• One of the ultimate limited-production ‘60s Supercars
• Stunning performance and legendary image
• The 194th of 201 Yenko Camaros produced in total
• Complete with extensive documentation
• Most desirable factory-original four-speed example

427 cid RPO L-72 V-8 engine, single four-barrel carburetor, 425 HP, Muncie four-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms and coil springs, live Heavy-Duty 12-bolt rear axle, hydraulic front disc and rear drum brakes; wheelbase: 108”


The inspired brainchild of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania’s Don Yenko, one of America’s premier road-racers and high-performance Chevy dealers, the Yenko Camaro remains one of the quickest and most collectible American Supercars of all time. Just 201 of them were built for 1969, with their 425-horsepower L-72 427 engines factory-installed in the cars via Chevy’s infamous COPO (Corporate Office Production Order) back-office ordering system. Normally utilized for large-scale commercial, police, and taxi fleet orders, the COPO system was exploited by Chevy’s Product Promotion Engineering head, Vince Piggins, to help faithful Chevy racers circumvent General Motors’ self-enforced racing ban dating back to 1963, as well as its corporate policy forbidding the factory installation of engines larger than 400 cubic inches in the F-Body Camaro.

Factory-built with both Chevrolet’s COPO 9561 (High-Performance) and 9737 (Sports Car Conversion) packages, the Yenko cars included Chevy’s brutal 425-HP 427-cid L-72 big-block engine plus heavy-duty suspension and cooling systems, ZL2 Cowl Induction hood, power front disc brakes, 4.10:1 Positraction rear axle, 15x7 wheels, E70x15 tires, a 140-mph speedometer, front and rear spoilers, and larger 13/16-inch front anti-sway bar. Following delivery to Yenko Chevrolet, signature finishing touches applied there included a Stewart-Warner tach, custom wheels, unique Yenko “S/C” graphics, stripes, and Yenko “sYc” (signifying “Yenko Super Car”) seat-back accents to provide an unbeatable image and appearance to match its incredible specifications. Yenko also re-labelled the 427 engine’s air-cleaner lid with a more accurate 450-HP rating sticker. Predictably, Yenko Camaro performance was astonishing from the dealer floor with 12-second quarter-mile times easily attainable with basic tricks including open tubular headers, traction bars, and sticky slicks.

Of the six available exterior colors for the ’69 Yenko Camaro, the Daytona Yellow of this outstanding example remains perhaps the most desirable. In addition, it stands tall as a factory-original four-speed car and one of the last of the 201-car series built, being car number 194. When new, this example was shipped from Yenko Chevrolet to Muscatel Chevrolet in Fargo, North Dakota, where it was sold to first owner Darrell Ramstad on October 15, 1969. Last under the careful watch of an expertly managed and curated private collection of the finest American high-performance cars, this Yenko Camaro clearly benefits from complete restoration to as-new original condition, including its Daytona Yellow exterior finish, black vinyl top, and black standard interior, just as the car was delivered new to Don Yenko Chevrolet. In summary, the restoration involved the rebuilding, refinishing, and re-plating of the entire vehicle, and extensive documentation accompanies the sale of this outstanding Yenko Camaro, which is also listed in the Yenko Chevrolet inventory sheets and within the records of the Super Car Registry. Documents and letters from COPO Connection and COPO/Yenko Camaro expert Ed Cunneen include a COPO Connection certificate signed by Mr. Cunneen, plus letters confirming this car’s authenticity, original colors and manual transmission, the vehicle’s order date, shipment from Yenko Chevrolet to Muscatel Chevrolet, and original purchase particulars. A copy of the vehicle’s General Motors shipping order is also included in the documents. Fully restored, very well-preserved, and complete with outstanding documentation, this 1969 Yenko Camaro stands proudly as one of the best of its rare and storied breed.
