For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/76q69tb
If you're one of the growing number of enthusiasts who wants to actually
enjoy the performance, look, and value of the storied Yenko name, this '69
Camaro is your
opportunity to forgo the time, headache and six figure cost of building one
There's no question that the '69 Camaro is one of the best looking
muscle cars of all time. Throw in a slick coat of correct GM code 72 Hugger
Orange paint and an authentic race-inspired Yenko decal kit, and it becomes
one seriously lust-worthy piece of automotive art. Naturally, all this
car's top notch eye candy rides on a clean and arrow straight body which
presents solid, dent-free panels with better-than-new fit and super narrow
gaps. And its rugged two-stage urethane provides the kind of dynamic finish
and glossy shine that will emphasize the car's power and attitude for years
Lift this Camaro's
bright orange hood and you'll find a date correct iron block 427 which has
been restored to a highly accurate, showroom fresh appearance. At the top
of that block air flows from a correct open element air cleaner, which is
adorned with a new 427 cross-flag decal, into a coated Holley 4-barrel
carburetor and a modern aluminum Chevrolet intake manifold. At the sides of
that intake, spectacular finned aluminum valve covers hang multi-colored
Yenko emblems above fully restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those
valve covers, a rebuilt points distributor sends fire through correct
Packard TV R Suppression wires. Cooling is provided by a Yenko-spec
Harrison heavy duty radiator which sends water through reproduction GM
hoses and fresh tower clamps. And, since this Camaro came with factory equipped
power steering and power disc brakes, an appropriately tagged Delco Moraine
brake Booster hangs on the firewall
and a correct power steering pump is bolted to the left side of the engine
Although you could get a Yenko with a slushbox, the vast majority were
equipped with tough M21 Muncie 4-speeds. And this particular Camaro, which has been upgraded
with a virtually indestructible Borg Warner ST-10, spins a correct 12 bolt
Posi-traction rear end and tire shredding 3.90 gears via a correctly
detailed driveshaft. That rear end hangs on restored leaf springs and brand
new shocks which help give the car its crouching stance; and that
transmission rides just behind a restored double A-arm front suspension
which features fresh shocks, correct factory optioned power steering and
correct factory optioned power disc brakes. At the center of the car, a
thrill inducing soundtrack roars through a fresh Gardner Exhaust system which accurately duplicates the
car's original chambered pipes. And at the corners of the car, era correct
15 inch American Racing Torque Thrust D wheels wear a fresh set of E70-15
Goodyear Wide Tread GTs.
Inside this pristine Yenko tribute, it's 100% Camaro; and that's always a good
thing! Original GM code 713 Black Houndstooth upholstery features an OEM
feel that simply can't be duplicated by today's best restoration products.
An optional Z87 deluxe interior package, which includes unique stainless
trimmed door panels, wood grain dash applique and bright pedal trim, amps
up the visual appeal. And bold "YSC" headrest decals provide just the right
amount of detail to elevate an already impressive cockpit to a whole new
level. In front of the driver, a good looking black dash hangs beautifully
restored gauges, an electric clock and controls for the cars heater above
bright wood grain trim and a correct Delco AM radio. Below that dash, an
optional center console props a completely chrome Hurst short throw shifter
above great looking wood faced and chrome trimmed accent plates. And at the
sides of the seats, black deluxe door panels are decorated with excellent
looking stainless trim and correct white inlayed "Camaro" emblems. Connecting the
driver to the road is a fully restored factory steering wheel which spins a
blue bowtie and great looking wood applique around a factory tilt steering
If a Super Sport is just too ordinary and you really dig the magical appeal
of that storied 4, 2, and 7 number combination, this high quality Yenko is
just what you need! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for

1969 CHEVROLET YENKO CAMARO TRIBUTE FOR SALE UPDATE SOLD!!!!!!!!
Ok, here it is! This is the 2nd video for one extremely nice 1969 Yenko Camaro! This is a
unbelievable beautiful restored car. It has such a beautiful deep blue with
black side stripes with black deluxe houndstooth interior. The paint color
is Viper blue with some Pearl mixed in. The paint is so deep in color I
can't really explain but this paint is damn near perfect. No shortcuts
taken here. This was taken down to bare metal and then fully repainted.
Now that makes for one stunning Camaro.
What makes this a Yenko tribute is the way the car looks and the power
plant. This is a real 427 engine from a 1966 Corvette. It is 425 horsepower with 460 lb ft
torque. This can go 0-60 in 5.7 seconds.
Now the transmission is a M-21 Muncie 4 speed and the rear is the 12 Bolt
Moser rear with 373 posi gear. This car is set up like the original Yenko.
This has no console, no tag plate, not even the bow tie in the front grill.
It has the functional cowl induction like the original. The car has power
front disk brakes with non power manual steering. The car has all the
original style Yenko emblems and also black Yenko stripes. Also when it
comes to the interior instead of the sYc just being a decal on the
headrest's well not here. These are embroidered on. These won't come off or
fade like the decals.
Now for a more aggressive look we decided to NOT install the 15" Torque
Thrust II's like what would have came on the Yenko instead we chose 18"
front and 20" rear Coys wheels. This gives it just a hint of modern spin.
Also there were set of Global technologies set of modern style traction bar
setup to make sure the tires stay on the road as much as possible.
Now to the best part look at the pictures, even the underneath pictures.
Now this Camaro was a
very solid car to begin with and it was a X44 Camaro originally back in 69.
This car was totally taken apart and redone top to bottom, inside and out,
front to back. This is a nut and bolt restore. This car is a NEW car with
less than 2000 miles since finished. The car was completed in January of
2008. Now the entire car has 108,476 original miles since 1969, but again
only has less sthan 2000 miles since being restored.
The paint is PPG Base coat clear coat and is super smooth to the touch and
looks like glass. It was block sanded, wet sanded several times and
finally buffed over and over to a mirror glass shine. The car still retains
most of it's original solid sheet metal and is free of rust and bondo. The
floors and trunk pan was the only sheetmetal replaced. This was because of
some very small pin holes, NOT major rust. We didn't want to take any
shortcuts so they were changed while it recieved it's rotisserie
restoration. This car is super straight. All body lines are the way they
were since it was built. Everything was then put back together with all
reconditioned or new Gm parts like bumpers, bolts/nuts/screws, grill,
emblems, mirrors, brakes, shocks, leaf springs, polyurethane bushings,
spoilers, glass, headliner, seats(yes new foam is in the seats), door
panels, dash pad, radio, carpet, moldings, gauges, weatherstripping, felts,
taillights, lighting, steering wheel, brakes, Exhaust, wheels, tires, rearend, seals,
transmission, 427 engine, rear end the list keeps on going. Nothing, I mean
nothing, was left untouched.
If anyone has ANY questions please feel free to call me directly at
570-875-7109. Thanks, Marty
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #22: 1970 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Deuce
Many people are familiar with the Yenko Camaros, but Don Yenko Chevrolet
was also the source for a variety of high-performance Chevy hot rods. In
this episode, we're spotlighting a 1970 Yenko Deuce Nova, a car that was
thinly disguised as a grocery-getter economy car. In realty, it hid a
screaming LT1 350 under the hood! This particular car from the Brothers
Collection is one of only 10 Hugger Orange Yenko Deuces built, and we take
it for a spin! You can learn more about these awesome cars at
