One of the most sought-after Chevrolet Camaros ever made was the "Yenko Camaro." A way of getting around General Motor's stipulation that Camaro's could not have an engine larger than 400ci (6.6-liters), the Camaro Yenko was a dealer-sanctioned custom creation that swapped in the L72 427ci engine from the Corvette. They were named after the racer and dealership-owner that came up with the idea, Don Yenko. While original Yenko Camaros are thin on the ground, tributes like this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, located in Delray Beach, Florida, offer the originals' style and performance in an attainable package.
This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko tribute has undergone a full frame-off restoration to get to the condition you see here. This Camaro is finished in traditional metallic blue with white Yenko stripes. This car has a tilt-adjustable steering column, as well as power steering. The rest of the interior has been kept to mimic the original, including the COPO 9737 140mph speedometer. The Camaro's inside looks to be in remarkable condition, just as the rest of the car.
This Chevrolet Camaro Yenko tribute features the 7.0-liter L72 V8 engine that gave the Yenko Camaro its remarkable performance, with a still-impressive today 425hp. The engine features a new Holley carburetor new aluminum radiator. Power is delivered to rear wheels via an M-22 Muncie 4-speed while stopping power is courtesy of power-assisted brakes with front discs.
