Yenko Super Camaro 450
Chassis #: 124377N229158
Sold for $350,000 at 2013 Gooding and Company - The Amelia Island Auction.
The 1960s, for better or worse, were all about breaking rules and graying areas of black and white. Don Yenko would be one such man that would make a living and become quite famous living in this area of ambiguity. The result of his work in this area would be, unequivocally, the best line of Camaros ever to be built.

Yenko Chevrolet was first founded all the way back in 1934 under Donald's father. By 1957, Don Yenko was already a regular on the racing scene and would decide to set up his own performance shop specifically intended for Chevrolet vehicles. At the shop, customers could either order high performance parts and install them themselves, or, could employ Yenko's own mechanics to make performance improvements.

Yenko would soon begin to produce his own modified versions of Chevrolet cars. His first would be 'The Stinger' and it would be a modified version of the Corvair. Around 185 would be believed to be sold over a two year period between 1965 and 1967. And then Chevrolet introduced the Camaro.

The Camaro certainly looked the part of a muscle car but had a problem. The Corvette was Chevrolet's flagship sportscar and it did the company no good to have another car boasting of the same kind of power and performance. Therefore, the company would set limits on the Camaro. One of those limits would include no engine greater than 400 cu.in. ever being placed inside of the Camaro. Unfortunately for Chevrolet, the Camaro was to compete with the Ford Mustang, Plymouth Barracuda and Dodge Dart. Neither one of these would have such a restriction placed upon them. So, the Camaro was at a disadvantage. Yenko would therefore determine to rectify the situation.

As he had with the Corvairs that become the 'Stinger', Yenko would begin taking first generation Camaros and would start the process of turning them into ultra-muscle cars. The starting point for Yenko and his crew would be where Chevrolet wanted to end things. He would take delivery of the same 7.0-liter L-72 V-8 that powered the Corvette and would begin placing them inside the Camaro. The changes would just begin there.

Besides the engine, Yenko would have a fiberglass hood fitted to the Camaro and would have a 4-speed Muncie M21 Close-Ratio manual gearbox placed inside the car's chassis in order to deliver all of the 450 hp to the wheels. Finally, Yenko would re-work the suspension on the car. An independent double-wishbone front suspension would be used while a live rear axle with Semi-Elliptical Leaf Springs would be used at the rear.

Called the Yenko Super Camaro, the first examples would roll out the same year as the Camaro would be made public in 1967. In all, there would be only 54 examples of the Yenko Super Camaro built. While there would be just 54 examples ever built, even fewer, just about 10, still remain.

One of those ten, chassis 124377N229158, would be made available for purchase at the Gooding & Company auction held in Amelia Island in March of 2013. Heading to auction, this particular Yenko Super Camaro would be drawing estimates ranging from $375,000 and $450,000, and there would be good reason.

Delivered as an Ermine White L78 SS, the car would be immediately sent to the Dick Harrell Peformance Center in St. Louis, Missouri where it would become a Super Camaro. It would be transformed into a Super Camaro 450, the most powerful model offered during the first year of production.

Throwing in the L72 engine wasn't a straight-forward matter, and therefore, required the addition of the Muncie M21 gearbox, a heavy-duty clutch, larger radiator and a 12-bolt Posi-Traction rear end. Besides these rather necessary updates, the Camaro would also receive disc brakes on the front and tuned exhaust headers. The car would even get an NHRA-approved scatter shield.

Completed with the desirable Rally Sport trim, center console, push-button AM radio and walnut grained steering wheel, this particular Yanko Super Camaro would be highly-desirable for looks, comfort and performance.

By August of 1967, this Super Camaro would be one of a group of six Yenko Camaros that would be headed to Jay Kline Chevrolet of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the last couple of decades four well-respected owners have cared for and preserved the car. One such owner of this particular Yenko Camaro is Kevin Suyadam. Suyadam is well-known as having one of the finest collections of factory and dealer-prepared muscle cars.

Having had a restoration performed by the famed Dave Tinnell of Dave's Auto Service of Edmonton, Kentucky, the Yenko Camaro remains faithful to its original specifications and has since been invited to many exclusive Camaro and Yenko gatherings. Bob McClurg would also feature this very Camaro very prominently in his work Yenko: The Man, the Machines, the Legend.

Boasting of numerous documents including original work orders, shipping order and numerous other invoices, this Camaro comes about as complete as one would ever find. Combine all of this with the fact that the car still retains its numerous and rare high-performances options, Rally Sport trim, and the fact there are only about 10 still remaining and this 1967 Super Camaro 450 just might have to be considered the finest example of the first generation Camaro known to still exist.

Sure enough, as the car rolled across the block on March 8th, its distinctive qualities would be recognized and the car would end up going for the price of $350,000.

Yenko Super Camaro 450
Chassis #: 124377N229158
Sold for $350,000 at 2013 Gooding and Company - The Amelia Island Auction.
Only 54 examples of the Yenko Super Camaro were built in 1967 and approximately 10 are known to survive today. To passersby, the Yenko Camaro gave few outward signs that this $5,000 Coupe was any different from a showroom stock 396 SS. One of the most noticeable give-a-ways was its fiberglass Corvette-style 'stinger' hood, complete with quick-release racing pins and Chevrolet 427 badging.

This Yenko Camaro was originally delivered as an Ermine White L78 SS and immediately shipped to the Dick Harrell Performance Center in St. Louis, Missouri. From there, the stock Camaro was transformed into a Super Camaro 450. The original 396 SS engine was replaced with a 450 horsepower L72 mechanical-lifter 427 that had 11:1 compression, a 780 cfm Holley four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum dual-plane intake, and free-flowing dual exhausts. A Muncie M21 close-ratio gearbox, heavy-duty clutch, larger-capacity radiator, custom-designed suspension, metallic brakes, and a 12-bolt Posi-Traction rear end with a 3.73:1 rear axle were also installed.

This Super Camaro 450 was also given front disc brakes, tuned exhaust headers, traction bars, 15-inch steel wheels, and an NHRA-approved scatter shield. It is also one of the few examples that had the Rally Sport trim, which included a center console, walnut grained steering wheel, and push-button AM radio.

On August 1 of 1967 the completed Super Camaro 450 was sold in a group of six Yenko Camaros to Jay Kline Chevrolet of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This first-year Yenko Camaro has had four caretakers over the past two decades. Kevin Suyadam has a collection of cars that includes the finest factory- and dealer-prepared muscle cars, and this car was once part of that collection. Noted Yenko collectors Gary Holub and Wayne Schmeeckle also owned this vehicle.

The car was given a restoration by Dave Tinnell of Dave's Auto Service in Edmonton, Kentucky. Since the work was completed, the car has been invited to many exclusive Camaro and Yenko gatherings and was featured in Bob McClurg's Yenko: The Man, the Machines, the Legend.
