2017 COPO Camaro
A total of 69 COPO Camaros will be sold. Built to compete in the NHRA’s Stock Eliminator classes, each COPO Camaro will feature a racing chassis and a sturdy sold rear axle in place of the stock car’s independent rear axle.
Buyers will be able to choose from three engines, two from the older LS lineup and one from the new LT range. The LS engines consist of the supercharged 350-cubic-inch V-8 and the naturally aspirated 427-cubic inch (7.0-liter) V-8,. The LT-based engine is a direct-injected 376-cubic inch (6.2-liter) V-8. All three engines will come mated to a drag-ready TH400 3-speed automatic transmission.
