+1 Makes no sense to get a convertible I mean shoot if you want your hair to blow in the wind and 150 mph + in the quarter mile roll down the damn window it looks WAY BETTER than a convertible with a full roll cage...

That is one mean vert. Would love to see if it can really do a wheelie.

It may not make sense to some, but it's still a sweet ride! Why not make it when you have all the components sitting there, and know someone will go crazy to get their hands on it. Personnaly, I would have built 69 coupes, then produce the 2 one-offs as icing on the cake.
I still find it comical that they change virtually everything on the car to produce a COPO, then leave the radio, HVAC, and cruise control buttons on the dash and steering wheel! I guess they're sommething for the wife to fiddle with from the passenger seat for 8 seconds (if she can lean forward during that time to reach them...)!

because no matter how you slice it, the COPO is a race car and each and every one should hit the track IMO. and with a vert you either reduce the rigidity of the frame or you add weight with parts to make up for the loss in rigidity. Wonder if this car would flex like a rubber band on the strip or if it is 1/10 slower?

I get it someone with money will buy this for the bragging rights. it will never hit the track and will have 100 miles on it in 50 years... but one thing you have to remember is that the original COPOs were not meant to be a collector item they were meant to shift the tide in the pony wars... i guess the times have changed

They had to leave certain things to fit in the class that they are racing in.

I feel it would be redundant to come in here and say this is the dumbest thing I've ever seen because I already did that in the other thread about this camaro but...

This is the dumbest thing I've ever seen
