1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro 427

The 1969 Yenko Camaro 427 was built by Chevrolet but dreamed up by car dealer and renowned bow-tie tuner Don Yenko.
To Ford fans, Carroll Shelby is the high-priest of performance. Chevy loyalists revere a Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, car dealer named Don Yenko. Yenko had a deserved reputation for driving, building, and selling dominating Chevrolets, starting in '65 with well-crafted super Corvairs. He advanced to installing 427-cid Corvette V-8s in '67 and '68 Camaros, performing 118 of the transplants. These $4,200 ponys ran in the low 13s right off his shop floor.

This 1:64 Chevy Yenko Camaro 427 was produced by Racing Champions.
