Description
 
The 1969 Camaro is undoubtedly one of the most popular cars of all time. When new, it sold well, and prices of perfectly restored examples are bringing big money.

It makes sense. Nearly every part to rebuild or restore these beautiful cars is available through the aftermarket. Many NOS parts also are available. You'll pay a premium, but that NOS quarter panel can still be found. In fact, the '69 Camaro is so popular that Dynacorn International has produced a complete 1969 convertible body shell. A hardtop will follow.

While standard Camaros are certainly valuable, with many for sale, the real, rare money cars have "COPO" figured into the equation.

COPO is an acronym for Central Office Production Order, and was the ticket to getting a souped-up Camaro with big-block power under the hood. Not just 396 power, but 427-cu.in. power with 425hp! There were several COPO designations, but basically, this meant there was a limited run of non-standard vehicles-something you could not order from Honest Harry at Chevy Land in Anytown, U.S.A.

In 1969, there were three different COPO orders for a Camaro. Order #9560 and #9561 were almost the same cars. COPO #9561 got you an iron engine block. The third COPO # was 9737, which was the so-called Sports Car Conversion with either engine available, a 140-mph speedometer and 15 x 7 Rally wheels. All COPOs were emissions-certified, carried both the 12/12 and 5/50 warranties and were street legal, even with the noisy optional chambered exhaust systems, which essentially had no mufflers.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of their primary use-on the nation's drag strips and from stoplight to stoplight, many COPO Camaros were beaten to death or their original engines were blown and thrown away. But, a sizable number have survived, and one of the most pristine examples is listed for sale here for you to own.

Because COPOs are considered Blue Chip investments by all muscle car collectors, for the foreseeable future their values will continue to rise.
