Rare 1969 Yenko Camaro Will Roll Across The Auction Stage

This Rare 1969 Yenko Camaro Is Going Under The Hammer!

Updated October 3, 2018

1969 was one of the biggest production years for the Yenko Camaro COPO (Central Office Production Order) program with approximately 200 sold. This Camaro, that is heading to auction next month in Indianapolis, is more rarefied than most due to one specific feature. This car is equipped with an automatic transmission and has been authenticated by the Yenko registry as COPO 9651. This Camaro has been verified as being one of only six 69 Yenko Camaros produced that were equipped with an automatic verses a four speed manual transmission.

The transmission is propelled by a 427 cubic inch big-block Chevy motor that was originally designed for the Corvette. The engine is equipped with a four-barrel Holly carb, high duration solid lifters and an aluminum intake manifold that accommodates the 425 horsepower output.

The COPO Sports Car Conversion Package also upgraded several performance features in the interior, on the exterior and improved the braking power. The interior received a 140 mile per hour speedometer, a two-gauge cluster and a Hurst Dual Gate floor shifter. The exterior was dressed up with a black vinyl top, D80 front and rear spoilers and a Yenko striping package. Torque Thrust wheels with Yenko center caps were fitted with F70-15 Goodyear Polyglas tires. The stopping power was increased by adding power front disc brakes.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
