Like many performance enthusiasts in the ‘60s, racer-turned-dealer Don Yenko was left unsatisfied by General Motors’ self-imposed engine size limit for the Chevrolet Camaro. In response, he created the Yenko Super Camaro, permanently etching his name into the muscle car history books. These days, an original Yenko Camaro can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction. Luckily, there are alternatives – such as the gorgeous 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko recreation featured here.
This particular vehicle was the recipient of a complete rotisserie restoration, and looks fantastic both inside and out. The body panels are covered in Corvette Bronze paint, while the Rally Sport package adds extra aggression. There’s also new trim and chrome bits, new weather stripping, and new glass.
A dual snorkel fiberglass hood, front and rear spoilers, and Rallye steel wheels with Yenko center caps complete the look. Even the fully restored undercarriage is spotless, with a GM satin black finish to top it off.
This Chevrolet Camaro’s interior is new as well, and comes finished in black. A 140-MPH speedometer, tachometer, and Stewart Warner gauges are on deck for instrumentation, while the three-spoke, wood-trimmed steering wheel boasts a Yenko steering wheel center cap.
Under the hood of this Chevrolet Camaro is the venerable 427 V8 engine, which comes with an aluminum intake, chrome valve covers, and a Holley carburetor. The Muncie M21 four-speed transmission sends power to a 12-bolt rear axle, while a Hurst shifter swaps the cogs. Power front disc brakes haul it all down.
Now, this gorgeous 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko recreation is up for sale by Classic Car Studio, listed at $59,900.
