Starting Thursday, March 28, Chevrolet will offer a limited run of NHRA-certified rolling chassis designed for drag racing.

The chassis will join the COPO Camaro in Chevrolet’s drag racing family and will cost $55,000 and will be hand-built in the same Oshawa, Canada facility that builds the COPO.

“This is a great opportunity to buy a factory-built foundation for a competitive Camaro race car, saving racers the time of building their own from the ground up and offering them the opportunity to compete with a piece of Chevrolet history, because we’re only going to build a few of them,” said Jim Campbell, General Motors U.S. Vice President of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Add your powertrain assembly and you’ve got a race car that’s ready to tackle the drag strip.”

As a rolling chassis, the unit is sold without an engine, transmission and other necessary drivetrain components. Buyers will be able to choose what powers their drag car, but Chevrolet will also sell all the needed parts separately.

What it does come with, on the other hand, are racing seats, factory glass, head and tail lights, an NHRA-approved roll cage. production-style gauges a racing switch panel a headliner and carpeting.
