1968 Chevy Corvair “Yenko Stinger” Stage I Clone Street legal race car Flat 6 rear engine Dual Carbs Independent rear suspension Fuel cell Roll Bar Racing seat New tires all the way around including spare New brakes I do not have any log books some a few notes The Yenko Stinger was Don Yenko’s first attempt at building a series of dealer prepped vehicles for the performance minded driver. He stripped the cars of all non-essentials; radio, bumpers, dash pads, carpet, etc to lighten the cars for racing. Don hoped to do with the Corvair, what Carroll Shelby did with the Mustang. The Yenko Stinger was first produced with a fleet of 100 Corvair Corsas that were ordered by Don, with the idea of homologating them for SCCA racing. All 100 cars were delivered to the dealership beginning the first week of December 1965, and were completed the first week of January 1966. Initially the car was built in 4 “Stages”, from mild to wild. Total production over a 15 year period was approximately 185 vehicles. Don later went on to build the Yenko Super Camaro, Yenko Duece, Yenko Chevelle, Yenko Super Nova, Yenko Stinger 2 (a Vega), Yenko Turbo Z (Camaro), etc. None of them had the handling of the Stinger (although they were among the quickest vehicles ever produced). Why blend in with every other Gen 1 Camaro, Chevelle, Nova Corvette or Mustang. Stand out in the crowd of classics with this rare gem.
