Yenko Chevrolet Dealership info and their ads... :)
« on: February 14, 2017, 03:27:51 AM »
A post was made on another forum (trifive.com) which detailed a lot of information on the Yenko dealership and some of their ads of the times and their cars, most of which I've never seen before (being from the south)..  but it's very interesting to me, and perhaps to some of you..  :)    Lots of photos also, so I'm just going to post the link...

I always love seeing that picture with all of those COPO's parked out back!

That one black and white picture... man that is a lot of corsairs. Surprised they were that hot of a commodity for them to have that many on hand, and that many stinger conversions. (with the stripe)

Here is a color version of the black and white posted earlier.

Even though my car is not a Yenko, If you look at the prices on base model 1 st gen cars these days, you will be glad you own at least one! ( I know I am thankful for the 1 have)
I have been looking for a clean 67 4 speed car. I can find a bunch of convertibles, but it seems like the hardtops are going for more right now in similar condition ? ? ? ???

Me too!  :)

100 CORVAIRS had to be built for SCCA. 

This link below is an interesting read.  I can not verify that it is 100 percent accurate though.
