Welcome to 427 COPO Camaro.com

The COPO Camaro was what Chevrolet built to get a High Performance 427 Cubic Inch 425 Horsepower Big Block Mark IV engine into an assembly line factory Camaro. These COPO Camaros were limited production and did not show up in the official factory or showroom brochures. Most of us know about the 1969 COPO and Yenko Camaros, but the story is more interesting. These COPO Camaros were "Special High Performance Units"

 

The 427 COPO Camaro was built for a purpose:
to Rule The Street and to compete and win at the Drag Strip.



Initially accepted by the AHRA and enventually by the NHRA,
427 COPO Camaros left their mark in Muscle Car History!


The most commonly known COPO Camaro is the Yenko Camaro, which was supervised by new car dealer / sports car racer Don Yenko. COPOs were built before and after this legendary 1969 model.

 

Here are some pages about the Yenko and COPO Camaros:

 

 

1967 Yenko Camaro

 

1968 Yenko Camaro

 

1969 Yenko Camaro

 

1969 COPO Camaro

 

 

A new COPO Camaro has been built by Chevrolet
for the past few years now, and this new
COPO Camaro has been creating a lot of excitment
at the drag strips and at the auction blocks.
