My PM box is log jammed. Where can we openly discuss this Camaro? Very curious as how it went from an X66 big block , possible NicKey Conversion to a 9561 COPO?

It’s not indicated as factory 9561 in the COPO column - only says "Nickey" in the left hand column. At the top of the "RPO" column, we indicate that dealer additions may be included. To the best of our knowledge, the car was converted to solid lifter 427. I think you're right though, I should take 9561 and L72 out of the RPO column for the car in question. I wish that we had more solid information of the Nickey converted supercars - hint, hint.

Sounds like you have the correct info. This Camaro is not an RPO 9561, L72 factory equipped vehicle.

It is Not included in the NicKey Registry as a certified Car. Based on Don Swiatek’s inspection, research and an affidavit from a long term owner, as well as vintage pictures, etc. it is believed to be a NicKey Chevrolet Shop Car.

As far as anyone needing info on any NicKey in our registry all they need to do is call or email and provide proof of ownership.

It would be a real service to the community if we could add the vins of cars that you can authenticate to the registry. Only you would know all of the details of conversion, but the community could be watchful for the cars with those vins - just like we watch for Yenko vins. Why not share them if they are available? Finding more of the great Nickey conversions would enhance visibility and grow the brand among collectors IMO.

We’ve had this discussion before, but might as well open it up to community input since PMs don’t work.

We has the same discussion regarding releasing the Yenko Vin and doing so has been a big plus. Not releasing is selfserving and not beneficial to the hobby. We are in fact looking to expand the registry to include solid lifter cars and other brands.

Got a guy in one of my FB groups mentioned he has a COPO, and he is not aware of your registry. Can I get an email to send to him? Thanks.
