So what is a double COPO?
Well, since this was essentially a fleet ordering program (taxi cabs and cop cars, for example) innumerable offerings were available through the COPO system. What the term means in Camaro-Speak is generally the pairing of COPO 9561, the L72 427, with COPO 9737, the Sports Car Conversion Package.
