1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO for sale! This is one amazing piece of machinery complete with a fully documented history. This particular car was special ordered by Vinnie Tarantola of Brooklyn, New York, from his local dealer, H.M. Williams & Co. It was then taken directly to his shop and modified and ready to race. Vinnie was building this car to be raced and sponsored by his company, Vitar, which was a highly respected automatic transmission rebuilder. The car was ordered with the steel block L72 engine, and Jack Merkel immediately balanced the internals and installed L88 race pistons. Upgrades were also done to the exhaust, ignition, and valve train. The 12 bolt rear end then had 4.88:1 gears installed. The final touch was the Vitar transmission - a Turbo 400 with a small diameter converter. This car has a significant racing history including class wins at the AHRA Summernationals at New York National Speedway in August, 1969, the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis in 1978 and 1983, and also class wins at the NHRA Gatornationals, Springnationals, and Summernationals. This car has never been licensed and still shows only 215 miles on the odometer. It has had a semi race restoration performed so it still has the looks of its original race setup in a car that can be driven if desired. It has a period correct COPO block under the hood with a Crane hydraulic cam, Hooker Super Comp headers, an Edelbrock intake, Accel ignition parts, and an 1100cfm Barry Grant carburetor. The transmission is a reworked performance Turbo 400 with a 4,000 rpm TCI converter and a Cheetah SCS TurboAction shifter. It also has a posi traction rear end with 4.10 gears. The sheet metal on this car is all original other than the hood, and it has been painted in Chroma Premier Hugger Orange paint to match its factory look. The original lettering has also been recreated on the car. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an actual COPO Camaro with a true, documented racing heritage.
