Default Verifing COPO totals imported into Canada

In 1969 I ordered and signed off on more COPOs than anybody in Canada, all for Belmont Chev-Olds in Weston, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto. Recently I came across a pile of paperwork from back then that included the official number totals of COPO Camaros imported, as well as Chevelles: 70 model 12437 with COPO 9560 & 9561 produced at Norwood, Ohio; 30 Malibu model 13637 with COPO 9566 & 9562 produced at Baltimore, Maryland. The term COPO was of course not applied exclusively to 1969 GM production but was in fact in use from at least the 1950s. The figures have been independently verified by GM Vintage Vehicle Services Inc in Oshawa. Anybody wishing to acquire data on a specific VIN can do so as usual with Vintage Vehicle Services.

There were at least two of them, and rumours of a third, but it was never proven, from what I understand.
