1 Of 3 Yenko Turbo Z Stage IIs Ever Made Up For Grabs

In 1981 the Yenko-era in its original form was coming to an end and this Camaro was representative of that. This 1981 Yenko Turbo Z would become one of just 19 built that year and represent the last of the Yenko Camaros and the end of their partnership with Chevrolet.

Slated for around 200 units just 19 would find their way into production with an even smaller number, three, of these Stage Its being produced. Surviving some 38 years this Camaro was no stranger to the streets acquiring 38,852 actual miles during that time. A new turbocharger for the ’81 one would help shave three-seconds off the quarter-mile time verse the regular 350 CI Z28 engine and feature a “Turbo 350 transmission and G80 Positraction 3.08:1 final gearing.” All the while in compliance with emissions standards in all 50 states.

This legendary Yenko will be auctioned off in Florida this weekend at Mecum Kissimmee and stands to become the prime jewel of any Yenko collection or any collection for that matter.
