ZL1 Corvettes were not COPOs. The engine was an RPO.

I'd say the ZL1 Camaros were the most desirable COPO's built.

Blue RS ZL-1 Camaro and/or '68 Z 'vert (if that build was summoned via COPO?).

----Yes, Keith! Later to be owned by Al Maynard, who had the original paperwork stolen out of his truck at the Auburn auction never to be found. He did have copies of everything though...…...Bill S

Agree that this is academic, but the above statement is probably a consensus.

Personally I like the oddball stuff too, like the 70 Z28 COPO and LM1's (which are RPO's too). Neither of which bring much $$ over their "regular" models.

That 68 Z Vert has to be one of the most unusual stories ever. Back in the day when you could get anything done with the right incentive.

Rarest "known" differs from rarest "made". Without knowing the exact true number of copos and Zl1s made with absolute certainty, there could have always been one made that would qualify that isnt known and /or doesnt exist today .

In 1998, I went out to buy a 1968 SS Chevelle. 1 owner, garage kept, low mile, orig. paint, S.Ca. car, loaded. It had Diamond pleated- puffed vinyl package tray, side panels, and a matching white 1/4 vinyl top, also puffed up. I hated it, but the widow pulled out the build sheet, and it had special instructions for all the weird stuff. There were other things, I just can't remember clearly. The original owner was a GM employee.
If she didn't have the build sheet, I would have thought it was done in TJ.
