Frank is doing a few final details including electrical check to the car. Like most guys going to Chicago...everyone is putting the final touches on their cars before heading to MCACN in Chicago. We will be on display on the corner in the Day2 section along with a Yenko Stinger Corvair presented by Andy Snetselaar of the Albaugh collection. Please stop by and see our Yenkos on display and say hello ...we enjoy this incredible show. Bob puts on the Super Bowl of muscle car shows and it is ran like a well oiled machine.

Doug

I know your Yenko paperwork shows G70x15 tires

I was wondering what you have for a tire decal in the glove box ?

was the original there?

Hi Joe. Since John painted the car .... The tire decal in the glove box was gone. As we all try to understand Don Yenkos method of organized madness we assumed this was a detail that was never corrected and the original decal would’ve been for the 14 inch tires was our educated guess. I am sorry I could not be more helpful.

Default Tires

Joe I spoke to John this evening in regards to the tires and this was his response and his recollection when he first saw the car at Yenko. When you look at the second page of my documentation and it is all factory options and the tires are on that page.

Not to beat a dead horse but I seem to remember the 15 wheels were on the car when I first looked at it
Ron Lane(original salesman) pointed out that it had the z28 wheels
That was a selling point for me .

The 1967 Yenko wheel size is still a mystery as some information and original owners have said 14in and some 15in.

The 15in wheel was listed as a Yenko option but not sure if Yenko was able to get the 15 in wheel from the factory

I am not sure if the special order trim tag on some 67 Yenkos is tied in to the wheel size but some of the 67 Yenkos have the special order trim tag code and some don't

still working on it
