The original owner has a great memory...his initial test drive was with his dad in the back seat ..He was in the passenger seat and the original salesman Ron Lane gave them a wild ride up onto route 79 that wasn’t open yet. Later as he got the car inspected for Pennsylvania registration(car came with Doug Headers) ...Don Yenko himself gave him a wild ride as well.

The original owner is a great guy that I call SuperMan because of his preservation of this car ...parking it in a heated garage in 1973 and the original color combination of Nantucket Blue with Red Deluxe Gut. According to the protect o plate he lived in Latrobe Pennsylvania when he bought the car new. He was just 19 years old. I have learned a lot from him over the last 9 years about his life with the car and just 7,257 original miles.

Doug congratulations on your purchase

Did it come with a 1968 Yenko hood when new?
What is the purchase date of the car?
Did you get any baby pictures with it?

sounds like an interesting 67 Yenko Camaro

Thank you guys...my intentions are to ensure that the original owner is proud ...he has agreed to come to a few shows as his time permits. Joe...he went to Yenko Chevrolet and started the purchase process March 4, 1968...he dealt with Don Yenko himself and the salesman Ron Lane...they agreed to do the conversion....he went back to pick up the car March 16, 1968. It took 12 days to complete. Unfortunately there are no baby pictures...due to an unfortunate divorce. In the 5 sheets of Yenko paperwork the owner wanted a 68 SS Hood because he liked the louvers better....the hood is a weird story because when the paint was stripped away there was Corvette Bronze paint underneath.

The ride with Don reminds me of Ray Morrison's ride with Dick Harrell when he bought his Nova. You can't beat those ride stories.
