Yenko Stingers- Here We Go Again
Posted by: yenko charlie ()
Date: April 08, 2008 03:33PM

While I knew YS086 was going on the block at the Mecum Auction on May 15-19th, I just checked their site and found another one. No YS number is given, but they say it is the 28th of 100, so I'd assume it is YS028. Let the games begin..... Charlie

Still #1 on Google search engine for Yenko Stinger!

Somday you'll hopefully get a chance to look at several of these cars and check your "secret" ID lists....

Might be fun!

It appears that Tom Clary is running at least 3 of his cars thru the Mecum Auction in May.One is a Camaro he has represented as " Don Yenko's " which I believe was built by Jerry Thompson and driven by Don a couple of times .

YS-028 is similar to 091 is some ways - not so in others. Much more authentic. Oddly enough, YS-028 went through Mike C. at Wholesale California, as did 091, 003 and 199. I think 097 might have as well...

Mike,

Curious... What can you tell us about YS-028?

Same as 091 in that it's a "rebody" and not the ACTUAL car that Yenko sold as stinger # 028.

No mention of a Yenko tag either - fake or otherwise.


I still don't see how a totally different car can be Yenko stinger if it didn't start out as one. ??????


If I tore up a 100 dollar bill - I couldn't take a one dollar bill and tape some pieces of the 100 on it and call it a real 100 dollar bill .

The law would call it a counterfeit .

Even if I taped on the serial numbers too

From auction >>>

This Corvair is 28 of 100 built, Yenko built about 140 but the first 100 are more desirable. This car is well documented with Protecto-plate, original invoice signed by Don Yenko, the Yenko work order and original title. Yenko items include sail panels, glas rear deck lid, etc. This car is a stage II, which means it has 4 single carbs and headers. This car has been re-bodied. This car is a nice driver and a great candidate to restore.


He says "this corvair is 28 out of 100 built" . He says well documented with protecto plate.Original title and invoice.

Only problem for me is that it's not the 28th Stinger built.

The protecto plate is not for the car being sold and neither are the title and invoice.

They are for a different car, YS 028 wherever it is !

He says the first 100 are more valuable too but this one wasn't one of the first 100 built.

All IMHO and confused.

The seller says that the car has been re-bodied, the seller also says that it is a great candidate to restore, Restore to what??? YS-028?? or what ever the donor body was??? Just what would you restore this to???? And when you get done, all you would have is a clone I guess and not a restored original. To me this reboding all seems a bit fishy if not illeagal.

It has the original tag and many other original parts. 091 really set a new level in saving an identity - and yet still sold for more than the most original '66 Corsa ever will.
This car has a lot more of the original fabric. Let's not rehash the re-body discussion again.

Kevin: Regardless of what else you tape to it, if you have greater than 50% of the hundred dollar bill (even if you don't have any serial numbers!), you still have a hundred dollar bill. Unlike the cars (where the US is pretty much alone in not having laws covering them) there are very specific laws on currency.

BTW - this car also has a very important piece of documentation that 091 did not and assures that no one else will show up with the same car one day - the real TITLE with 028's VIN on it!

My 64 vair has a 65 engine in it. Do I have a rebodied 65? just wondering.

It's a step in the right direction, but SCCA still wouldn't let you race in D/P back in the day.

...and I wasn't going to comment on it. Just feels like we are beating the same drum over and over again. Not upset at you Rick, just saying... We shall see what the market says.

Why bring up a thread from April 2008?

Is there a new Yenko auction starting somewhere?
