I'm a long-time camaro enthusiast, and the proud new owner of an orange 69 camaro. I bought the car last week, and already have a few questions that I hope someone can help with.
Is anybody out there knowledgeable on COPO camaros? My car is hugger orange with the RS option, has the functional cowl-induction hood, and black standard interior. In the dash are a 120 mph speedo and 6,000 rpm tach, and the center console houses the gauge cluster. It's a 4-speed car, and came with the muncie, but the engine and rear-end are missing. The car has a curved-neck radiator, big-block heater box, and power disc brakes (rear drums). There is no power steering, and there are no emblems on the car indicating SS. The firewall tag has an "X11" code and a "06A" build date. The vin# is 124379N660445.
At first I thought it was a SS396 car because of the radiator and the heater box, but the x-code was not right. However, because of the tach and gauges, the hood, and the power brakes, I fugured it was still an SS, so I bought it.
When I got the car home, I looked closer at the heater box, and it does not appear to have ever been removed/replaced. (I have owned several first gen camaros over the past 20 years, and I also used to work in a body shop for a guy who restored first gen camaros exclusively, and I have taken alot of them apart) Anyway, I got on CRG and read more about the x-codes, and now I'm wondering whether my car might be a COPO.
I have read about Ed Cunneen and the resources he has. Does anyone know how to get in touch with him? Is my car a COPO?
