Purchased new August 19, 1969 from Bill Allen Chevrolet . . .
As soon as I read details in the Dick Harrell MSRP, I decided to buy it . . .
Copy of the original paperwork (saved originals in the bank box) . . .



I also saved the 12/12, 5/50 warranty brochure and original owner manual . . .




Traded it off in October, 1970 -searched for years trying to track it down . . .
Found this add on August 12, 2009 - look at the VIN . . .




Lots of work to do but it was my old Chevelle, originally 72 72 (Monaco Orange) paint code . . .


Our "first date car back in May of 1970, now it's home again . . .


Hidden VIN confirms it's my old Chevelle . . .


Chuck Hanson (ACES Pres) stopped by in September 2009 . . .


In March 2010, we were surprised to see that Chuck remembered our visit in his Chevelle World mag . . .


Lots of original Monaco Orange under that "refrigerator white" paint
Motor is built, ready for frame, body and paint work to begin . . .
















August 2009 VS December 2010 2009 . . .

One of 3 known Kansas City MO "K" Plant COPO '69 Chevelle's . . .

Back in the day, I knew nothing about "COPO" but was well aware that Dick Harrell Performance Cars were sold via Bill Allen Chevrolet in NKC Missouri. . .

Aug 19, 1969 - I spotted this bright orange Chevelle on Bill Allen's lot while on my way to work. I pulled in to check it out - details in the Harrell "MSRP" (window sticker) taped to the driver side window that day made me smile just thinking of the possibilities. A couple of hours later, I drove this COPO/Dick Harrell Chevelle to work




May 2011, the last piece of trim installed . . .












June 2011 - Geoff and Joel Stunkard at the National Chevell-abration event in Goodlettsville . . .







Sept 2011 - Chuck Hanson, ACES Pres & Chevelle World mag editor, at the MAC Regional event in Kansas City . . .

May/June 2012, Chevelle World - Chuck Hanson, editor . . .


2012, May SuperChevy event Ennis, Tx . . .
Doctors orders, "not to drive" - recovering from neck surgery - both of my son-in-law's were there to help . . .




Sept 2012, Good guys event, Dallas . . .




October 2012 issue SuperChevy mag . . .


THANKS to all who have followed our adventure - we are blessed . . .
