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.
SBC Noisy Cam Gear Swap and header install
This was my first noisy cam gear install. I also finished installing my headers and glass packs. Chevy 350 with Comp Cams Magnum hydraulic flat tappet grind #12-211-2, with two changes... it has the 4/7 swap and LSA is 112 (instead of 110).
69 Camaro wicked exhaust
Supercharged Camaro. Lots of HP.. 572 big block with 6psi Boost.
This isn't my car and I have no idea what the Exhaust, wheels or anything else is on this car other than the size of the engine and that it sounds RAD. Enjoy!
