PowerBlock TV’s MuscleCar pays tribute to the COPO Camaro, starting with a ZL1 427

FRANKLIN, TENN. JANUARY 4, 2013 –

To celebrate the rare, original 427 COPO Camaro, “MuscleCar” is teaming up with aftermarket partners Chevy Performance, Classic Industries, Barrett-Jackson Restoration Systems and others to build a correct-appearing tribute car with subtle upgrades.

The COPO Camaro legend started in 1969 when Chevy dealers, desperate to beat GM’s ban on selling high-performance small cars, discovered he could order Camaros with 427-inch ZL1 aluminum race engines by using GM’s Central Office Production Order form. They were one of the most powerful street-legal cars Detroit ever built, and with only 69 made, extremely rare.

“Forty-four years later, gearheads continue to lust after these cars. This will be MuscleCar’s highest profile project ever so we are dedicating multiple episodes to detailing what it takes for a guy to build one from the ground up,” said RTM executive producer Joe St. Lawrence.

The tribute car will be built around sponsor products such as a limited edition 430 HP 427 Anniversary Edition crate engine from Chevy Performance and authentic GM Restoration parts from Classic Industries, including everything from brake, suspension, cooling system components and sheet metal. The COPO will be painted with the new Barrett-Jackson Restoration System, which features prep, paint and protection products.

The car will also feature an Auto Gear M22 four-speed transmission, a 12-bolt Moser rear end, Lizard Skin insulation, TMI seats, Wheel Vintiques rally wheels and Firestone Wide Oval tires from Coker Tire.

RTM Productions will air the COPO episode of MuscleCar at 10:30 a.m. EST/PST, Feb. 9-10 on Spike TV. Episodes of the COPO also can be streamed for free at www.powerblocktv.com, and include links to the featured parts.

Chef Guy Fieri presents Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition on Chevy stage

Ford and GM have gone-head-to-head in stealing the spotlight from one another at SEMA 2012, and it looks like neither brand is backing down.

Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri presented his Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition on the Chevy state today. It sports a black LS7-powered soft top and black with custom yellow stripes, and sits on Black Cup Wheels with Michelin’s PS2 Cup Tires.

The interior is highlighted with embroidered seat headrests and custom fender badges that pay tribute to the Guy Fieri Foundation.

The vehicle will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car auction early next year, and proceeds are going to charity.
