For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

We all know Don Yenko knew how to get the meanest machines that weren't even on the regular menu at GM. That's why it's exciting to see this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko Tribute. It's an exceptionally detailed restoration, and it's so fresh that the 12-mile odometer represents its mileage since completion! So since they took the extra time and investment to make such a detailed car, you should take the extra time looking over the big block power, four-on-the-floor, and fresh components that let you know what it feels like to drive one of Don's cars right off the lot.

Hugger Orange is the kind of color that gets noticed. It was available across the Chevy lineup in 1969, but it was really mostly reserved for the power cars. So when you see the boldness at any car show, it immediately gets your heart racing. This only gets better on such a freshly restored coupe where the iconic color has such a high-gloss radiance that it can be spotted from across a parking lot. So don't be surprised if this car feels like it has its own gravity when you take it to cars & coffee. Plus the Yenko cars had the best stripes around. Up front, it showcases the functional cowl hood while also looking like it's pointing the car forward. And the side stripes get thicker at the rear to remind you where the power meets the pavement. More than just the mean-looking Yenko S/C style, take some time to look at the full restoration. The fit of the panels, completeness of the trim, the cleanliness of the glass, and the mirror-like glow of the bumpers make a build that's ready for a photo shoot from the moment you hit the streets. You may notice that this has been prepped for Yenko fender badges. It's a readily available component that reminds you about how fresh this is, and it even needs some final prep pieces completed. And as you look over the full package, you'll be impressed by their level of thoughtfulness. For example, some of the best Yenko cars came with American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels. Not only do you have these here, but they also sit on classic-style Goodyear Polyglas raised white letter tires. And the whole package has a clean style that can make your garage feel like the Yenko showroom.

The interior has that ideal power car feeling. Everything looks clean, black, and fresh, including the door panels, carpeting, and dash panel. It looks like a detailed restoration, right down to the gauges that look as clear as day one. There's also something else here that Yenko fans love to see: a weight-saving diet. Yenko's COPO cars deleted everything they possibly could to be the lightest, fastest, and meanest cars on the streets. So there was no air conditioning, vanity mirrors, center consoles, or anything else that was nice for passengers but ate away at the driving experience. Instead, a Yenko car focused on getting you to bond directly with the car through the grip of the steering wheel and the crisp action of the Hurst shifter.

The engine bay is stuffed with big block power. You'll love spotting the details, like the Yenko decals, polished valve covers, and classic Delco battery topper. All the detailed work is easy to see because the motor is just as fresh as the rest of the build. The pan around the air grabber helps seal this to the fresh air cowl hood, and the cooler air delivers more power to the four-barrel carburetor. This sits atop a correct-style GM Winters intake. It all helps add extra power and rumble to the year-correct 396 cubic-inch V8. This has been built to be a power car, and so the four-speed manual transmission is ideal to keep you in firm control. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are good for performance driving or afternoon cruising.

Fresh, bold, and powerful, this one knows how to present a Yenko spirit. So if you're looking for a legend, call today!
