Default 69 Yenko Camaro - Mecum Houston

https://www.mecum.com/lots/HA0418-32...-yenko-camaro/

Car sold for $95k. Nice car but being a rebody held it down.

Rebody or not, someone took a bath on that car. I would love to own it for that kinda money.

I saw this when I was zooming through what I had recorded. I wondered why it went so cheap.

Looks like a nice car though.

Question I don't understand..??

Just saw this and I must admit...I don't understand.

I was under the impression re-bodies are not a good thing..especially on a rare COPO car. I'm also not sure in this case how much of the car is still the original...just the cowl??

Why would someone want to spend that much money for something that is re-bodied??

Anyway, it looks like a beautiful car...but, I still don't understand??

Ive said this before, and I know its not a popular view, but
I would rather have a "Reproduction" body (or rebody) and original drivetrain than a 454 made to look like a 427 (reproduction if you will) non original motor in a original body car. Within certain circumstances anyway.

I mean if you replace 90% of a car with new metal and the motor non original, other than the VIN how is that the same car?

Of course, I say that and a while back I found my original high school car in a junkyard:





and I went ahead and put 20k in new metal in a 307 car. But it was the first car I kissed a girl in and first car that I owned and bought myself, at 16.



Basically the tulips and the rear package tray are the only original parts on the car.

Conflicted I am.... LoL
