This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 COPO is number 27 out of 69 that
were produced during the production year and was previously owned
by baseball great Reggie Jackson. It has undergone a comprehensive
restoration where it was returned to its original color of Fathom
Green. Power comes from an all-aluminum 427ci ZL1 engine mated to
an automatic transmission. Equipped with a specially ducted
cool-air hood, heavy-duty radiator, heavy-duty springs and a
special BE heavy-duty 4.10 posi-traction rear axle. Documented from
GM and Fred Gibb Chevrolet this VIN was one of 50 purchased under
Chevrolet's Central Office Production Order (COPO) to qualify the
engine and transmission for NHRA competition. It was received at
Fred Gibb Chevrolet on March 11, 1969, then returned to Chevrolet
on May 24, 1969, for redistribution due to the excessive cost of
the ZL1 option. Allan Green Chevrolet of Seattle, WA, took delivery
of the Camaro in late 1969. The first owner of the car was Dick
Tutino, the service manager at Allan Green Chevrolet. Dick ran in
NHRA Super Stock Class and was sponsored by Allan Green Chevrolet
and Boeing Airplane Company until Allan Green closed in 1970. After
the 1971 season, Dick took the car to a race shop to have the rear
wheel wells slightly enlarged. The shop removed the entire trunk
floor in error. Since he could not race the ZL1 in this condition,
he found another body and pieced the car back together again. It
now features a non-OEM Trim Tag.
