I'd wager it's the same car! I pm'd you with what little history I know of it which isn't much.

Default Belmont COPO, yellow

Dave Mackay and I threw a yellow one in our initial order of 10 Camaros and 5 Chevelles at Belmont. We may have also later ordered an additional yellow or two for customers, but this one is more than likely the initial order car, 660606. I have an entry on file for the original owner and delivery date.

Lance Hill

ps: Hey, Joe, how are things out there on the Left Coast?

Lance: if you are ever up for a cup of coffee let me know. I would be honoured to have a chat one day.

A friend in Kitchener just finished restoring a Belmont 1969 F85 W31, M21, 4.33 Sable Brown. (I just found him Belmont key chain)

Did "Belmont" play a role in getting COPO's for other dealerships in Canada or did each dealership do their own thing?

Each dealer had to order from GM Canada (via their Zone office), Belmont Chev-Olds was just another GM dealership, albeit the largest volume new car dealer of any brand in Canada.

Well after talking with Don it's apparent we're talking about the same car he remembered. Seems the car spent it's early life from 1973 on in Saskatoon. I can add one more name to the chain of ownership along with some history which is great.Now for some history from when it was in Regina.

And the more I think about it, Im out by a year. I believe my friend bought the car in 74 not 73 but I do know for sure whomever he bought it from was in Regina.
