Default Belmount Chevy Olds Ltd. Western, ON

I recently purchased a Rallye Green COPO Camaro N657867 which was sold through this dealership per GM of Canada paperwork.

Did they sell any other COPO cars as well?

Belmont Chev-Olds was a Toronto dealer. In '69 I saw an orange COPO Chevelle in their lower show room. I believe that Beare Motors got it in for a friend of mine. I was told that this car was written off many years ago, but we aren't absolutely sure.

Keith,
Were they a known Hi-Po Muscle Car dealer as well? Was it a big store?

I don't remember much about them other than stopping by with a friend and seeing the Chevelle. They had a main level show room and a lower level as well. I guess they were a fair sized dealership but I don't remember them being connected with performance like Gorries was. Obviously they knew about the COPO cars though so they must have leaned toward performance to some extent.

I believe a Daytona Yellow COPO came from there also, but I'll check the paperwork tonight to make sure. If so, I'll list the options... but it looks very similar to the green one listed above.

Yes, they were a large GM dealership. I lived about a mile North. They serviced the North West part of Toronto and did supply many hi performance vehicles. There were a number of Copo Camaros including the yellow one that Frank Naples owns. My buddies Red Copo came from there and is still in the Ontario area but was at one time tubbed and had been raced with and LS7 in it. Another friend of mine bought a Copo Chevelle from there. It too is still out there waiting to be found. A number of LS 6 Chevelles came from there and one car I know the history of is in the process of being restored and is owned by another friend of mine who found it as a full race car. My Chevelle LS6 is in Nova Scotia with a small block in it. The stories go on and on. So don't think there aren't any cars here! Everyones looking and every Cruise you go to you see another rare Hi Performance vehicle. Belmont Chev-Olds isn't there anymore but the stories are still there.

Mr Motion,

Do you know if Dean Myers and Wilson Niblett were performance dealers then?
