When I restored Dana Hurt's YS8011 I did a lot of research on this. Don did not like to promote the SS so he often times removed the SS emblems on the fenders and painted the gas cap black. There is more to that story that I am not recalling right now but that is what I found. Dana's cap was painted and his SS emblems had been removed during Yenko's conversion and all was verified during the restoration.

"This Corvette Bronze 68 Yenko Camaro is 124378N472062 and YS-8051. It was sold new at Luby Chevrolet in Miami FL. This car has an M21 with 4.10 gears and was advertised as having 4K original miles. It was restored by Camaro Specialties for Bill Wertheim. It scored 999 points at the American Camaro Association meet in Carlisle in '05 and was featured in the October '08 issue of Musclecar Enthusiast. It was part of Tom Abrams collection and sold for $370K at Mecum Indy in '22."
