The 1969 Yenko Camaro Project

Our family project... a 1969 Camaro shown from its humble beginings, and the process where we changed it into a tribute to one of the greatest American Muscle Cars ever built. When Chip Foose of Overhaulin™ autographed the dash, even he couldn't tell it's a replica.

1969 Yenko 427 4 Speed Camaro
1969 Yenko 427 Camaro 4 Speed built for a customer by Vintage Motors http://www.vintageride.net 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro 427 four speed reproduction built with dated coded 1969 427 Big Block Chevy engine and date coded Muncie 4 speed transmission. This car was torn down to bare metal and any sheet metal needing replaced was done. The body shop straightened all of the panels and a the car was painted Hugger Orange which was the original color of this car. We faithfully scoured all the information that we could find in 2002 to make this car as close to the real deal as we could and budget allowed. We hand made the stamps to stamp the letters on the firewall and installed all of the factory equipment that we could get. The suspension is stock Camaro that would have came on a COPO or Yenko car. We replaced all of the interior back to what you would expect when you purchased a Yenko Super Camaro. This car pulled in crowds of people any place it went and 99% of the people that looked at this car did not know it was not a real Yenko.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/76q69tb If you're one of the growing number of enthusiasts who wants to actually enjoy the performance, look, and value of the storied Yenko name, this '69 Camaro is your opportunity to forgo the time, headache and six figure cost of building one yourself. There's no question that the '69 Camaro is one of the best looking muscle cars of all time. Throw in a slick coat of correct GM code 72 Hugger Orange paint and an authentic race-inspired Yenko decal kit, and it becomes one seriously lust-worthy piece of automotive art. Naturally, all this car's top notch eye candy rides on a clean and arrow straight body which presents solid, dent-free panels with better-than-new fit and super narrow gaps. And its rugged two-stage urethane provides the kind of dynamic finish and glossy shine that will emphasize the car's power and attitude for years to come. Lift this Camaro's bright orange hood and you'll find a date correct iron block 427 which has been restored to a highly accurate, showroom fresh appearance. At the top of that block air flows from a correct open element air cleaner, which is adorned with a new 427 cross-flag decal, into a coated Holley 4-barrel carburetor and a modern aluminum Chevrolet intake manifold. At the sides of that intake, spectacular finned aluminum valve covers hang multi-colored Yenko emblems above fully restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those valve covers, a rebuilt points distributor sends fire through correct Packard TV R Suppression wires. Cooling is provided by a Yenko-spec Harrison heavy duty radiator which sends water through reproduction GM hoses and fresh tower clamps. And, since this Camaro came with factory equipped power steering and power disc brakes, an appropriately tagged Delco Moraine brake Booster hangs on the firewall and a correct power steering pump is bolted to the left side of the engine block. Although you could get a Yenko with a slushbox, the vast majority were equipped with tough M21 Muncie 4-speeds. And this particular Camaro, which has been upgraded with a virtually indestructible Borg Warner ST-10, spins a correct 12 bolt Posi-traction rear end and tire shredding 3.90 gears via a correctly detailed driveshaft. That rear end hangs on restored leaf springs and brand new shocks which help give the car its crouching stance; and that transmission rides just behind a restored double A-arm front suspension which features fresh shocks, correct factory optioned power steering and correct factory optioned power disc brakes. At the center of the car, a thrill inducing soundtrack roars through a fresh Gardner Exhaust system which accurately duplicates the car's original chambered pipes. And at the corners of the car, era correct 15 inch American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels wear a fresh set of E70-15 Goodyear Wide Tread GTs. Inside this pristine Yenko tribute, it's 100% Camaro; and that's always a good thing! Original GM code 713 Black Houndstooth upholstery features an OEM feel that simply can't be duplicated by today's best restoration products. An optional Z87 deluxe interior package, which includes unique stainless trimmed door panels, wood grain dash applique and bright pedal trim, amps up the visual appeal. And bold "YSC" headrest decals provide just the right amount of detail to elevate an already impressive cockpit to a whole new level. In front of the driver, a good looking black dash hangs beautifully restored gauges, an electric clock and controls for the cars heater above bright wood grain trim and a correct Delco AM radio. Below that dash, an optional center console props a completely chrome Hurst short throw shifter above great looking wood faced and chrome trimmed accent plates. And at the sides of the seats, black deluxe door panels are decorated with excellent looking stainless trim and correct white inlayed "Camaro" emblems. Connecting the driver to the road is a fully restored factory steering wheel which spins a blue bowtie and great looking wood applique around a factory tilt steering column. If a Super Sport is just too ordinary and you really dig the magical appeal of that storied 4, 2, and 7 number combination, this high quality Yenko is just what you need!
