Default 1973 "427" Yenko Camaro

Have known about this car for over 20 years, a couple of weeks ago the original owner and his lovely wife were kind enough to allow the Clary family to become the new owners of this most unique and one of a kind car.

congrats on the find
is the car a 4 speed or auto?

the body modifications look like what was used on the IMSA and IROC Camaros in 1973 and into the later 1970's


Don was listed as a co driver on this IMSA Camaro

This car, with all of its original paperwork, was purchased from the original owner October 11, 2019. The original owner purchased the car through Jay Kline Chevrolet Co. Minneapolis, MN on 8-9-1973, as a new car, complete with warranty book, owner’s manual, and Yenko Tech manual. The original invoice from Jay Kline showed the "Yenko 427 conversion" costing $2500.00 with a total price of $7832.32. Starting with a new 1973 Camaro Coupe in Dark Green, with Rally Sport and Z28 options, the car was then highly modified, including a 427/450 solid lifer engine with aluminum heads, air cleaner with special seal that mates to hood with ram-air ducts in openings behind grille, Yenko Super GT Hydro 400 HD transmission with remote cooler, shift kit and 727 pickup tube and filter, Chevrolet heavy duty 12 bolt positraction rear end with 3:73 gears and C-clip eliminators, steel hood with fiberglass cowl induction added, one piece steel front end, Trans Am type front fender air extractors, front and rear fender flares, front and rear spoilers, extended trunk and modified rear jump seat, 150 speedo, cable driven tach, aluminum wheels with B.F. Goodrich 60 series tires and 427 emblems front and rear Special Yenko badging included; gold tone Yenko emblems on tail panel, glove box, and tach, Don Yenko Sportscar ID plate on the left door front pillar post, emissions decal on core support, Don Yenko Sposrtscars decal on air cleaner lid, decal on core support warning regarding aluminum heads, decals on door stating prototype does not meet Federal emissions or safety standards, special jacking instructions under trunk lid because of modified front end. As equipped the prototype went 0-60 in under 5 seconds and had mile times in the low 13s.
