For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin

Vehicle Description

Don Yenko was in the high-performance Camaro business the old-fashioned wayhe bought stock automobiles and modified them. But in 1969 Yenko used his clout with GM to subvert the Central Office Production Order system to his advantage. The result was a line of factory-built 427 Camaros and 427-powered Chevelle sister cars. Yenko added black or white vinyl side and hood graphics headrests with the SYC logo Yenko emblems on the fenders and taillamp panel and offered accessories like a Stewart Warner 970 transistorized tachometer (some later cars used the factory in-dash tach) with accessory water temperature oil pressure and amp gauges; optional cast 15x6 Atlas wheels or exhaust headers.The stuff that came from GM in the Central Office Production Order Camaro package (and the Chevelle) was stout to say the least. Under the cowl induction hood was a 427 engine rated at 425hp by GM or 450hp by Yenko. The L72 used a four-bolt-main cast-iron block a forged crankshaft solid-lifter camshaft 11:1 compression rectangle-port heads with 2.19 intake and 1.72 exhaust valves an aluminum intake and a Holley carburetorSince completion the car has won several awards and accolades. It received the Gold Spinner award in 2008 and the Chevy Vettefest scoring a 995 out of 1000 possible points. In 2012 it was invited to take part in the muscle car and Corvette Nationals Yenko display featuring roughly 65 cars and received the Celebrity Pick Award. In 2013 this Yenko was invited to the Barrington Concours dElegance were it won Best Restoration and was one of three finalists for Best Car in Show. This car was also featured in Muscle Car Review in the fall of 2013 and was shown proudly as the cover car. This Yenko still presents itself in outstanding condition and is still as fresh looking as the day it was completed. Don't miss this opportunity to own what might be the best 1969 Yenko Camaro in the world!
