Does this mean you are trying to buy one?

The 7.0L naturally aspirated or the 5.3L supercharged?

It will be cheaper to build one. I cant see these COPO's sell for less then 75,000.00

Chevy has to build/sell at least 50 cars to be NHRA legal for a class. these are NOT street cars, these are NON DOT.

these COPO's are targeted for the stock eliminator class. stockers cost 85K and up. Super Stocker 100K and up. plus you'll need at least 2 engines & transmissions, to be competitive.

(my yellow `69 is still a legal Super stocker in SS/DA or SS/EA Class, but i dont have the 50-60k for a competitive engine or the 5-7k for the trans)

The key is that chevy puts together a great engine combo, that meets NHRA standards. once that happens, these cars will be legal in that class. and racers will start building them.

No power anything, driver only seat belts/harness, no back seat, no power steering. solid rear suspension, 4 link, chrome molly cage, adjustable front strut, fuel cell.

  • * Provisions for a Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission, a three-speed automatic or a five-speed manual
  • * High-rise cowl-induction hood
  • * Custom Aeromotive fuel system, with a fuel cell and integral high-pressure fuel pump
  • * Full, chrome moly roll cage
  • * Coil-over front suspension with Strange Engineering adjustable struts
  • * Custom rear suspension, based on NHRA requirements, with Strange Engineering shocks, Panhard bar and stabilizer bar
  • * Strange Engineering S-9 solid rear axle with aluminum third member, 35-spline spool, 35-spline axles and 4.10 gear set
  • * Lightweight, COPO-specific racing wheels
  • * 29x9-inch rear radial racing slicks and 4.5x28x15-inch front tires
  • * Manual steering system
  • * Strange Engineering lightweight racing brakes system with standard line lock.

The interior is all business, with most sound deadening and power accessories deleted. Instead, there is pair of racing bucket seats (and no rear seat), a safety harness for the driver, a competition floor shifter and Chevrolet Performance gauges by Auto Meter.
