No, no, no, no. I have a buddy that owns the first ‘65 Corsa. It never had any Spyder badges. Always Corsa! Mike YS-117

Yes - the car in a Florida as pictured, is a Pilot. The owner posted it on a Facebook for $45,000. The market does not seem to bear that price point. Obviously the car still needs quite a bit of work. I owned Pilot #27 for a decade. I knew I wasn’t getting to it anytime soon, so I let it go to another collector. Mike YS-117

The convertible is a power top car too. Glad it’s not close. Mike YS-117

I have found the same, Eric. I can’t believe what these things are going for now. I might have to take the birth certificates out of the safe and put my factory arms in! Mike YS-117

I spoke to Warren about this last week. I’m missing a spring, and he said to just try local hardware store. Basically nothing special, but avoid the barrel spring if you want to be accurate to the originals. Mike YS-117

I always press Nylons in the inner spot. Chances are the trans or diff is going to leak in the future anyway and Nylon will outlast rubber (I have a car that has had them for over 40 years). You can press the Nylon inners into the strut rods with a combination of large washers, short pipe pieces/wrot pipe fittings and all-thread. That way you don’t have to disturb the camber adjustment bolts on t

I have a gold ‘67 500 with the remains of the original paint. 2 wheels are still original and they are black on the inside, with some gold spray through. Mike YS-117

Looks like a April car, by the body tag. Nice survivor, whether it’s 19K or 119K. Mike YS-117

Doug - You will need to shim the clutch fork stud on the diff as well. Approximately 3/8”, IIRC. Mike YS-117

Not to criticize Ken, but when you weld in that panel, try to replicate the factory spot welds closer to the bottom of the channel, as this panel ties in the top of the trough and the toe panel to the fender tops and the windshield frame. This panel helps decrease body flex when welded in at the factory attachment points. Big George - if the middle is good, leave it be and just fix the corners. D

I appreciate your efforts, Eric, as well a Bruce, sharing the process of discovery with us. Almost all of the Stingers were unique cars. They all started off the same, but were quickly changed by both Yenko and their new owners. I believe each one is important to show the history and how different owners made their way through the process of building a race car. From what I have observed, few car

Warren does not believe this car was prepped at Yenko for racing. They didn’t modify the front panel like that. I’ve never seen painted carb tops. I’ve seen the race carbs from several original Stage III cars and they were not painted. I have the race carbs from YS-081 and they are not painted. This is an excellent car, not like any that I’m aware of, but it appears the original owner bought part

No, Dave Stokoski owned the YS-107 identity before he sold it to Pete, who had a really nice ‘67 Monza body. Dave D bought and restored YS-086, with help from Gary Funkhouser and crew, after selling YS-114 to Rob. Mike YS-117

The ‘67 Mark talked about is YS-114. Dave Dietrichs (sp?) owned it / restored it before selling to Rob Landers. Mike YS-117

I would consult your engine builder on adjusting valves. Many people destroy engines because they try to adjust valves that are not needing to be adjusted. Mike YS-117

The rod from the Z bar to the clutch fork is what does the clutch disengaging. The clevis on the end of the clutch cable sets the pedal height. So don’t worry about the clutch cable at first. I set the clutch rod (did one last night), so the fork is just starting to move. You can check with the dust cover off of the bell housing. Then I set the clutch cable for where I prefer the pedal. I don’t l

Lots still missing. The tags go up to at least 400, that I’m aware of. This was a couple hours west of Yenko Chevrolet. Prime territory for a new find. I don’t think the odds are that great for more to come out. Mike YS-117
