1969 ZL1 COPO Camaro
The ZL1 Camaro was a Central Office Production Order (COPO) that could be specially ordered for an additional $4,160 over the base price of the car. This internal "fleet" order helped overcome the restrictions GM placed on Chevrolet to only offer engines smaller than 400 cubic inches in the Camaro.
