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.
132961 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro 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
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
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
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
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! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for

2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible Spring Edition - WR TV POV Test Drive
Today we're behind the wheel of Chevrolet's pony car contender. The Camaro received a refresh for
the 2014 model year that includes revised front and rear fascia styling,
new headlamps and taillamps, and a new SS hood that draws inspiration from
the heat extractors first seen on the 2012 Camaro ZL1.
Our tester couldn't be better suited for summer cruising, equipped with a
power convertible top, a 426 horsepower 6.2-liter V8, a
six-speed manual transmission and a dual mode active Exhaust system. Upping the ante even further is
the Spring Special Edition options package, which includes 21-inch wheels,
the RS appearance package, the rear spoiler from the ZL1 model and a blue
leather interior with white accents.

The SKETCHY 'VERT vs ZR1 & Turbo Camaro
WHAT A NUT! hahaha..... A convertible isn't your typical race car, but
with enough horsepower to overcome the
extra weight, anything is possible! This nutty driver has earned the
nickname SKETCHY based on the lack of traction the car has and his
unwillingness to pull his foot out of the throttle! Some DAMN good races
with a bolt-on's ZR1 with a crappy tune and a BADASS big turbo 6.0L Camaro with no traction as well.
You gotta see this!

2012 COPO Camaro: GM's Baddest Factory Camaro Ever! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 6
It's the baddest factory Camaro ever! The 2012 COPO Camaro is a pure drag
racing car built to compete in NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock
classes, and in this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we go behind the scenes
within General Motors to learn about the car, watch some radical burnouts,
meet some of the people behind the COPO, see one of the engines on the Dyno, and visit the
Performance Build Center where the engines are assembled. At the time of
our visit, the only COPO was the very first one, known as the Proof of
Concept car, serial number 001. GM was not ready to release engine power
numbers, drag times, or vehicle weights, as class details are still being
worked out with the National Hot Rod Association.
COPO stands for Central Office Production Order, a process that was used in
the '60s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options.
Dealer Fred Gibb figured out how to use the system to get GM to assemble
cars that were never intended for production. He ordered 1969 Camaros that used a derivative of
GM's 427ci, all-aluminum ZL1 race engine, and bought enough of them to make
them legal to compete as production cars in NHRA and AHRA drag racing.
There were 69 ZL1 Camaros built in 1969, and
Chevrolet is building the same number for 2012.
The new COPO is a pure race car, not able to be licensed for the street,
and is available with three different engines: a 427 that's naturally
aspirated, a 327 with a 2.9L Whipple blower, and a 327 with a 4.0L Whipple
blower. Buyers have the option to own all three engines, all stamped with
the serial number of their car. The COPO is gutted of all the street
equipment, has a rollcage, and the original independent rear suspension has
been replaced with a Strange 9-inch rearend with 4.29 gears and a spool.
Other aftermarket parts include Strange struts and brakes, and ATI
Powerglide transmission, an Aeromotive fuel system, Bogart wheels with COPO
engraving, and Hoosier 30x9.00-15 radial slicks and skinny front drag

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #62: 1969 Jack Douglass Yenko Camaro
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - Any authentic Yenko Camaro is a special car, and this
one is perhaps even more unique. As the popularity of the Yenko name
grew, other Chevrolet dealers were permitted to sell Yenko branded cars
under license. This Daytona Yellow '69 Yenko Camaro is one such animal, being
sold new by Jack Douglass Chevrolet in Hinsdale, IL. Jack Douglass was
the authorized Yenko dealer for the Illinois and Wisconsin territory, in
addition to being a high performance Chevy dealer of his own. This Camaro features the L72
427 V8 and all the COPO 9561 and COPO 9737 package goodies, and is one of
several unique Yenko cars in the Brothers Collection.
