Default 1968 Camaro - Possible Yenko

Hello all,
I recently purchased a 68 Camaro from its third owner and am looking for some advice on it. It has been garaged since the late 70's. I believe it to possibly be a Yenko or Yenko non converted car. It has the 140 MPH speedometer, larger sway bar, as well as the Magic Mirror trim tag. I looked on the registry of the 68 Camaros listed and the Vin number for this car is very very close to 2 existing cars on there.
Does anyone know of who I can contact to discuss the car with that would be a bit more of an expert than myself?
Thanks,
Dan

Thanks Pete. I'll upload some pics soon on it Crush.
I've been reading a lot of old posts on here while buying this car over the last few days. I see it was mentioned years ago on here about 6 non converted cars that went to Yenko and that 2 were accounted for. I believe this may be a third one as its factory color was Corvette Bronze. It's had one re-paint in the early 70s and the vin number on it is close to a couple of others towards the bottom of the registry.

Likely one of the 5x Bronze cars as this 09/68 Yenko Newspaper Ad below.
If you haven't seen it already, it's from this thread w/ other great '68 Copo 9737 info...

Thanks Pete. Thats what I was thinking. Vin is super close to the other Corvette Bronze one on the registry that's non converted. What's your thoughts on the value of one of these in a restored state? I would imagine it's less than one with the 427 conversion.

Any signs of added emblems including tail panel area and/or Yenko Tag holes?
What of past owners/when it changed hands/where the car lived?
A few of the '68 9737 MV Suffix Blocks have surfaced over the years, maybe yours?
You're best to hook up w/ Eddie, sYc Member Enio45 as he has an unconverted '68 Copo 9737 too.
