Scottymac...I recall that several of the original Stingers ended up with telescopic columns and wood wheels...the original seating position did not suit a lot of drivers

I’ve owned 070, 074 and 095. I still own 070. All 3 of those cars had telescopics originally.

BTW the Charlie Doerge book shows me as deceased. Last time I checked that's not true.

YS 095 is one bad mutha these days. Podium finisher every weekend it comes out. JR and that car are a force to be reckoned with.

I will be at the Mecum auction in Kissimmee, as I do every year for the last few years. I only live about 40 miles from their site and I typically register as a gold bidder with Mecum so if anyone is interested in whatever details or info on this Yenko, send me a PM. The day of its podium run hasn’t been set yet but I would think it’s going to be the last 3 days. However Mecum has been splitting up the high dollar cars across the days to keep people around longer.

I asked for pics of the YS tag, the VIN tag and the Fisher Body Tag and they are attached here.

Looks like a nice car. It will be interesting to see how much it goes for.

Surely Jay's Stinger is a better car as His Guys go through all of His purchases so they are safe drivers

The man who restored YS 054, Leno's Stinger ,called me several times during the restoration to verify information. He,was very thorough..and he bought the car with extensive documentation...don't know of a better Stinger out there.

No doubt about it; nice car.

But since I don't speak fluent Yenko, I wonder if someone could offer some enlightenment about something in the auction promo...

If triple Webers (were these ever offered on the Yenko? I thought not, but what do I know?) produces but 220 hp, how in the heck did Yenko manage his advertised 240 hp?

Or didn't he.

Just curious.

There was one Stinger raced known as the Super Stinger that had Webers. It did not race in Dp. It also had bigger wheels, etc.

Lets just say, Don's dyno and advertising was quite generous in the numbers.

It takes quite a bit to get 220 crank hp that will last for a decent period of time. I speak from experience, as does my check book.

Maybe I will post Jerry Thompson's dyno sheet showing when he achieved 220 hp @ 6,000 Rpm in 1966 with a D/ P engine . I showed this at,a Performance Workshop and it did not get much attention then. As to Weber carbs, Jim Spencer's engine for the 1966 Runoffs at Riverside,2nd place in D / Sports Racing had them, along with,fiberglass doors and front lid.

YS-074 has been scheduled for the last Friday as stock # F237. Auction estimates show $65K to $100K. I think the larger number is wishful thinking but I’ve been wrong before. F237 should run thru early evening.
