simply based on buyer preferences. Mixing things up even more was the choice of three engines; a supercharged 350 cubic-inch (5.7L) small block V8, a 302 cubic-inch (5.0L) small block V8, and an all-motor 427 cubic-inch (7.0L) small block V8. Typically, these NHRA Stock Eliminator class race cars can clock an elapsed quarter-mile time in the 8-second range. They’re faster than the Dodge Demon, to be sure, but then again, these muscle cars not street legal.

It’s very rare to find such a vehicle on the market. But wouldn’t you know it? There is one. What you see before you is 2019 COPO Camaro no. 55 of 69, and it comes with all of the heritage pack fixings. Under the hood is the 427 cubic-inch V8, the same displacement as the original 1969 COPO Camaro, and on the outside is the throwback 50th Anniversary Edition package.

This 2019 Chevrolet COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition also features the ‘Racer Package’, which comes with a parachute, dual batteries, and weight box. The car itself has never once seen the track, and has zero miles on the odometer. In fact, it’s still in the factory wrapping.

Those looking to take this prized pony home will have to shell out $147,500 for the privilege. If that sounds like you, be sure to check the contact info on its listing.
