One of the more iconic of the dealer Super Camaros was the amazing Yenko Camaro. Unfortunately, Don Yenko built only 198 of them, and as predicted by the law of supply and demand, the price of an original is well beyond the reach of most people. But even if we could afford one, would we really want to be limited to the options and colors chosen by a stranger forty-some years ago? Imagine owning a Yenko Super Camaro for a fraction of the cost and equipped as you desire. If you can imagine it, we can build it. The 1969 BKPE Archetype Yenko, an exact replica of the original, is one phone call away. What can we build for you?

We invite our clients to review these specifications and available options and then click on Pricing Information to obtain information on how to order your own Yenko.
