With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.

1969 ZL1 CAMARO

The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.

Classic Car Overview

- No expense spared four year restoration - 2008 Super Chevy Indianapolis Best of Show - Goodguys Muscle Car of the Year 2008 - Delivered to Queen City Chevrolet in Cincinnati, Ohio - Protect - O-Plate - COPO 9561 High Performance unit - 427/425 HP engine - M40 Turbo automatic transmission - BE 4.10 Positraction 12 bolt rear end - Heavy duty suspension - J52 power disc brakes - Special ducted hood - Daytona Yellow with Black interior - Color-matched steel wheels - Chrome hubcaps - Goodyear polyglas tires Few acronyms hold the weight for Chevrolet performance enthusiasts as the letters COPO. The car offered here began as an original 1969 COPO 9561 example and is also the result of a no-expense-spared four-year restoration process. The Central Office Production Order was a way to batch-build special equipment on the assembly line, much of it often being fairly mundane changes. However, in 1969, the COPO process was notoriously used by the company to install 427 CI engines in Camaros and Chevelles. Moreover, since these were intended primarily for unofficial sanctioned racing use, they tended to be basic packages that did not host normal Super Sport trim, in the hope of keep weight minimalized. When coded with COPO 9561, the car being built was equipped with an L72 427 iron-block engine, upgraded heavy-duty driveline and suspension components, and special-ducted ZL2 cowl-induction hood for air-cleaner clearance. While actual production is unknown, it is verified that Chevrolet created just over 1,000 engines for COPO 9561 installation, some of them likely warranty replacements. On this car, the L72 425 HP engine is backed by the M40 Turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission and associated code-BE 4.10-geared 12-bolt rear end with Positraction. The car features the extra-duty suspension parts and the J52 power disc brakes, with steel wheels color-matched to the Daytona Yellow body. Goodyear Wide-Tread F70-14 rubber and small-diameter chrome hubcaps complete the all-business exterior appearance. The brilliant outside hue is offset nicely by a black vinyl interior, which is also all business, consisting of two spartan front buckets, rear bench seat, and column-located shifter. No worries, however: if you are the driver, you grin and steer; if you are the passenger, you are screaming for your mommy. At any rate, COPO Camaros are among the highest-demand vehicles from this model year, and not many were constructed in this color combination; it does stand out in a crowd. If this car looks familiar to you, it should be-this was the Goodguys Muscle Car of the Year in 2008, and also took a Super Chevy Best of Show at Indianapolis that same year.
