Jim - Have photos of the car bearing No. 75, I take it that might indicate it was YS-075. The Yenko Stinger COPO page IDs first owner as Jim Spencer in Illinois, but no initial sale date. MK On Wednesday, January 1, 2020, 1:32:28 PM CST, Jim Becker <mr.jebecker at gmail.com> wrote:
You probably already know the it was entered in the race as car number 75.
If not, does it help to know it? Was this before people started using the
Yenko serial number for the car number?

Subject: Yenko Stinger History
I'm writing an article for the Show-Me Corvair Club newsletter concerning
the participation of a '65 Corvair (presumably Monza, driven by Spurgeon May
and Bobby Allison) and a Yenko Stinger in the February 1966 Daytona
Continental 24-hour race. The Stinger was sponsored by McMillan Ring Free
Oil and driven by Art Riley and Flushing, NY, Chevrolet dealer Russ
MacGrotty. I checked the Yenko Stinger Archives online, MacGrotty is listed
as the seller of a Stinger in mid-1966, but wasn't able to determine which
YS he ran at Daytona.
Anyone out there know which car MacGrotty and Riley drove, and the car's
current disposition/owner? Thanks in advance.
