« on: August 16, 2017, 07:42:20 PM »
Came across this ad for the first prototype Yenko Camaro? Anyone know the story with this car? Not on the list I have seen?

YES ITS THE REAL DEAL verified by Lynn Yenko

Nothing like an endorsement from someone doing federal time for embezzlement.

What a crock of BS.
Nothing indicating it was special, no docs. Been discussed at length on syc.

Boy, am I out of the loop.  Had no idea Lynn Yenko had been convicted of embezzling.  Sad.

The article states she was 60 years old when convicted. She was 12 years old when that car was built.

I believe that so called Yenko prototype was restored and "researched" by Jim B from CARS who also made 1969 Yenko and 427 COPO replicas and also had legal issues with at least one of the Camaros seized by the sheriff and sold at auction

There is not one original document showing the car was shipped to Yenko Chevrolet. Zero.

All the docs they are so proud of were generated within the last few years.
