This outstanding 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Custom “Yenko 427 Re-Creation” is a true star with its correct show quality restoration and media exposure. This special example was a featured on Power Block TV with Courtney Hanson and on Jake Owen’s music video “Days of Gold”. It was also a Goodguys “Mighty Muscle” award winner. As the VIN number indicates this vehicle was built in Norwood, OH as a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro 2-door Coupe with an 8 cylinder engine. As the trim tag indicates it was a “Special Paint” color and from the information gathered it was originally Rallye Green. It was the product of a meticulous rotisserie restoration which was built as close to an original Yenko Super Car as possible. The build was completed around 2010 and has 385 miles since completion. Since it was finished it’s been stored properly and appears very fresh. Great attention to detail is evident throughout this entire car. If you’re looking for the next best thing to a real 1969 Yenko Camaro you’ve found it. Right here, right now.
