Start with a standard black interior (no console) 4-speed (M-21), 68 CE 427 block, some emblems, special fiber glass hood, Pontiac wheels with red lines. You will have trouble finding the Red Y for the centers though. Some SW gauges. Heavy duty suspension (12 bolt rear) Paint the car Corvette Bronze and your ready to go

Here is you a good photo of one of the sharpest cars out there to use as reference while doing your build on your car.

The resto on this Yenko Camaro was completed in 1992 and it still looks as good as it did back then!!!!

Re: 1968 Yenko Camaro

That Grotto blue car in the links above looks great. If anyone has pictures of the interior of that car please e-mail them to me. I just bought a Grotto Blue Camaro and would like to see pictures of the blue interior so I can make mine correct. Got me thinking of buying one of those Yenko knockoff hoods now! They look great

Question Re: 1968 Yenko Camaro

I'm pretty sure all the COPO 9737s came with standard black interior? Kevin Suydam's car has red interior but I thought that was the exception? I think there were 3 or 4 68 Yenkos that were not COPOs and they could well have had a different color. I think we need an expert on this one!!!!!!!!!

Re: 1968 Yenko Camaro

Well you are sort of right. Most 9737 were ordered by Yenko, and Yenko ordered nothing but black standard interiors, so most 9737 would be black interior. However, the interior color and 9737 were totally seperate, so technically, any interior could be ordered with the COPO 9737.

The 9737 package was a well kept secret. I know Berger knew about it and ordered some double COPOs, and it seems like one other dealer, but I can't remember which. Douglas? Gibb?

Re: 1968 Yenko Camaro

I don't think you can make any absolute rules on the Yenko cars. Most had black interior but not all. There is both a 1967 and a 1968 blue Yenko Camaro with blue interior and I think Rob's Grn Yenko Chevelle has Grn interior and Grn vinyl top. Most Yenko's with vinyl tops had black. Then you have the Douglass Yenko cars that may have come with different interior colors.
