Default Nice Burgundy COPO

Nicely done. Not sure on the white-striped tires, but the rest of it sure is snazzy. They should fix the 4.56 BE rear-end reference in the copy.

Might be correct. Several COPOs were built with COPO 9511, 4.56:1 axle. Still had the BE code.

How many documented 4.56 BT axle COPO cars were are known? Would there be a reason why some received the 4.56 BT axle and others like this one received a 4.56 BE axle?

The two 4.56 BE COPOs Steve noted are well known in the hobby. Others are possible.

BT is the code for the 3.55 posi axle. 4.56 was special order only [COPO 9511] for '69. There is a 9511 Z/28 with 4.88s; believe that code is BX, same as '68.

Data indicates 997 L72 COPOs were built. Current body of knowledge includes about 450 cars. Plenty left to learn about COPOs.
