Certificate of Authenticity The term was referred to in racing
circles as 7-liters, a 427 CI measurement that was to be the
maximum for sanctioned competition engines. For Camaro buyers in
1969, that 427 CI possibility finally became a reality thanks to
Chevrolet COPO process, which was a run-around for building special
vehicles. COPO Camaros like the car offered here have since become
among the most desirable releases in the first-generation series.
Moreover, this beautiful vehicle, originally sold new at the
notable Reedman Chevrolet franchise in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, has
benefited from an all-inclusive rotisserie refreshing completed in
2017. Many of these special COPO 9561 vehicles spent their
existence on the drag strip, and to bring one back to its as-built
condition requires an intense understanding of its details and a
willingness to locate the correct components. This car has the
MN-suffix block that was the basis for the L72 427/425 HP V-8
engine. It is equipped with a Winters aluminum intake, 4-barrel
carburetor, ZL2-design air-cleaner and dual exhaust.
Date-code-correct components were used throughout, including the
starter, bellhousing, fan blade, alternator and exhaust manifolds.
The engine is backed by a heavy-duty Muncie 4-speed transmission
and a 12-bolt rear end with 4.10 Positraction gear. Built on the
Norwood assembly line with the X44 code, COPOs were not SS models
but performance super cars. This example has power brakes with
front discs, the special ducted hood and is painted in Fathom Green
with a matched green bucket-seat interior. Inside is the
floor-mounted Hurst shifter, seat belts, in-dash tachometer and AM
radio. Like many such cars, wheels were of minimal importance due
to day-two replacements, and this car has the correct-but-narrow
painted XT steel wheels and dog-dish hubcaps with F70-14 Goodyear
Polyglas tires. Already Camaro Hi-Performance Certified, this
spectacular COPO 9561 package showcases the 1969 Camaro body lines
well, with the bulging hood and dual exhaust outlets telling the
truth about its L72 powerplant. Financing and delivery available
