I know the one up on ebay with the speed minder is not worth $500 to me.But to some it must be. I have a 140 with out speed minder and had it for sale once for $150, but decided to keep it.

Don't believe everything you read, especially on Ebay. How many 69 SS Camaros have you seen for sale on Ebay that have manual brakes? It's definitely worth asking about questionable parts.

The 140 speedo (w/out speed minder) was offered as part of the COPO 9737 package. This was standard on all '69 Yenko Camaros in conjunction with COPO 9561 (iron block 427) A few non-Yenko cars were also ordered w/COPO 9737.

The 140 speedo was part of the COPO 9737 package. The 1969 Yenko Camaros had this and some of the other COPO Camaros also had it.
