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.

1968 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro
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.


1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro

The second Ultra rare Camaro comes in the form of a 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro with a L72 427/425 HP big block V8 and M21 4-speed transmission. It has the full crop of COPO goodies , which includes the 4.10 Positraction rear end, F41 heavy-duty suspension and rare Fathom Green.
The car has had a full rotisserie restoration and comes with a complete set of documentation to prove its worth.

Both vehicles you can find out further details from the links above.
