I recall it being discussed in 2011, some speculation it was a recreation, but not sure if it was proven or disproved. Seems the pictures have started recirculating.

One of the aspects that seems conflicting is the car having both 'Yenko' and 'Dana' on it, East and West coast hi-po dealers on the same vehicle?

What about Casey's 4 COPO Corvair that was both Yenko and Dana?

Had no knowledge of it, but found the thread here about it. Seems that it was supplied by Yenko to Dana, but without Yenko badges. Presumably by agreement. So it still seems strange to see a car lettered prominently with both dealers.

Our understanding in the Stinger world on Casey's car is that Dana figured out you could order COPO Corvairs after the initial run of 66 Stingers. Casey's car was ordered with 3 other COPO's by Dana. They were going around Yenko and doing it themselves. We call his car the Dana COPO, since Yenko had nothing to do with it. To me it is more rare and unique than the 67' Stingers.

Looks like an old Z10 with existing patina to which someone added extra patina/aged lettering. I think it's been discussed on here, maybe a few years back.

Thought that too, but the rear stripes don't look correctly placed, for the timeframe of Z10 production.
