Big firepower, no frills, and a back-to-basics vibe that’s insanely appealing.

Very clean Camaro built for combat. 502 GM crate motor, TH400 automatic. Beautiful Lemans Blue paint with recent blue vinyl interior. Power disc brakes. Solid undercarriage, no issues. Cool COPO lookalike with serious firepower under the hood.

If there’s a single year of Camaro that stands above all the rest, it’s the 1969. Everything came together just right with improved styling, even more engine options, and the looming changes in 1970 and beyond all seemed to conspire to create what many consider the ultimate F-body. We’ll say up front that this Camaro is not a car for purists—there are no numbers on this car that are worth mentioning. But someone did build a rather appealing brute of a Camaro that is wholly in line with the legendary COPO hot rods of the period. Big firepower, no frills, and a back-to-basics vibe that’s insanely appealing. In that regard, this Lemans Blue Camaro gets a lot of things right. The clean Camaro sheetmetal really needs no adornment beyond a few factory-style upgrades like the cowl-induction hood, chin spoiler, and ducktail out back, all of which were available on the original COPOs. No stripes or other distractions, because these cars were built to go fast not look pretty, and with some nice bodywork underneath it shows rather well. The crease that runs from the front fender all the way back to the tail panel lines up well, the doors close solidly and without the usual rattles, and the body gaps line up well. Is it perfect? No, of course not. But it’s far better than the usual cruise night stuff and other cars on the street will eye this one warily. It looks downright nasty.

Exterior notes: Older repaint in very good condition. Might have replacement quarter panels but if so, they were professionally installed. Steel cowl hood. Nice emblems, chrome, and glass.

The code 715 Dark Blue vinyl interior is a nice complement to the Lemans Blue paint, and it looks like a combination of reproduction and original parts. Door panels might be original and in very good condition, while the seat covers and carpets are nice reproduction pieces in great shape. The blue steering wheel and dash surround are likewise in great shape and the GM horseshoe shifter is still one of the coolest designs of the period. The factory gauges cover only the basics, so someone added a trio of auxiliary gauges under the dash and it even appears that the seat belts were re-webbed at some point, so they’re still supple and flexible. There’s an aftermarket Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo in the dash that’s fairly unobtrusive, and it powers speakers in the door panels and on the rear package shelf. Overhead, the headliner fits nicely and this car does have the original shoulder belts, which were suddenly everywhere in 1969 thanks to new legislation. The trunk is outfitted with what appears to be the original mat and a newer spare tire cover, and underneath there’s a full-sized spare with jack assembly.

Interior notes: Reproduction seat covers in good condition. Nice carpets with matching mats. Gauges original and a little faded. ‘80s stereo system. Steering wheel showing some age but no cracking or damage.

The reason the COPOs were special is because a few enterprising dealers found a way to game the Central Office Production Order (COPO) system and get 427s stuffed into Camaros, which was “technically” against the GM corporate rules in the late 1960s. Today, this car sports one of the biggest of big blocks, a mountainous 502 cubic inch beast complements of GM Performance Parts. Rated at 502 horsepower and 580 lb-ft. of torque, this big block is far more than even Don Yenko could have dreamed of in 1969. Sporting aluminum heads, a big Holley double-pumper carb on an aluminum intake, and all forged internals, it’s built for combat and makes the lightweight Camaro something of a projectile on the road. Around the crate motor, the supporting cast includes an MSD electronic ignition system, a big radiator, and a modern serpentine belt drive for the accessories. Long-tube headers feed a rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds epic, and the tub has been reinforced with weld-in subframe connectors that do make a seat-of-the-pants difference in how this car feels. A durable TH400 3-speed automatic shuffles the gears, and just in case you were worried about breaking stuff, there’s a custom driveshaft and bulletproof Ford 9-inch rear end out back full of 4.10 gears, so you know this sucker is punchy. The floors are quite clean aside form some minor signs of use, and with power disc brakes it feels confident on the road. A newer gas tank hangs out back and it sits on 15-inch steel wheels with “dog dish” hubcaps for the perfect COPO look. Newer BFGoodrich T/A radials are fitted, with 215/70/15s up front and fat 225/70/15s out back, giving it a nice rake.

Mechanical notes: Big block runs very well. 4.10 gears are very good for acceleration but highway cruising is busy. Some signs of use but no evidence of rot or accident damage underneath. Traction bars mean business. Air cleaner must be rotated just right to fit under cowl induction hood.

If you’re in love with the 1969 Camaro (and who isn’t?), this is a great alternative to the pedigree cars that need so much attention. Instead, it’s a faithful tribute to the nastiest Camaros of all and definitely lives up to the legend. This is a seriously fast car, so it needs an attentive driver, but between the industrial-strength look and robust hardware, it delivers for the guy who’s up to the task. An apex predator, ready to hit the streets. Call today!
