1967 Chevrolet Yenko Super Camaro 450 $350,000 SOLD!
1967 Chevrolet Yenko Super Camaro 450 $350,000 SOLD With Commission Gooding Auction Amelia Island 2013 CHASSIS NO. 124377N229158 Formerly the Property of Kevin Suydam, Gary Holub, and Wayne Schmeekle 427 CID OHV L72 V-8 Engine Single 4-Barrel Holley Carburetor 450 HP at 6,000 RPM 4-Speed Muncie M21 Close-Ratio Manual Gearbox Front Disc Brakes, Rear Drums Independent Double-Wishbone Front Suspension Live Rear Axle with Semi-Elliptical Leaf Springs ■First Year of the Legendary Yenko Super Camaro ■One of Only 54 Examples Built and Approximately 10 Remaining ■Top-of-the-Line 427/450 with Rare High-Performance Options ■Classic Ermine White Livery with Rally Sport Trim ■Documented with Impressive File of Original Yenko and Harrell Paperwork ■Featured in Bob McClurg's Yenko: The Man, the Machines, the Legend ■Exceptional Restoration by Camaro Specialist Dave Tinnell ■Possibly the Finest 1967 Super Camaro 450 Extant This Car The Yenko Camaro presented here was originally delivered as an Ermine White L78 SS and immediately shipped to the Dick Harrell Performance Center in St. Louis, Missouri. From there, the stock Chevrolet was transformed into a Super Camaro 450, the most powerful Yenko model offered during the first year of production. During this process, the original 396 SS engine was replaced with a 450 bhp L72 mechanical-lifter 427 that boasted 11:1 compression, a 780 cfm Holley four-barrel, an aluminum dual-plane intake, and free-flowing dual Exhausts. To cope with the extraordinary power of the big-block V-8, Harrell installed a Muncie M21 close-ratio gearbox, heavy-duty clutch, larger-capacity radiator, custom-designed suspension, metallic brakes, and a 12-bolt Posi-Traction rear end with a 3.73:1 axle ratio. In addition to these impressive features, this particular Super Camaro 450 was further optioned with front disc brakes, tuned Exhaust headers, traction bars, 15" steel wheels, and an NHRA-approved scatter shield. Not only was this Yenko Super Camaro specified with notable performance features, it is also one of the few examples that incorporated the desirable Rally Sport trim, which included a center console, walnut grained steering wheel, and push-button AM radio. To most passersby, the only outward sign that this $5,000 Yenko Camaro was any different from a showroom stock 396 SS was its fiberglass Corvette-style "stinger" hood, complete with quick-release racing pins and Chevrolet 427 badging. On August 1, 1967, the completed Super Camaro 450 was sold in a group of six Yenko Camaros to Jay Kline Chevrolet of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Over the past two decades, this first-year Yenko Camaro has benefitted from the care of four respected caretakers whose collective efforts have helped preserve this important car for future generations. Kevin Suyadam, whose renowned collection includes the finest factory- and dealer-prepared muscle cars, once owned this Super Camaro, as did noted Yenko collectors Gary Holub and Wayne Schmeeckle. The current owner is so fond of this Camaro that he has owned it twice. This car's outstanding appearance is a credit to the meticulous restoration performed by Dave Tinnell of Dave's Auto Service in Edmonton, Kentucky. Widely regarded as a leading expert on Camaros and Yenko supercars, Mr. Tinnell has restored some of the most significant American performance cars and his work has been recognized with countless awards and accolades. In keeping with his esteemed reputation, this early-production Yenko Camaro was prepared to the highest standards of cosmetic and mechanical excellence while remaining faithful to the original as-delivered specifications. Since being restored, this ultra-rare Super Camaro 450 has been invited to many exclusive Camaro and Yenko gatherings and was prominently featured in Bob McClurg's Yenko: The Man, the Machines, the Legend. An impressive file of original paperwork accompanies this car and includes the Yenko Sportscars Inc. retail invoice, Dick Harrell Automotive invoice, and Yenko dealer invoice, work order, and shipping order, as well as the Chevrolet owner's manual. In addition to these important documents, this Super Camaro is offered with a letter of authenticity from Yenko historian Vincent Emme and the Authentication Letter and Original Certificate from COPO Connection. Of the 54 Yenko Super Camaros built in 1967, approximately 10 are known to survive today. Of those, few compare to this richly documented, expertly restored, and highly optioned 450 -- a car that many regard as one of the most important Yenko Camaros in existence.
