JoeC:
This could be, I have a name and address for a guy who ran the place where the deuces were converted, but have never been able to contact him. I received his info from George Campbell who ran the Warminster, PA factory. He is still local and is enjoying retirement!

Wonder if John Demmer of Demmer Tool and Die is any relation to Jack Demmer Ford in Wayne, MI (which is right across the street from 2 Ford plants). I once autocrossed with Jack Demmer's son, so they are into cars.

Just to go back to the original topic in this post;

I have seen the paperwork on the '67 Yenko Camaro - YS060, and am 100% convinced that this is a transplanted 410 horsepower 427 car. It says so right on the bill of sale, and has a 'YS' stock number written on the top! The engine transplant cost $450, on an exchange basis. This car has an unbelievable and amazing amount of options as well. Some of the options are from GM, others are dealer delivered, and others are dealer installed. If Vince says that there were only 54 cars produced in '67, then he may not have gotten all of the info from Yenko, because YS060 has info that makes it the real deal!

On the 1967 Yenko YS-7xx numbers. Do we know that Yenko tagged the cars in sequence from YS-701 to YS-760? I was told (by Vince) that the numbers do not follow the build dates of the cars very well. It appears that the number tags were stamped in advance and when a car was built the tag was pulled from a box without concern for what number was on it. Therefore it may be possible that Yenko skipped a few numbers.

It is my belief that Yenko did not give the 67 cars a Yenko tag like the 68 cars. I have inspected the car and interviewed the original owner of car #760. This car has amazing documentation and outside of a repaint to a different color in the early 70's remains as Yenko built it. It is a one owner car with @6k miles from new. I have yet to determine if Yenko ran the Super Camaro program starting with stock #701 through the end, but this car was assigned Yenko stock #760. It as of yet is not been determined that there are non Yenko Super Cars that fall within the boundries of the 701 through 760 numbers, but as of this day it appears not. Can anyone out there shed more light on this tough question?

Joe,
Unfortunately Englishtown did not run AHRA sanctioned races. NHRA is a territorial sanctioning body and would not allow a group such as AHRA or IHRA in at a track that they sanctioned. Ray Morrison ran in AHRA and (I think) NHRA stock classes, Ray told me about how in AHRA you could run different carb options (such as a 2bbl on a 427) which I found very interesting. I think that he ran in Super Stock as well. Ray would have more info I am sure of that. Andrew

Speaking of Englishtown, I can't wait to see the NHRA-Nationals there this weekend.

Andrew:
I am planning on attending the show on Saturday, and will be in a/the tower. I have not been there in 15-16 years, so I don't know how they redid the track. A relative gave me the tickets, and I am really looking forward to the event. It will be nice to not be squashed onto a 2x12 plank, sweating to death, like at Maple Grove!! Dying to see 'The Force' race.
