1968 Fred Gibb COPO 9738 SS396 Nova (1 of 50)



Quote:
After discussing the possibilities with his friend in Detroit, Chevrolet Product Promotions Manager Vince Piggins, Gibb special-ordered a batch of 50 396/375-horse Chevy IIs (nicely redesigned that model year) to homologate a fresh Chevy for SS/CA competition. Piggins approved the Central Office Production Order (COPO) system to get the special cars onto the assembly line. This COPO code-9738-told the production department that this batch of Novas would receive 396-inch L78 four-barrel engines, the experimental Turbo-Hydro 400 automatic transmissions, and heavy-duty Posi differentials with 4.10 gearing. This program would also place the new automatic behind a performance solid-lifter engine for the first time; it subsequently led the way for the L72/ZL1 427 and LS-series 454 performance automatic packages found in the coming model years.

1970 Challenger T/A - V02: Two Tone Paint - Green Go & Tuxedo Black





There is no record of how many 1970 T/As had two tone paint. This is one of three known, though one of them was repainted in a solid color, but the Fender Tag does show it is a V02 car. V02 for the T/A was restricted to either TX9 (Tuxedo Black) or EW1 (White) for the roof.

This is the 2nd known V02 T/A - Hemi Orange & Tuxedo Black:





This is the 3rd known V02 T/A (should have an EW1: White roof)



Records do show that approx. 124 Challenger R/Ts were painted in two tone.




With 124 made, I had great difficulty finding any of them. This leads me to believe that many are no longer painted in their original V02 colors.

The 1970 Challenger T/A was available with 4 different colored vinyl roofs


Boars grain;

V1X - Black



Gator grain;

While the AAR 'Cuda was only available with a single vinyl roof option

The Challenger T/A was also available in V02 while the AAR 'Cuda wasn't.
