For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1969 Chevrolet Camaro - 427ci V8 - 4 Speed Manual Transmission - New Clutch and Throwout Bearing - 3.73 Gears - New Ceramic Coated Headers - New 4 Core Radiator - Green Over Black Interior During the 1960's, creative and intuitive dealerships began making performance related modifications on new cars or cars that customers would bring back to the dealerships for proven upgrades. One of the most famous was Yenko Chevrolet, located in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Don Yenko managed the company in 1950 and entered the performance car market with a series of race-prepared Corvettes and worked into full conversion jobs they based on other Chevrolet models. Yenko worked closely with Chevrolet engineers and was Chevrolet's answer to Ford and their relationship with Carrol Shelby and Shelby America. The first Yenko model was the 1965 Corvair Stinger. It had more power, a better suspension and sharper handling and a success on the racetracks, drawing attention of the performance car public. With Chevy's introduction of the Camaro in 1967, Yenko started converting them to 427 V8 power. They sold the Camaros as Yenko Super Cars. Modified with more power, wild graphics and a long list of options. It made Yenko Camaros a popular choice for a custom 427 V8 conversion on a SS Camaro. Besides Camaros, Yenko produced Chevelles, Novas and Vegas that all came with the signature stripes and crazy visual packages. One of Yenko's crowning achievements came in 1969 when Yenko, who was tired of selling Camaros with limited warranties because of his modifications had convinced Chevy to add a 427-equipped Camaro to its special equipment ordering system, known as COPO. This addition of the 427-equipped Camaro to COPO made it possible for Yenko to sell these cars with the GM-standard 5-year or 50,000-mile warranty and heavily marketed these cars nationwide. The total number of COPO Camaros produced and sold is unknown, but has been rumored as anywhere from 500 to 1,000 and of these Yenko ordered a grand total of 198 of the Camaro 427s available through the COPO program. Naturally with the rarity and desirability of these cars the prices have soared for these Yenko prepped COPO Camaros with the Hagerty Valuation Tool valuing these cars from $233,000 - $469,000 depending on condition. Featured here for sale is a very well prepped Tribute to the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko, which is far more affordable solution to owning one of these rare cars and feel comfortable driving.
