Been waiting for pictures to surface of it at the show. Was really hoping to make it and see it for myself but my son decided to make an entrance into the world a bit sooner than expected lol.

Looks pretty original. Would make for an easy resto but I could see this being one of those “do I or don’t I” type situations. This would for sure have been helpful to see in our restoration of the 668616 FG Yenko that also is an automatic car. I appreciate the pics everyone has shared thus far just wish I coulda been there to see it in person lol

I spoke with who I believe is the owners wife. She told me that they removed the rear Yenko emblem after they saw someone else messing with it. She indicated that their plan was to not restore the car.

It's great that they took it to the show for others to see and hopefully they will keep it inside somewhere

Was cool checking it out today.

I heard the floors in it need work it was sitting in mud for a while. But the exterior sheetmetal looked decent.

When I walked around it yesterday, I notice the rear emblem was hanging half loose and was wondering if it would fall off. If someone had tried to steal it, that's just shameful...


Yeah, after hearing the history of the car being parked outside for so long, the body is quite solid. There is evidence of past rust and filler in it around the rear wheel openings and the front fenders, so it would need more than a cursory buff out to be nice, but it is very complete and original appearing.

That would be a bummer. The car deserves to have the mechanical refreshed/restored and make the car driveable. It is way too cool to let it continue to sit and waste away.

From my conversation I understood it to mean a mechanical refurbish and drive it was in the plans. Iím guessing the owner will chime in at some point

Alright !! That would be fitting and cool. I'm sure enough Supercar people asked him to join...

There were two Fathom Green 69 Yenkos from the same area that have been posted
I believe the one in the top photo was restored
The one in the lower photo was at the show

I spoke with both the husband and wife who currently own the car. They pulled it out from the yard and stored it for the owner for many years….something like 20 years. He’s wanted to by the car from the owner the whole time and the owner finally sold it to them a few weeks prior to the show. IIRC

They are on the fence when considering restoring the car but for now, they plan on getting it road worthy and just driving the car. They were very nice people and happy to tell the story….over and over again.

That car had a LOT of attention! There was a Hemi Daytona in the middle isle just in front of it…..and as rare as that Daytona is, it got no where near the attention of the Yenko.
