Yenko and COPO Camaros At Mecum Portland

By  | 

By David Ashton

Mecum auctions are always a center spot for some of the most prized muscle cars on the planet, if you are bidding or not. Their auction taking place between June 16 and 17th in Portland is no exception, with a huge variety of star muscle cars on offer.

The featured lots include a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe, 1965 Shelby GT350 Fastback, 1966 Pontiac GTO Coupe, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6, 1969 Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds, 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner and a 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS, but the standouts for me are the 1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro and the 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro. Both encompass not just the most rare in the pony/muscle car world, but also that of classic racing of the time.

This example is a 427/425 HP Yenko Camaro YS-8022 believed to be only one of 20 in existence. It has a M21 4 speed transmission with a 12 bolt 3.73 Positraction rear end and comes in a rare Fathom Blue. It will be very interesting to see what price this car eventually goes for.
