The true “Yenko” parted ways with this world decades ago, but that hasn’t meant a lack of Yenko products. However, Brand New Muscle Car and General Marketing Capital, which owns the rights to the licensing rights to Yenko, plans for something really special.
To mark 50 years of Yenko Camaros, BNMC plans for a limited run of continuation cars. That’s right, brand-new 1968 Yenko Camaros built in 2018. The Camaros will be custom built and officially licensed Yenko Camaros. They will also be added to the Official Yenko Worldwide Registry for authenticity.
BNMC didn’t provide specific details on what the continuation Yenko Camaros will feature, but we can expect a 450-horsepower L72 427 ci big-block V8 engine—the calling card for Yenko Camaros. Originally, engine displacement was limited to 396 ci, which made the Yenko Camaro a true performance star in its day. In total, just 64 Yenko Camaros were built and sold in 1968. Final productions numbers sit in the hundreds
It’s unclear how many Camaros BNMC will build, but we have a feeling the supply will be short, and the demand quite high.
