Frame off restored like a factory COPO!

Frame up restored to factory COPO (Central Office Production Order) specs. 396 was the biggest engine available in a Camaro. A lucky few were able to special order a 427, usually in a stripped down model, these were known as COPOs. Very few exist and can fetch 1/4 million $ today. This is a high quality car- looks and performance.

Lemans blue metallic paint is laid out evenly and the clear coat is polished smooth and glossy. It is a no frills car so it doesn't have the spoilers and extra trim but it does have the functional cowl induction hood. Up front the grill, bumper, emblems, lenses are all new. The marker lights, door handles, mirror, correct antenna are new. Stainless around the windows is also new. In back the tail lights, bumper and emblems have been replaced.

This is a good one. The fit, finishes and function are exceptional. I personally drove it and enjoyed every minute!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
