In the 3 year run, there were a total of 371 Yenko Super Camaros produced: 106 in 1967, 64 in 1968 and 201 in 1969.
The Chevrolet Corvette started production in the 1953 model year and as we close out the 2018 model year, the Corvette is still proving to be a winner. In 65 years of production we have seen many changes, improvements, refinements... all rolled into 7 series. Out of 65 years there was one year that the corvette was not produced for public consumption (although 43 prototypes were produced). What model year was that? For bonus points (or at least a pat on the back) what was the total Corvette production from 1953 to the end of the 2018 model year?
The Yenko Super Camaro was a modified Chevrolet Camaro prepared by Yenko Chevrolet, developed by the dealership owner and racer, Don Yenko. When the Camaro debuted, a General Motors corporate edict prevented it from carrying an engine larger than 400 cu in. Don Yenko and others knew there was a market for a more powerful Camaro and found ways around the GM limit. In 1967 and 1968 Yenko started with L78 396 SS cars (ordered with COPO 9737 packages) and swapped in L72 427 engines. For 1969, Yenko worked with Chevrolet to have the L72 engines installed on the factory assembly line using a Corporate Office Production Order (COPO). How many Yenko Super Camaros were produced in the 3 year run?
