1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro

I remember when I sold one for a record price of $30,000. I’m sure
someone called the buyer a lunatic for paying so much

Don Yenko was the major Chevrolet performance dealer for many years, and was instrumental in laying the groundwork for the 427 Camaro. He converted numerous cars to 427-cid engines before planning a new “Super Car” distributorship for the 1969 model year. Knowing that demand would outstrip his ability to perform all the labor and time-intensive engine swaps, he convinced Chevrolet to build a quantity of 427 Camaros.
Yenko sent these cars to various shops to receive the special emblems, decals, stripes and other options. Fitted with the standard Camaro coupe trim and steel wheels, the muscle car had a deceptively sober appearance, given away only by the rumble of the Z-28 dual exhaust. All 1969 Yenko Camaros received a spoiler to complement the Yenko stripe design, along with special badges, decals and headrests lettered “sYc” for “Yenko Super Cars.”
The Yenko Camaro presented here is fully documented and complete with the COPO certificate from Ed Cunneen. It received a full restoration by Brian Henderson of the Super Car Workshop, while the interior was found to be in excellent condition and left as original. It has won numerous awards, including Best of Show at the 1998 U.S. Camaro Nationals.
With only 17,000 documented original miles, this powerful Yenko Camaro’s 427 produces 450 hp, coupled to the M-21 four-speed transmission and 4.10 BE-coded 12-bolt rear axle. Finished in striking Rally Green, this car will complement even the most discriminating collector’s stable.
