HIGHWAY 61 50696 h50696
Chevrolet Camaro Douglas Yenko 427 white with black vinyl top LE (1/750) by Supercars Heard the STORY of a White (DOUGLAS) Yenko? This 1969 Yenko Camaro is Dover White, with black stripes, black vinyl roof, an endura bumper, the 5 spoke torque thrust mags, and it is a bit different from any other 1:18 Yenko Camaro ever built. Now the story as we know it: Don Yenko did sell semi-loads of Yenko's to other dealers. Douglas Chevrolet was one of those, and at one point arranged so they could just buy the stripes, lettering, badges, etc', to install on COPO cars they ordered themselves - to save shipping money (instead of cars being sent to Yenko - and then sent to Douglas). On the Douglas made Yenko's the "bowties" were left on the car, there was no 427 emblem put on the rear body panel, but a '"Jack Douglas" decal was placed on the rear body panel instead. These were not very well known until a few years ago, and some will still debate them. This is a replica of a documented real 1969 Douglas Yenko Camaro. Photo of REAL car HERE. AND Photo's of the 1:18 car HERE. It's real - with the real ones are very rare - and this 1:18 replica will really stand out in any collection! Wired, plumbed, cables, hoses, carpeting, sliding seats, metal e-brake cables, just cool nice detailed cars. The 1st Yenko Camaro in a non-Don Yenko Chevrolet color, and 1st with an endura front bumper!
