You can't argue that the '69 Camaro wasn't one of the
best-looking pony cars of all time, and the Yenko treatment only made it
better. This one is dressed appropriately as a base V8 Camaro with full Yenko regalia
and a simple ducktail spoiler. A cowl induction hood was added, along with
a cool chin spoiler, and the Lemans Blue paint is the perfect combination
of subtle and stunning. Rendered in two-stage urethane, it has a soft glow
to it that only seems to emphasize the Yenko's power and attitude. Before
the Yenko stripes went on, the entire body was color sanded and buffed for
a spectacular shine that really makes the white stripes pop.
But let's be honest, the only reason you want a Yenko lives under the hood.
In this case, it's a correct iron block 427 cubic inch mill dressed like
the factory would have done, plus a few upgrades. There's Chevy Orange
paint on the block, a correct open element air cleaner with '427 turbo-Jet 425 horsepower' decals, and OEM
chrome valve covers, which were standard equipment on big block Camaros. Upgrades include a big
Holley carburetor atop an Edelbrock intake, some positively huge long-tube
headers, and an HEI ignition system to light the fires. There's almost no
sign of usage anywhere under the hood, and the level of detailing will make
you want to pop the lid every time you park the car.
Although you could get a Yenko with an automatic, a vast majority were
equipped with Muncie M21 4-speeds like the one in this car. Out back,
there's a correct 12-bolt with 3.73 gears and a Posi. That massive dual Exhaust system features Flowmaster
mufflers that sound like God's own V8 is under the hood, and subframe
connectors have been added to keep the body tub solid behind all that
power. Power disc brakes, a new gas tank, and fresh KYB shocks at all four
corners keep it planted. Cool American Racing Torque Thrust wheels give it
a period performance look that's just as cool as steelies and dog dish
hubcaps, and wear a set of performance radials.
Fresh black seat covers, new door panels, and correct carpets give it an
OEM feel, plus those sYc decals on the front seat headrests (and yes, they
were decals on the originals, too). This one also has a beautifully
restored center console, complete with Hurst shifter and cue ball knob, not
to mention some beautifully reproduced wood appliques. A reproduction
rosewood steering wheel helps warm up the interior, and bringing the Lemans
Blue paint into the car on the steering column and glove box lid is a cool
touch. A new AM/FM/CD stereo system has been installed, because this is a
car you're going to want to drive and there's no point to absolute
originality in this car. A new set of Chevrolet logo floor mats were
dropped in, and the trunk features a proper mat, spare, and jack assembly.
If an SS is just too ordinary, and you really dig the appeal of those magic
three numbers, 427, then perhaps a Yenko is just what you need. Building
one to this level will cost a lot more than the sticker price here, and
even if you started today, it would be more than a year until it was done.
No, if you've got a big block jones, the only thing you need is this Yenko.
