Barrett-Jackson didn't have all the cool Camaros this week. We found these two Hugger Orange 427s at Russo and Steele. While not a themed set like over at Westworld, we couldn't help but combine them for a post. The first one is pictured above and detailed immediately below, while the second is after the jump.

It has the radio delete, console delete, cowl induction hood, heater delete, power disc brakes and Hurst shifter. Ultimate stripper lightweight factory race car.

1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro Tribute - #6728 No Sale
If the 396 Chevy ordered through the normal order form wasn't enough to sate your appetite, and COPO connections weren't in the cards, you could always go to one of the dealers that had special pull with GM. One of the most famous was Don Yenko Chevrolet. The "Yenko Super Camaro" was born by stuffing the 425hp 427 into a 1969 Camaro. The resulting Yenko SYC could be ordered with either the M22 4-speed or the Turbo hydro-matic transmission for just $4245.00. A far cry from the 6-digit figures they command today. This vinyl-topped sample happens to be a nut & bolt restoration Camaro that has been built as a perfect re-creation. Except for the engine, which has been pushed to 500hp. Very pretty car.
