Thumbs down When a COPO dies.....

Man,
Came across this today and its a bummer. I used to own this car. It was a 1970 Z28 COPO, and a #'s matching, build sheet JM certified Z28-COPO.

Sold it several years back. Just came across this ad, and it's been "pro toured" with a 572ci engine.

On bring a trailer

I know it's not a "COPO" copo, but still cant believe that someone pulled the numbers engine and pro toured it.

This is what it looked like when I sold it:



and the Build Sheet



Bummer..... But this America. Looks like it brought in the $90's as a Pro Tour, much more than as the original COPO 9796.

Man, well, I thought I was going to see a picture of a rolled/totaled car when I read the thread title, so I guess it could be worse! Still a bummer when you think of all the NOM 2nd gens out there.

Wonder what happened to the original engine.

I've seen plenty of this with Corvettes, so sad but it's the world we live in.

Substantial engineering went into COPO 9796 beyond just the rear spoiler.

Oh well, my car remains, and today is just a little bit more rare.

I mean, I'm sure there are other stockers. I really don't like Pro-Touring stuff but it's honestly not that big of a deal. Especially if the guy kept all the original parts
