Car Profile: ’66 Chevrolet “COPO” El Camino

Dare to be different

Details

In 1962, Chevy pulled out of the factory's need for speed and high performance race ready cars. They then came out with the SS packages in Camaros, Novas and Chevelles. If a buyer knew the secret code, "COPO 9561", he could get the dealership to order him the meanest 427 race package, ready to race at the drags, known as “COPO” (Central Office Production Order).

“Yenko” Chevrolet bought these cars and added their own specs to them. They never made a “COPO” El Camino version.

This is my rendition of a ’66 El Camino “COPO”. This car has a 468 C.I. 490HP engine with 485 Ft. Lbs. torque, 10.5/1 compression, solid roller cam and lifters, 750 carb, Richmond 5-speed, zoom race clutch, 12 bolt rear end, disk front brakes, 1” sway bar, and all guage instrument panel.

Meet “El COPO.”
