I also agree that things got done outside the cookie cutter mold by the factory, And even experts were not there to witness "mistakes" like the stickers, or other abnormalities. Having a large sample size is always going to help, but doesn't provide insight to a guy who has a unrestored car, that doesn't fit.

I just hope these guys with the abnormalities don't get worried and trust the so called experts and change how there car came from the factory, just to fit in and be called "correct" by some judge at a show. Smiley

For the '14, I thought all of them were white. The '15 I have seen Silver.

Yes they leave production early before sound deadener and other safety items, and the rest is hand assembled, I believe since it is small production.

You may get a warranty as long as there are no power adders...

Yes they have. Remember they are factory race car , and not a factory sponsored race car. Once they go into private hands its up to the owners to win their race(s) in their specific class in their region. I am sure there are a few other owners who have moth balled the cars as well.

They had a good episode on Velocity that featured Don "The Snake" Prudhomme thrashing a new Cobra factory race car a while back. If you stop by a magazine rack you will see coverage of each car every couple of months and what an owner has done to make one of them ( Dodge, Ford, Chevy) a winner.

And.. a  'real racer' could probably buy a $5000 Mustang, and with another 10-15K build a drag car that would stomp it....

I don't know where GM gets it's marketing people....   maybe from kindergarten classes??

Well I would say just the opposite, their "race" cars are based off factory models. GM is making a few mods and giving customer a few options for drive train in the COPO and then marking it up considerably because of the COPO name and what it famously has represented. So seems like a good business model to me.
Now if they were making the car from scratch and there was a ton of R & D involved and they were losing money I would agree with you.

You sighted buying a mustang, (which I am guessing you meant street car), but Ford also offers a Cobra drag car that is not street legal, and Dodge also offers a Challenger drag only car, for its followers who want to cough up the dough.

The shifter ball Looks like the one in my car, but I don't see the crooked 4 in your pics?

I am pretty sure it is not street legal as it does not have all the safety equipment in order to cut weight for the track. So they are building these predominately for the racer, but I'm sure some collectors are ordering them to have a COPO. I am not sure about drifter or Hill climb but they also make a track only( Z/28.R )Again for the racer.

An expensive bill last time I looked they were about 75K = Corvette money

I like the performance aspect of the the car, but getting a modern day super car( Corvette ) seems like more bang for the buck.

To the best of my knowledge they were never fully undercoated from the factory. Many many dealers did them as a upgrade for customers like Gary said.

Very nice. The mattress must have been the cheaper alternative to a rotessire back in the day.. Cheesy  Kind of the DIY way right?
