The impression I get is it is still in the hands of the family friend it was given/sold to after the owner died. But not sure.

I am surprised to see they used 201 as the number for the 1969 Yenko Camaro production total.

The 201 number is a 40 year old mistake.

In the early 1980ís Vince E. acquired the original Yenko records. He at first counted 201 vins that he thought were 1969 Yenko Camaros but a short time later he changed his number to 198. The 198 number has some questions on it due to some discrepancies, but the 198 number has been used since the 1980ís.

The 201 number has no historical basis other then being an often repeated mistake.
