132757 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko

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.

If you're a hardcore Chevrolet enthusiast who is looking for the ultimate
centerpiece to your collection, or a classic car guru who's been searching
for unique investment opportunity, this exceptional F2 Camaro is your ticket!
This car's one and only owner had been following the progression of the turbo Z program very closely. And when he
heard production numbers had dwindled to a fraction of Yenko's original
goal, he decided to take a trip to the showroom in hopes of picking up a
future collectible. After some light negotiation, a few signed papers, and
some firm handshakes the proud owner took possession of one super rare F2
Z28 that he would immaculately preserve for the next 30 years. When it was
finally time to sell, Pair-A-Dice Rods and Kustoms in Zanesville, Ohio was
contracted to complete a highly detailed, nut and bolt rotisserie
restoration which used 2011 technology to rebuild the car to concours
Pop the glossy white lid and you'll find an original, completely rebuilt
and highly detailed 350 cubic inch LM1 V8 which wears a correct 14010207
casting number and a February (B) 27th (27) of 1981 (1) casting date. Air
for that big engine flows from a chrome, open element air cleaner to an
original Rochester Quadrajet carburetor which rides on top of an original
turbo International turbocharger. Below that turbocharger, a fresh coat of traditional GM
Corporate Blue paint coats the block from its Yenko branded valve covers to
its original oil pan; and fully restored Exhaust manifolds send spent gases into a
factory replacement, single-pipe dual Exhaust system. Fires are lit by a correct
Delco-Remy HEI distributor which sends spark through blue Max Protection
plug wires. Cooling is provided by fresh hoses which snake to and from a
heavy duty radiator. And charging is provided by new V-belts which spin a
new Delco AC compressor and a rebuilt alternator behind a heavy duty seven
blade clutch fan.
The car's high-winding small block is backed by an original turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission which wears a matching 124749 partial VIN; and the bottom of
its body is covered in a smooth coat of GM satin black paint. That stalwart
TH350 spins an original GM 10 bolt rear end which is stuffed full of
highway friendly 3.08 gears. And those floorpans ride on a fully restored
F41 special suspension that, for 1981, added higher rate springs, thicker
stabilizer bars and stiffer valved shocks. Standard equipment with the F41
suspension was improved ratio power steering which combines with standard,
to the Camaro, power
front disc and rear drum brakes to provide excellent stops and confidence
inspiring handling. At the center of the floors, freshly welded single pipe
dual Exhaust exactly duplicates the
car's original system all the way down to its AC catalytic converter. And
at the corners of the floor, 15 inch turbo White Rally wheels spin beefy 225/70 BF
Goodrich Radial T/As around satin stainless trim rings and Yenko decaled
Swivel open the car's long white doors and you'll find a well-maintained
black vinyl interior which looks just as good as the day it rolled out of
GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility. The standard black bucket seats
are in excellent shape and feel as if the only seat time they've seen is
moving the car in and out of its garage. Below those seats, like-new black
carpet is protected by custom, color-keyed Yenko floor mats. At the sides
of those seats, fresh, stainless trimmed door panels hang super straight
armrests below chrome door handles and chrome switches for optional power
door locks. Between those seats, a wide black console props a familiar
chrome shifter above a satin finished trim plate and chrome switches for
optional power windows. In front of those seats, a soft and warp-free dash
hangs satin trimmed gauges next to a Yenko installed Boost gauge, color-keyed water level indicator
and correct radio delete. And in front of the driver, a simulated rope
steering wheel centers a Yenko horn button atop a black tilt steering

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #49: 1969 Chevelle Yenko 427
The 1969 Chevelle SS 396 was a hot car, but the COPO program allowed for a
run of 427 cars to really take Super Stock drag racing by storm.
However, Don Yenko at Yenko Chevrolet one-upped the COPO cars with 99
special 1969 "SYC" Yenko Super Car Chevelles further modified to his
liking. This 427 cubic-inch monster features a 4-speed, and it is one of
only 12 built in Garnet Red. From The Brothers Collection.
#222 - DET - 1970 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Deuce
For sale in our Detroit showroom is 1970 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Deuce. There
were only 175 Yenko Deuces made, of that 175 ten were Citrus Green. Don
Yenko was very good at manipulating Chevrolet's Central Office Production
Order (COPO) program, first starting with modifying Corvairs at his
Chevrolet dealership in Canonsburg, PA. Eventually he moved into muscle
cars where the fun really began! Under the hood of the Nova Deuce you will
find a 350 cubic inch LT1 producing 360 horse power, with just 4,500 miles
since a rebuild. Backing the small block V8 is a Muncie M21 four speed
transmission, 12 bolt rear end, 4.10 gears. Options on this baby include:
AM Radio, Power Brakes, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Raised White Letter
Bias Ply Tires, Atlas Mag Wheels. The restoration on this Yenko Nova was a
frame off that took four years to complete, using date coded numbers
correct components! This Yenko is the what muscle car dreams are made of.
Simply put, it is breathtaking! For more information on this 1970 Chevrolet
Nova Yenko Deuce call our Detroit showroom at (313)-982-3100. To view this
