The second generation Chevelle was introduced in 1968 and featured a shorter wheelbase with a distinctive, long hood/short deck profile which sported tapered front fenders and a new belt line. Available in various body styles including the two door coupe, four door sedan and the popular El Camino pick up, the second generation Chevelle is considered one of the best cars of the muscle car era with many arguing that the 1969 model is the most attractive of the lot.
The COPO (Central Office Production Order) spec cars were developed by Chevrolets Engineering Product Promotion Chief, Vince Piggins, whose staff prepared the L72 427 V8 from the Corvette and who had also previously released the COPO Camaro. The COPO Chevelle was first offered in 1969 for SS/D drag racing and was considerably underrated when it was described as being 425hp. GMs internal COPO system was frowned upon by upper management who, fearing Corvette sales would plummet, did not want to release or advertise a high horsepower, big block, mid-market, production car. All in all, it is estimated that only 350 COPO Chevelles were produced with very few documented examples still existing today. The pinnacle of the model, the 427 COPO Chevelle, is regarded as one of the best factory-built muscle cars of all time. Examples rarely come to market; when they do, they are sought after by some of the most discerning collectors on the globe.
The 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle COPO 2-Door Hardtop featured here is finished in stunning Phantom Green with a gorgeous green interior. This magnificent Chevelle COPO is among one of the finest examples on the market today and is one of the highest option examples known to exist.
