I thought 2 white ones have been found?

If he ordered 4 cars in each of the 6 traditional Yenko Colors for a total of 24 and 1 black one, where do the 2 white ones fall in since white was not a Yenko color?

Soon after the initial order of 24, in the 6 traditional colors, it was detirmined that they may not need (EXAMPLE) 4 Olympic Gold  Douglass Yenkos and the 4 were split into two Dover White and two OG. These Changes were made after the order was placed.

Both Dover White Douglass Yenkos are found and they are consecutive body numbers. Both have very interesting Histories. Milt Robson had one restored as found/Yenko Stripes and badges even though he knew nothing about the Douglass Story.

I have to ask, the douglas 'black' car, would it have been striped like a Yenko, like the white douglas cars? Just had to ask.....that would be something to see.

I have seen the wht/blk Yenko striped Camaro and black/wht striped cars (clone) and thought they both look very cool

As far as the black Douglass 427 COPO, I don't think there is any documentation on the Douglass 427 COPO cars so I don't know how you can tell if they are all 9737s or had Yenko stripes installed unless you have baby pictures or original paint or sales docs.
