Don Yenko's story is the stuff of legend, and prices on authentic
Yenko Chevrolets bear out his amazing legacy of high performance,
factory-built horsepower. Of his creations, the Yenko Camaro is
perhaps the most famous, setting the stage for the mighty COPO 427
and establishing the first-generation F-body as one of the most
vicious street-going pony cars ever created. But, in a market where
investment grade metal and hobby cars are becoming increasingly
polar, most enthusiasts don't care to drop mortgage-level money on
something that's fit for red ropes and a climate controlled museum.
Instead, the smart hobbyist, who likes to actually drive and enjoy
his classic, buys some well-done muscle like this exceptional
Daytona Yellow tribute. Backing a correct 427 with traditional
aesthetics and restoration that exhibits excellent attention to
detail, this Chevy is the ultimate combination of heritage and fun.
Are you one of the growing number of enthusiasts who wants to
actually enjoy the performance, look, and value of the storied
Yenko name? Your Super Car awaits!
One can't help but smile when they look at a Camaro this cool.
Assembled in Norwood, Ohio, it's everything car guys dream of from
the first time they say "muscle car" to the day they trade their
high octane V8 for an electric rascal motor. Decked in vivid
Daytona Yellow two-stage and displaying a traditional array of
Yenko Super Car stripes, this Chevy is the product of a detailed,
ground-up restoration that was completed to very high standards.
Its profile is a carefully orchestrated combination of excellent
panel gaps, smooth pivot points and glossy pigment that stretches
from tip to tail. And presently, the car rolls as one high quality
head turner that sets the standard for any pony car that dare show
its face at the same cruise night!
The overall look of this F1 is beyond factory fresh. And thanks to
an astute attention to detail, the car has the kind of killer
eyeball appeal that makes casual by-standers stop and take notice.
At the front of its body, a monochromatic grille hangs traditional
halogen headlights above a restoration-fresh bumper, clear parking
lamps and a reinforced D80 chin spoiler. Above that grille, a
familiar Camaro header leads a familiar Cowl Induction Hood that's
finished with bright "427" emblems. Behind those emblems, like-new
glass is cleared by satin wipers, topped with fresh drip rails and
trimmed in polished frames. A sculpted profile floats standard
rocker trim beneath factory mirrors, factory door handles, factory
"Camaro" scripts and colorful "Yenko" badging that perfectly
complements optional quarter louvers. And at the back of the car, a
Camaro-branded decklid hangs a second D80 spoiler over segmented
taillights, a second restoration-fresh bumper, and artful "Yenko"
and "427" badges.
While the exterior of the famed Yenko Camaros is a story all its
own, what really made these cars special is what lived between
their fenders. Lift this Chevy's functional Cowl Induction Hood and
you'll find 427 cubic inches of date-correct big block that's been
restored to a highly detailed, show worthy appearance. At the top
of that hot mill, a painted and decaled air cleaner drops breeze
through a correct LIST 4346 Holley, which feeds a date-correct
Winters intake. At the sides of that intake, mirrored valve covers
tilt handsome, multi-color Yenko decals over iron Chevrolet heads.
At the back of those covers, a rebuilt points distributor sends
fire through familiar Packard TV R Suppression cables, which snake
around coated Hooker Competition headers. Traditional V-belts spin
a modern alternator beside factory-style power steering. Cooling
comes courtesy of a heavy duty radiator, which funnels water
through reproduction GM hoses and fresh tower clamps.
Aesthetically, the Satin Black engine compartment is impressively
clean and, for the most part, looks straight out of Don Yenko's
Pennsylvania showroom. Bright Chevy Orange block skin is just the
finishing touch to make you want to pop the lid as soon as you park
the car. And since this Camaro has been restored with GM's optional
JL8 4-wheel power disc brakes, an appropriate booster is present
and accounted for.
Unlike some builders, Yenko welcomed both manual and automatic cars
into his vast empire of tuner treasures. And this particular
tribute utilizes a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed to
effortlessly apply power to a requisite 12-bolt axle. That
drivetrain rides a restored factory suspension, which features
factory power steering and the aforementioned optional power disc
brakes. A thrill-inducing soundtrack fills big pipes, an H-shaped
crossover and throaty Flowmaster mufflers. At the corners, American
Racing Torq Thrust Ds spin 215/65R15 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs. And
overall, this Chevy's fully restored chassis is completely sorted
and ready to hit the road!
Between the doors, this pristine tribute is 100% Camaro, and that's
always a great thing! Correct Black Standard upholstery creates a
retro ambiance that simply can't be matched by the leather-clad
cockpits of modern cars. Naturally, factory seats feature bold
"YSC" headrests. In front of those thrones, a wood-look dash hangs
beautifully restored telemetry above a correct AM radio and crisp
Auto Gage accessory gauges. At the center of the floor, a wood-look
console traces a traditional Horseshoe Shifter. Pick-free side
panels cage fade-free carpet. A tight headliner frames old school
shoulder belts. And the driver carves curves through a traditional,
wood-look steering wheel that laps a traditional, tilting
If a Super Sport is just too ordinary, and you really dig the
magical appeal of that storied 4, 2, and 7 number combination, this
high quality Yenko is just what you need! Restoring a Camaro to the
show worthy level of this classic involves years of challenge and
cost. And even if you started today, it would be a long time before
your project began to resemble anything close to a finished car.
