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.

The 1969 COPO Camaros were so significant, that they inspired
the creation of the 2012 ZL1 Camaro! Click here to see more!


The Yenko/COPO Camaro book has been placed on hold indefinitely due to health reasons. Please check back for possible release.
