Default RogerD's 69 COPO/Dick Harrell Chevelle

Hi Gang:

I'm new to the site (Joined last year but a glitch prevented posting my intro)

My ride will be back on the road soon . . .



I bought it new On Aug 19, 1969 - 1st date with my wife May 30, 1970. . .
Traded it off in Oct 19, 1970 - Tracked it down/bought it back in Aug 2009 . . .

Welcome awsome Chevelle you have there.

I see you are the original owner, do you have more restoration photos?

Welcome Roger. Thats one beautiful chevelle you have there !

I must admit that I know very little about the Copo cars other then they are rare, worth a lot of cash, and fast. Can you tell us how many were made like your ?

Dave

Default Stripes, 69 COPO/Dick Harrell Chevelle

Dave - There were a few '68 HARRELL CARS - Transplant 427 Chevelles, Camaro's and Novas in addition to a few '69 COPO/Harrell modified Camaro's and one COPO/Harrell modified Chevelle. The one I bought new is the only '69 COPO/Harrell Chevelle of which I am aware.

Derek - "hood locks" and "spec. striping" (called out on the Harrell MSRP and Bill Allen Invoice), performance mods, Sun SST802 tach (on the steering column), A Harrell emblem on the deck lid and two Chevy "V8" emblems on the front fenders - all done at Harrell's shop. An AM radio was the only factory option other than the COPO (factory installed components) stuff.

That's exactly the way it was the day I bought it new, Aug 19, 1969!

Default Provenance - RogerD's 69 COPO/Dick Harrell Chevelle

Here's a bit of history - my '66 Chevelle SS trade in docs, my '69 COPO/"Mr Chevrolet" docs (with my '66 listed) and my '70 Camaro RS (with my '69 listed).

I just kept the originals from back in the day in a 'treasure box' of stuff dating back to 2nd grade. Most of the stuff is of no value other than to bring back memories - same reason I kept my first few new car docs. Matter of fact, I have the original Owner Manual for the '66 and for the '69 still - sure glad I didn't throw this stuff out over the years as I sorted out and threw away things. Just couldn't throw these away . . .
