Described by Super Car Workshop owner and respected Yenko judge and restorer Brian Henderson as “One of the best I have examined in recent years”, this 1969 Yenko Camaro is sure to please any collector. It was assembled the second week of February 1969 in the second run of Yenko production and finished in Hugger Orange with a Black vinyl roof, D80 spoiler, the very rare VE3 body color front bumper and standard Black interior. It carries a correctly dated replacement short block with and a warranty replacement 4-speed transmission The sheet metal, interior, suspension, wheels and all Yenko-specific pieces and components are highly original except for a single repaint in the original Hugger Orange and a comprehensive detailing.
