1970 Chevrolet Camaro COPO CAMARO Z28 9796This all numbers matching Z28 COPO has been certified by Jerry MacNeish as one of less than 8 known to exist with all original build sheet to prove authenticity (see pics below). Many claim to have the rare COPO 9796 option but withoutoriginal buildsheetor window sticker (as seen here) it's simply hearsay.This Z28 COPO Special Race Spoiler package for the 1970 Camaro was designed to allow Chevrolet to continue to dominate the SCCA Trans-Am Race Series. After testing the standard issue D80 short spoiler showed significant lift at speeds in excess of 120MPH. The new COPO 9796 high spoiler helped down force at higher speeds and was a significant improvement in the areas of stability and cornering traction in SCCA Trans-Am racing series. In order to comply with SCCA race rules, a limited number of these cars were built in late April 1970, and starting in June, also included the front spoiler as part of this package. As shown on the buildsheetand documented by MacNeish, this car was built inlate June of 1970.
This example originally finished in Mulsanne Blue, with the optional deluxe blue interior. This COPO Z also retains its original "born with" LT1, TH400 automatic transmission and 3.73 posi rear. The list of options from the factory per the buildsheet and MacNeish is as follows:

Z28 Special Engine and equipment
Since MacNeish authenticated this car nearly a decade ago, we've done a lot to get it to the next level, we painted the car in it's original mulsanne blue with black stripes per build sheet, along with redoing the interior with the rare correct comfort weave blue with black deluxe interior (sourced the last of the original fabric). We refurbished the wheels and added the original bias-ply F-60 firestone wide ovals. This is a rust free car with all original sheet metal still on the car. The engine has never been out of the car and since she runs amazing as is, we've opted to keep much of the engine bay original at this time, though as you can see in the pictures, is very presentable as is. Earlier this summer, we were pleased to have her accepted to the prestigious Hillsborough Concours D'elegance where the COPO Z placed 3rd in class! (5 point deduction for no fire extinguisher in car, otherwise we would've placed 2nd or perhaps 1st!)
The car has a very low realistic reserve price, so bid to win as it's time to let her go as I have too many toys and projects.Please only bid if you have the funds, it's no fun relisting and reporting you to eBay. This is the real deal and not your average '70 Z. Please email or call 415-373-2965 if interested and I can set up a time to view. Thanks for your interest.
