9. 1969 Yenko Camaro SYC
One of the cleanest cars from the early F&F days was the LeMans Blue 1969 Yenko Camaro featured in the 2 Fast 2 Furious. Don Yenko was a famous Chevrolet tuner. His Yenko Camaros are among the most coveted American tuner classics on the market next to Shelby’s creations. The cars in the movie were 1969 Yenko Camaro recreations and detailed replicas of Yenko’s pricey works.
Originally, they offered Don Yenko’s cars as a part of the Yenko Performance Package. The basis was a 425-HP, 427 L-72V8, Z/28 suspension and additional gauges, as well as some other mods to make Chevy’s pony car go even faster.
The movie recreations had Cragar S/S rims, and they most probably used a similar 427 L-72 V8 with 425 horsepower. They destroyed the movie car during the final chase in 2 Fast 2 Furious. However, some stunt cars survived. They donated one of them to the Paul Walker Charity ROWW as a tribute to the late actor.
Today, 1969 Yenko Camaros easily go for six figures, yet detailed replicas and recreations of this cool 60’s tuner muscle car go for around $50,000. The original movie car is out of reach, but given the circumstances, that’s for the greater good.
