The most feared muscle car from 1969 gets new life…

GM Car of the Year winner Heartland Customs partners with Covercraft to unveil the 1969 YENKO SPEC-Camaro #001 at SEMA 2019.  These two powerhouse companies team up again to display a show stopping vehicle in the Covercraft booth. The car is set to be unveiled on Wednesday, November 6th at 11:00 am in booth #23243.

The SPEC Camaro Program is a concept developed by custom builder Jeff Page.  SPEC Camaro is a program where a customer can choose their favorite year model of Camaro from 1967-1969 and the options to go with it.  Heartland Customs will locate an original donor car and build the Camaro to 2019 specs while keeping it looking as original as possible.  This is all done at a set cost so the customer knows exactly what the build will cost and can enjoy the process.  These cars are built in multiple option levels just like GM had it structured originally.  Base model, Super Sport, Z/28 and even the mighty YENKO.  All YENKO model are Officially Licensed by GMCI and come with a YENKO Letter of Authenticity.

We are very excited to again display a car in the Covercraft booth at SEMA 2019. This partnership has greatly benefited both companies over the past few years and given both companies a venue to show off their amazing products jointly. - Jeff Page – CEO Heartland Customs

YENKO SPEC-Camaro #001’s design starts with the custom chassis that was manufactured by the Roadster Shop in Mundelein, IL.  We were very particular on what we wanted to achieve in performance and looks, and the Roadster Shop delivered a chassis that gave us exactly what we wanted.  The performance and handling of this car is unmatched but yields a comfortable touring ride.  The exterior has the fit and finish that all Heartland Customs vehicles are famous for and the unmistakable YENKO badging.  Step into the cabin and you will discover a retro OEM inspired custom interior with lush Moore and Giles leather, one-piece Alcantara headliner and original houndstooth cloth appointments by the craftsmen at Sculpt Garage in San Marcos, TX.  From the original looking gauges with LED backlighting and LCD screens to the factory look stereo with Bluetooth and hands-free calling, every detail has been planned and executed to perfection.

Covercraft has featured the amazing Corvettes that Heartland Customs produces, and we are thrilled to host their YENKO SPEC-Camaro #001 this year. Heartland won the GM Design Award at last year’s SEMA Show and I won’t be surprised if this incredible Camaro brings home some hardware this year. - Jeff Jegelewicz - Covercraft Industries
