Back in the ‘60s, dealership owner and racecar driver Don Yenko got to upgrading Chevrolet Corvairs. His rear-engined ‘Yenko Stingers’ became a performance hit, so when the Camaro debuted in 1967, Yenko began tuning-up Chevy’s youthful pony car with roaring 427 big blocks and heavenly results – enter the Yenko Super Camaro.
Oddly though, dealership records don’t indicate that this Camaro was ever built into one of the legendary Super Camaros. Instead, it was sold a year after arriving at the dealership, begging the question, ‘Why?’ Many speculate it was used as a development mule to test the Yenko 427 conversion. Amazing if true, but that can’t be verified.
