Inside Look at COPO Camaro Assembly


It’s not every day that you get to see race cars being produced en masse. So, that makes today not just any day. Today, The BLOCK brings you behind the scenes of the Official Chevrolet Performance COPO Camaro factory with exclusive images you just can’t get anywhere else. What you’re seeing in these images are some of America’s finest craftsmen constructing each of the 69 COPO Camaros with prep work currently being done to the body, engine and suspension components.

Up until this moment you’ve seen Summit White as the only flavor of the COPO, but now we are proud to share photos of painted bodies in the other official colors: Black, Victory Red, Silver Ice Metallic and Ashen Gray Metallic. And as you’re reading this, inside of these painted bodies welding torches are being lit up to tie in the roll cages to the frames.

Back when Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, first announced the COPO Camaro, he stated, “The COPO Camaro is going to shake up the sportsman drag racing ranks this summer and give Chevy fans a great new reason to cheer on the Bowtie.” Well summer is officially here, and things are really starting to heat up!

So take a seat and enjoy these EXCLUSIVE images of where each of the 69 COPO Camaros are being hand crafted before they head out to dominate drag strips nationwide. Grab your big boy pants, the COPO is coming soon.























And some COPO photos from Hot Rod Power Tour
