Virtually every Chevrolet fan knows Yenko Chevrolet in McMurray, Pennsylvania created some of the most badass 60s and 70s muscle cars ever unleashed on American streets. What most folks dont know is Yenko tried once again in 1981 to perfect one of GMs best performance platforms, and by most accounts, was wildly successful. Featuring factory air conditioning, a full array of modern conveniences, excellent gas mileage and a 14 second quarter mile time, the 1981 Yenko Turbo Z was celebrated by enthusiasts across the country and even dubbed The Ultimate Camaro by Hot Rod Magazine. Unfortunately Yenkos great intentions, and enthusiasts great interest, werent enough to outweigh the Turbo Zs steep $11K Stage I and $17.5K Stage II sticker prices; and the result was a complete build that amounted to only 19 cars. By the time this Turbo White Camaro, supposedly the last Turbo Z ever sold, rolled off of the showroom floor it was packaged with a signed production intent letter (pictured) that had been hand altered by none other than Don Yenko himself.

The cars 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 Yenkos original goal, he decided to take a trip to the showroom in hopes of picking up a future collectible. According to the salesman, this particular Turbo White car was the last Turbo Z the dealership would build or sell, and only still sat on the showroom floor because it had been a magazine test car and public relations showpiece. 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 condition. And the result is a 25,553 mile piece of automotive history which is ready to be rolled into a museum or trailered to an exclusive Chevrolet show!

Unlike its 60s and 70s forefathers, the 1981 Yenko Camaro wasnt equipped with vaguely placed vinyl stripes and large plastic emblems; but thanks to bold call-outs and striking aerodynamic enhancements, it doesnt take much more than a passing glance to realize this isnt just any old Z28. At the front of the car, a correctly painted plastic grille hangs a tri-color Z28 emblem between clear front headlights, parking lights which mimic the look of earlier second generation Camaros and an optional Yenko Stage II competition air dam. On the front of that air dam, a Yenko Turbo Z call-out perfectly complements tri-color striping which flows over the cars exaggerated front wheel spoilers. And at the top of that grille, a functional hood scoop, which modernizes the cowl induction look the Camaro Z/28 pioneered 12 years earlier, is branded with Yenko-exclusive turbocharged decals. At the back of that hood, pristine factory glass is bordered by original code B77 and code B89 stainless black window trim which is as straight as the day it left the factory ...For more information please call the seller.
