Scott, great thread, and research on your part as always !

Here's an ad for Francis Chevrolet promoting the sports cars, drag cars and high performance cars,  with a '68 Yenko Super

 Camaro, was this a 427 car ? Are those Pontiac Rally wheels on the car ?

Don't know what paper this was from, had it in my files a long time.

Thanks for adding that cool ad Mike.  Yes those look to be Pontiac wheels and I assume it had the 427.  Despite the car being a 1968 model year Yenko Camaro I believe the ad was run sometime between March 22nd and April 12, 1969.  It mentions that Don Yenko had been  the "winning driver at the Citris 250 at Daytona" and the "GT class of Sebring 12-hour endurance race."  These took place on February 21, 1969 and March 22, 1969 respectively, and the ad mentions that the meet and greet would take place on "Saturday, April 12."  April 12th was a Saturday in 1969, not 1968.  Francis Chevrolet was located in Bridgeton, Missouri, near St. Louis.  Another ad for this dealership appears in Reply #11 on the first page of this thread.
