Just found this interesting...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-Chevy-COPO-Yenko-Camaro-/271280681721?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item3f2996b2f9  . Claims 9,100 miles. Didn't even clean the dust or cobwebs off! I don't see evidence that it is a YENKO as owner claims, but orig. owner should know, right?   http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-Chevy-COPO-Yenko-Camaro-/271280681721?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item3f2996b2f9

Check the Yenko registry, pretty sure they have them all numbered and accounted per vin. Good place to start.

He changed the title, removed the Yenko part.
Description: Camaro is all Original. For Sale by Original Owner.
That's it. Not available anymore - if it's that original, I bet someone thought that was a good price (125K).

Well it could still be a COPO, just not a Yenko right? I believe there were a couple of dealers who worked with Gibbs and Yenko to get the COPO cars. Kind of a late VIN though.

  I was told that if you were knowledgable enough, knew the C.O.P.O. #, and were friendly with your local dealership that anyone could order a C.O.P.O.

Yea, I have some pics of the car in a garage that I was sent a couple months ago asking about the value of it... It sounded great in the beginning however as the ACTUAL details emerged it became less and less likely the owners would get realistic about the price.

It's not a recreation, it is just not a survivor, even though it is in great condition for a starting point, and would make an easy resto. Being a auto non numbers matching it has a finished value of less than what they want for it...

ok, so you saying it was an original copo, but now has a ce block in it plus the fact that it is an automatic and you still think it sold for close to 100K?
