Double COPO claims for GMMG's????

Postby daytonajim » Mon Jun 27, 2016 11:21 am

I’ve noticed a few listing their GMMG’s as Double COPO cars.

COPO cars in the late ‘60’s were ‘Central Office Production Order’ direct from GM & many were sold thru Fred Gibb.

Do you think a the term for a GMMG as a Double COPO is correct?

Some claim their GMMG's are COPO or double COPO.

Here's their thinking................. The car went to SLP for the 35th Anniversary Package & then to GMMG for the upgrades.

Does this make it a Double COPO?

What you say?

Is it even worth discussing?

The COPO name has never had anything to do with GMMG's & anyone advertising their GMMG's as a COPO is misinforming anyone looking at the listing & they should be informed they are wrong. Until someone proves me wrong this is my position.

Search Facebook 'GMMG Enthusiast' for more information.

There are so many people that don't have a clue about GMMG's & when false information is out there in print to see many buy into it.

My 2 cents.

They are two different things. Not even worth discussing IMO.

I agree that it is just trying to streeeetch the specialty of the GMMG cars way too thin. NEVER had a thing to do with a COPO. I do not think the COPO office was still in existence then was it?

I did a little digging and spoke wth Scott Settlemire, there is no such thing as a COPO fourth generation Camaro. PERIOD.
............ End of discussion -- here's the answer from Scott.

I've been a GM guy for A LOT more years than I can remember. I remember when the COPO cars were new, but for the life of me, I don't remember what or if there was something special indicated on the build sheet or whether they were all just ordered with certain options by dealers like Nickey, etc. I guess that engine code would be called out on the build sheet, but there were dealers installed 427's that were called COPO cars.
With that being said, I agree with Andrew that there is no relationship with anything other than the cars being GMMG cars only.

No . . . B4C is a RPO, a Regular Production Order, by that logic any Camaro with a RPO designation is a COPO.

My thinking agrees with Andrew's. I don't see anyway a GMMG could be a COPO. Why would B4C's be COPO's? This could be an interesting discussion?

COPO cars came from and were upgraded at GM. Once they left GM they went to GMMG and basically GM was done with them. IMO
