Description
Lot #1277 - 1 of 30 built with the 427/425hp engine with an automatic in Fathom Green. As a young man back in the 1950s and 1960s, Don Yenko learned the Chevrolet car and truck industry from his father, a very successful man in the industry. Both Yenkos liked Chevrolet performance, and road racing was Don's forte. Knowing how to manipulate the almost unknown factory "Central Office Production Order" (COPO) program, he first ordered some special '65 Corvairs, named them Yenko Stingers, and went road racing with customers and friends alike. Today, they are legendary. His name is also legendary in Camaro, Chevelle, and Nova camps by creating some of the baddest rides on the streets in the late 60's. This 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. Yenko Camaros also received COPO 9737 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. The originating dealer for this car was Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, PA and then transferred to Hult Chevrolet in Madison, WI on 3/26/69. Features a dual gate Hurst shifter, Yenko tachometer, Yenko gauges and the correct drivetrain. This car is a 10 time show winner including First Place Award, Best Interior, Outstanding Restoration, Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Antique Restoration, Best of Show and Gold Spinner two times. Documented by COPO Connection and has Yenko dealer invoice, judging sheets and owner's registrations. From the Gary Holub Collection. This car has been rebodied.
