    You're so right about value. That's why he hooked the engine out and sold it to a stock car racer back in the '70's. It now resides with a certain very good engine builder who placed its stablemate Ford over here with a racer who is, I believe restoring it to race again...

    The name that is crossed out in the log book, I guess we all know who.
    I was at his place a couple of times during that time frame.
    As for cost, in the early '70s who would have imagined what value a COPO would eventually make. By the early '70s a '69 COPO Camaro wou have been raced out and not worth a great deal.
    For comparison I bought a 1968 Olds 442 Convertible, 455 HO, Muncie, Posi, W31 Air intake etc., etc. I bought it from a DB Motors in Leicester for about 1700 in 1972.

    Petrol rationing was reintroduced in 73 but never enforced , was a government knee jerk reaction to the 3 day week and huge price increase in the cost of crude oil .

    Can you clarify. The petrol ration book doesn't seem to fit this situation? I thought rationing went out in the 50's.......

    I don't know where the car is now Rog , I assume it must have been sold because all the for sale ads went quiet . It'll probably turn up at the Super Car Reunion fully restored

    Some cool info on this thread about when the car was featured in the Oct 72 issue of Hot Car magazine
