Has anyone checked the book "Don Yenko and the Yenko Stinger" by Charlie Bud George on this stinger?
Seems the tag and log book are not with the car?

The book States that it was rebodied using a 65
Also it says the tags and logbook part in one person's possession while the car is in another person possession

Since this may be considered a Stinger kit car, just curious, if the value of the finished and assembled "Stinger Kit Car" without log book would be of little more value than a nicely restored Corsa?

I realize the tags have some value to someone, any thoughts?

The book may be more valuable than the car at this point. Besides, Dave will get it if it's worth the money.

Just my two cents worth here, but to me, a "rebodied" Stinger is little more than a "clone" or "tribute" car.
It is NOT the car that Don Yenko built.
Seriouly, what difference is there than if I went out and built a "Yenko" from a bunch of used or repop parts and then tried to sell it as a real Stinger?

This is a race car. The body is a part that is replaced like a spark plug, a transmission or a fuel tank. Put together correctly, it will be quite valuable.

The tag owner owns the car.

I would have to agree with Moto.
If there is ANY value, it is in the tag, not either of the supposed #116 cars.
Without the tag, it is just a clone at best.

The tag and log book together carry the value. Mainly the tag.

The original tub is destroyed. They didn't call him "Crash" Baker for nothing! I may have the original front crossmember. I worked for Dempsey and got the crossmember from Bill Elliott. Both past owners.

SO, the truth is, there is NO LONGER a YS#116 ! ! !
There are some parts, and even the "Tag and Book", but YS#116 is gone.
The reality as I see it, is even if you have the tag and put it on another shell, IT WILL NOT BE YS#116 !
YS#116 was more than the ORIGINAL body.
More than the "Tag"and "Log-book".
And more than the Yenko parts.
YS#116 was the sum total of all of these things.
REMOVE ANY OF THEM FROM THE EQUATION, AND YOU DO NOT HAVE YS#116!
The only way to call any else YS#116, would be if you could get Don Yenko to lay his hands upon it and pronounce it so.
And that AIN'T gonna happen !

Mel, lots of the yenko cars out there are Rebodies, Race cars get crashed, parts get swapped, the log book and YS-Tag live on even on a different body, parts is parts and in the racing world a new body is just a part.
