LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro
At the height of the muscle car era, many dealers were heavily involved in racing programs; that sometimes rolled over into street cars. Many of the dealers would offer certain packages or add ons to performance cars, Nickey Chevrolet, Berger Chevrolet and Baldwin Motion were great examples, but perhaps the most famous is Yenko Chevrolet. For 1969, utilizing GM’s COPO ordering system, they provided incredible performance in the Camaro with the L72 427 engine, and their own additions. A total of 201 were produced in 1 of 6 available colors.
Presented here is a very nicely restored example of a factory 1969 Yenko Camaro. Sold new at M.B. Francis Chevrolet in Brighton MO, this very well restored factory code 71 LeMans Blue Yenko Camaro with white striping and black interior showcases many of the more popular features. Powered by the prerequisite COPO L72 427 that was factory rated at 425hp, backed by a 4 speed manual transmission. The Yenko SC specific striping and Torque Thrust style wheels give the car the perfect look complemented by the sYc embroidery on the seat backs, finished off with the column mounted suntach and 3 gauge pod under the dash, additions to an otherwise sparse yet purposeful interior. This Yenko Camaro is a great example of the rarest of the rare, a special edition of the extremely sought after COPO Camaro that was an instant legend the day certain folks discovered COPO code 9561. This Yenko Camaro is listed in the Supercar Registry and documenting where it was originally delivered.
With only about 200 ever produced, and most of them used for racing, how many remain? The true answer to that question is anyone’s guess, making this real Yenko that much more special, it would be a great addition to your collection.
