Yenko was very busy in 1967 with racing and sponsorship

Don ran a 1967 L88 Corvette that was a twin of the Dana L88 that went to LeMans

Jerry Thompson won the D/P National Championship in a Yenko Stinger and ran the 67 Camaro

Yenko sponsored 3 Dick Harrell drag cars with the Yenko Super Camaro Dealers
sponsorship

an AHRA Super Stock 427 Camaro and 2 funny cars

the Stinger site lists the YS 005 Jerry Thompson Stinger as "distroyed"

I heard the 67 Yenko/Harrell Camaro FC was found but not sure

The 67 L88 Yenko Corvette and the twin Dana Corvette have both been shown as restored

I don't recall if any others have been found
