The Story of the COPO Camaro

This 2017 COPO Camaro was ordered and built through Tasca Chevrolet in Rhode Island, specifically for Bob Taska Jr. Despite being part of the Ford Racing team, the Tasca family believed that small block Chevys were faster than big block Fords. But let’s not get into that debate. This car features Bob Taska’s name and the serial number 005 on the trunk. It’s finished in hyper blue with collector graphics, along with a carbon fiber hood painted to match. This was a custom option added along with a parachute mount and wheelie bars.

Built to Precision

These cars are built from a completely stripped-down shell, hand-built in Oxford, Michigan by TurnKey Automotive, the only officially licensed company authorized by GM to build these cars. Sitting on drag radials, this car has never been track-prepped or taken down the strip. It’s in fantastic shape, making it a great collector’s item with a unique history.

The Interior: Stripped Down for Speed

The interior of the COPO Camaro has been stripped of all stock options to keep it lightweight. It’s still brand new, equipped with racing-style bucket seats and a full roll cage, ready for NHRA. You’ll also find a Hurst reverse manual valve body shifter, ignition switch, and other controls. Though the rear seat has been deleted, the car comes with additional goodies like a Copo travel bag and carbon fiber air intake scoop.

Under the Hood: A Powerhouse

The COPO Camaro is powered by a 350 cubic inch small block Chevy with a massive Whipple blower on top. It’s mated to a th400 three-speed automatic transmission, and boasts Copo long tube headers, manual steering rack, and a strange solid rear axle with top-of-the-line parts. This car is not just a race car, it’s a piece of history.
