On a Camaro road trip in Long Island, NY.  Just bought a complete original L72 engine out of one of the surviving Yenko 427 cars.  19N615842.

Will rebuild and detail it here at CHP, dyno and then find the current owner of the car.

Jerry,
 
  Shouldn't that be 79N615842 not 19N615842. Didn't all Yenko Camaros started with 124379N. That vin comes back to a Fathom Green Turbo bought from
Karen Chevrolet in Phillipsburg, NJ. Problably spent at lot of time at Englishtown Raceway during it's day.   Huh

NEVER QUESTION THE MASTER. THE PARTIAL VIN THE 1 MEANS CHEVROLET, 9 IS 69, N IS NORWOOD AND THE SEQUENTIAL VIN.

   You are so right, this wasn't meant to question the master. So then my statement and Jerry's statment are correct. This is one in the same vehicle.

How do you know the details of the car based on the VIN number?  Is there a Yenko database or do you have other insight and if so I have a VIN for my Z28 I'd love some info on.  :-)

Copies of Yenkos' handwriiten COPO inventory sheets have been around for decades. Several sites list the VINs, a few of which are in dispute due to the poor legibility of the copies. Some of the Chevrolet paperwork for the cars still exists because one of the mechanics was wise enough to rescue it from a dumpster in the '70s.

Let's hope that Yenko Camaro is still around. It would be nice to the car get it's born with engine.

The chassis & engine were separated many years ago, common practice with both ZL-1s & L72s. The phrasing of the statement may have created the impression it happened last week.

The car still exists.

Interesting eBay listing considering the above information.  Thought CHP owned it.

After posting the information almost a year ago, I'm sure Jerry sold it to the eBay member selling it.
