1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro RS/SS 427 CI Matador Red

4 hits ID #8058

Description

Originally constructed around a L78 SS396 model, the COPO 9737 “Sports Car Conversion” put a 140 MPH speedometer in the dash, added a bigger 1.69 sway bar, and installed better cooling components and tires on the car right on the assembly line. Yenko’s mechanics then swapped in an L72 427 CI counter-exchange short-block for the line-installed L78 396, using the L78’s heads, intake and accessories. This car features its original Yenko-installed block, correct Winters cast-aluminum intake manifold, and the M21 4-speed transmission behind that. Unlike many stripped-down 1969 COPO 9761 Camaros, this rare combination RS/SS has style to spare, with Matador Red paint, a black interior with matched black vinyl top and striping, front and rear spoilers, Yenko’s unique twin-scoop fiberglass hood and Yenko’s special Pontiac Rally II wheels with Yenko center caps. Power steering and power front disc brakes are here, as are the 140 MPH speedometer, Yenko-installed Stewart Warner tach and optional gauges, and Delco AM radio. Traction bars complete the look of “supercar,” and Yenko and 427 badging are prominently placed on the body.
