    I didn't ask. I figure it's atleast $40k, and wouldn't be suprised to see twice that.

    That looks like one of the cars that were hidden in that semi trailer stash.

    Yenko's are cool, but I'm more of a Baldwin-Motion fan.

    Nice car, but why would anyone put aftermarket rims on a Yenko? :crazy:

    They are not aftermarket rims. Many Yenkos came with those mags. They were an option Yenko installed on those cars other than the GM rally wheels. I believe they are American wheels. I have seen a few Yenkos with those exact same rims. IIRC most of those COPO Camaros left the factory with plain old black steel rims. Rims and tires were upgraded by Yenko and the other Dealers that were building them back them

    Nice , but I never understood why dealer mods were so special . It seems like a nice way out for consumers who didn't want to get dirty modifying their own chit :thumb:

    Quite right, thunder.. the wheels are "american racing torque thrust D's" .. while I think the ones in the picture are aftermarket, ( they look big) the wheel itself has been around since forever, and was available from yenko. I bought a set of 15 x 7's for my 69, and they changed the whole look of the car.

    The limited production, and the fact you got a very powerful NEW car is what makes them special..

    Bcause a COPO Camaro was the only way You could get a L72 427 cid engine in a Camaro. The only wat to get one of those Camaros was to buy it from Yenko or a few other dealers who were authorised by GM to build them. They were ungodly fast ...Ran in the 12s right off the showroom floor on stock tires.
    With a few more mods they ran in the tens easy

    Rim diameter appears to be much larger than the 14" or 15" that would have been on that car when new...compare the pic's.

    I see a lot more sidewall on these tires...

    Either way, if they are aftermarket I'm sure he has the originals safely tucked out of harms way.

    I know the history of the cars . 1969 were factory motors ( 67-68 Yenko REMOVED the factory motor and dropped in another ) I am a GM purist . I just don't believe they are anything special .

    The ones back-doored without the added on "dealer" stripes and sold at some of the other dealers are my favorite .

    I would of loved to have been alive back then to get a dog dish hubcapped COPO in a plain wrapper :D
