Now, I am a little confused? Regarding grille color:  Did not all COPOs come with the Argent grille? Did Yenkos come with Black? I have looked at so many conflicting pictures , I am not 100% sure? I am sure COPOs came with Argent, just need clarification on Yenkos. Was there ever a Yenko with RS?

The grill in this car is correct.

There are some RS COPOs, but I can't think of any RS Yenkos at the moment.

I'm confused too....  need some expert clear clarification... :)

1) Are ALL 1969 Yenko Camaros also COPO9561??  OR did Yenko convert some 69's totally themselves (as they did '67-68) before 9561 was initiated?

2) wasn't the COPO 9561 a 'mechanical modification' within the factory??  ie. installing the 427 engine?? and didn't the Yenko dealership perform the cosmetic modifications?? 

3)  If (2) is true, WHY would GM perform a special 'cosmetic' modification (ie. painting over the Fisher blackout on X66 cars)??

All 1969 Yenko's were 9561's and 9537's

NO RS YENKO's in 1969...

Gary,
The 9561 triggered an exception or modification of the L78.
There are sheets from GM showing the deleting of emblems and engine CUI call outs.
The reason they started with the L78 was it was the easiest way to get the correct suspension and other items, XT wheels etc.
The 9561 added the ZL2, L72, and HD 4.10 which also triggered HD cooling (curved neck radiator).
The 9537 added the 15" wheels and the 140 speedometer. 

As far as the lower black out goes... it would have only been an issue on the initial 50 cars as they were the only X66 coded Yenko's.
The remaining 150 cars were either X11 - lower blackout or X44 no lower blackout.

One could imagine if Fisher Norwood were the final assembly point then the first 50 may have received black grilles, however Chevrolet Norwood was the final assembly point and thus we are not faced with that quandary.

Yes

James meant 9737 sports car conversion not 9537.

Do you have any more pics of the engine bay and/or trunk?  Does it have the original spare tire?

So I'm confused now. Yenko's had black grilles? Is that what I'm reading? I can't tell for sure the one pictured is black, but it looks too dark to be silver?

Thanks for the correction Steve... yes 9737.
69 Yenko's had silver grilles.

Here is a picture of the overspray which migrates from the rear as only the front of the argent section was masked.

Awesome car. But are you sure this car is 100 percent original paint? I am starting to wonder...

I asked Bill (William) about this. The X66 told the Fisher side to do the lower blackout. But on the Chevrolet side, the COPO designation was in effect. So yes, the Chevrolet side of the assembly painted the lowers yellow and used yellow fenders. I hope I got that right.

Are there any known COPOs with original paint and lower blackout?

I am not sure on the above, based on some recent information on an original paint early Yenko.  Just don't take it for gospel. It may have happened that way on some cars, but maybe not all.

Byron, I have seen a couple of Original paint early cars in EARLY photos which appear to have the rockers black, so I am going to say they may have been both ways.
