This is a one of one Gas Monkey Garage COPO Camaro. Included in the documentation are all the Build Sheets for the chassis and spec sheets for the LS7 based 427 with a 2-speed Powerglide transmission.

This is a advertized as 8 second ¼ mile car which makes it the fastest COPO Camaro ever built. All of the torque stamps have the Gas Monkey Garage logo which signifies this as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to honor the COPO Legacy. The complete build with Richard Rawlings in the GM Factory and raceway testing was featured on an episode of the hit show Fast N Loud.

A limited production of 69 cars was selected to commemorate the original number of ZL-1 COPO Camaros made in 1969. COPO, which stands for Central Office Production Order, was Chevrolet's special order system, notoriously used by dealers in the 1960s to build high-performance models that couldn't be found anywhere else. The second coming of the COPO name is an extension of the legacy started in 1969, when the first purpose-built Camaro drag racing specialty car was designed to compete with the quickest in NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes.

Born to dominate in a straight line, this beast is specially engineered to punish the strip, not to mention the competition. COPO is a true racing machine. It is specifically offered for off-highway, competitive NHRA use only. It cannot be registered, titled, licensed, or driven on public roads or highways. The COPO Camaro is designed to NHRA racing specifications, including a solid axle and a full chrome-moly roll cage.

Inside, most of the standard sound-deadening and power accessories have been deleted in order to optimize weight for NHRA racing. Also included are a pair of racing bucket seats (no rear seat), a safety harness for the driver, a competition floor shifter and Chevrolet Performance gauges.
