Highway 61 1969 Chevrolet Camaro 427 Yenko

Post by Gavin » Wed Mar 13, 2019 10:53 am

For 1969, only 201 Camaros were produced by the bearing the Yenko name, which was a Pennsylvania dealership. All were powered by Chevy's 427ci V8 with approximately 450hp, though likely underrated.

Produced by Highway 61 for Supercars Collectibles, this model was a limited edition of 504. Produced with the trademark Yenko stripes in black, instead of the more common white, giving it a more sinister, sleeper look. Highway 61 did a fantastic job on these '69 Camaros.

That's an awesome piece and colour! I love this era of Camaro. When was this one released?

Fathom Green!

Not 100% sure on release date. I bought it 2nd hand in 2010...I'm thinking 2006-ish.

I thought this looks similar to the soon-to-be-released 50th Anniversary Z/28 by ACME.

Then I compared the jacking tool in the trunk. It is the same mold!

Nevertheless, I love this body style but will hold out for a more vibrant colour like yellow or blue.

It absolutely is...luckily, they're still being produced, though now by ACME.

Yup...ACME has purchased a lot of the old H61 & Lane molds. Definitely a good thing for muscle car collectors.
