Default 427 Out of a Known Yenko Camaro?

Growing up in the south hills of Pittsburgh, a guy up the road had a beautiful 1969 Chevelle with a 427. Saw a couple weeks ago that he got the 427 out of a Yenko Camaro that his buddy had before he sold it. He said that the Camaro is in the Cliff Ernst collection now? I was thinking that the 427 would be worth a pretty decent buck to match up with the original Camaro. I'd imagine some of you are familiar with the Camaro. Here are some screen shots of the Chevelle, Camaro and our conversation.

As far as the story goes, I have no doubt that it's true at I've known Mike Blackburn's family for years and he's pretty well known in the gear head circles in the south hills of Pgh.

Now that is a great story if the car/engine re-unite.

Original engine already reunited as this 2006 article or a different car?

I'm going to copy that article to Mike and see if he has the L88 in his Chevelle. Wild.

OK, I talked to Mike and sent him that article. Yes, his engine has already been reunited with the Camaro in that article. Good news and bad I guess.

Cliff owned another gold Yenko project at one time but has sold it. It is possible that it could have belonged the the other car but he has had the original motor for the gold road test car ever since he purchased the car.

All good Mark and there is no bad if the car and original engine are back together!
Yenko delivered w/ the Atlas Rims is cool alone but being the actual Magazine Drag test car Hendricks did the 11.94 with makes this car more than special!
