Description
Lot #1278 - This Daytona Yellow Yenko Camaro was 1 of 3 Camaros personally sold by Don Yenko to racers for use in NHRA Drag Racing programs and is the only known survivor according to the COPO Connection. The other two cars were Hedrick's 4-speed Yenko and Gemler Auto's automatic Yenko. Called the Preston and Lawrence race car, this car was purchased on April 4, 1969, by Lester Lawrence of Montclair, NJ. Don Yenko personally signed off on the sale's contract. Stock number #9616 was purchased for $4,519 and was Daytona Yellow with automatic transmission, power steering and the added options of a Hurst Shift Gate shifter and the black vinyl roof. The 1969 Yenko Camaro was a limited production vehicle equipped from the factory with COPO 9561, a special performance package including a L72 427/425hp engine, special ducted hood, dual exhaust system, increased cooling capacity and special suspension. It was specifically engineered for drag race competition. Yenko Camaros also received COPO 9737, a sports car conversion which included a 140 mph speedometer, larger diameter 13/16" front stabilizer bar and 15 x 7 Rally wheels with E70 raised white lettered tires. This car is one of the most papered vehicle and it has Don Yenko's name on the documentation including the original dealer package file from Yenko Chevrolet signed off by Don Yenko himself, purchase order, Bill of Sale, car invoice, shipper sheet two letters from Warren Dernoshek who did the work for Yenko and rescued the paperwork from the trash, and paperwork from COPO Connection and Yenko Chevrolet. This 1969 Yenko Camaro is the most papered car the owner has ever seen and he has owned over 44 Yenko cars. From the Gary Holub Collection.
