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.
