Return to the CRG COPO Research Report.
Gibb Chevrolet originally created the COPO 9560 427 Camaro by arranging the deal with Chevrolet and by placing the initial order of fifty units (all identical except for exterior color and transmission). But the unexpectedly high price at delivery caused Gibb to be able to sell only thirteen units himself, with the remaining units redistributed to other dealers.
An additional nineteen units were ordered by other dealers and these varied widely in the additional options. Final production total for 1969 COPO 9560 ZL1 Camaro was sixty-nine, distributed by forty-one different Chevrolet dealers.

The original Gibb fifty were units 1 through 52, excepting #3 and #51. The other dealers that ordered the other 19 cars - #3, #51, and #53 - #69 - are shown in the list below.

COPO 9560

The COPO 9560 option was ordered as shown below. The only two mandatory options were the J52 Power Disc Brakes and optional tires. Neither were included in the price of the 9560 package. The default tire was the RPO PL5 white-lettered 70-series tires on the base SS 14x7 steel wheels (with dog-dish hubcaps).

The 9560 "High Performance Unit" included a number of HD service components, but the price didn't include a transmission. A transmission had to be selected from the following choices (note that M20 was available, but no cars were ordered with it):

Three units - #3, #65, and #69 - also had COPO 9737 which included the following:
  - E70x15 White Letter Tires on 15" Rally Wheels
  - 13/16" Stabilizer Bar
  - 140 MPH Speedometer

There were ten units that wore optional tires.
 - Units #3, #65, and #69 had COPO 9737 which included E70x15 white-lettered tires.
 - Unit #68 specified PL4 belted F70x14 white-letter tires.
 - Tires were not listed in the data for units #51, #56, #58, #61, #63, #64, and #66 and it is not clear what tires were installed on these cars.

Colors

The breakdown by exterior color is as follows. Two of the units had vinyl tops - the remainder were solid colored. The first five are the colors selected for the "Gibb Fifty":

Only four of the sixty-nine vehicles had an interior different from 711 Standard Black Vinyl. These were #51, #54, #55, and #62, and the interiors are listed under the details of each unit.

ZL1 Configuration

If there could be said to be a standard COPO 9560 configuration, it would be the following, which was used by the original Gibb order that constituted 50 of the 69 units. Twenty were ordered with the M40 transmission at a list price of $7364.20 - these were units #1, #2, #4-10, #25, #27, #31, #32, #38, #39, #45, #47, #49, #50, and #52. And thirty were ordered with the M21 transmission at a list price of $7269.35 - these were units #11-24, #26, #28-30, #33-37, #40-44, #46, and #48.


The following list assumes the above base configuration, and notes only deviations from it, along with transmission selection and exterior color choice.

Note that ordering and selling dealers have been pieced together over many years. Some of the 19 incremental cars have documentation, but some don't and the option lists for those 19 are what is believed to have been ordered on the car.
