In 1969, the Central Office Production Order (COPO) division of Chevrolet produced the first purpose-built Camaro drag-racing specialty car designed to compete with the quickest in NHRA’s Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes. Fast forward 48 years and imagine yourself behind the wheel of a brand new COPO Camaro. This time with Patterson Elite power and all the custom racing components you desire. Not only can we increase the power from your COPO’s engine, we’ll upgrade the safety, suspension, brakes, transmission and electronics, all to your specifications.
Patterson Elite Performance is quickly becoming the world’s leader in upgrading and customizing COPO and CRC Camaros. We take pride in providing our customers with race ready cars, prepped to win, the day they leave our shop. Our COPO Camaros have won numerous National Events and hold national records.
