’69 Yenko Camaro
This is one Camaro that is deceptive from the get-go. From a distance it looks like another nice Yenko clone. Dig into the details and you’ll find that this build goes deeper than others. Although not originally a Yenko, this series of SPEC Camaros are officially endorsed by Yenko. While the graphics and overall appearance remind you of a restoration, the underpinnings will not. A SPEC Roadster Shop chassis with 14-inch Baer brakes handles some major new power. There’s a Don Hardy–built 427 LS underhood dressed as a stock GM powerplant.
The 18-inch Atlas Mags complement the retro styling but offer up room for big brakes and 335mm rear tires. That retro style runs through the interior as well. Stock shapes remain but most everything is fit and finished with new high-end materials.
